There are only two trending topics in Pakistan these days, one: if elections will be held on the 8th and what will be the outcome. And second: will Shahmeer get the love of his life Shibra. Ishq Murshid has subtle political themes interwoven in between the lines and fans are loving the drama. Episode 18 aired last night and looks like the world of Ishq Murshid is also coloured in the shades of election. We got our very own Fazal Bakhsh played by Ali Gul Mallah raising election awareness alongside the pretend Fazal Bakhsh aka Bilal Abbas Khan.
Fazal Bakhsh subtly hinted on how the upcoming elections will go while also shared how voting for the wrong candidates is an insult to the whole nation. It was fun, it was comedic and it got more traction than Shibra’s acceptance of Fazal Bkhash’s love.
Check out Fazal Bakhsh getting into the election spirit with his signature Bhallay:
