Us Pakistanis love watching Dramas. This is for a fact. We spare the time around the hour where our favourite dramas will be on air. A good script and spectacular acting are all the reasons why.
Just like all the previous years, this year too, our screens had been blessed with some amazing drama serials. As the year is approaching towards its end, we have compiled a list of top five ongoing dramas this October so you can catchup to this if you aren’t already watching.
Betiyaan is a beautiful story revolving around a household of five daughters and their ever-so-sensitive father. Each daughter is going through a trial of her own but the confidence shown by the father in each daughter is what our society needs to take example of. Betiyaan air at 7pm on ARY Digital and is a perfect drama to accompany with your evening tea.
