Meher Posh the newly started 7th Sky productions drama serial on Geo Entertainment is the comeback of the much loved real-life couple Aiza Khan and Danish Taimoor. The couple is back after a long time as an onscreen couple. Penned down by Ramz e Ishq famed Misbah Nousheen, the story seems a simple one-sided love story of Shah Jahan which revolves around a simple girl Mehru who is not aware of Shah Jahan’s feelings for her.

The episode begins with a scene where a family busy in wedding preparations. Mehru the beautiful yet lively girl seems to be her father’s apple of the eye. They are enjoying their time as a happy and loving family. Then we are introduced to another character Shah Jahan played by Danish Taimur who is obediently serving Mehru’s family just because he loves Mehru and wants to be see her all the time but he always used to hide his feelings and pose like he is doing all these favors just because of Master Sahab, father of Mehru.

Meher Posh as the title of the play says is all about hiding the love, concealing of one’s feelings for others. This is what Shah Jahan is exactly doing, he is concealing his feelings for Meher from her as well as his mother and Mehru’s family but he has committed a mistake he fails to conceal his interest for Mehru in front of his loafer friends who used to tease him everywhere by taking her name.

Then there is another character’s introduction, a woman who really wants to make Mehru her daughter in law but she is shocked and more than shock she is burning with jealousy when she comes to know that her sister in law has already asked her proposal and their wedding is fixed. This character is really a malicious one, she wants to make Mehru his son’s bride because he is a government officer and earns well. She is so vile that she even prays that the marriage doesn’t happen as she is unable to control her envious feelings to see her sister in law getting married.

Well, the malicious lady seems to belong to a lower middle class but her decorated house is suggesting that she belongs to a well to do family. Mehru’s fiance seems an idealist person who has set a certain standard for his life partner to be, and that is she should be pure, she should not have involved anywhere before. Well, it seems that his ideal is broken when he sees Shah Jahan helping Meher in shopping. The first thing comes in his mind is who is this boy?
