Astaghfaar is a TV show which airs on Hero TV. The series is hosted by Veena Malik and airs on weekdays at the 8 pm timeslot PKT in the Islamic month of Ramadan.

The show has been a subject of controversies even before its initiation. The channel previously planned to cancel the show following a public outcry but later decided to air the first six episodes to gauge the reaction of the viewers.[1] Unexpectedly the show proved to be a TRP churner and generated a hospitable reception from the audience.[2][3]

The show peaked at a near 30 million viewership on 13 August 2012 which marked the episode as one of the most-watched television telecast in Pakistan.[4][5][6] After the overwhelming response from the audience the show was reinstated to air for its complete full season. Malik on such an unpredictable reaction stated "It’s a great feeling that people across the globe have appreciated my effort and also, accepted my show. The show has touched the heart of people which is gauged with the TRP ratings".[7][8]
