Budding young actors Rabya Kulsoom and Zain Afzal have been paired for Lemon Max’s new web series ‘Lockdown Ke Side Effects’ – a strikingly relatable and light-hearted take on the current lockdown and social distancing situation.
‘Lockdown Ke Side Effects’ follows the story of the modern-day household bounded by the current situation, with Rabya Kulsoom and Zain Afzal starring as the couple balancing work and personal life. Directed by the Bachaana director Nasir Khan, the fun and jovial everyday happenings have been portrayed with a tongue in cheek script, also reinforcing and aiming to normalize the men helping out in household chores and dividing responsibilities.
Talking about the new web series, the COO of Colgate-Palmolive, Aziz Jindani said, “We believe that building connections and doing it with some laughter can help us survive the crisis and thrive as well. We want to make sure that while the days might get tougher and one might lose hope, we can remind the people that all of us are in this together, and we can always find something to laugh about in any situation – because that is what keeps us going.”
