KARACHI: Singer and songwriter Hadiqa Kiani is all set to make her acting debut with the upcoming serial named ‘Raqeeb Se’.
Speaking about her character in the play, the singer shared that at the first glance, viewers will see Sakina contrary to Hadiqa Kiani who is supposed to be a strong, vibrant, fearless, bold woman. “But deep down, I feel there’s a Sakina inside me, embedded in my soul. I felt her from the very first lines I spoke in the play, and till the end, Sakina very much lives in me,” she said.
Hadiqa Kiani about working in the drama said that there is a great amount of chemistry. “When we were on the sets chatting about our lives, experiences, whatever we go through, it was just so bonded and well-knitted,” she said.
She also went on to describe how it was something very unlike what she had done previously. “In the music industry, we make music, interact with each other on a different level, go on stage, on the spotlight, see the audience, roar and come back. But this was teamwork. Living in one house, day and night. It was completely unique. We were like one family,” she added.
“It was like a challenge that came in my life and I honestly like to challenge myself. I thought this is the time, it’s a difficult art form and I need to explore myself,” she maintained. Moreover, the OST of Raqeeb Se has also been composed by Hadiqa herself, and written by her mother Khawar Kiani, and produced by Ustad Baqir Abbas.
