But what’s keeping our batteries charged are the nominations. Did you know that Yakeen Ka Safar is nominated in every major category?! Yeah! Join us and let’s take a look at the nominations and pick SiddySays favourites from the Drama Serial Categories.
Best Actor Male – Popular
- Ahad Raza Mir – ‘Yakeen Ka Safar’
- Adnan Siddiqui – ‘Sammi’
- Mikaal Zulfiqar – ‘Alif Allah Aur Insaan’
- Noman Ejaz – ‘O Rungreza’
- Feroze Khan – ‘Woh Ek Pal’
- Zahid Ahmed – ‘Daldal’
Adnan Siddiqui For Sammi: Adnan Siddiqui turned a villainous character into an integral supporting role in Sammi and became an instant hit with the audience, receiving critical appreciation for his loyalty towards his tribes chief and values as a family man. As the drama unfolds, he reveals his true colours and battle between good and evil.
Best Actor Female – Popular
- Sajal Aly – ‘Yakeen Ka Safar’
- Mawra Hocane – ‘Sammi’
- Kubra Khan – ‘Alif Allah Aur Insaan’
- Ushnah Shah – ‘Alif Allah Aur Insaan’
- Sajal Aly – ‘O Rungreza’
- Armeena Khan – ‘Daldal’
Sajal Aly For Yakeen Ka Safar: We think that this is like a no brainer for us. Sajal’s performance as Dr. Zubia who comes from a regressive household, narrowly escapes assault and has to bear torture and disgrace from the people who are supposed to protect her. Sajal powerfully portrays the character in all the different shades and creates a subtle balance between her emotions and the hardships she faces in her life.
Best Drama Serial – Popular
- ‘Yakeen Ka Safar’
- ‘Alif Allah Aur Insaan’
- ‘O Rungreza’
Alif Allah Aur Insaan revolves around the concept of how the Almighty will reward his banday for their hardwork, will and determination to do right. The serial takes you on a spiritual journey with your faith and highlights the element of trust and the importance of relationships.

- Imran Ashraf and Ushna Shah – ‘Alif Allah Aur Insaan’
- Bilal Abbas Khan and Sajal Aly – ‘O Rungreza’
- Yumna Zaidi and Zahid Ahmed – ‘Yeh Raha Dil’
Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly – ‘Yakeen Ka Safar’ because these two complement each other in reel life and their chemistry is endearing. Ps. It’s like a no brainer for us any way.
Best Original Sound Track – Popular

- Sab Tau Ucha Naam Hai Allah – ‘Alif Allah Aur Insaan’

- Yeh Raha Dil Han Mera Dil – ‘Yeh Raha Dil’
- Kesi Hai Khamoshi – ‘Khamoshi’
Surmai Shaamon Se Mil Ke – ‘O Rungreza’ by Sahir Ali Bagga is a melodic prowess of Mr. Bagga, but what’s sweet is you also get to hear Sajal Aly croon in some parts of the song with the mestro himself.
