Shehr-e-Ajnabi (transl. Stranger City) is a Pakistani drama series aired on A Plus Entertainment[2] in the year 2013-2014 and was also selected by the Indian channel Zindagi where it aired from 3 February 2016 to 5 March 2016, every Monday to Saturday 10:20 pm.[3]


Shehr-e-Ajnabi is an emotional and encouraging drama revolving around Ufaq. Like any other girl of her age, Ufaq aspires to live her dreams, to pursue higher studies and become a self-reliant woman. However, her dreams shatter when her orthodox parents force her into marriage. Ufaq sees a ray of hope as her in-laws agree to allow her to pursue studies, but once she gets married, her mother-in-law shows her true colour. Things do not remain the same for Ufaq when her husband dumps her and marries her friend. Torn between ideals and the reality of life, Ufaq decides to start her life afresh. The story beautifully highlights Ufaq's journey from being under the yoke to taking a commanding position in her life.
