It’s worth mentioning that Saeed, renowned for his remarkable performance in the drama Meray Paas Tum Ho, has primarily focused on films in recent times.
However, his absence from television dramas has left his fans eagerly awaiting his return to the small screen. With his collaboration with the esteemed writer in Main Manto Nahi Hoon, Saeed’s admirers are excitedly anticipating his comeback to the realm of TV dramas.
Despite facing some delays, the news of Saeed’s involvement has created a significant buzz among the audience. As fans eagerly await further updates, the anticipation for Main Manto Nahi Hoon continues to grow. The potential inclusion of Aly in the project further intensifies the overall excitement.
On the small screen, Saeed was last seen as Doctor Hasnat in Netflix’s royal drama, The Crown. In a previous interview, Saeed expressed his thrill at being offered the role, as he was a fan of the show and had watched the previous seasons. “The project was enormous. I was extremely happy to have the opportunity to work on it,” said the star of London Nahi Jaunga.
The Punjab Nahi Jaungi star further mentioned, “I personally loved The Crown too, I watched the first four seasons. When I was offered the role, I couldn’t believe that I would portray myself in the fifth season. It was a significant achievement for me.” He also shared his thoughts on portraying a real-life character for the first time, stating that while he hadn’t played such a role before, the roles he typically portrays are also somewhat inspired by real-life individuals or situations.
