Ever since it was announced that Humayun Saeed would be making a comeback on television, two years after giving a winning performance in Dillagi, fans had high expectations from his upcoming project. To add more to their excitement, it was announced that Nadeem Baig would be directing it and Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar would be penning the script. Both of them are considered excellent in their respective fields. And when Ayeza Khan was roped in to play the leading lady, the audience could not wait to watch the first episode. The drama, titled Meray Paas Tum Ho, went on air on ARY Digital this Saturday and needless to say, the response was exactly as one would expect it.
A new record
According to ARY Digital, the first episode of Meray Paas Tum Ho received the highest ratings ever for the first episode of any drama in Pakistan’s history. That is certainly an achievement for the whole team- that too just after the first episode. This should not come as a surprise considering Humayun Saeed is considered a superstar in Pakistan. His latest venture on the big screen Jawani Phir Nahi Aani 2 (JPNA2) went on to become the highest grossing Pakistani film ever.
Furthermore, his pairing with Ayeza Khan was bound to create magic on screen since she has been at the top of her game for quite some time now. Both the stars have created a strong fan base and we can only imagine what would happen as the story moves forward. The drama even managed to garner more than 3 million views on YouTube.
The story is rather simple for now. Humayun and Ayeza play an ordinary married couple Danish and Mehwish, belonging to the middle class. They have a son named Roomi. Since Danish works in a government organization, they can barely make ends meet. While Danish is happy with his life and is madly in love with Mehwish, she has other expectations from it, which unfortunately, Danish is not able to fulfill. The drama also consists of a great supporting cast including Adnan Siddiqui, Hira Mani, Mehar Bano and Mohammad Ahmed. It would be interesting to see whether Danish’s love for Mehwish will be enough to keep her happy.
Let’s hope that the drama keeps the viewers hooked till the end and we can’t wait to see how the story unfolds!
