Mumbai The first poster of Fawad Khan and Sanam Saeed starrer family drama Barzakh was unveiled at the Series Mania festival in France, where the show is set to have its global premiere.
Ahead of its world premiere at the Series Mania festival, the makers of Zindagi original show ‘Barzakh’ unveiled the poster of the show starring actors Fawad and Sanam in the French city of Lille.
‘Barzakh’ is directed by critically acclaimed director Asim Abbasi, who also directed Zindagi’s first original Churrells and the feature film Cake. Gracing the event were writer-director Asim Abbasi, actor Sanam Saeed and producer Shailja Kejriwal.

Barzakh is a story I connected with the moment I heard it and the story penned by Asim Abbasi will renew our faith in love and life. It not only inspired me to take up a challenging role but also made me look at life in a different light. It is very different from what we have seen on screen and all the actors have played very different and varied roles. I am very proud of this series and am honored to have its world premiere at the Series Mania festival.

Amidst the excitement, we are extremely excited. Proud to present the poster of the series.
Barzakh has come to fruition through the unified passion, vision and bravery from all involved and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every cast and crew member, as we could not have undertaken this ambitious project alone. We hope that viewers and fans of origin stories around the world will share our passion and love for this series.(IANS)
