One year after its Dubai-produced TV drama Parwaaz (Flight) wrapped up, Zee TV is all set to launch another UAE-set drama called Khwabon Ke Darmiyaan (Amidst Dreams). And the TV channel is looking to cast actors locally as well.
The first round of auditions were held in August and phenomenal talent was discovered.
The final auditions are going to be held between 18th, 19th & 20th September where all age groups are welcome from all nationalities for speaking and non-speaking roles, according to Zee TV. “Since the idea is to represent the city of Dubai, we need as diverse a group as possible, they’ll just have to bear in mind that this is a South Asian production” said a Zee TV representative.
While Parwaaz followed the lives two expats in the UAE, one Pakistani and one Indian, Khwabon Ke Darmiyaan will be the fictional story of a Dubai based real estate business tycoon named Ikram Malik and his team where they work together to diversify from real estate to a huge developer in this city. The story has a great balance with the family life of the characters apart from displaying the high-life work culture that UAE has to offer.
Pakistani movie actor Javed Shaikh, who has starred in a number of Bollywood productions, will play the tycoon while prominent Indian & Pakistani star cast have also been casted as other characters.
Many budding talents from UAE have been selected in the first audition rounds & this final round will be looking for people who haven’t auditioned yet.
“The show’s story will relate to and inspire non-resident South Asians living in the UAE. It’s a story which gives hope to budding entrepreneurs and hardworking people chasing their dreams in the UAE,” said the representative.
Filming of the series is set to begin by end of September.
Auditions will be held at Elite Films & Media Works, A-14 at the International Media Production Zone (IMPZ). For any further queries, you can get in touch by calling +971 4 4307786 or +971 52 404015.”
