Tehreem has a younger sister named Takbeer, who is the female lead of the drama. She loves Moosa and is engaged to him.
The twist comes when Tehreem dies while giving birth to her child. Takbeer, like a good sister, looks after her sister’s child as her own. Seeing her affection for her sister’s child, Takbeer’s family decides and pressurizes her to leave her love and marry Khawar.
Takbeer is in a tight spot!
What will she do with her life? Will she take the responsibility of her sister’s child marry Khawar or listen to her heart and keep her engagement with Moosa intact?
Will Khawar become a better person after Tehreem’s death or stay the same for the rest of his life?
