Mahira khan, who played the soft spoken and simple khirad is actually a very bubbly person. When a doll was given to her and she had to pretend it was her baby, her character was supposed to look serious and cry as well. However, she found the whole idea of a doll as a baby so funny that she laughed every time they shot the scene, leading to numerous takes of that one scene. See more »
Wo Humsafar Tha

I am a huge fan of Novel-based TV Shows in Pakistan as most of them have are well directed and have been successful in the past. As for Humsafar, I would say I'm not a huge fan of the story as there is nothing quite new in it... (sorry I know this Drama has a huge fan base even in countries other than Pakistan). For me the whole charm of this drama lies in the 'performance' of the lead actors. Ashar, Khirad and Farida are beautifully portrayed... and not to forget Naveen Waqar's negative character as Sara. Though in the novel she did not have a strong role, but in Drama Sara's performance has a huge impact. The soulful title track "Woh Humsafar Tha" also contributes a lot much to this drama's success.
Overall I would say it was a good treat to watch this show... and the performances make it "A MUST WATCH"! 4/5!
