Noore Zindagi (نور زندگی)
Written By Sarwat Nazeer, Noore Zindagi stars Syed Jibran and Ayesha Khan in the leading roles. As evident from promos Syed Jabran is a strict and stubborn elder brother who will get married to the sober, obedient (means satti sawatri and patti-warta) Ayesha Khan in the drama. Ayesha Khan role seems to be like an angelic wife and bahu.
Dhaani is the story of a tom boy middle class girl Dhaani played by Madiha Imam. Sami Khan who has dedicated his life to a “great cause” that is to work only in the A&B Productions and Geo Tv is playing the role of the hero here yet again.

Izne Rukhsat is based on the life of some mature characters played by Faiza Hassan, Sabreen Hisbani and Faisal Rehman. The younger generation roles are played by Shehzad sheikh and Sonia Mishaal.
