Drama Review | Chauraha | Cast & Characters


Chauraha: Introduction

Hailing from a middle-class family, Zoya is a young and naive girl who after the death of her father lives with her mother and aunt. Zoya’s mother, Shireen longs for her daughter to complete her studies and become independent. On the contrary, Zoya’s young and immature mind begins to be polluted under peer pressure and social media. Embarrassed about her lifestyle, Zoya tries to create a fake online persona that marks the beginning of countless troubles that await in her life.

Through social media, Zoya comes across Junaid who hails from a respectable family however little does anyone is aware of his dark side. Zoya’s naive and inane nature becomes an easy target for Junaid as he eventually succeeds in trapping her with his web of lies and deceit. Despite all the mishaps and troubles that Zoya encounters, will she be able to realize the gravity of the situation? Will Junaid ever pay the price of his wrongdoings?

Cast & Characters

Mikaal Zulfiqar as Junaid

The antagonist, at least that’s what I make of him from the teasers. I will keep this opinion until we know that he is the hero.

Madiha Imam as Zoya

The silly heroine who lies to her friends about everything. 

Saba Hameed as Shireen

Zoya’s mother, a khuddar widow who didn’t accept help from a colleague until her last hope died down.

Bushra Ansari as Naseem Phupho

Zoya’s phupho. Her white saree reminded me of Sitara Jahan from Deewar-e-Shab

Sitara Jahan


Naseem Phupho

Asad Siddiqui as Arsal

Zoya’s neighbour

Behroze Sabzwari as Saleem

Junaid’s father, Shireen’s manager of sorts. Kind-hearted man.

Shabbir Jan as Qadeer


Ayesha Gul as Seema


Arisha Razi Khan as Naila

Junaid’s sister





I will add more characters as I watch the episodes. I’m not too sure about this, because I haven’t had a good experience of Har Pal Geo dramas (except Alif), but Aehsun Talish is directing, the man who gave us Suno Chanda & Suno Chanda 2 and Mushk, so… Why not?

I will give this a 3-episode test.


Until we meet again, check out my books on Amazon. You can subscribe for Kindle Unlimited for free for the first month, just saying 🙂

  1. Really? AMEK was his? gosh, i doubt his credibility now 😀

    re: Fraud 2.0, yeah, i have a feeling that Mikal picked the badboy role in this one instead of Ahsan, haha

  2. Liza Joel says:

    Aesun Talish also gave AMEK which was a horrible badly executed drama. But Chauraha is like Fraud 2.0 lol. Also Mikaal Zulfiqar is rlly hot so I’ll give this a go.
