He is a real person!

Mere Paas Tum Ho

Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar’s Mere Paas Tum Ho had everyone falling in love with the protagonist Danish. His story of love and loss is someone else’s real-life ordeal – Rasikh Ismail.

Mere Paas Tum Ho cast Humayun Saeed as a government officer with a decent income whose world centers around his wife Mehwish. Mehwish, played by Ayeza Khan, on the other hand, wants the finer things in life.

Things quickly come to a head, as we see Mehwish down a path of infidelity, moving on to the man she has an extramarital relationship with, her boss Shahwar.
