LAHORE: Pakistan Television is set to make a second part of its popular mid-1990s drama serial for children 'Ainak-wala jin'

The series was hugely popular among local audiences during the three years of its airing (1993-1996).

“We will start the series from where the first part ended. The drama series is being started again to provide fun in a healthy atmosphere of enjoyment to the people belonged to all age groups including children, women and men,” said Shahzad Qaisar a central character of the series talking to APP here on Wednesday.

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

The play promises fun and amusement for its viewers as its writer Tariq Sahili says he has made "a conscious effort to provide opportunity of humour and entertainment."

Sahili said that the series was being launched following great demand from its fans, who had become fed up with the culture of indecent dialogues and other negative tactics being used in dramas and television shows being aired in the name of entertainment.

He said that almost all team of the series will be the same except those actors which had to be changed because of their age. The writer added that Idrees Adil will be director of the series and Shafqat Cheema will play role of villain. The first episode of the series will be titled “Nastoor jin ki wapsi”.

The series is scheduled for airing on the occasion of Eidul Azha, he said.

He said that the drama series “Ainak wala jin” was being shown on PTV on repeated telecast based on strong demand by the viewers and he termed it the main reason for the revival of the series in the form of a second part.

Yes! So looking forward to this :-D Also, must add something about this comment: fans....had become fed up with the culture of indecent dialogues and other negative tactics being used in dramas and television shows being aired in the name of entertainment Replacing things like plot and character with simple prurience is a timeworn television tactic to get ratings. This trashy tactic works, and may even stimulate some body parts. But it leave the mind un-stimulated and unsatisfied. And maybe this is why a children's show like Ainak Wala Jinn was so beloved, for it's characterisations, story lines and plot arcs. Here's another reason why 1996 was such a sad turning point, a democratic government got thrown out, the second wave of Pakistani pop receded, the Taliban took Kabul, and Ainak Wala Jinn was cancelled. This news article reminded me why I held 1993 to 1996 with such significance in my mind. Ainak Wala Jinn was running back then! I just have one question left, Mein Kya Karoun! Mein Kis Ko Khaoun!

This is the main problem,with whole Pakistani society,there is no use to invent the wheel again,no doubt it was a gd series and attracted many pple in mid nineties, but lets try something new,why we want to show the audience same things again, where the creativity of Pakistani writers has gone?

Awesome show! The best show we had during our childhood. I wish PTV best of luck but i think sequels are not easy to work with because expectations are always high due to the original show. I remember "Guest House" came up with the sequel and it was not as popular as the first one. My best lines for the show "Mujhe kaam batao mei kya kero mei kisko khaoun" Zagota "ullo ullo hello ullo ullo hello asi char so bees (420) tusi no do giyarah (9211)" hamoon jadugar
