However, that’s not the only interesting thing about the telefilm. Eik Hai Nigar will see Bilal Ashraf opposite Mahira, the two came together for Mohammad Ehteshamuddin’s film Superstar and shared amazing onscreen chemistry. We feel this is going to mark Bilal Ashraf’s small screen debut that we have been hearing of lately. Over the past few days, there has been speculation that heartthrob Bilal Ashraf will be making his small screen debut opposite Sana Javed. The rumors began when the two actors shared pictures on social media with a vague caption “On the sets of …. Coming soon!”
