KARACHI: 16th December marked the 50th anniversary of the fall of Dhaka and it seems as though the running theme in the media industry is historical dramas. With movies such as Khel Khel Mein and telefilms such as Hangor making way to our screens, there is one more historical drama that has garnered praised. Maya Ali and Wahaj Ali starrer Jo Bichar Gaye has just kicked off with episode 3 concluding earlier this week, but it has gotten quite a fan base. To be more specific, Wahaj Ali has caught the eye of many of his peers who have sung praises for his performance.

Khel Khel Mein: The perfect curtain-raiser for Lollywood

Wahaj Ali, as we have gathered up to episode 3 of the drama, plays the role of Roomi. The character is based on the real life freedom (for Bangladesh)/ guerilla fighter (for Pakistan) who is a member of Awaami League and is a strong advocate for the rights of the people of East Pakistan. He constantly butts heads with Sonia (Maya Ali) and his portrayal of Roomi is a treat to watch. And as it would turn out, we’re not the only people who think so. Since Jo Bichar Gaye aired episode 3, celebrities have been singing praises for Wahaj Ali for his performance.

Maya Ali who plays the headstrong Sonia took to social media to share a clip from the drama where she has a face off with Wahaj Ali as Roomi. She captioned the post, “Acting is all about action and reaction. Wajju @wahaj.official this wasn’t possible without your support and your brilliant performance.”
