Hajra Yamin’s upcoming drama serial is based on ‘watta satta’

Hajra Yamin’s upcoming drama, Meray Apnay, casts her in the lead role alongside Ali Abbas. The drama will air on ARY Digital.

Talking to a reputed media outlet, Yamin gave in the details of the drama. She told that other than her and Ali, prominent actors like Zoya Nasir, Waseem Abbas, and Zainab Shabbir are also a part of the serial.

The storyline of the drama revolves around a common social issue of ‘watta satta’ or exchange marriage. The Ehd-e-Wafa actress believes that the public will resonate with the drama. Giving an insight into the story, Hajra said, ‘Basically it is a story revolving around two households but it’s one big family. In the family, the characters played by Ali and myself, we like each other. The father, because he wants to make his family financially secure, insists that we marry through watta satta.’

The drama, according to ARY, depicts a ‘slice of life.’

The public, however, has mixed views about the upcoming serial. Many expressed that they are bored with the same stories which revolve around marriage. Users commented under the teaser calling out the industry for copying Indian drama serials.
