Sajal Aly and Hamza Ali Abbasi’s much-awaited drama Alif finally hit TV screens last Saturday and its first episode was received phenomenally with millions of hits on Youtube.
While Alif aires on Geo, at the same time, same day, (Saturday, 8 pm) another star-studded drama Meray Paas Tum Ho aires on ARY Digital. What is interesting to note is that the producers of both the dramas are the same. Humayun Saeed’s production house Six Sigma Productions is behind MPTH while, Humayun’s wife Samina and her partner Sana Shahnawaz are producing Alif.
Naturally, this raises questions on what Humayun feels about the whole situation and Humayun, in an Instagram post, addressed the elephant in the room. From praising the actors to the director to the producers – Humayun said that he was “blown over after watching the first episode.”
He added that after watching the episode, “it seems that our industry is headed in the right direction and I really hope it will go on to change the landscape of TV production in our country.”
