Saji Gulâs name is counted among the best screenwriters of modern times. Be it GEO, ARY, HUM or PTV, Gul has written for almost all respectable channels, with his stories revolving around child psychology, spiritualism, physical abnormalities, paranormal happenings, and sexism. One of his most popular serials has been âO Rangrezaâ starring Sajal Aly and Bilal Abbas Khan, which dealt with the themes of in-house misogyny and showbiz fameâs transience. Apart from this, Saji Gul is also known for having written âIltejaâ based on downâs syndrome, âSannataâ based on mysterious happenings stretching themselves across generations, âPyari Bittoâ based on Alzheimerâs and the currently running âDourâ that tackles house-hold issues in a non-clichÃ©d manner
Saji Gulâs logical narratives founded on cause-and-effect theories have earned him a lot of respect, thereby rendering him a writer whose name doesnât remain hidden for long from the television screens. This week, Saji Gul announced another serial. The writer disclosed the news on his Facebook account with a status that went like:
âAnother serial script on floor!
The hashtags mentioned MD, thus revealing that the serial is going to be for HUM TV and will be produced under the banner of Momina Duraid Productions. Earlier, it was âO Rangrezaâ written by Saji Gul for the channel, which topped the charts during the days it was on air. The writer hasnât announced the title of the next serial yet, but the fact that it is being written for HUM TV is enough to promise a high-budgeted production carrying an ensemble cast.
Currently, Gulâs âDourâ is running on GEO TV and has managed to garner a lot of ratings. Despite being a commercial serial, the likes of which Gul hesitates from penning, the writer has managed to keep his creativity intact in the serialâs script by including characters whose psyches need to be understood for a better understanding of their actions. The depth, a quality of Saji Gulâs scripts, is there.
The viewers are looking forward to the writerâs upcoming serial. Following the success of âO Rangrezaâ, Gulâs next project will hopefully be nothing less than a time-less, spell-binding story.
