It is reported that Alibaba: Dastaan-e-Kabul will continue but will not have a new actress taking on Tunisha Sharma’s role.

Tunisha tragically took her own life while on the show’s set and her mother later claimed that her co-star Sheezan Khan was the reason why Tunisha took the extreme step.

The pair were reportedly dating but later split up.

A short while later, rumours began circulating that Alibaba: Dastaan-e-Kabul would be cancelled.

It is reported that the show will go on, however, it will not replace Tunisha with another actress to take on her role.

Instead, there will be a new lead pair of characters and there will be a focus on new storylines.


The show is currently being filmed three kilometres away from the original set.

One cast member said: “It is not easy to shoot post the tragedy, but life has to go on, and we are glad that the production house and channel have decided to continue with the show.”

Tunisha Sharma’s mother Vanita had claimed that Sheezan used to beat her.
