Khalil-Ur-Rehman Qamar curses himself for casting Mahira Khan as ‘Shano’ in his drama serial Sadqay Tumharay. The writer had previously said that he made a mistake while casting Adnan Malik as the male lead as well.

In 2020, Adnan Malik who played Khalil ur Rehman Qamar in Hum TV’s Sadqay Tumharay opened up about playing him in the drama.

The superhit drama was penned by Qamar and directed by renowned director Mohammad Ehteshamuddin. The plot was based on Qamar’s real-life story. While Adnan played Khalil, Mahira Khan played Shanno, Khalil’s love-interest.


Set in the 1980s, Sadqay Tumhare follows the story of Shanno who is betrothed to her cousin Khalil the day she was born. While Shanno grows up in the village and is a simple girl, Khalil moves to the big city. He is treated as the ‘Prince of Punjab’ because of which he turns out to be an arrogant prick. The two know about their engagement since day one.

Initially, Khalil is hesitant about meeting Shanno and avoids her but he then sees her in his dream and decides to meet her. The two fall in love at first sight, but fate intervenes and Shanno’s parents break off the engagement as they want her to marry her paternal cousin Fayaz. A family friend of theirs advises them to elope but the two decide against it. However, later they decide to run away and get married. But just as they are about to get married Shanno’s mother pretends that she is committing suicide causing Shanno to abandon her plans. A family drama ensues, dark secrets are revealed and Shanno and Khalil end up not getting married to each other.

A Twitter user commented that by not marrying Khalil, Shanno dodged a bullet and the Cake actor agreed with her, in turn of recent events. Sadqay Tumharay was Malik’s debut project.

In a successive tweet Malik talked about the power of the ‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi‘ slogan.

Meanwhile the Raees diva also expressed her disbelief at Qamar’s comments. Seems like Qamar’s remarks are because of the female superstar’s difference of opinion on some of his antics.
