Pakistani dramas Dhoop Kinare & Tanhaiyaan, to be aired in Saudi Arabia



One of the most popular drama of Pakistan history Dhoop Kinare, will be aired in Saudi Arbia in June this year, PTV officials said on Thursday.

Last week Pakistan’s information minister Fawad Chaudhry announced during a visit to the Saudi capital of Riyadh that Islamabad would soon export its television series to the Kingdom


“We have selected two very popular dramas, *Dhoop Kinare* and *Tanhaiyaan*, for Arabic subtitles,” Shahzia Sikander, PTV’s director International Relations told *Arab News. “We will be able to send *Dhoop Kinare* to Saudi Arabia by June this year.”

She said the move would not only be a source of revenue for Pakistan but also bring recognition for local television series and actors and help Saudi nationals understand the culture of Pakistan.

“This is the first time that Pakistan Television is subtitling Pakistani drama into Arabic for Saudi viewers,” Sikander said.
