Haseeb Pasha attributed the popular series’ 2002 cancellation to a lack of interest on the part of the producers and other PTV stakeholders. He added that Hafeez Tahir, the show’s originator, producer, and writer, had a keen interest in its creation but that no one had bothered to continue the production after Tahir’s retirement.

The updated series, according to Haseeb Pasha, has been in development at the Alhamra Arts Centre on The Mall in Lahore since February 2022. A puppet theatre was recently integrated into the production .Samina Ahmed, a TV producer and actor who once served as the Lahore Arts Council’s deputy director of programmes, introduced this puppet theatre thirty years ago. Children predominately attend the combined entertainment of Ainak Wala Jin and Putli Tamasha, which draws sizable crowds to Alhamra every Sunday.

PTV Lahore created and aired the children’s television programme Ainak Wala Jin in Pakistan. Due to its humour and fanciful plot, it was very well-liked by kids in the 1990s.


Hafeez Tahir described the concept as a synthesis of science fiction, fantasy, and reality.
