For the initiated, Dia Mirza plays the role of a Pakistani woman named Kainaaz Akhtar in the web-series. She is wrongly imprisoned in India and separated from her family. How a journalist-turned-lawyer helps her prove her innocence and reach her family across the border forms the crux of the story. 

Kaafir is directed by Sonam Nair and produced by Siddharth Malhotra and Sapna Malhotra for popular OTT platform ZEE5.
