    Aanch is the type of emotional drama i have never seen in my whole life.
    It was awesome and heart touching. I never knew it was gret(Now late) Mr. Safi. Later i came to know that, he was Shafi Md. Shah. I knew him only after his death. It was the biggest shock for me. Bcoz, I grew up watching his dramas on TV from my childhood. Althouth I am Indian , i have watched lot of his serials on Nepal television. His style of dialogue delivering was very natural especially in AANCH.

    May Allah bless his soul.
