Here is our weekly update containing stories of the dramas that went on air the previous week. As usual, Sinf-e-Aahan, Sang-e-Mah, and Mere Humsafar remained on top. Jo Bichar Gaye continues to be underrated as the show has failed to capture audience eyeballs. In Bisaat, Jahanzaib decides to divorce Afreen as she refuses to be a part of his plan. Ibn-e-Hawwa is a new addition to the list where Zahid’s disgust for women is brewing something malicious. Ishq e Laa remained somewhat lackluster as Azlan still seeks ways to avenge his wife’s death.

I set my freelance writing journey on fire in Jan 2021. Throughout my endeavors, the niches I fancied writing about sum up to three. They’re: Fitness & Lifestyle, Showbiz & Entertainment, and last but never the least, Personal Finance. In my leisure time, I enjoy either hitting the gym or diving deep into the abyss of best-seller books.
