LAHORE: Pakistan Television (PTV) will air the second part of its famous drama serial “Ainak Wala Jin” which had achieved heights of popularity during 1993-1996 through its first part.           

“We will start the series from where its first part ended. The drama series is being started again to provide fun in a healthy atmosphere to people belonging to all age groups including children, women and men,” said Shahzad Qaisar, who played the central character of Ainak Wala Jin in the first part.

Qaiser said that the viewers would be able to enjoy scenic beauty including attractive sites of Azad Kashmir and other parts of the country in the series.

The play will have a lot of fun and amusement for the viewers as its writer Tariq Sahili has made a conscious effort to provide opportunity of humour and entertainment to them in a healthy atmosphere, he added.

Qaiser further said that the series is being launched as per the demands of the people who were fed up with watching “indecent” dialogues and negativities portrayed in TV shows in the name of entertainment.

Almost all the team of the series will be the same except for those actors who had to be replaced because of their ages and other issues, he said and added that Idrees Adil will be the director while Shafqat Cheema will serve the role of the villain.

The series will begin on Eidul Azha and the first play will be titled “Nastoor Jin ki Wapsi”, Qaiser hoped.

    Wow! I remeber all the details of early series. Nastoor, Zakoot, Charly Mamoo, Ben Batoori and Hamoon. I also remember how enthusatic we were to watched this series.Recommend

    They have to add better animations this time , level of fun is bit change. I hope they must have considered it. can’t wait for teaser :D


  • Aug 29, 2012 - 7:22PM

    I am part of the generation that didn’t grow up with the series, I have seen a few episodes, this could have been awesome if it weren’t made by PTV, because PTV has this ability to make everything look like its from 1980 low budget TV. … Sad … such a series had the potential to feature some amazing special effects and whatnot

    Wow! I remember all characters very well. Nastoor, zakoota, charly mamo, ben batoori and hamoon. And the boy Imran and girl. They also grown now. I also remember how enthusatic we were to watch this play. Amazing PTV show for children.Recommend

    It is really sad that in this age of internet, the full episodes of Ainak Wala Jin are still not available. At least PTV website could provide as with full episodes of this beautiful drama. Moreover, Ainak Wala Jin 2 was also aired some years back and that too, is not to be found anywhere.

    @Ali. Acorn Guts was referring to the fact that ET reminded him/her how long it has been since “Ainak Wala Jin” last aired. He/She has been inadvertently reminded of how much they have aged hence the reference to dentures and walking sticks :P

    I’m sure it wouldn’t be as enjoyable as the previous one.
    The Ainak Wala Jinn team came to perform in our school when I was in class 1. After shaking hands with Zakoota, I felt I was the luckiest kid on Earth :) Don’t really remember if I ever missed any episode of this show.
