The wonderful chemistry between veteran actress Sania Saeed and Atiqa Odho, who made her debut as Sitara. The duo is back after more than two decades. They will be reunited on screen in Pyari Bitto.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, Saeed expressed her feelings about sharing the screen with Atiqa Odho after such a long time.
“Actually, I don’t feel anything. I only feel it when others say it has been more than 20 years since we last shared the screen,” she said. “We have known each other and stayed friends all this time so it doesn’t feel like we have been away, and therefore it doesn’t feel strange at all.”
Pyari Bitto basically surrounds around a bunch of issues which also include Alzheimer’s disease. Atiqa Odho plays the mother of Bitto, which is, in fact, Sania Shamshad, in the drama serial. Saeed, on the other hand, plays Bitto’s aunt who adopts her later.

Along with Atiqa Odho, Farah Shah, Rashid Farooqui, Nayyar Ejaz, Fawad Khan (from Jeevan Hathi) and Tipu Sharif will also be playing roles. Sania Saeed, talking about her character in the serial, explained,
“The connection between me and Atiqa is her character’s daughter.
Saeed also said the drama is about relationships and knowing theirs respect.
“It’s about these women and their relationship. You know, when you love someone, you don’t stop. I would say it is about people not knowing when to stop,” she said. “When you love someone, you have to know when to stop, otherwise it doesn’t remain good. It turns into a bad relationship.”
“It’s about people and it’s more female centric. But it has a completely different take on relationships. Mostly dramas are about saas bahu and all the relationships. But there are so much more to life and so many stimuli that change lives and relationships. And it’s not always that which is portrayed in our plays.
Pyari Bitto deals with other factors that affect our relationships. There sure are exploitative relationships but it can’t always be a bad person. But a disease, a circumstance, even a temperament that affects relationships. And Pyari Bitto is all about that.
This drama serial will be on air from September 9 on Express Entertainment.
