The 90s telefilm featured actors Sania Saeed, Huma Nawab and Marina Khan as the three seemingly imperfect but  perfect women. Set in Karachi, the story explored the journey of three friends with clashing personalities as they try to navigate life with all its challenges. Farar was a hit in the 90s and the audience loved it.

The new web series with the same title, will explore a somewhat similar storyline but with new faces. Earlier, the three friends used to drive a red Volkswagen Camper and now we spotted a red open SUV.

The cast of new Farar includes Sarwat Gilani, Mariam Saleem and Maha Hasan as the leading ladies, accompanied by Tooba Siddiqui, Zahid Ahmed, Salma Hasan, Hina Bayat and Saleem Meraj amongst others. Mehreen tagged a lot of people on her post including a breed of new actors.

Maha Hasan and Mariam shared on Instagram that they have wrapped the shooting for the series.
