Rise & Fall of Pakistan Drama Industry – PDI

There was a time when Pakistani dramas were considered as the best dramas of sub-continent. Pakistan Drama Industry (PDI) started in 1960s and since the beginning of television, PTV was the only channel to produced Pakistani dramas, and the 1st ever super hit drama was “Khuda Ki Basti” which went on air on PTV in 1969.

After that many super hit dramas were produced including 50-50, Alif Noon, Sona Chandi, Aangan Tehra, Ankahi, Dhoop Kinare, Sunehray Din, and Alpha Bravo Charlie among others.

Surely, it was the rise of PDI, and the golden era of PTV that produced such super hit dramas which made records in the history of Pakistan. But unfortunately, PDI became commercialized after 1990s; and not only forget to produced such quality dramas, but also lost their level at which they were during the decades of 1970s, 80s, & 90s.

It was the downfall of our industry. But soon PEMRA issued licenses to many private channels, and the channels took responsibility to get theirs level back.

And finally HUM TV took one step forward to bring back PDI at their rise. And produced such amazing dramas which not only played a major role to bring our industry level back at rise but also made new records. Humsafar, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Dastaan, Mera Naseeb, Kankar, Durr e Shehwar, and Dil e Muztar were the dramas which set new records in the drama history of our country.

Now a days, Pakistani dramas are being produced on not only typical themes but also promoting Indian culture in our dramas. And producers are crossing all the limits for the sake of TRPs by broadcasting bold scenes, and adopting Western & Indian culture etc. It seems our industry is going to suffer downfall once again.

If our industry stop showing Indian culture in our dramas, and start promoting our own culture, then our industry will not go at rise but also our culture will be highly promoted across the world.

Maya Ali presented her terms to Bollywood

Maya Ali is one of the most talented, charming and renowned Pakistani actress. She started her career as VJ on different TV channels like Samma TV, Waqt News and Duniya News.

Since 2012, she has appeared in many super hit drama serials. She first appeared as an actress in the drama serial “Durr-e-Shahwar” on HUM TV. And then she got the role in the drama serial “Aik Nayee Cinderella.” Since then the doors of success opened for her. She has not only been appeared in hit drama serials but also she has done many commercials, fashion shoots for the leading brands, and done ramp walk as well. Now it’s time to spread the magic across the border.

Since she is so talented and the gorgeous, so she could be another one to appear in Bollywood movies. As her drama characters have already created the waves across the border.

Few weeks ago, a production company invited Maya Ali to India. While speaking to a news and entertainment portal, she stated,

“They called my manager around three months ago and asked for my availability. Before anything, I mentioned my restrictions and when they were okay with it, my visa process began.”

She proved her enthusiasm when she told the production house that she wasn’t desperate to debut on the silver screen and would work on her own terms.

“I met the producer, male lead, and the director. I told them directly that I am not dying to come to Bollywood or anything because I have a lot of work in my own country.”

The meetings have gone smooth, but reportedly Maya Ali has a few reservations regarding her character’s wardrobe.

“I have some issues regarding wardrobe. Until those issues are sorted out, I won’t say yes to them.”

It is really impressive that Maya Ali respect her moral values, and will only deal if the things will go in her way. Maya Ali had also confirmed that she’ll never compromise on quality, especially on the other side of border.

She further stated,

“I recently met Mahira Khan, and she told me that when she is on the sets of Raees, she has Pakistan’s flag carved on her shoulder. Similarly, I believe I can’t wear revealing clothes or be part of make-out scenes. There’s a lot of respect that I’ve earned here, and I have a responsibility as a public figure. I’d rather do an A-Grade Pakistani film than do a C-Grade film there”

Surely, Maya Ali is an avatar of amazing and strong willed woman.
