His family consists of him, his wife Nayyara (Ismat Zaidi) and three daughters Fala (Madiha Rizvi), Haya (Ayeza Khan) and Fariya (Minal Khan). They all are well-mannered but middle-class as compared to Shaista. Shaista always insults Nayyara and treats her daughters as servants. Muskaan goes to her aunt Nayyara's house, where she asks Fala to do her pedicure and manicure as Fala had done many parlour courses but says not to even do anything to her face, as she will do that from some other place, and tells to wear good clothes during engagement.
