PTV drama serial Dhuwan was aired in 1994 and it had virtually become a household item then. Written by Ashir Azeem and directed by Sajjad Ahmed, it was an action-packed story of five friends who join to form a crack team of police commandos tackling criminal activities as vigilantes in Quetta.

Azeem wrote the script for Dhuwan during his time at the Civil Services Academy where he met several police personnel. Being inexperienced at writing scripts for television, Azeem initially wrote the story in the form of a novel and later developed it into a formal script on the advice of a television executive. It is believed that the drama’s popularity even compelled the Pakistani youth to join up with the police in serving the country.
