The novel 'Umrao Jaan Ada', written by Mirza Hadi Ruswa in 1899, is considered a literary masterpiece in Urdu literature. It is renowned for its depiction of the culture and society of 19th century India, focusing specifically on the lives of courtesans.

The classic novel has been adapted for film multiple times, both in Pakistan and India. In Pakistan, Hasan Tariq directed the 1972 version, with Rani in the lead role. In India, Muzaffar Ali's 1981 film starred Rekha and J.P. Dutta's 2006 adaptation starred Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Additionally, the novel served as inspiration for two Indian films in 1958, "Mehndi" directed by S.M. Yusuf and "Zindagi Ya Toofan" directed by Nakhshab Jarchavi.

On the work front, Sajal Aly was last seen in Aangan, Alif, Yeh Dil Mera, Ishq E Laa, and Sinf-e-Aahan.
