Pakistani dramas have always maintained a good following. Our directors, and actors make sure that they keep the audiences hooked to their screens from the first till the last episode of the show.
Unlike previous dramas, we have observed a major shift in the recent ones. Generally, Pakistani dramas start with men and end with them too. What we are trying to say here is that mostly the lead character was played by a male actor. But now you can the trend is shifting. With women proving themselves in various areas of life, our drama serials have also started to acknowledge their roles in our society. We now see our favorite actresses playing lead roles in popular shows and we can’t be happier.
Here we have put together a few dramas in which the lead role is played by female. Check out.
Baaghi on URDU 1
Baaghi is a biographical TV show on one of the most controversial personalities that ever happened to Pakistan, Qandeel Baloch. Qandeel was murdered by her own brother in the name of honor in 2016. The brilliant Saba Qamar plays the lead character of Fauzia aka Qandeel in the series.
Baaghi is one of the most hyped shows in Pakistan. People were talking about it even before it aired on television. It has received praise from critics and masses equally for its stellar performances. Baaghi is also one of the most watched dramas of Pakistan on Youtube.
Saba Qamar has definitely won the hearts of her fans with her portrayal of Qandeel Baloch.
2. Khaani on GEO TV
Drama serial Khaani on Geo TV has won the hearts of people all over the country. The Sana Javed – Feroze Khan starrer has become the talk of the town with its impeccable soundtrack, amazing characters, and brilliant performances.
Sana Javed, who has made a comeback on TV after two years, stars opposite Feroze Khan in Khaani, and people can’t get over the chemistry they share on screen.
Sana plays the role of Khaani, a simple girl who might look weak but her strong-mindedness won’t let her get down in front of injustice. On the other hand, Feroze Khan plays the role of Mir Hadi, who’s an egoist, with lots and lots of money. He’s totally spoiled but, somehow, he falls in love with Khaani who is his exact opposite!
Sana’s performance in the show is simply outstanding and we hope as the drama progresses, she manages to outshine her co-stars.
3. Mein Maa Nahin Banna Chahti on HUM TV
Mein Maa Nahi Banna Chahti is one of the most-forward shows of Pakistan, considering its interesting story and bold take on the issues of our societal norms.
The drama revolves around the life of a woman and the stigma attached to giving birth to females instead of males.
Although Alif Allah Insan star, Imran Ashraf is performing great in the serial, it’s Rubab Hashim’s performance that captivates the audiences.
If you have any other performances to add to this list then let us know.
