The role of Ayema is played by beautiful Mehwish Hayat, while Ayeza’s role is portrayed by multi-talented model cum actress Aamina Sheikh. The play has taken the inspiration from the Urdu Classic novel ‘Mirat-ul-Uroos’ ( مراۃ العروس, The bride’s mirror) written by Deputy Nazir Ahmad Dehlvi. The original novel was first was publish in 1869. The original novel’s story revolved around two sisters Akbari and Asghari.

The drama is written by none other than Umera Ahmed who is also known for writing hit drama serials like Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Meri Zaat Zarra-e-Benishan, Shehr-e-Zaat, Uraan and Mano Salwa etc.
It will be interesting to see how Umera Ahmed incorporates original Mirat-ul-Uroos’s main idea of women education, importance of good upbringing and necessity of cultivating values & character in our current materialistic lifestyle. Mirat-ul-Uroos is also a comeback of good looking Mehwish Hayat, who was missing from the television screen for quite some time now. Aamina Sheikh is sure going to spellbound all of us with her performance. TV audiences still remember Aamina Sheikh’s brilliant performances in ‘Maat‘ and ‘Daam‘ (directed by Mehreen Jabbar).
