So many exciting dramas are coming up, we really can’t contain ourselves. Right now we’re hooked to dramas like ‘Ishq Tamasha’ and Ramazan special ‘Suno Chanda,’ while we also wait for upcoming partition serial ‘Aangan’ (reuniting Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir). Now we’re highly anticipating another drama that’s just unveiled itself – ‘Alif.’

The reason the drama is called ‘Alif’ is that “apart from being the first alphabet, it holds the key to all the mysteries of life”

…And it’s these very mysteries that entwine all three characters together.
