Nadia Khan plays Dolly, a dumb comedic character- a staple for comedy dramas. With her ability to morph into any character she is handed, Nadia Khan plays Dolly with the utmost charm, you can’t help but giggle at her extremely neurotic ways of dealing with her everyday life. Married to Mustaqeem played by Aijaz Aslam, Dolly struggles to get her husband’s attention with some extremely silly and sometimes annoying plans.
Mustaqeem is a director who is glued to his smartphone- as Dolly whines about it right from the beginning.
