There are some very capable and excellent actors in the Pakistani drama industry. Some of whose characters, due to their live performances, leave a lasting impression on the hearts of the fans which will be remembered by the audience for many years to come.
Baaghi TV: The choice of dramas is also very important for an actor. There are many actors who have been associated with the industry for a long time, yet they did not get this kind of recognition until they became part of a drama in which they performed well. A well-written script and team can definitely do a great job for an actor. Even when they were part of minor dramas, the best actors in the industry were severely criticized. The most brilliant actors have also given some very disappointing performances in their careers.
There are some plays, very few of which give the actors a new identity. Through these characters, we get to see a side of the actors that we have never seen before. Some of these performances prove that an actor can surprise his audience even after decades of being a part of countless dramas. It depends on the quality of the plays content.
Here is a list of actors who have become more popular than ever because of certain dramas. It would also be fair to say that these were some of his performances that will never be forgotten.
Adnan Siddiqui has been associated with Showbiz for decades, but his drama Mery Paas Tum Ho gave him a reputation he had never had before. In many interviews, Siddique admits that Mery Paas Tum Ho has given him the kind of fame he had never experienced in his vast life.
He was really thankful that when he got the chance to play the role of ‘Shehwar’, it opened new horizons for him. He was expecting nothing but criticism from the fans after playing the role but on the contrary a lot of women were of the opinion that the actor is extremely charming in this role.
Noman Ijaz makes every one of his characters memorable. In his artistic career, he has played all kinds of roles from a romantic hero to a ruthless politician. He has played all kinds of roles, yet the role played by the actor in Dar Si Jaati Hai Silah showed a completely different direction. No one ever had any doubts about Ijaz’s excellent acting skills but his performance in Dar Si Jaati Hai Silah proved that he still had a lot left to offer.
Humayun Saeed proved that an intelligent actor who knows how to advance his career does not have a shelf life! Even after all these decades, Humayun Saeed manages to become more famous than ever by choosing the right projects to work with. Saeed made the most impressive comeback on television with the drama serial Dil Lagi. People fell in love with him again after watching it.
Many viewers thought they saw Humayun Saeed as the best, but this was not the case. Saeed brought tears to the eyes of his audience when he played the role of ‘Danish’. He easily nailed his character and once again became the most famous actor. Since then, his popularity has grown and the love of the audience has been unparalleled. The drama was close to Humayun Saeed’s heart for a number of reasons so he took it as a challenge.
Ahsan Khan has acted in many dramas and films, he has been associated with the showbiz industry for decades. The role that Ahsan played in the TV drama Udaari got an unimaginable response. He played the role of a harasser of a girl and this role was played by the actor with a specific purpose of spreading awareness. He never thought that his role as ‘Pa Imtiaz’ would be so recognizable that it would cover up all the roles played in his extensive career.
This was not the first time Khan had played a negative role but it was the first time he had played such a villainous role. Even those who do not watch Pakistani dramas on a regular basis were well aware of his character and appreciated his acting. When he was initially offered the serial, it was nothing short of a shock to him as he had always played the role of a hero. The experience of his role in ‘Udaari’ changed the way he understood his role in the media industry.
Ahad Raza Mir:
Ahad Raza Mir is a relatively new actor when we compare him with the rest of the actors in this list. He does not have as much experience in the industry compared to his star power. He has excellent acting skills and after Yaqeen ka Safar, he did not choose a single minor drama to work on. Many people still see him as ‘Dr. Asfandyar’, as this character won the hearts of the audience. Mir has previously acted in the drama serial Sammi before Yaqeen Ka Safar, but he did not get the kind of recognition from the drama that he got from Yaqeen Ka Safar.
In an interview, he himself admitted that even when he signed Parvaaz Hai Junoon, he did not enjoy the kind of fame that came after the broadcast of Yaqeen Ka Safar. It was definitely the drama that gave him popularity and recognition. Viewers of this play were already waiting for the actor’s next play as he proved himself as a brilliant actor.
Bilal Abbas Khan:
Bilal Abbas Khan has been well received and has been a part of many popular dramas. One of the characters that identified him is ‘Abdullah’, the character he played in the drama serial Piyaar K Sadqay. When the screams were broadcast, many people criticized Bilal’s performance of the dialogue. His impressions and physical expressions were never disappointing in any of the dramas, but his dialogues were sometimes not the best.
His role in the drama serial Piyaar K Sadqay had won everyone over. It was a challenging role, yet Bilal Abbas has done him full justice. Even the spectators who were criticizing his performance in Cheekh appreciated the actor’s performance in Piyaar K Sadqay, and this project has increased his fan following as this drama has made him more famous than ever.
Fawad Khan’s super hit drama Humsafar made him a national crush! The actor and singer has never had as much success and recognition in his artistic career as the drama serial Humsafar had given him. Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan’s on-screen duo proved to be the main hit of the drama.
Humsafar’s popularity not only made Fawad Khan popular within Pakistan but also the biggest reason for his success across the border in India. Humsafar became a huge hit in India and thanks to Humsafar drama, Fawad made his way to work in Bollywood.
Hamza Ali Abbasi:
Hamza Ali Abbasi is currently the most wanted actor. The drama that opened new doors for him and gave him extraordinary recognition is Piyarey Afzal. Piyarey Afzal was a great and hit drama, in which Abbasi played the role of a gangster who was madly in love.
In television dramas, Afzal’s travels became unforgettable. After this drama, his fan following also increased and after this drama ended, Afzal’s fans increased as they were looking forward to see him in another drama.
Imran Ashraf is considered to be a very versatile actor nowadays but only a few years ago he did not have the recognition and popularity like today. Although it was entertaining and proved to be an important development for the Alif Allah aur Insaan actor, but it was his character that made him a household name. The love and respect he received was such that only a few actors have received such acceptance.
Imran Ashraf’s performance in Ranjha Ranjha Kurdi made him an overnight star. Bhola’s clips went viral on social media, even those who were not watching the drama were fully aware of the character and as a result they admired Ashraf’s brilliant acting skills. Although Imran Ashraf has been in the industry for over a decade, Ranjha Ranjha Kurdi was his first play in which he played the lead role. The response he received from critics and viewers was like a dream come true.
Sana Javed has also acted in many dramas and she has learned a lot in the last few years. More than anything else, she has learned how to choose the script carefully. That is why Sana Javed has recently played the lead role in some of the best dramas. It would not be wrong to say that Pyare Afzal was the drama that made Sana Javed as famous as ever. However, it was Khani who made Sana Javed more popular than ever.
Sanam Saeed is the best actress and whatever she has chosen in the last few years has not been a wise decision. Some of her plays were completely disappointing but Zindagi Gulzaar Hai proved successful. The drama made her more famous as an actress. Most viewers from Pakistan and across the border like her offer as a discovery, a young woman whose journey won the hearts of the audience. Alia Bhatt also revealed that she was inspired by the picture presented for her film Kalank from Sanam Saeed’s play Zindagi Gulzar Hai.
Neelam Munir started acting when she was a teenager and has been a part of many standard dramas since then. Her drama Dil Moom made her more famous than before. Although the role played by the actress in the play was not perfect, Munir’s portrayal was always flawless. During her role in the play, the audience hated her and later forgave her. Neelam Munir’s performance itself increased the drama’s popularity and made it more recognizable than ever.
Ushna Shah was recognized as a serious actor when she played the role in the drama Alif Allah aur Insan. The drama itself was really popular and Shah became more popular than ever when she played the role of Rani in this drama. Her character underwent major changes and in each of these stages, Shah’s performance remained outstanding. After the play, the audience began to look forward to the actress’ next performance more than ever.
Yumna Zaidi plays every role she can. She is a natural actress who likes to play challenging roles. Although Yumna has always been a popular actress, her role and performance in the drama Piyaar Ke Sadqay made her more famous than ever. Mahjabeen’s innocence and her actions have captured the hearts of the viewers, even those who are not watching the drama are fully aware of the name Mahjabeen because the video clips of the drama instantly become viral on social media.
Hira Mani is also one of the actresses who got more fame than any other drama. Like most of the actors on the list, a single drama was a great start to something new. It proved to be a game changer for Hira, Do Bol. Hira’s performance, even the clothes she wore in Do Bol, were so famous that she herself was overwhelmed by the reaction. Her on-screen chemistry with Affan Waheed immediately impressed the audience. That’s why they were once again mistaken, which proved to be a big hit.
Aiza Khan has acted in many dramas in the last few years but there is still one drama that has made her more recognizable than others. Pyare Afzal was definitely the drama that gave Aiza Khan a new identity. It was a super hit drama serial which performed well. Since then, she has been a part of many dramas in which she has won the hearts of the audience with her lively performances. Piyare Afzal was the first tragic love story of its kind and Aiza’s role in it was unforgettable.
Aiza Khan herself considers it the best experience of her life. Even though she played the lead role in the mega hit drama serial Mere Paas Tum Ho, if any of these dramas were chosen, Aiza Khan would prefer to work with Piare Afzal’s team again. Nadeem Baig is a famous director who has performed well with many actors, it seems that Aiza is also one of these actors.
