In the times where Pakistani Entertainment channels are broadcasting foreign dubbed dramas on screens, here’s an acheivement for Pakistan’s record breaking drama serial “Humsafar” which is going to be aired on Indian channel Rishtey TV. Hum TV yet again enters that prime position where it has sold rights to air their drama to foreign channels rather than buying rights to air foreign plays. Rishtey TV will air the first episode of Humsafar this weekend.

Besides Humsafar, there are other massive plays that claimed critical acclaim and popularity. However Humsafar stands way above the rest breaking all the previous records of popularity.
