Over the years, she has been perfect in all kinds of roles from those she played in fifty fifty to Neeli Dhoop and to the recently popular Bilquis Kaur.

In Bilquis Kaur, with the role of Billo, Bushra Ansari is shown as a strict, humourless woman who is living in New York since 30 years with her family.

Trouble came when her younger son Sultan (Ahsan Khan) married the bold and confident Soha (Syra Yousuf).

Mahira Khan (Falak) performed her role as a selfish young girl who was head over heals for Salman Anser (Mikeal) and later as a helpless, dejected woman looking for the help of Allah and guidance in her life.

Umera Ahmed’ writing gave the audience another master piece which made many people to think about the importance of morality and humility in their lives.

Mera Yaqeen

14827-merayaqeen-1353411407-914-640x480

The drama serial Mera Yaqeen leaves a powerful message: if you believe in God things can turn in your favour, you just need to consistent with a strong faith.

Asfand (Faisal Qureshi) and Maha (Savera Nadeem) is a happily married couple whose lives take a turn for the worse when Maha met with an accident and was left paralysed. She then forced her husband to get remarried to her friend Nazish (Nimra Bucha) who had been divorced twice already.

Nazish kept the house and children together but the problems started when Maha’s jealousy took over. Actors got viewer’s attention with their excellent performance.

The year came to an end with some great performances and outstanding screen plays, but we still have more to look forward to in the form of Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Kahi un kahi and the upcoming play Mirat-ul-Uroos.

These dramas also depict the societal picture and its impact on people. These serials show the real picture of class difference in present society. Pakistan has been successful providing the quality of Pakistani dramas. Hopefully Pakistani showbiz industry will get more progress in 2013.
