Tv Drama Writer /Actor Umer Sharif

OMER SHARIF

Omer Sharif, (Urdu: عمر شریف, also spelled Omer Sharif) (born 19 April 1948 in the town of Liaquatabad in Karachi, Sindh) is a legendary Pakistani stand-up comedian, stage, film and television actor, writer, director and producer. His original name is Mohammed Omer, however he changed that to Omer Sharifwhen he joined the theater and later changed that to Omer Sharif.
He rose to fame due to his work on stage and his stage shows are considered among the most popular in Pakistan. He started his showbiz career from Karachi as stage performer at the age of 14.
Sharif became one of the most well known stage performers in Pakistan after his extremely popular 1985 comedy stage plays Bakra Qistoon Pay and Buddha Ghar Pe Hai. In both of them he starred along with another comedy legend Moin Akhter. Much of the success comes from the fact that he started to record his stage shows and the videocassettes were rented out in a similar fashion to movies. Yes Sir Eid, No Sir Eid, followed by Bakra Qistoon Pay were the first stage shows to come out on video.
Bakra Qistoon Pay is considered to be the show that made stage plays what they are today in Pakistan. Before the advent of Bakra Qistoon Pay majority stage shows in Pakistan used to be classy with rather poetic dialogs. After Bakra Qistoon Pay (Goat on installments) stage shows became a vibrant, majorly comical (and often gritty) part of the Pakistani culture. It has also sparked many sequels. He has also produced films like Mr. 420, Mr. Charlie, Miss Fitna, etc.
The popularity of Bakra Qistoon Pay also crossed the border into India as well and Umer Sharif became a famous name in India as well. Many of his famous dialogues were copied in Bollywood movies. Sharif is in process of completing his first Indian movie, Tum Mere Ho, as a director.

    Tv Drama Actress Maria Wasti

    Maria Wasti

    MariaW

    Maria Wasti considered it an opportunity and pure luck to have landed in such a happening business. And fortunately she did not run out of that luck not even when it came to family matters. Her family supported her decision to take on acting as a career. Her mother was away and not in town when she made her debut in the play which was to be her line of work in the future. It all happened in a jiffy. One day she was not there and when she returned she found her daughter had become a TV actor. But one must say that her mom was quite cool about it and allowed Maria to continue acting. The girl was simultaneously pursuing her Business Management degree.
    Maria was not the only one in the family who tried this form of art. Her sister had also dabbled in acting but didn’t like the experience so she gave up the idea for good; whereas, Maria had found her calling. Today, she is a beacon of style and talent. She’s come a long way since her Kallu days (another one of her memorable dramas). She’s loaded on the oomph factor something that makes her a darling with the media as well as with the audiences. It is hard work and dedication that goes in her favour, but above all it is luck that plays an important part in shaping your career or your life for that matter. It was luck, the right timing and most importantly talent that got her where she is today.
    It may seem that the glitterati live in a different world, a world of glitz and dazzle with every moment a scintillating one. But in actuality, Maria, unlike many showbiz and glamour icons, is a down-to-earth and an unassuming person. It’s her devotion and dedication that has made her one of the most sought after female actors of present times. Versatility, with a healthy dash of spiritualism and an intelligent mind describes her best. But who is she, really? That is something that has always remained somewhat of an enigma. For, whenever she gives an interview she deliberately manoeuvres the topic of her personal life and brings it to practical life.
    A true Leo, Maria does not believe in deviating from her goals; acting is her first and last love. She has not even tried to dabble in the various genres of showbiz… except production. It has been heard that the girl has been involved in some production work in recent months. A witty soul, with a highly developed sense of humour, and a Maria Wastikeen observation, she could well have landed a successful director but she refrains from taking on that particular role. She calls herself a director’s actor and has no plans of directing… not at the moment. Maybe at a later stage we might see Maria helming TV projects but that’s not on the cards; for the time being she’s content being an actor and producer. Maria likes her privacy and expects others (especially media) to respect that. She’s quite aware of the prevalent lobby system in showbusiness, but always claims to hail from no specific lobby. However, she believes that there’s nothing wrong in lobbying as long as you’re not damaging anyone’s cause. In her opinion, it exists for the reason that actors often do not want to risk working with people they do not know or are not sure of, which to quite an extent is true.
    Success, for Maria does not hold much meaning as she believes that to be successful in Pakistan is not a big deal. It’s not like it is in Hollywood. As humble as Maria tries to be, she cannot deny the fact that she is one of the most indispensable faces of showbiz. Considering the girl has sass, the girl has style it is surprising then that she has not opted for ramp modelling. And that’s because she claims to have neither the height nor the size to be a model. Self- deprecating now, wouldn’t you agree?
    Always on the move and doing projects all over the hemisphere, it’s Lahore where she heads to for relaxation. Basically she’s stationed in Lahore, but in the recent few years she had been shuttling between various places, especially Karachi and Lahore and it was then that she realised she could no longer live out of a suitcase. Hence, Karachi is as much home to her as is Lahore.
    At present, Maria is concentrating on her production ventures and equally devoting time to her acting career. She’s someone who does not believe in long term planning and takes life as it comes. So she would much rather leave it all up to fate and would wait and see what the future holds for her. With the looks of a siren, she is still a little girl at heart, who feels life is to be valued and cherished without sulking over the unpleasant moments.

    Tv Drama Actress Bindiya

    Bindiya


    She pursued her dream in television and films despite her conservative family that had a hostile attitude towards her showbiz aspirations from day one. Bindya, the bold and beautiful artiste ruled the roost throughout the 1980s and well into the ’90s. Today, she is back in Pakistan with a bang after a long hiatus of some 14 years.
    She left showbiz at the height of her career, disappearing mysteriously and not being initially missed. But as time wore on, questions were raised of her whereabouts and as all things come to pass, her memory too got lost in the annals of time. “As they say ‘I have been to London to see the queen and frightened a little mouse under the chair’! I had gone for a music show to the US, and since my son Jahanzeb was already studying there, I felt that he needed me so I stayed on. It doesn’t seem like 14 years have passed, rather it seems like I had been there just for just 14 days. Now I am back in Pakistan and ready for action,� said Bindiya when approached by Images on Sunday.
    Q. So what made you make a comeback?
    A. To tell you the truth, I had erased that part of my life from memory and broken off all contacts with the showbiz folk simply because I felt if I stayed in touch I would miss the limelight, my fans and the adulation. I was busy taking care of my son and working for US immigration as a translator in four languages — Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi and English. Then my son convinced me to pursue my real passion and sent me packing back to Pakistan. Eights months before coming here I decided to check out the media scene in Pakistan. I randomly called up TV stations as I wanted to make a comeback through PTV. The Lahore station got me in touch with Tariq Mairaj who came highly recommended. I called him up and he offered me his serial Sitarey and the role of a lifetime. Before saying yes, I requested him to send me the script. While going through the script I suddenly realised that I was going to Pakistan to do the play.
    What is your role in Sitarey?
    Sitarey is a 13-episode serial which will run on PTV towards the end of October. Mine is the lead role of an authoritative woman who runs a business empire. There are shades of grey in my character. The role is so good that I promise all my pervious work in TV, films and theatre will surpass it. The rest obviously lies with the viewers and the media feedback.
    During your recent interview in the Nadia Khan Show some felt that the questions about your personal life put forth by the host were in somewhat bad taste. What do you think?
    People have the right to say whatever they deem right, but I think Nadia has her own style and it takes a lot of guts and confidence to host a live show. Before the show, I had told her to go ahead and ask anything she wanted to. People assume that she is arrogant but I would say she is bold enough to ask personal or controversial questions, and I am bold enough to answer them.
    My first husband was a pilot and no, he was not from Iran but from Jordan. For a while we stayed in touch through a common acquaintance then we simply lost touch. I kept getting news about him. One day I heard that he was killed in a plane crash and I bid goodbye to his memory. Suddenly, after 16 years I started getting letters from him and then one day he arrived at my doorstep with his new wife and kids whereas I had waited for him and never remarried. Seeing him with his new family left me totally speechless.
    Then in the US, my son got me married to someone as he felt that that person would make me happy. But we parted ways after one-and-half years. If we cannot get along with each other doesn’t mean that we are bad people. He did not like me taking care of my son even though he has a daughter from his first marriage. It is not that we do not respect each other. As of now who knows, I may get married again if I find Mr Right.
    Are you surprised that people still remember you after so many years?
    I always thought ‘out of sight, out of mind’ as I left the field on my own terms and came back on my own. By God’s grace, I consider myself very lucky. I can see that people still love me. I guess as an actor I did do some good work.
    Is Bindiya the person really that controversial, bold and bindaas and does this image effect her as a person?
    I am honest, open-minded and I do not pigeon hole myself in my gender. I see myself as a person who is a multi-tasker and has many facets to her personality. Yes, I am bold but not in the way that I don’t care what people say. I don’t know when the image of being bindaas stuck to me.
    My family was very conservative but my parents were open-minded to a certain extent. But not enough to allow me to be in showbiz. I was alone and rumours constantly kept popping up… it was very painful. Whatever I am today is because of my mother who supported me and my hard work. I have lived my life as a caring mother. I don’t care about gossip anymore. It’s like running water that just keeps on flowing.
    After so many years what has changed in media in Pakistan?
    I see an obvious change in the scenario but the fact is that I was called to work, I just did not land up like that. I am thankful to the whole team of Sitarey as it was a pleasure working with them. As for changes, there is no rehearsal or footwork. I call the productions of today bhagum daur productions as they are quick and fast. I have tried to gel in and just go with the flow.

    What does the future hold for the long-missed and talented Bindiya?
    I am waiting to see the feedback once the serial goes on air. Also after a good role, I am looking for more good stuff to come my way. As of now, I would love to work in television or films, even if the industry has gone to the dogs and there is one film made in 10 years. I also want to do my own productions and direct, but that will take time. I am on the road to launching myself again, but working as an actor for the time being. I am here to stay as long as people give me work and their love.

    Tv Drama Actor Talat Hussain

    Talat Hussain

    Talat Hussain in insan aur admi

    Talat Hussain (also spelled as Tallat Hussein), is a Pakistani Film/Television/Stage actor. He was born in Delhi, India, His complete name is Talat Hussain Warsi. He is the son of Altaf Hussain Warsi and Shaista Begum. His family migrated to Pakistan in 1947.

    It’s said that age is not important unless you are cheese…or an actor. It is the excellence of an actor, and the audience, which keeps you going. And the countdown is still going high for Talath Hussain — an actor par excellence.

    Talat Hussain at the pinnacle of his career as we see him today, governing the single room production company ‘Studio 9′, began as a child artist from Radio Pakistan and since then there was no looking back.
    Though, never an outstanding student, he traversed the road to success to acquire instant fame. After years of hard work, he finally decided to try this hand in directing and stepped into the realm of production. “I was forced to direct a play by a friend and after that I started my own production company,” goes Talat.

    Talat Hussain in parchaiyaan

    Adding another feather in his cap, this actor turned producer aimed at improving the standard of production which has deteriorated and is certainly not what it had been in 50’s and 60’s. Providing a reason for such an outcome he said, “when you talk about quality of production, you refer to technical facilities, content of a play, the role of a director and other professionals like engineers, editors, lighting people and set designers. If you expect quality from these things then you would have to analyse the personalities of people involved which are determined by social, cultural and intellectual environment. These very people have mediocre minds which leads to weak conceptualisation. In this case, the execution of a particular concept into reality would obviously be of low standard.”

    Drama projects reality and is based on various aspects of life. It enhances the insight into various problems and relationships. Illuminating the very fact he said, “during our times, the ruling elite represented the middle class and despite being very conservative in approach, they had a very tolerant attitude and that came into play when the policies were made. The whole scenario was changed when General Zia came into power in 70’s and 80’s. The policies became very orthodox during the Martial Law and though now that orthodoxy is receding, people governing various crucial matters are not very liberal. This very attitude restricted the creative artist and his choices due to which everything is sliced and divided into pigeon holes. It is very difficult to revert back to the era of 60’s where the quality of production is concerned and to some extent the censor policies also have a role to play.”

    Talat Hussain in aansoo

    Talat believes that people themselves are responsible for such harsh censor policies. He says that the younger generation handling production is not aware of their own cultural norms and traditions. They try to imitate what they see on foreign channels which is not in total conformity with our society and so obviously the censor becomes active. Stating his own example he said, “I have directed and produced two serials of 13 and 11 episodes respectively. Out of these only two shots have been censored. I always say that give me a boy and girl. I’ll make them sit 10 feet apart and shoot that scene in such a way that it will be censored. Then I’ll make them sit next to each other and the censor will not touch the scene.” He believes that the way a certain relationship is projected decides whether it should be censored or not. The people exercising power find normal behaviour offensive. “They belong to the rural set up and their social environment is completely opposite to the urban culture,” he said, “we make plays based on urban lines which they might find indecent and so people sitting in the parliament raise hue and cry.”
    Apart from the policies, rampant commercialism and lack of workaholic professionals is also responsible for deteriorating quality of production. Earning quick bucks is the ulterior motive of the fresh blood coming in this field

    “Our whole society has become commercial now,” he confided, “the set designers are more concerned about money, actors about glamour and directors about making a hit play and when you have to sell everything, the norms and values take a back seat.” Though, he thinks that his generation worked with passion and the priorities of the young budding actors are different. He feels that Yasir Akhtar, Nabeel and Shabbir Jan have what it takes to be good actors placing Shabbir slightly above the rest. “Shabbir has achieved that point where he can be recognised as a mature actor where as the others are still in the making.”
    Talat Hussain has worked in five western productions and found them well organised technically competent and very committed to their work. He thoroughly enjoyed working in them. “It was wonderful working with professional actors,” he expressed, reminiscing his experience in the movie Jinnah “despite being so well known, they were very down to earth. Unlike our directors, they respect the actors working for them and do not take them for granted.”

    He admits that there aren’t any training grounds for aspiring directors, actors and behind the scene technicians, but still he considers our dramas much better than those of India. Denouncing those who compare both, he vehemently expressed his views, “there are people who say that Indian drama is better than ours. There isn’t any comparison between the two. Their genius is in music. If you look at drama as a genre, the way it exists, it originated from Greece. If Indian drama had energy, vigour and force, it would have over shadowed Greek drama. Indian drama does exist but it is not their genius.”
    Being one of the few well read performers, his priorities are to produce the best possible serials. “I am not interested in any kind of competition,” he said while adding, “I don’t want to surpass anyone. I have always tried to produce a product with a 100 per cent attention to make it the best.” He refused to reveal any immediate future plans but is thinking of making a film.
    An internationally acclaimed outstanding performer, he aspires to prove his mettle in production as well and give something outstanding and different to the viewers.
    Talat Hussain started his career from PTV in 1967. His first television play was Arjumand. In 1972, he moved to England, and joined the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).

He was also worked for BBC Radio in play Crown Coat.

    Talat has worked in several foreign films and television drama serials and long plays. He worked in some episodes of Channel Four’s television serial Traffik.

    Tv Drama Actor Shakeel ( Yusuf Kamal )


    Shakeel


    Shakeel as Uncle Urfi
    Shakeel as Uncle Urfi
    Yusuf Kamal was born on 29th May 1938, in Bhopal, India, to a highly enlightened family. He shared the big world with his two younger brothers and a sister. Yusuf received his primary education in an English medium school, in the pre-partitioned India. Additionally, he also acquired education in a French missionary school in India.
    Yusuf migrated to Karachi, Pakistan, along with his family in 1952. Young Yusuf had a flair for acting since his childhood. During his school days in Karachi, Yusuf regularly participated in the extra curricular activities. Soon after graduation, Yusuf made his presence felt in stage plays as well.
    Yusuf Kamal changed his name to Shakeel and debuted in the 1966 film, Honehar Cast included Shakeel- Waheed Murad- Rukhsana- Tarannum- Kamal Irani. For Shakeel, the film Honehar was a challenge he met with ferocious gusto.
    Shakeel first television play was Naya Raasta, which was penned by Hasina Moin and telecast from Karachi television in 1971.
    Essentially, Shakeel is a natural actor, who applies himself earnestly as a professional duty. Karachi television presented special Eid-ul-fitr play Happy Eid, in the 1970s. Shakeel and Neelofar Abbasi, formerly known as Neelofar Aleem, came up with resplendent artistry and made Happy Eid, a memorable play. In the final moments of the play, Shakeel wishes Happy Eid, to Neelofar and she greets him with Eid Mubarak They looked right at each other and smiled. It was quite a smile.
    The will to succeed is part of the Pakistani culture. Shakeel and Neelofar Abbasi teamed up again in Haseena Moin highly successful Karachi television drama serial, Shehzori.
    You can do a world of good for yourself if you keep a steady course.
    The above statement rings too true to Shakeel. Dwelling on Shakeel immense artistic prowess, Uncle urfi,could be ranked among the three greatest drama serials in Shakeel forty-year eventful career. Cast included Shakeel in the title role of Uncle urfi, Shehla Ahmed as Beena, Qurban Jeelani as Shaheed bhai, Azra Sherwani as Ghazi, Jamshed Ansari as Hasnat bhai.
    As the story goes, Shakeel, who is super-smartly dubbed as Uncle urfi, takes interest in Beena. In reality, uncle urfi was desirous to make Beena happy. Logically, urfi should have taken Beena into confidence before doing her a favor. Instead, he kept her in the dark. The final moments of the last episode are fraught with pain and pathos.
    Urfi tells Beena with certitude, hamari shadi hogi to sara zamana deikhey ga. to which poor Beena replies, kuchh shadiyaan dil kay weerano mein bhi to ho jaati hain, sirif khuda gawah hota hai.
    The emotionally charged conclusion of  Uncle urfi, was so unexpected that literally nobody was prepared for it. Indeed, Haseena Moin had instilled so much despair in its dialogues that thirty-two years later, it still stands as a classic in its bittersweet illustration of the unbreakable bond of family.
    Further, Shakeel achieved enduring fame in Haseena Moin mega hit drama serial,Un kahi.Cast included Shakeel as Taimur, Shehnaz Sheikh as Sana Murad, Javed Sheikh as Faraz, Saleem Nasir as Sheheryar, Jamshed Ansari as Timmi.
    Initially, Taimur did not tolerated Sana Murad demeanor. But Taimur father-in-law, played by Qazi Wajid, suggests, Taimur, logoan kay chehray parha karo, ye duniya ki sub say dil chasp kitaab hotay hain. That changed Taimur perception of Sana Murad and he managed to see the sincere girl behind the confused Sana Murad.
    Most importantly, Shakeel numerous roles always heighten the sweetness of living. Uroosa, is another popular television drama serial of Shakeel. Cast includes Shakeel- Ghazala Kaifi- Adnan Siddiqui- Mishi Khan.
    As the story unfolds, Shakeel divorced his first wife, Ghazala Kaifi. Mishi Khan, who plays the title role of Uroosa, happens to be the daughter of Shakeel from his first wife, Ghazala Kaifi. Uroosa, wins everyone heart through her etiquettes. She weds Adnan Siddiqui, who lives next door.
    All the Pakistani television drama serials deal very well with Shakeel, who plays them splendidly. Shakeel is also famous for his social services. He was proactive during the recent earthquake in Pakistan. Likewise, he takes active participation in anti smoking campaign. Furthermore, Shakeel conferred awards to the winners in the most recent Pakistani television award ceremony held in Karachi.
    In recognition of his enormous contribution to the show business, Shakeel won the pride of performance award in 1992. Shakeel is a long, healthy, prosperous life, and a life really well lived.
    The other day, Shakeel attended a function. Tens of hundreds of devoted admirers gathered around Shakeel and said, hum Aap ka yaad gaar tareen kirdaar, uncle urfi, kabhi na bhool payein gey.
    Shakeel replied, Thank you and good cheer to all. Then slowly he walked away and soon vanished into the crowd.

    Tv Drama Actor Humayun Saeed

    Humayun Saeed


    Humayun was born into an enlightened family on July 27, 1971, in Karachi. Being the eldest amongst five brothers, his parents expected a lot from him.As a child, he had a craze for movies. His favorite past time was to stand in front of a mirror and to fantasize being a film actor. Though initially he seemed an ordinary kid, his zeal for acting set him apart from other children. Such focused determination took that boy where he wanted to go-to the top. In times due course, he successfully completed a bachelor of commerce degree. Humayun stepped into the practical life as a production manager in a garment factory in Karachi. He stayed there from 1991- 1995. By sheer determination, he drove himself forward. As mentioned earlier, Humayun demonstrated an unusual aptitude for show business from his earlier days. From 1995 onwards, he associated himself with Pakistani television. First he appeared as an artist in numerous television plays and drama serials. Later, he started his own production, known as H.S. Production. Side by side, Humayun also participated in modeling and fashion designing. Additionally, he also made his presence felt in the ‘Dalda’ advertisement. If he has spared anything, then it must be imaginative enough to venture beyond his expertise. That scenario is highly unlikely. Considering Humayun’s enormous acting potential, brilliance and a very high I.Q. A novice in television, Humayun was eager to learn and quickly mastered the techniques. The first television play in which Humayun worked as an artist, was ‘Ye Jahan’. He was famous for his looks, his etiquette and above all, for his impressive voice. The masterpieces began to flow, as they would over several years. He received another boost in public awareness from more plays like ‘Farz Aik Qarz’, ‘Lahu say kar kay wuzu’ and ‘Waqt’.
