About Humsafar

The story is based on a novel with the same name written by Farhat Ishtiaq. It is a story of a rich boy Ashar Hussain and his poor paternal cousin Khirad with a third angle in the form of Ashar’s maternal cousin Sara potrayed by Naveen Waqar. Ashar and Naveen are best friends. While Naveen loves Ashar, she doesn’t reveal it to him till the time Asher’s father Baseerat Hussain tells him to marry his poor sister’s daughter Khirad.

Khirad’s mother and Baseerat’s sister is suffering from cancer. It is her last wish to see her daughter getting married. In order to fulfil his sister’s last wish, Baseerat decides to marry his own son to Khirad. This creates havoc in the family as Ashar’s mother Fareeda always saw Naveen, her sister’s daughter as her daughter-in-law.

Despite all the problems, Ashar marries Khirad. Slowly, Khirad becomes an integral member of Ashar’s life. This infuriates Ashar’s mother Fareeda who tries to create a misunderstanding between the two. She gets successful in her task, but fate brings the two together once again, but with yet another family member, Hareem – who ultimately becomes the reason of Asher and Kharid’s reunion.

Tarq-e-taaluqaat pe…
Roya na tu, na main
Lekin yeh kya ke chain se 
Soya na tu, na main

Wo humsafar tha… haan
Wo humsafar tha… haan
Woh humsafar tha 
Magar us se hum-nawa’i na thi..
Wo hamsafar tha
Magar us se hum-nawa’i na thi..

Ke dhoop chhaon ka…
Ke dhoop chhaon ka alam raha, judaai na thi
Wo humsafar tha…
Magar us sey hum-nawa’i na thi…
Ke dhoop chhaon..
Ke dhoop chhaon ka alam raha, judaai na thi
Woh humsafar tha…
Woh humsafar tha…

Aaannn….
Adaavatein thi… 
Taghaaful thaa… 
Ranjishein thhi magar

Adaavatein thi..
Taghaaful thaa… 
Ranjishein theen Magar

Bicharne wale main sab kuch tha bewafai na thi…
Bicharne wale main sab kuch tha bewafai na thi…

Ke dhoop chhaon ka…
Ke dhoop chhaon ka alam raha, judaai na thi..

Wo humsafar tha…
Wo humsafar tha…

Kajal daaron, kurkura surma saha na jaaye
Jin nain mein ye pi basay, dooja kon samaaye
Beecharte waqt un ankhon mein,
Thee hamari ghazal
Beecharte waqt un ankhon mein,
Thee hamari ghazal

Ghazal bhi wo jo,
Kisi ko kabhi sunayi na thi
Ghazal bhi wo jo, 
Kisi ko kabhi sunayi na thi

Ke dhoop chhaon ka…
Ke dhoop chhaon ka alam raha, judaai na thi.

Wo humsafar thaa…
Wo humsafar thaa…
