Story of Drama Serial Ishqiya
As PEMRA has now banned Ishqiya from repeat telecast, it is essential to look into the content of this drama.
Hamna (Ramsha Khan) and Rumaisa (Hania Aamir) are sisters raised by overprotective parents. Hamna is quiet, peaceful and reserved while Rumi is carefree, outgoing and talkative, but both love their father dearly.
Hamna and her college classmate, Hamza (Feroze Khan) are madly in love. However, she is hesitant to tell her father that she is in love as he doesn’t believe in love marriages. Due to her father’s sickness, Hamna agrees to marry her father’s friend’s son Azeem (Gohar Rasheed).
Following this incident, Hamza vows to take revenge from Hamna. Hence, he reaches Hamna’s house with his parents to ask for Rumi’s hand for marriage as an act of revenge.
Story of Drama Serial Pyar Ke Sadqay
Pyar Ke Sadqay is the story of Abdullah (Bilal Abbas) and Mahjabeen (Yumna Zaidi) who are social misfits. Mahjabeen is an immature, quirky, clumsy, carefree, overtalkative, and mischievous young woman who has failed the tenth-grade multiple times. She is very innocent and fails to pick up on specific social cues. Presumably, she has a lower-middle-class family background.
Abdullah is a shy, nerdy, soft-spoken, and socially awkward/out-of-place university student who is gifted in mathematics. He comes from an affluent upbringing and has been verbally abused by his stepfather, Sarwar (Omair Rana).
Abdullah’s father Omair Rana is the one who intends to victimize Mahjaeen of harassment and shows will to marry her. He is playing fowl with his wife Mansoora (Atiqa Odho). The story is comprised of twists and turns throughout.
The outcome for drama serial Jalan is still under process. PEMRA is on alert to manage the content quality as per the complaints launched until now.
