    • Comeback means when you are away for some time and decide to “come back“ after taking a break. That is what a comeback is.

      Definition from google
      Learn to pronounce
      a return by a well-known person, especially an entertainer or sports player, to the activity in which they have formerly been successful.
      “the heavyweight champion is set to make his comeback in England”

  • These people didn’t even leave TV screen.. then why calling them comeback? If you want to put come back in list then put Vaneeza Ahmed and Gen. Faraz ( Mr and Mrs Faraz from ehd e wafa) as comeback. Although Faraz sahab wasn’t a full time showbiz celebrity but still you can count coz it’s long long time after A.B.C (from ptv to hum tv).

    But yes Vaneeza was and she still is our star not just as a model (the ramp queen of all times) but also as an actor.

    Yes you can also count Talat Hussain Sahab who came back on screen after long time but for shorter period in tv drama Damsa on Ary Digital. He s also our legendary actor.

    This is called comeback not these Looney toons. So if you want to write something then write about them. Do research before publishing the article.

    • Vaneeza Ahmed! She speaks her dialogues like she is reading them. She is lucky she got such a nice break.As much as I like Faraz. His appearance is not a comeback, he is not back, he is making an appearance and will disappear again. He has limited scenes in ehd e wafa already. He is not even an actor. What makes you think this is his comeback drama. Use your head before commenting.
