Acclaimed director and screenwriter, Sarmad Khoosat, sent fans abuzz yesterday after a tweet regarding his blockbuster drama Humsafar. The brain behind one of Pakistan’s most popular dramas wrote, “Woh humsafar HAI,” borrowing from the lyrics of the drama’s OST “Woh humsafar tha” and in the process hinting that may be he’s planning a sequel.
And on top of that, he also tagged super stars Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan:

Of course, when the die-hard fans of the director as well as of Mahira and Fawad read the tweet, they could not contain their excitement. Fans seemed elated and were quick to speculate if either the play was coming back for fans with part 2 or there was some new and more exciting project in the pipeline that the dream team is working on:
Omg humsafar part 2 is coming?!?!? Pls say yes

However, all this speculation was soon put to rest when Mahira tweeted about it herself. It turns out that Humsafar completed seven years of success and to celebrate the achievement, both Sarmad and Mahira shared their thoughts on their respective social media handles.
Mahira took the chance to share how grateful she is about the love and support she has received over the years. “My dear Humsafars, thank you for the unconditional love over the years. Out of all things that Humsafar brought with it, it’s the love I am grateful for the most. Love and magic forever, yours and yours only, Khirad. #7yearsofHumsafar,” she wrote.
Ever since Humsafar, Mahira and Fawad have not worked on a project together — barring Maula Jutt which we are yet to see — so it was only natural for fans to get excited. Here’s to hoping we get to see them together on the screen soon.
