Not another Humsafar episode
You know you need a parody on Humsafar when everyone and their mother’s great grandkhala is talking about it. So here it is!
The video begins with a tongue-in-cheek comparison of sorts between the Twilight saga and Humsafar. It then moves on to a sketch piece featuring Karachi-based model and actress Rubya Chaudhry, and local theatre actors Mustafa Ali Khan, Sundus Jamil (also a model and local television actress) Haris Shahbaz and myself.
The sketch is a comedic ‘recap’ of the initial 11-12 episodes of the drama serial, highlighting the key moments in a not-so-dramatic interpretation. The video also features a parody of Ke$ha’s wildly popular ‘Tik Tok‘ – written, sung and edited by me – interspersed into the plot of Humsafar as the theme song of the character ‘Sara’. I plan to release the track on soundcloud (for download) soon, as I did with Rihanna’s ‘Rude Boy‘ parody from my previous v-log.
