Veteran actor Humayun Saeed is set to write, produce, direct, edit, debut and star in Netflix’s first-ever Pakistani superhero show “Super Humayun.”
Sources close to both Saeed and Netflix are tight-lipped about the exciting venture but rumours are Saeed will not only play the heroic vigilante crime fighter Super Humayun, but will also have a double role as the show’s main villain, Humayun Dada.
Rumours are abuzz that Saeed will also do all his own stunts as well as choreographing the show’s two item numbers, also performed by Saeed.
The first season, set in Thatta, will depict Super Humayun’s fight to save the city from alien invaders led by his arch rival and estranged twin brother Humayun Dada. Rumours are abuzz that Saeed will also do all his own stunts as well as choreographing the show’s two item numbers, also performed by Saeed.
The small cast of the show, with most of the characters being played by Saeed himself—most notably the hero, his love interest, and the villain—is a testament to his broad skills and abilities, according to casting director Humayun Saeed.
With shooting currently being held on-location in Thatta, the series is set to debut on Eid-ul-Fitr 2020.
