Year 2019 was deprived of a feature film by Humayun Saeed, however the star came out with a drama that is being talked about everywhere ! Humayun Saeed is currently riding on the success of his drama Meray Pass Tum Ho. This is in fact Saeed’s latest drama after a long time and it wasn’t even anticipated that he will be coming back to television after his back to back hits on silver screen.
However while he worked on the scripting of his upcoming films, the Pyarey Afzal director, producer, writer trio came together to create Meray Pass Tum Ho. The drama is written by Khalil ur Rehman Qamar who is known for his writing be it dramas or films, and is brilliantly executed by director Nadeem Baig.
We reached out to Humayun Saeed tofind out how he came across the script of the serial and turns out it wasn’t even originally written for him! Humayun Saeed started off by addressing the recent claim made by an Indian writer Shagufta Rafique who has in fact written Aashique 2.
Khalil ur Rehman Qamar is that writer who never writes a script based on a story that comes from the producer. Be it films or dramas, he writes and creates the story himself. I have tried many a times to give him a story for which he writes the script but he never agrees. Shagufta is a dear friend, and she is of the view that she narrated a story to me about a decade ago and this serial is inspired by that story. However it is nothing like that Khalil sb never writes a scripts based on someone else story.
Then went on to even reveal how he acquired this script in the first place.
I had acquired this script from producer/actor Hasan Soomroo. He was leaving the country and settling abroad. So he shared the script with me. After reading the script I realized that Khalil sb not only writes good scripts for my productions but also for others!
Meanwhile, Epk also reached to Khalil ur Rehman Qamar who stated that he has never even met Shagufta Rafique so he couldn’t have possibly hear her story. He refrained on commenting on the matter any further and inquire with the producer of the serial i.e. Humayun Saeed.
We then reached out to Hassan Soomroo who corroborated with Humayun’s story.
Yes this was this was 4-5 years back. I was moving to US so I contacted Humayun and shared this script that Khalil sb was writing for me. , Humayun then got back to me and expressed his interest in the script, so I sold him all the episodes that had already been written.
