Sadqay Tumhare written by Khalil-Ur-Rehman Qamar and directed by Mohammed Ehteshamuddin is a love story set in the 1980s.

An intriguing story of love and fate, Mahira doesn’t fail to impress with her performance.
Talking about her comeback on Indian screens Mahira Khan shares, “Sadqay Tumhare is a heartfelt, simple love story. Shano, is one of my favorite characters. She was other worldly, romantic and just pure love. It is a nostalgic moment to see the show, which is so close to my heart, return to television where it all started. I am excited to have this opportunity to connect with the Indian audience once again through Zindagi.”
