10 Pakistani dramas from 2015 that everyone should watch

2015 was a year filled with lots of emotions, drama and masala for the Pakistani drama industry. We have a set of directors, actors and producers who have always made much applauded dramas, while on the other hand, we have a pool of artists who are always set to bring out taboo topics and make an impact.

Will ‘Mera Naam Yusuf Hai’ be better than ‘Pyare Afzal’?

Mera Naam Yusuf Hai (MNYH) is the latest offering from the famous pen of Khalilur Rehman Qamar and A Plus – a channel which is fast making a name for itself against the top three rival drama channels Geo, ARY and Hum TV.

Why Fawad Khan is so ‘Khoobsurat’!

Jutt and Bond was where most of us first saw Fawad Afzal Khan. He was a skinny, lanky, clean shaven guy with bangs. Soon after, we were surprised to see him as the lead singer of Entity Paradigm (EP), a Pakistani nu metal band, with his husky, soulful voice and that pained musician look.
