The team behind Ehd-e-Wafa is also planning to screen the final episode in cinemas across Pakistan.
A few days before the first teaser’s release actors Osman Khalid Butt, Ahad Raza Mir, Ahmed Ali Akbar, and Wahaj Ali shared a picture on social media dressed as Special Service Group (SSG) cadets with a bold caption of ‘SSG’.
Drama is said to be a breeze of fresh air when Pakistani tv primetime seems occupied with stories of social issues and relationships. It is receiving an overwhelming response from fans as well as critics since the first teaser dropped down.
Ehd-e-Wafa was not just a love story
One of the earlier teasers that showed sizzling chemistry of Ahad Raza Mir and Aleezey Shah made viewers speculate it to be a love story. The audience was drooling over another good looking on-screen couple.
However, the drama serial is not just a tale about love. It is a story about high-spirited friends who help, support and enjoy each other’s company as they face different hardships in their life.
