Zee TV’s new general entertainment channel Zindagi will premiere Pakistani TV show Aunn Zara in India. The popular serial, taking a cue from the Shah Rukh Khan-Preity Zinta film Veer-Zaara directed by Yash Chopra, is not a serious cross-border story but a romantic comedy. It is actually based on Faiza Iftikhar’s novel Hisaar-e-Mohabbat.

Aunn Zara stars Osman Ali Butt and Maya Ali in the lead. It is directed by Haissam Hussain. The story revolves around the romance of Aunn – a pampered male child – and Zara, the daughter of a strict father who wants her to join the air force.

Aunn Zara was aired on Pakistani television in 2013 and will be shown on Zee TV’s channel Zindagi.
