The world’s largest streaming platform for South Asian content, ZEE5 Global and Zindagi are set to stream a desi noir anthology ‘Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam’. Helmed by critically acclaimed British Indian director Meenu Gaur, the series features a stellar cast comprising of actors like Ahsan Khan, Osman Khalid Butt, Sheheryar Munawar, Saleem Mairaj, Samiya Mumtaz, Sanam Saeed, Sarwat Gilani, Mehar Bano, Faiza Gillani, Beo Raana Zafar and Eman Suleman.

Written by Farjad Nabi, and Gaur, the series is set in the timeless lanes of a mythical neighbourhood called ‘Androon Sheher’. It features stories of love, lust, power, and redemption. Each story highlights women in a fearless light.

Nabi says, “‘Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam’ waves goodbye to the victim woman as seven fatales get their way through methods that are unexpected, sometimes horrifying, but always liberating. I am glad this show will be premiering on the Zee5 platform that focuses on bringing diverse and significant stories for the global audience.”

Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, Archana Anand said, “After the success of the genre-bending Originals Churails and Dhoop Ki Deewar with Zindagi, we’re thrilled to bring a brilliant anthology under 'Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam'. As the foremost platform for South Asian content, we cherrypick stories from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh that will not only entertain audiences but also engage them at a deeper level. 'Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam' is one of those stories that’s not just about breaking stereotypes, but also creating new and powerful women characters who will be celebrated for their personalities.”
