A thriller Pakistani drama, produced by Iqbal Ansari, Nanhi aired in India on Zindagi channel from 14th January 2016 to 2nd February 2016. Directed by Haseeb Hassan, the star cast of the show include Sajal Ali, Shahood Alvi, Asma Abbas, Javaid Sheikh, and Mona Alam.
The show was premiered every night from Monday to Saturday at 10:20 pm. Nanhi was a little girl who was brought up by Shammo, a professional nurse. She worked in a hospital where she used to kidnap babies. Nanhi was a kidnapped girl too. Nanhi, who always thought Shammo to be her mother, was against her kidnapping and selling babies since she loved little kids. She always wanted one of the kids for her own.
The conflict arises when Nanhi has a baby herself after a series of events. Taking care of new born babies had been taught to Nanhi from the age of four or five and she loved doing it. Shammo, on the other hand, used to give this responsibility to Nanhi until the time she would get a good deal to sell the kids off. A local policeman, the guard at the civil hospital and Shammo, all were involved in this illegal activity. Nanhi had a childhood friend named Chanda. Chanda had an affair with their neighbour Zaman, who despised his wife because he found her fat and ugly, and she had recently given birth to a baby girl.
Nanhi grew to be 15 years old when her mother brought a stolen baby boy in their home. Nanhi grew very fond of and attached to him. But as destiny had it, he died. A devastated Nanhi stole Zaman's daughter and brought her to her home. When Zaman and his wife searched the whole locality and found their daughter in Nanhi's place, they became extremely angry and to teach her a lesson, he assaulted her sexually in her house in the absence of her mother. Nanhi, oblivious to the fact that she had been raped, was extremely happy as Zaman had told her that she would soon give birth to her own baby. When Nanhi realised she was not having a kid, she threw a stone at Zaman which made him and his wife angry. Meanwhile, Zaman's wife created a big scene at Chanda's home because she was having an affair with her husband. Zaman's wife warns Nanhi to not come to their home.
On the other hand, Chanda and Zaman take Nanhi to an unknown house and beat her mercilessly for throwing a stone at Zaman. As he was about to throw her off the balcony after warning her to not tell anybody about the rape, Shahid, a boy who was in love with Nanhi, saved her as he saw both of them taking Nanhi away and followed them. Nanhi ran back to her home and an angry Zaman's wife tried to strangle her. Shahid comes to her rescue again. Nanhi ran to the house of a teacher, Alladino, who lived in the same neighbourhood. He took her to his native house when Nanhi shares with him her pain about no one liking her. Alladino got married to Nanhi and after a while, she got pregnant with his child. Meanwhile Shahid, who knew no whereabouts of Nanhi, informed Shammo about everything and she got Chanda and Zaman behind the bars.
Shammo got arrested when some policemen find out about the child kidnapping. Chanda and Zaman marry each other after they come out of jail. Nanhi appears on a news channel along with Alladino to share her story. And after six months, Nanhi gave birth to a baby girl and lived happily after.
