The series features some of Pakistan's powerhouses including Sajal Aly, Yumna Zaidi, Kubra Khan, Ramsha Khan, Syra Yousuf and Yehali Tashiya Kalidasa. The series revolves around these women and follows their individual journeys in the armed forces. It showcases the struggles, stereotypes and challenges they faced to come out with flying colours.  

The series will be released on the YouTube channel of ARY Digital. The makers have now dropped a new video giving a glimpse into the character Arzoo Daniel played by Syra Yousuf. The video opens with a scene in a church where Syra is seen praying and then joined by her boyfriend who taunts her about her aspirations to join the army. It then follows her arguing with her family and dealing with her boyfriend's ego.

Earlier, character videos of Sajal Aly, Yumna Zaidi and Kubra Khan were released. Sajal Aly plays the role of meek and naive Rabia Safeer. Many in the family and the armed force believe that she wouldn't be able to perform as an army officer. The video shows her fainting on the ground and getting emotional as she is tasked with some tough practices. She will be seen sharing the screen with Usman Mukhtar and Asim Azhar. Sharing his experience working on the project, Usman had earlier said in an interview that he is happy to be a part of it and support women in their journeys.

Kubra Khan plays the role of Mehjabeen Mastaan, a rich spoilt brat. Hailing from a rich family, she decides to join the army to get away from her parents who fight all day long. When she announces her plan, she gets scorned by her parents. She takes it up as a challenge and walks into the army campus only to struggle but she makes it. Watch a glimpse of her beautiful journey here:

Character video of actor Yumna Zaidi is also out. The actor of Pyaar Ke Sadqaay fame plays the role of Shaista Khanzada. Belonging to a conservative middle-class family, she fights all odds to join the army. She is seen leaving her house in a burqa and cut to, training with guns at the armed force campus.

Ramsha Khan plays the role of Pariwesh Jamal, a girl from a small village in Balochistan. Her character video opens with her holding a gun as her mother calls out to her saying she is doing a man's job. She responds innocently, "Agar auratein karengi, to aurat wali kaam bhi ban jayegi". She decides to join the army to help get her family's piece of the land back which has been mortgaged to some landlord.

The series will also feature Yehali Tashiya Kalidasa who takes on the role of Nathmy Perrera.

The makers had earlier released an intense and promising teaser of the much-anticipated drama, introducing each of its main characters. The drama led by women is produced by ISPR, Six Sigma Plus and Next Level Entertainment production will be airing on ARY Digital.
