PTV was the only source of entertainment 15 years back when there were no or very few local entertainment channels in Pakistan. This period can be considered a golden time before the decline of the national channel where we saw talented actors emerging on screen including Humayun Saeed, Aijazz Aslam, Faisal Qureshi and other names of this group. One of such powerful projects was drama serial Chandni Raatein which went on air on PTV in 2002.

Her elder son Aamir is married to Abginey but despite of leading a happy married life for 8 years, the couple was still deprived of the happiness of children. Bee Jaan forces Aamir to marry Maha and following her orders, he do so. Maha is a real brat and was previous married too. She gives a hard time to Bee Jaan while Abginey's reputation is at stake.
