Usually, women are portrayed in weak roles in Pakistani dramas and films, however, the first original web series of Pakistan, which will be released soon, will feature women in slightly unique roles. Director Asim Abbasi's web series 'Churails' is actually the story of four married women who become spies after their husbands' infidelity.
In Pakistan's first original web series, the four women who became spies after their husbands' infidelity work to save the lives of other women like them and expose their husbands who cheated on their wives. Although "witches" is the story of women who become spies to expose their husbands who are unfaithful to their wives, when they become spies, they see many ugly faces of society.
Women who become spies then face horrific realities such as child marriage, child abuse, forced marriages, poverty, crime, race and suicide. Talking to Dawn Images about Churails, actress Sarwat Gilani said that the show is actually the voice of women. She added, quoting the thriller show, that she would be seen playing the role of a lawyer following a married criminal case.
