Love in Malaysia…
GEC channel Lamhe will be launching yet another award-winning drama series – Sarhadein, which starts from 31 March, Monday to Friday at 8:30pm.
Sarhadein illustrates love that crosses boundaries. An Indian girl and a Pakistani boy fall in love whilst studying in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A case of mistaken identities gets them together but religion and restrictions loom over their love. Will their parents and society accept their relationship once they go back to India and Pakistan?
Not only a tale of boundless love – Sarhadein also narrates the similarities between the people living in two countries and explains how Indian and Pakistani households share the same family values, traditions and parental aspirations, despite living in two separate countries.
The series stars acclaimed artists, with Smita Bansal in the role of Chandni and Bollywood actor Aamir Bashir. The series has won numerous awards and has achieved worldwide success. It has been acquired by foreign language channels and enjoyed by audiences of many languages with its cross-cultural appeal.
Lamhe showcases the best pick of South-Asian entertainment with classic Dramas, path-setting Bollywood Classics, plus lifestyle, travel, cookery and more.
Archana Kanade, Business Head – Free-To-Air Channels “Lamhe brings the best moments of Indian television to UK homes. The channel has grown by almost 10% in the first two months of this year compared to the previous two months at weekdays and we aim to grow the channel share with further additions that appeal to a cross section of the Asian community. The show particularly targets the Pakistani audience which Lamhe already enjoys a strong following from. Sarhadein not only depicts a love story but gives viewers the chance to enjoy the picturesque backdrop of Malaysia and a perfect blend of love, emotions and cultural values.”
