It is often said that a woman shapes the destiny of civilization! Today women have taken great strides and can match a man step for step in any field and yet we still consider a girl child a responsibility and a burden. Changing these belied age old belief is Zindagi’s new show Main Bushra - the story of a young, educated and confident woman, Bushra Warsi, who wants to prove to her father that daughters are equally, if not more, capable than sons. The show stars the talented Mawra Hocane in the title role of Bushra and has an ensemble cast that includes Affan Waheed, Saba Hameed and Faisal Qureshi. ‘Main Bushra’ premieres on Zindagi today on 29th June, 2016 at 8:00 PM and will air every Monday to Saturday.
Main Bushra showcases the struggle of a girl, who despite all odds, is determined to shatter age old beliefs and live with honour and dignity. The daughter of a middle-class father Nasir (Waseem Abbas) that only wants a son, Bushra comes from a home that believes in the supremacy of sons over daughters. Bushra and her sisters are the unwitting victims of this mindset. Bushra constantly strives to overcome this mindset and to prove her worth to her family. Bushra believes in setting high goals and not stopping till you get there but it is her family that becomes the roadblock to her success. Despite the prejudices they have against her, Bushra goes out of the way to help the ones she loves, often sacrificing her own life and desires.
Will Bushra be appreciated for her efforts to support her family? Will she be able to prove to her father and her family that she is no less than a son?
Watch Bushra’s struggle to achieve her dreams in the world full of stereotypes in ‘Main Bushra’ from Monday to Saturday at 8:00 PM, only on Zindagi!
