Mere Paas Tum Ho is undoubtedly the biggest blockbuster of the past few years when it comes to television serials. The craze for this Nadeem Baig directorial has hit the roof with every episode garnering more viewership than the previous one, both on television as well as digital platforms. Now the MPTH team has decided to add another feather in its cap. Hear this: The finale episode of the Humayun Saeed starrer will be screened in cinemas across the nation.
The finale episode is set to be a real treat for fans of the show as it will be a double episode as revealed by the makers. The episode will bring the star-studded cast boasting of big names such as Humayun Saeed, Ayeza Khan, Adnan Siddiqui, Hira Mani, and Savera Nadeem to the big-screen for viewers to enjoy the show in true cinematic glory. The dialogues and situations that have been penned by renowned writer Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar are said to be truly worthy of the silver screen experience.
The screenings will be held across the country next week on Saturday (25th January). While unusual, this is not the first time that a Pakistani drama will be screened in theaters. In 2012 the Turkish Drama, Ishq-e-Memnun which broke the rating record and became a household favorite was the first play to get its finale episode a theatrical screening, although that was limited to one theatre in Lahore.
In 2014, another drama penned by Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar, Pyaray Afzal starring Hamza Ali Abbasi, Ayeza Khan, Sohai Ali Abro and Sana Javed had its last episode run across theaters in the major cities, such as Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Faisalabad.
However, MPTH is going to be screened on an even larger scale and more screens. ARY Digital has decided to screen the finale in all the major cinemas in Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad from 8 pm-10 pm. The cast of MPTH will also attend a special screening of the show at Nueplex cinemas in Karachi, with notable members of the showbiz fraternity said to be in attendance.
This is surely great news for the fans of the hit show and cinema lovers as well who will get to see a gripping finale episode of the most talked-about drama in the country on the big screen. With still over a week to go, we are sure the wait will be worth the while.
