Writer Saira Raza shared that she had thought of another actor for Hamza’s role TV drama Mere Humsafar but he ended up rejecting it.

The writer revealed that she felt really down and felt disheartened when Farhan Saeed’s name popped up as she has only saw him as Arsal from Suno Chanda, the way Arsal was naughty and immature would not go well with a serious role like Hamza.

Mere Humsafar is the hit of the season. The drama got targeted with criticism in the initial episodes with a lot of toxicity and no presence of the male lead but things changed drastically as soon as Farhan Saeed aka Hamza made his entry. 


Saira shared that only when she saw Hamza stopping Hala’s first wedding was she convinced that Farhan Saeed is the perfect Hamza.

Mere Humsafar has become an international hit with the drama trending in Pakistan, India and even Bangladesh every week. People are in love with the chemistry between Hamza and Hala.


Hamza’s character has managed to make a special place in the hearts of fans. Saira Raza, the writer of Mere Humsafar was a guest on Fuchsia where she talked about many facets of her drama as well as the casting of actors for different roles.
