KARACHI: Over the past few years, if there is one thing that
Pakistanis have proven, it is that we aren’t one to miss out on an opportunity to put our name on the global map. From
Cannes Film Festival to the
London Fashion Week, perhaps the only thing that was missing on our checklist was a Pakistan Netflix original series. However, it didn’t take long to add just that to our list of accomplishments.
To make the news of the upcoming series even more exciting is the fact that it has a star studded cast with the likes of Fawad Khan,
Mahira Khan, Ahad Raza Mir,
Sanam Saeed, Maya Ali and Hamza Ali Abbasi, to name a few! Here is all that you need to know about the Pakistan based Netflix original series titled Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo.
Based on Farhat Ishtiaq’s novel of the same name, the series is a Momina Duraid Films production. The premise of Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo follows Sikandar, a Harvard law student, who experiences a life-changing incident that makes him keep others at bay and Liza, a talented artist with a troubled past.

However, as exciting as the news of the show is, it comes with a caveat. A release date has not been announced for the series and no other details have been revealed. But if there is one thing we’re sure of, the wait will be worth it!
