For the first time, Netflix is set to make a groundbreaking entry into Pakistani-themed content with the much-anticipated original series, “Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo.” Based on Farhat Ishtiaq’s acclaimed 2013 Urdu novel of the same name, this production boasts an impressive ensemble featuring stars like Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan, Sanam Saeed, and Ahad Raza Mir in pivotal roles.

The narrative unfolds the gripping journey of Sikandar, an exceptionally talented law student at Harvard. His life takes an unexpected turn, leading him to build emotional barriers between himself and others. Set against the backdrop of Italy, Sikandar crosses paths with Liza, a gifted artist burdened by a turbulent past. Their serendipitous meeting intertwines their fates, weaving a profound tale of human connection.

The star-studded cast includes charismatic Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan reuniting after their record-breaking success in “The Legend of Maula Jatt,” Pakistan’s highest-grossing film. Sanam Saeed, known for her work in “Zindagi Gulzar Hai” and the upcoming series “Barzakh,” joins alongside Ahad Raza Mir, famed for his appearances in Netflix’s “Resident Evil” and the BBC’s “World on Fire” Season 2.
