Now, the drama has been redubbed Karamati and picked up by MBC Bollywood for Arab viewers around the world. The TV channel is known for airing Bollywood movies and Indian soaps for the consumption of the Arab diaspora in France, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, UK and Canada.
About this development, actor Sami Khan said to Images, "It's really nice to see good Pakistani content and projects being dubbed for viewers around the globe. It proves that good content has viewership around the world. The world is actually becoming a global village. A talent has no boundaries now. And congrats to the whole team — Fahad Mustafa and Dr Ali Kazmi for attempting such different content as producers, the writer for the amazing dialogues and the director for perfect execution. And all the co actors for putting their heart in the characters. Hope the international audience loves it the way it's loved in Pakistan."
MCB Bollywood has earlier aired the Mahira and Fawad Khan-starrer Humsafar.
