Like Really?? Our Director Felt Fawad & I Had Zero Chemistry in 'Humsafar' - Mahira
The popular Pakistani TV show, Humsafar won million of hearts owing to the sizzling, subtle romance between Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan. The couple's magical on-screen chemistry was the star factor of the show. But do you know, initially the show's director was not convinced about them as a much-in-love couple!!
Humsafar that aired on Pakistani TV in 2011 made Fawad-Mahira household names in the country and with the romantic drama's Indian premiere last year viewers here took liking to their on-screen romance as married couple Ashar andKhirad. However, director Sarmad Khoosat was worried about their lack of interaction on the show's set and thought the drama would tank due to their "zero chemistry".
"The biggest fear of our director was that the show will tank, because according to him, Fawad and I had zero chemistry. He would always be telling us to rehearse more, to at least hold hands," Mahira revealed to a media agency.
"But when the show went on air, our director called us and said, 'Both of you are magic'," she added.
Humsafar portrayed the emotional journey of Ashar and Khirad, who fall in love after marrying each other. The story was about how two strangers with strikingly opposite personalities fall in love after an arranged marriage.
