Qubool Hai - the new show on Zee TV

By Sumit Jha

Zee TV's upcoming offering, 'Qubool Hai', presents an inter-generational family saga set in the Muslim milieu. It explores the lives of three individuals (Zoya, Ayan and Asad played by Karan Singh Grover) who are starkly different from each other and yet the threads of destiny beautifully entwine their lives.

Zoya is a modern, vibrant, new-age girl who questions stereotypes. Ayan is a happy-go-lucky boy without a care in the world. And the angry young man, Asad's sole purpose in life is to become successful. It is not often that viewers get a slice of Urdu-speaking people's life on television. Qubool Hai is a mixture of drama and romance showcasing Muslim culture and values in a modern setting.

Talking about the aim of the show, producer Gul Khan says, "With Qubool Hai, I want to remove misconceptions regarding Islam in the minds of people. There are many myths like women don't have rights in Muslim families. They don't get proper education, etc. But I want to showcase, things like, that women in Islam have equal rights as men to get educated. It is a refreshing story that revolves around the life of a progressive Muslim girl and a modern Muslim family. The protagonist Zoya is an intelligent young girl who derives her strength from the Holy Quran. The show highlights empowerment of women in Muslim society."

The show introduces the vivacious Surbhi Jyoti as a lead protagonist, Zoya. Surbhi is not new to the entertainment industry despite Qubool Hai being her debut on Hindi television. A spunky Punjabi kudi from Jalandhar, she is a very popular face in Punjab. With a background in theatre, Surbhi has also played the lead roles in a super hit Punjabi movie, 'Raula Pai Gaya' and a serial, 'Kathdiyan Wange'.

Surbhi says, "I have to say that Zoya's character is a dream role for me. I couldn't have asked for a better launch pad. There are far too many similarities between Zoya and me. Both are talkative and come across as the 'girl next door' with no frills, tensions or complications yet deep within we are both serious, opinionated and have strong views on subjects that are close to our hearts. The biggest similarity between Zoya and me is truly amazing. We are both ardent cricket fans. I remember my entire family watching serials on TV while I would watch cricket in my room. I know more about cricket than most other guys."
