This forces him to create emotional barriers between himself and others.
He goes to Italy where he meets Liza, a gifted artist brimming with vitality but haunted by a tumultuous past.
Their fateful meeting intertwines their destinies in a tale of profound human connection.
Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan will reunite for the first time since their successful pairing in The Legend of Maula Jatt.
Joining the talented cast are Hamza Ali Abbasi and Hania Amir.

“I’m so proud of you Yasir. The way you support her respectfully and responsibly, may this equation continue always.”
Another said: “Those men who appreciate their women and celebrate their success are the best humans on earth. You are great.”
The series is directed by Momina Duraid who has worked on hit projects such as Bin Roye, Chand Tara and Fairy Tale.
Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo has been filmed in various locations including Italy, Pakistan and the UK. A release date has not yet been announced.
