In the early 1990s, a comedy drama serial called 'Khala Khairan' was aired on Pakistan Television (PTV). Not only did the drama serial become immensely popular because of its witty dialog delivery and stunning acting performances, but most of the credit belonged to the person behind the camera who called all the shots. It was none other than Riffat Humayun who took up the charge of writing and directing the play and did it exceptionally well.
Riffat has been quite selective in the kind of work she likes to do and that is why the viewers have not been able to see much of her dramas onscreen. In the late 1990s, she directed a long play titled 'Tum Mera Muqaddama Lado Gey', which aired from the former channel STN. The play revolved around a divorced couple, played by Farhan Ali Agha and Mahnoor Baloch.
In recent times, Riffat penned the drama serial 'Dil-e-Abad', which aired from Hum TV. The drama was directed by TV actor turned director Saife Hasan and earned a lot of appreciation.
