Storyline

Sultanabad-based Shehzadi Nadira refuses to marry Aminabad's Shehzada Nissar and is compelled to go on the run. Meanwhile in Aminabad, Emir Abdullah with the help of Sipersala Nadir Khan leads a revolt, kills his father as well as most of the royal family, but Nissar manages to escape. Nadira is captured and brought back but claims that she is now married to Sheikh Chilli and asks him to masquerade as her husband with a new name, Sultan-e-Chaman, to which he agrees as he had always fantasized about her. He assumes the throne and dispenses justice after conferring with a donkey named Nana. But their temporary haven will soon be interrupted when Nadir and his soldiers descend on them - changing their lives forever. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)
