e are almost halfway through 2022, and many popular dramas have already come to an end, making way for new narratives. More recently, a slew of new dramas with intriguing and engaging plots have topped the charts. Interestingly, they’re all on Geo Entertainment, which continues to maintain the number one slot.

Some of the most popular genres include family dramas, mystery thrillers, and horror, along with spiritual and religious elements interestingly weaved into the plot.

The drama written by Misbah Nosheen and directed by Siraj ul Haq features Urwa Hocane, Imran Ashraf and Ali Abbas in lead roles. Produced by 7th Sky Entertainment, the story is based on complex familial ties and unsettled conflicts of the past. Imran Ashraf essays the role of Wali, who seems to be rude and arrogant, but in reality, he values honour and cares for his relations. On the other hand, Wali’s cousin, Daniyal (Ali Abbas), is jealous of Wali and leaves no opportunity to defame him. Urwa Hocane portrays the character of Anabia in Badzaat and Wali’s love interest. However, an unfortunate incident changes the course of her life, and she ends up marrying Daniyal instead of Wali. Daniyal is seen making Anabia’s life miserable, while Wali makes sure to stand up for her at every step of the way. Besides Imran, Urwa, and Ali, the serial stars veteran actors Mehmood Aslam, Sajida Syed, Nida Mumtaz and Zainab Qayyum among many others. The actors are doing a commendable job, and we can’t wait to see what fate has in store for Wali and Anabia, who are being manipulated at the hands of Daniyal.
