Very special, Touching Love Story
30 September 2016 | by sureshsainiSee all my reviews

This TV serial is one of the best heart-touching and loving story that ever produced and telecast-ed on Zindgi Channel.

Most of viewers will surely get emotionally attached to this TV serial and will bring tears in their eyes...

This TV serial having limited episodes is surely totally different from present Indian serials which keeps running from many years without having any story.

Casts role is very natural, which adds beauty to it.The story is about emotional husband-wife relationship played by "Fawad Afzal" Khan as Ashar Hussain and "Mahira Khan as Khirad Ashar Hussain

The show's theme song "Woh Humsafar Tha" was composed by Waqar Ali and sung by Qurat-UL-Ain Balouch is heart throbbing. It was written by Naseer Turabi in 1971 after the fall of Dhaka.
