There are some on-screen couples that transcend any time bounds and make a place for themselves in the audience’s hearts. They do this through their acting prowess and the unique charm and magic they create on-screen with their partner, that continues to resonate with audiences.
Here is a list of 5 iconic on-screen pairs we yearn to see together on-screen once again.
Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan
Over a decade has flown by, yet the spellbinding on-screen charisma of Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan continues to linger in our memories. Who could forget the enchanting portrayal of Khirad and Asher, weaving a tale of love that etched itself into our hearts? The on-screen pair once again left the audience in awe after their appearance in the mega-hit film The Legend of Maula Jatt.
Adding to the excitement, swirling rumours hint at another on-screen pairing of Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan. The buzz suggests their return in the highly anticipated Pakistani Netflix web series, Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo, an adaptation of Farhat Ishtiaq’s bestselling novel. We can only hope that these rumours turn out to be true and we get to see the ‘IT’ couple of Pakistan entertainment industry.
Hamza Ali Abbasi and Maya Ali
What would the Mann Mayal fans not give up seeing Hamza Ali Abbasi and Maya Ali once again bring their magic on-screen? The Mann Mayal couple, Manahil and Salahuddin, curated a magical love story, which we rooted for and continued to adore even after years of the drama’s release.
Since the release of the drama in 2016, both actors went on to do different projects. We last saw Maya Ali in the drama serial Yunhi and Hamza Ali Abbasi in the film Legend of Maula Jatt. All we can hope is that both the stars sign a project in the near future and bring back the unforgettable chemistry.
Farhan Saeed and Hania Aamir
One must be living inside a rock not to have come across all the buzz surrounding the drama Mere Humsafar and all the praises Hania Aamir and Farhan Saeed garnered for their acting and on-screen pairing in the project. Watched by millions of people in Pakistan and globally, Mere Humsafar curated for itself a loyal fanbase that gushed over Hamza-Hala chemistry in the drama. We can only hope both actors can bring their suave and palpable on-screen presence to give us another memorable project.
Imran Ashraf and Iqra Aziz
Ranjha Ranjha Kardi is one of those dramas that have been praised by both critics and the audience alike. One of the reasons for the drama’s success was the honesty with which Imran Ashraf and Iqra Aziz played their roles of Bhola and Noori, respectively. Despite the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the two, Bhola and Noori made a place in the audience’s hearts like no other.
As their die-hard fans, we hope to see Imran Ashraf and Iqra Aziz taking on a project together and seeing them in an entirely new avatar.
Bilal Abbas and Yumna Zaidi
Probably one of the most celebrated actors of our generation, Bilal Abbas and Yumna Zaidi left us impressed with the unconventional characters they played in Pyar Ke Sadqay and seeing the coming-of-age love story unfold between the characters as they navigated through their personal battles and challenges, was certainly a treat to watch.
Seeing the two brilliant actors in a project together, where they once again leave us mesmerized with their commendable acting skills and on-screen presence, would be a delight.
