With the incredible success of Humsafar on India's Zee Zindagi, the drama's leading lady Mahira Khan has wooed her Indian fans and is now visiting Mumbai to meet them.

During media interactions in Delhi, Mahira was repeatedly asked the same questions: when she will work with heart throb Fawad again, and whether she will sign a Bollywood film.

The success of Humsafar in India, courtesy Zindagi TV, has won millions of hearts. Indian publications say the drama is a "breath of fresh air" and say it is a must watch due to the chemistry between Fawad and Mahira.

Humsafar had its finale on November 8 on Zee Zindagi and the channel has now hosted a competition on its Twitter account called #MadforMahira in which fans are asked to express their appreciation and love for the actor to get a chance to meet the stunning star in Mumbai.

The channel also tweeted that Mahira has reached Mumbai and has attended the Zindagi press conference:

The Sadqay Tumhare actor is currently in the spotlight of her Indian followers in Mumbai and has also expressed gratitude for the love and admiration she has received from her fans in India.

Sarmad Sultan Khoosat’s record breaking serial Humsafar was first aired on Hum TV in 2012. The much-loved onscreen couple of the heartthrob Fawad Khan and the stunning Mahira Khan were lauded by viewers in Pakistan, and later even in India.

Indian fans have already seen Fawad alongside Sanam Saeed in Zindagi Gulzar Hai and also in his Bollywood debut film Khoobsurat. However, Mahira made her debut in India with Humsafar and fans instantly fell in love with the talented star.

India's newest venture Zindagi TV treats viewers to the best of new-age Pakistani TV dramas on offer. It has previously aired Zindagi Gulzar Hai and Durre Shehwar (renamed Dhoop Chaon) starring Samina Peerzada.

The famous Hum TV tele-film Behud starring Nadia Jamil and Fawad Khan was also recently aired on Zindagi.

Fahad Mustafa’s Mastana Mahi and Mehwish Hayat’s Mirat-ul-Uroos (renamed Aaina Dulhan Ka), which are currently airing in India, are also getting positive reviews from the Indian audience.

Fans gave rave reviews about Humsafar after it ended on Saturday:
