Qissa Nagri announced the revival of the internet-breaking show, Midsummer Chaos. Fans are excited and surprised. With the lead cast on display, does this mean a new star is in the making?
It is no lie that when midsummer chaos aired on youtube everyone stopped what they were doing to watch the show on a weekly basis. Be it for the plot, memes, or for the fun of it, Qissa Nagri was getting what it wanted: views.
Season One revolved around teenagers and their affluent backgrounds. From friendships, heartbreaks, and a lot of Mustafa Babar’s character going into an existential crisis.
The show gained over a million views and though some may find it not in touch with reality, it showed us something that is a part of society but we turn a blind eye to it.
Starring Mustafa Babar, Mehar Bano, Saman Ansari, Kamila Aazeen, Nael Aamir, Zainab Ejaz, Khushhal Khan, Mamia Shajaffar, and Hiba Ajaz, Ahmed Sarym (the director) did a splendid job in keeping the netizens on their toes. The pivotal thing we got out of Midsummer Chaos? Khushhal Khan and his acting.
Being a youtube series starring influencers, the happening of a ‘big break’ does not really cross one’s mind but Sarym made it happen. He, in a way, created Khushhal Khan.
Now that Qissa Nagri has announced a second season of the desi version of Euphoria, it has all got us thinking; Does this mean a new actor in the making?
Khushhal Khan, a devilishly handsome man, got his feet into stardom because of a show every person on the internet was raving about. His acting skills were phenomenal and HumTV then cast him in his very own drama series called Wehshi.
From what it seems, the new cast will include Azariah Naseeb, Haider Abbas, Meher Hasan, Shameen Tariq, and Mustafa Taifoor. Only time will tell what Ahmed Sarym has in store for what his cast will be up to.
We are excited to see the cast in action and most importantly the future Qissa Nagri holds.
