Speaking about her experience playing the role of Umaina, Saba Qamar shared, “Umaina is fearless, strong and is not afraid to express herself. She is a true wild child. It was very exciting and challenging to play this role as well as it is very different from the roles I have played before. I think the time has come to give freedom to men and women to choose their own path and not be confined to playing by the rules. Mrs and Mr Shamim showcases it very well.”

Talking about the show and his character Shamim, Nauman Ejaz shared, “Shamim is not like the typical hero that you get to see in series and movies. He is a soft hearted, caring person. He redefines the portrayal of what an ideal man or man of the house should generally be like. Throughout the show, you will see that he practices respect, love and concern for his family and friends, but unfortunately, is ridiculed for being ‘holy’. I really enjoyed playing this character and I am looking forward to the release of the show.”
Ek Zindagi Original, Mrs & Mr Shamim is a typical love story of a pure bond that ranges from friendship to old age and everything in between.
