So in recent times, It was revealed the cast and teasers of the new drama Ehd-e-Wafa. Ehd-e-Wafa is an upcoming 2019 Pakistani military drama television series produced by Momina Duraid under MD Productions in collaboration with Inter-Services Public Relations.

Apparently, because the teasers flashed extensive shots of the country’s prestigious institution and the gentlemen cadets attempting tough obstacles as part of the drill, everyone thought it might be a sequel to Alpha Bravo Charlie.

And when Osman Khalid Butt, one of the leads in Ehd-e-Wafa posted a picture of himself at the shoot with the co-actors Ahad Raza Mir, Wahaj Ali and Ahmed Ali Akbar all dressed in college uniform, and used “#SSG” in the caption, it set some media persons thinking that the proceedings concerned Pak Army’s Special Service Group (SSG).

In an exclusive chat with Gulf News tabloid!, scriptwriter Mustafa Afridi rejects the popular view. He reveals that the series is about childhood friends Shariq, Shehryar, Shahzain and Saad, who are a fun-loving bunch and whose lives are changed once they leave college and enter the practical world.

“Since their names start with the letter ‘S,’ they call themselves the SS gang or SSG,” he adds.

A misunderstanding causes them to split, and they leave college as strangers. They keep running into each other, but can’t reconcile.

The 24-episode serial is directed by Saife Hassan, and has a stellar supporting cast that includes Zara Noor Abbas, Vaneeza Ahmad, and Alizeh Shah.

Well, judging from the promo, the drama looks promising and looks like quality content. We can't wait for the release of the drama which goes on air starting next week.
