Kuch Ankahi | Empowerment, wit, and love galore
The highly anticipated drama serial, Kuch Ankahi is a modern-day and light-hearted drama that is full of messages. The drama discusses issues relating to women’s legal and religious right to property, workplace harassment, pressurizing girls for marriage, body shaming, and many more problems prevalent in Pakistani society, wrapped in humor and wit.
The plot revolves around Agha Jan’s ancestral house where he lives with his three daughters. Agha is not willing to share the property with his sister. His second daughter Aliya is working day in and day out to settle the claims over the house. The story also takes an amazing turn when Salman – another young real estate agent – enters their house as a tenant.

Mira Sethi as Samiya is the eldest daughter of Agha Jan. After graduation, Samiya started entrepreneurship of small decoration pieces to run her expenses. She is engaged but her in-laws have been avoiding the marriage for 3 years. She does not seem happy with her engagement.
Sajal Aly as Aliya is the middle child of Agha Jan. She works as a real estate agent and burns midnight oil so that she can deal with all the claims on her father’s house. She does not have time for marriage or love for that matter.
