Agha Ali, an emerging actor in the drama industry is now all known for his absolutely great acting in some hit dramas like Teri Nazar, Main Haari Piya and Halki Si Khalish, will be seen in a lead role coming up with a new shade of his acting skills on ARY Digital. It is quite long to have seen Abid Ali on screen, so for his fans, it’s a wonderful news to have him back again on TV.

  • NZ, you rightly mentioned this novel has already been dramatized under the name of ‘Tawaan’ on PTV it was telecasted in 2000, main cast was Habib, Sabiha Khanum, Asad Malik, Maria Wasti, Ajab Gull It was dramatized by Doctor Anwar Sajjad (famous writer of PTV dramas, he is also husband of actress zeb sajjad (mother of humaima in film bol)). While the heroine was the actress who played role of Ratan Bayee in drama Jinnah Se Quaid.(cant remember her name). Overall it was an average drama. The drama was telecasted on Wednesday late night at 10 pm after khabarnama.

    Interesting thing about is that when first episode went onair, nothing was mentioned that it is based upon novel sheheryaran by Riffat Siraj. Khawateen Digest who had actual rights for the novel protested in press that this novel is dramatized without their consent and without paying a single penny to them. In response to their protest from next episode it was credits to Riffat Siraj were clearly added in starting and ending notes of Tawaan but they never paid Riffat siraj or khawateen digest any amount. While Dr. Anwar Sajjad said he was never informed by producer that they don’t have taken permissions from riffat siraj for the story.

    This new drama seems a better quality product then Tawaan.
