Kahkashan is an Indian television series about six great masters of modern Urdu and Islamic poetry: Hasrat Mohani, Jigar Moradabadi, Josh Malihabadi, Majaz Lucknawi, Firaq Gorakhpuri, and Makhdoom Mohiuddin. The serial was produced, researched and scripted by Ali Sardar Jafri and directed by Jalal Agha and telecast in 1991–1992. Music was scored by Jagjit Singh, the famous ghazal singer of India. The series was also shown on TV Asia channel USA in 2006.


It was Sardar Jafri's dream to make such a serial on Urdu writers as a tribute and also with the intent to popularize and expose the general Indian audience to the modern masters of Urdu poetry. The series was telecast in eighteen episodes in 1991–1992.
