With each new episode, Mere Paas Tum Ho is achieving new heights of success. The overwhelming praise coming the serial and its cast’s way is certainly well-deserved. Where on one hand the story offers a deep insight into human psychology at play in marital relationships, on the other hand the cast members have each ventured beyond their comfort zones to make Danish, Shehwar and Mehwish come to life for the audiences.
In a recent interview, playwright, Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar had hinted at Mere Paas Tum Ho being based on a true story. Ever since, the audiences had been wanting to know the person from whose life the serial drew its inspiration.
It seems the character of Danish played by Humayun Saeed is based on the life of restaurateur, Rasikh Ismail.
A day after the twelfth episode of Mere Paas Tum Ho went on air, Rasikh Ismail put out an Instagram story saying, “Jee woh mein hee hoon jis ney 2 takay ki larki lay liyae 50 million + choray hain! #MaafKarDo”
As per Ismail’s Instagram post, he is the guy who had once given-up an offer of more than 50 million for a girl who did no reciprocate his affection or loyalty.
