The viewers liked the drama from its first teaser as it featured Zaidi in the leading role, however, now, the audience is amazed how the drama series has showcased a real-life incident in its second episode which aired last night.
Last night, with the scene where Bakhtawar gets a job as the bus hostess, the scene showed Parveen being killed by a man as she went off home after work.
