Shehr-e-Zaat (lit: The City Of Self) (Urdu: شہرذات‎) is a 2012 Pakistani spiritual romantic[1] drama serial based on the novel of the same name by Umera Ahmed. It is directed by Sarmad Sultan Khoosat, and produced by Momina Duraid and Abdullah Kadwani. It stars Mahira Khan, Mikaal Zulfiqar and Mohib Mirza in the leads.

The Hum network gave its program three Hum Awards, including Best Drama Serial,[2] having nominated it in seven categories.[3] Mohib Mirza was nominated for best supporting actor at the Pakistan Media Awards in 2013. A special transmission was held in Karachi and broadcast on Hum TV at the conclusion of the drama. It was also broadcast in India on Zindagi Channel under the same name.


Shehr-e-Zaat revolves around a beautiful day-dreamer Falak Sher Afgan (Mahira Khan); an only child to very rich parents. Falak is a student of fine arts who makes the sculpture of the man of her dreams and falls head over heels in love when she finds the breathing manifestation of it in Salman Ansar (Mikaal Zulfiqar).

Reception and rebroadcasts[edit]

In a blog on The Tribune, a writer wrote about "misplaced knowledge of Islam" due to the way the story presented Sufism and Islamization.[4] Dawn declared the series as one of the highlights of 2012.[5]

Zindagi Channel began broadcasting this series in India starting August 13, 2015.[6]
