There have been a number of drama writers in the history of Pakistani television who have used the power of their pen to highlight the social evils existing in the society on a larger scale or a particular part of the society. Noorul Huda Shah has also been one of the playwrights who raised their pen to write issue based dramas and bring out the social evils existing in the feudal setup of the country.
Viewers might remember the drama serial 'Marvi' as one of her earliest contributions to drama writing. Although based on the popular Sindhi folk tale by the same name, she modernized the story of the play by adapting it in accordance with the society as it was back then. She also wrote the drama 'Jungle'. Although her start was from PTV, she moved to private channels soon after they were launched.
Her famous drama serials on private channels are 'Ishq Gumshuda' (Hum TV) and 'Zeenat Binte Sakina Hazir Ho' (Geo TV). She has also written a number of long plays and telefilms such as 'Saans Le Ae Zindagi', 'Tapish', 'Hum Bichray Se Log' on Hum TV and 'Saat Aasman Talay' on ARY Digital.
