Dua decides to marry him, but the mother refuses. She sells the house, takes the amount of her share, and shifts to Abbottabad with an adopted daughter.
Shahriyar joins his father and plays an instrument while continuing studies. His cousin Masooma loves him, but he is ignoring her. One day, she expresses her feelings to Shahriye, but he scolds her by saying, “Tumhare Maa Baap Ne Tumhe Yahan Parhne Bheja Hai, Ishq Aashiqui Ke Chakron Main Prne Nhi Bheja. The very next morning, she leaves for her home. But, he has no regrets.
Shariq joins a magazine, but he is not satisfied with the job and wants to join a news channel. One of his friends gave him an idea to make a YouTube channel. When they were making their first video, they faced some Mafia persons. Somehow, both managed to escape from their prison. Then Shariq goes to a TV channel and gives video to the channel. But that man has already partnered with those rascals. He pretends to be a good person and offers him a job. Shariq accepted it without any hesitation.

Pictures Leaked from the Set of the Last Episode of Ehd-e-Wafa
Recently, social media broke with the pictures from the set of the last episode of Ehd-e-Wafa. The person who leaked the pictures said that Saad will die in the last episode. In the viral pictures, we can see Ahad Raza Mir (Saad), and Alizeh Shah (Dua) getting married. Saad’s friends Shahriyar, Shariq, and Gulzar Hussain can also be seen in the picture standing behind the Sofa. Other pictures showing the hospital. We can also see the upset Malik Shahzain sitting on a chair with Shahriyar, waiting for some doctors from ICU. Another picture shows Major General Daraz Inaam, visiting the hospital in uniform. Whoever leaked the pictures, did not do well. He completely ruined the hard work of the team behind the project and also spoiled the surprise of the last episode to the audience.
Writer’s Lack of Research while Penned 20th Episode of Ehd-e-Wafa
I am not happy to say that, like many other dramas, the writer of Ehd-e-Wafa lacks proper research and knowledge. We can ignore minor mistakes, but the writer made a big blunder in episode 20 of the drama. Before saying anything, I would like to mention Shahriyar’s dialogue on arriving at his father after a successful interview.
Father: Han Bai Sherry, Wo Interview Dy Aaya Hai, Nokri Hogae Hai?
Father: Acha, Oey Chal Koe Baat Nai. Hojaye Gi. Is hotel Main Na Shi, Kisi Aur Hotel Main Sahi. Tou Aisa Kr Na, Tou Doosry Hotel Main Appeal Da Di, Mera Matlab Hai Darkhawast Da Di. Yahan Na Shi, Khin Aur Sahi
Shahriyar: Abu Jee! Aap Se ek Baat Kahon, Gussa To Nahi Krain Gy?
Father: Oey Laal Khan Gusse Wale Din Paida Hi Nehi Hoa h. Haste Hoey Aaya Tha Aur Haste Hoey Hi Chla Jaye Ga. Bol Kya Baat Hai
Shahriyar: Main Hotel Ke Manager Ke Interview Ke Liye Nahi Gaya Tha.
Father: Oye Phir Tou Kahan Gaya Tha
Shahriyar: Main Ne CSS ka Imtehaan Diye Tha Do Maheene Phle, Oska Result Aaya Hai, Main Pakistan Main Satween Position Pe Aya Hoon. Osi Ke Interview Ke Liye Gaya Tha, Select Hogya.”
At the end of the conversation, Shahriyar tells his father “Main Assistant Commissioner Ban Gaya.”
According to the writer, a civil servant is selected in 2 months only. I do not know who told this to Mustafa Afridi. He must confirm it before adding in the script. I won’t go in the details, but roughly, the whole selection process takes one and a half years. I agree that it is just a drama media has a powerful impact on people. It is a source of knowledge for them. It is a writer’s responsibility to convey the right information to the audience.
Famous Sahir Ali Bagga is the composer of the Ehd-e-Wafa song. He also has sung it other co-singers are Ali Zafar, Asim Azhar, and Aima Baig.
Mustafa Afridi is the writer of drama.
