As ‘Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam’ premiers today on ZEE5 Global we bring you the Exclusive Interview with the cast and director Meenu Gaur who has also co-written the series.
“The stories are full of mystery and suspense and plot twists,” revealed the director. “I was really inspired by the noir genre that revolves around a qatil haseena (femme fatale) but the narrative is always led by men. I wanted to change that, I wanted to put (the genre) on its head. And I wanted the voiceover to be that of a woman’s.”
The web series features 7 qatil haseenas presented by some of the most fierce women from our entertainment industry namely Sanam Saeed, Sarwat Gilani, Meher Bano, Faiza Gillani, Eman Suleman, Samiya Mumtaz, and Beo Raana Zafar. The trailer also gives away the male actors as we see glimpses of Sheheryar Munawar, Ahsan Khan, Osman Mukhtar, and Saleem Mairaj. These men may seem like they are superior to women and the trailer shows instances where they remind women how fragile they are and hence, incapable of being in power. They also objectify women and reiterate the belief that an aging woman is less desirable. It will be interesting to see how tables turn on these characters and how the women who once were head over heels for them run after their blood.
