Humsafar is a 2011-2012 Pakistani drama telenovela based on the novel of the same name by Farhat Ishtiaq. You can read the book review here: Humsafar by Farhat Ishtiaque. Now, if you know me, you know how much I admite Farhat Ishtiaq’s romances. Farhat has also written the screenplay of Humsafar. Directed by Sarmad Sultan Khoosat, this is one of the mega-popular dramas of .Pakistani televisiongarnering widespread acclaim and international recognition. Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan got their Bollywood debut thanks to Humsafar. Long story short, this drama has sort reached a “Golden” stage.
