1. Ishq Jalebi:
Wahaj Ali and Madiha Imam starrer Ishq Jalebi is a perfect family drama with a romantic twist. A comedy of sorts, Ishq Jalebi is about family bonds tarnished by dreams of living in foreign lands, ensuing realisations that spiral into family reunions, and a budding love between Bela (Madiha Imam) and Basim(Wahaj Ali). Grab a tissue paper box because it is a perfect show with a rollercoaster of emotions. The execution, the direction, the storyline, and the acting especially by Mohammad Boota (played by Qavi Khan) are just so on point. Definitely, one to watch during the winter break.
The drama is written by ace writer Saima Akram Chaudary and directed by Syed Wajahat Hussain.
