  • “mentally disturbed”.. I don’t find it an apt statement. Abdul Qadir was not mentally disturbed but in his first phase, he was mummy daddy type, introvert bacha, lacking confidence. Later he moved out of country and became highly social, extrovert and got involved into bad habits. Later in his final phase, he was shown transformed, supporting religious practices.

    This might be only drama of Fahad where I found his acting top-notch in real terms, albeit he has proved his mentle in films too.

  • Shehr-e-zaat is one drama I never get tired of watching…and yet I likewise never fail to get seriously angry at the ending. MAQH is also superb. Another drama that didn’t get a mention here is ‘Paarsa’…it was Ayesha Khan’s finest performance to date.
