Fans of Pakistani serial Humsafar are in for a treat, as their favourite stars Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan are set to reunite for Netflix’s first Pakistan-themed original. The two will feature in Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo.

The series, as per a Variety report, is an official adaptation of Farhat Ishtiaq’s Urdu–language novel of the same name. This is not the first time that Ishtiaq’s novel has been adapted for a show or a film. Humsafar was based on Ishtiaq’s work.

As per the Variety report, the storyline of Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo revolves around a Harvard law student named Sikandar, and Liza, who is an artist with a difficult past. Things take a drastic turn when Sikandar “experiences a life-changing incident” and then meets Liza in Italy.

The report added that the series will be shot extensively in Pakistan, Italy and the UK.

Fawad and Mahira were also seen in the superhit Pakistani film The Legend Of Maula Jatt. The Bilal Lashari film was released in October 2022. It was also the highest-grossing Pakistani film of all time, reported Variety.
