On the other hand, his lover and cousin, Hira Maani has completed her law degree and joins a new firm as a fresh lawyer in the market.
Moreover, she has to work to support her family but denies Zain’s proposal because she wants him to be more responsible and look for a job instead of investing all his time in his passion.

Parizaad, a role lead by Ahmed Ali Akbar portrays an underprivileged boy from a small village who is mocked because of his dark complexion. More importantly, he is mocked by everyone because his name means ‘From the land of Fairies’. Nonetheless, he is great at studies, tutors local villagers and helps his friends attain better marks too. But is this it? His romance struggles are real and his overtures are always met with rejection because of his unpleasing appearance.

A love story with typical family struggles is a hit series all the fans can’t stop talking about. Danish Taimoor and Minaal Khan act alongside as lovers who cannot be united because of their family’s disagreement. Most importantly, Minaal Khan’s family doesn’t believe in love marriages and forces her to tie the knot with someone her family chooses.
While it sounds stupid to read, the truth is that many Pakistani girls go through the same dilemma to not bring shame on the family. I feel one should choose their life partner themselves. What do you think?
