How to get an ‘X-rated’ TV show in Pakistan
A Pakistani TV producer says he got an ‘out of this world’ experience after he watched an Indian show on an ‘exotic’ channel in the country.
Zulfiqar Abbasi, a producer for TV channel ‘Youth Television’, was one of those lucky ones who was able to watch ‘The World Is Beautiful’ in Pakistan.
The show is set in a fictional country where the protagonist lives.
However, the story takes place in the fictional world and the characters are ‘not really human’, said Abbasi.
“We all know how human life is in Pakistan, how we suffer, how poor our lives are, but this show was amazing, it was so authentic, it showed a very human side of Pakistan,” said Abbasa.
“The first time I saw it, I cried.
I couldn’t believe what I was watching.”
When the channel went back to Pakistan, Abbasi decided to film the show in a studio, which had been set up by the producers for the show.
“When I saw the footage, I was like, I have to tell you guys about this show.
This is my dream job.”
The producers also filmed a trailer in the Pakistani language and Abbasi was impressed by the language.
“I was really impressed with the way the producers translated the show into Pakistani.
This show is actually really, really well produced,” said Ali Abbasi who was also one of the show’s actors.
“It was really authentic and very professional, it’s very well done.”
The show has been viewed on Pakistani television channels like ‘Hindustan Times’, ‘Tehelka’ and ‘Al Jazeera English’.
The show, a drama set in the fictitious ‘Pakistan’, is set during the turbulent times of the countrys independence from Britain in 1947.
The Pakistani show, which has been dubbed ‘The End of Pakistan’, has been a success in Pakistan and is seen on various television channels.
Abbasi has worked with the show for a few months and has been impressed with how the producers are handling the show and the quality of the content.
“They really have taken care of it,” he said.
“This is my first experience with a Pakistani show in my life.
I can’t say enough about how professional they are, it looks really authentic.”
The programme has also been watched by several other Pakistani viewers.
“There are people who are watching this programme who are also familiar with this show in the UK and in the USA.
This programme is a very unique experience, so I am very happy that I was able the experience this way,” said Haji Naseem, a student from the town of Alor, in the Sindh province.
