Dia Mirza and Mohit Raina share special moments from Zee5's new show 'Kaafir'

Zee5's upcoming web series, Kaafir, has already impressed the audience with its intriguing storyline, stellar cast, and the visuals. In a recently organised event, the cast and makers of the show shared their special moments about the show. Kaafir showcases the journey of a young Pakistani mother who comes into India through a strange series of circumstances and is unable to go back home. The series further revolves around the relationship between this accused militant and her lawyer who makes her justice, his mission.

The evening began with a talk, where the cast and members shared excerpts from their life, which closely relate to the emotion of the show. Talking about the concept, Dia Mirza said, "It takes a beautiful soul to write a story like Kaafir. Conversations like these are very important, something we need to have. For a while, I've wanted to share that I was born to a Bengali mom and a Christian father, raised in a Muslim home. I always had a question about who I was and I was always asked the same. So I asked my mom, who told me to be nothing but a  good human being, teaching me that the first religion for us to follow should always be, humanity."

Adding to this thought, Mohit Raina said, "The message is simple and clear. Humanity is the biggest religion we should have. We have to realise that this is taking a back step today, and we people have to be kind and affectionate to everyone."

The show is written by eminent writer Bhavani Iyer, who shared her thoughts about writing this story and said, "Just when I decided to start working on Kaafir, I got a chance to go to Srinagar. Whilst there I met a boy (aged 8) who was happy that he did not have to go to school because of curfew, but his elder brother told us about being investigated by the security forces there. It was exciting for him, but we were worried. If you think about it, kids there are raised in a different way for a  difficult lifestyle they live with. However tense the situation was, the message I learned is that they find joy within the troubles they have, and this was moving."

The event was also attended by producer Sidharth P Malhotra, director Sonam Nayar, lyricist Swanand Kirkire and others. The show will stream on Zee5 from June 15, 2019.
