KARACHI: It’s been a while since Mahira Khan announced that she was going to make her debut as producer with Baarwan Khiladi. Since then, fans have been anxiously waiting for updates. To the excitement of many, the trailer for Baarwan Khiladi is finally here. Here is how we feel about it!

The sports centric web series written by Shahid Dogar and directed by Adnan Sarwar follows the story of a Pakistani cricket team as it struggles with unexpected changes when their star player drops out of the team. In the quest to prove that the team wasn’t dependent on one player, the coach sets out to find the next rising star. That is when we get our introduction to Daniyal Zafar – a street cricketer. Zafar’s character is a breath of fresh air; he’s confident yet humble and his excitement for being recognized for his cricketing skills is contagious.
