Sona Chandi (Urdu: سونا چاندی‎) is a classic comedy-drama television serial produced by PTV. The story of the drama revolves around a couple who came to a city in search of work. The role of Sona is played by Hamid Rana and his wife Chandi (Sheeba Arshad). This simple, innocent couple during their jobs in different houses, help many people in solving their problems.


The play was inspired by a real couple named Sona(male) and Chandi(female) from Kallur Kot a Tehsil city of District Bhakkar of Pakistani Punjab. Munnu Bhai(the writer of the play) who was educated in Kallur kot during his father's posting as station master in the city before 1947, has mentioned his inspiration of these roles in his numerous interviews. Sona is still alive and lives in Kallur Kot. During one of his visits to Kallur kot a few years back, Munnu Bhai got to meet the real Sona.[1]
