Is it the promise or Shahjahan’s hidden feelings for Mehru?

The suspicions Naeem has been holding on to so strongly that he ended up divorcing Mehru, lost their relevance in the recent episode. Although  Meher Posh seemed to be revolving around Danish Taimoor and Ayeza Khan’s characters mainly, the recent episode added depth to its other characters as well.

Ali Abbas has been reappearing in the drama serial as Mehru’s former husband Naeem, whose mother has left the house for divorcing a girl as fine as Mehru. Naeem’s resentment towards his mother for choosing a girl not as “decent” as he wished for became even more questionable when his aunt revealed her conspiracy.

Surprisingly, the only person who opposed Naeem’s marriage with Mehru was his aunt, Shakeela Begum, who still hopes to make Mehru her daughter-in-law. Her revelation made Naeem only look like an impulsive person who lost a gem of a person over a misunderstanding. The recent episode also showed why Iffat Rahim’s on-screen appearance as Shakeela Begum continues even after Naeem’s failed marriage.

Is it the promise or Shahjahan’s hidden feelings for Mehru?

Shakeela Begum, who had always envied Naeem’s mother, recently weakened all the accusations against Mehru in one go when she revealed her intention to bring her home. Knowing that her own son, Waqas, wouldn’t do anything to change their financial situation, Shakeela Begum is focused on making her son marry Mehru against his will.

Her intention to marry off an average girl to Naeem so she can make her son marry Mehru also shows how eager she is to turn down Naeem’s mother.

The writer Misbah Nosheen has really added insult to injury in Naeem’s case. The girl he is promised to marry next is none other than Waqas’s love interest. This comes off as surprising as Naeem actually divorced Mehru as he assumed she was involved with someone prior to their wedding. Unaware of what his aunt has plotted next, Naeem is believing that his next bride will surely be someone with a spotless past.

Danish Taimoor continues with his uber-polite role of Shahjahan, who is guilt-ridden for supposedly ruining Mehru’s life. He finds himself caring for Mehru even more after her father’s demise, owing to the promise he made to her father.

Out of due respect, he comes uninvited to help Mehru wherever possible, whether she is going to get a gas cylinder filled or taking her younger sister out for shopping. 

However, keeping his promise intact in the past few episodes wasn’t as difficult as what we’re looking at lately. Shahjahan now even bears all the hatred Mehru has for him after his mother thrashed her with unfounded accusations. 

A recent teaser showed a glimpse of another intense dialogue delivery from Ayeza Khan as her character confronts Shahjahan for interfering in her life, yelling, “Saari dunya kay saamnay mera tamasha banay kay tumhey kitni naflon ka sawab milta hai?

For those who have sympathy with Shahjahan, worry not. Mehru’s sister (played by Zainab Shabir) is head over heels in love with him. Ayat’s disagreement with Mehru sparks an argument every time they speak of Shahjahan. But what is yet to be seen is if he will reciprocate Ayat’s feelings.
