Tv Drama Actor Hassam Qazi

Hassam Qazi

Hassam Qazi was different in many ways. As an Accounts teacher, he wanted to see his students as meticulous accountants. On the other hand, Hassam, with his suave personality, had a natural flair for acting. I don't have much time, so I can't afford to delay anything,i was one of his pet sentences. Did he have a premonition of what was to happend

Hassam was one of the few actors from PTV Quetta centre who are well-educated. He was a linguist, as apart from his mother tongue, Balochi, he had very good command over other local languages such as Pushto, Brahvi and Punjabi, besides English and Urdu. He was also a man of integrity.

During his student days, he joined Radio Pakistan, Quetta, as a Balochi news reader. He continued the job till he completed his education and later joined the education department as a lecturer in commerce. In the meantime, he teamed up with actor Jamal Shah to work in theatre.

After his debut in local language plays, Hassam was given a leading role in the famous PTV Quetta centre serial, Chaon, in 1986. Producer Kazim Pasha handpicked him for the role and Hassam did not disappoint.

Chaon was the turning point in Hassam is showbiz career and bigger and better offers followed. He again signed the Urdu drama, Sangchoor, but it was not till Marvi that Hassam Qazi really proved his mettle and his fan-following increased manifold.

He worked in countless plays and serials and earned laurels in plays depicting Baloch history, such as Chakar-i-Azam and Mehrab Khan. Hassam left a lasting impression on viewers and his style and sublimity will always be fondly remembered.

Zahir Lehri, Liaquat Changezi, Zafar Meraj and Hassam Qazi by MACADAM_116
Hassam Qazi dies in Karachi after suffering a massive heart attack. the news spread like the proverbial wild fire throughout the country on the evening of July 3. Hassam had moved to Karachi from Quetta to honour his showbiz commitments. According to sources close to the family, he was only 43 at the time of his death.
Hassam Qazi leaves behind a widow, two young daughters and a minor son.


Hassam Qaz is memory will always be cherished by his many fans. Here, some of his closest showbiz peers recollect their memories of the artist and the person.

Jamal Shah: Hassam was a very sensitive person, a true artist who proved his worth and class whenever he got the chance. Hassam and I remained together for some time when I started theatre in 1985, during our time at the Balochistan University. He was talented and hardworking, and well aware of his surroundings. Hassam was a good friend and a very good performer. The country has lost a versatile artist and a sensitive person who was always eager to help others.

Ayub Khosa: It feels like I have lost a brother. We were the best of friends and very close to each other. I always used to tell Hassam to be careful of friends who would use him. I would find him worrying about his brothers, friends and relatives, talking about their problems and trying to find solutions. I know many people who did not repay his kindness and who took undue advantage of him.

He was man of integrity who always preferred hard work and never threw down his arms. As far as his talent is concerned, he was a great artist who reached the top of his profession through honesty and dedication. Though death is unavoidable, Hassam?s was untimely.

Asal Din Khan: Hassam Qazi was a friend is friend. He was a simple, kind-hearted, beautiful person who was always ready to help others. Though he was a successful artist, he was never arrogant. The vacuum created by his death can never be filled for his family, friends and fans. We will always remember him with love and respect, as such people always remain in the hearts of those who knew them.

Tv Drama Actor Nadeem



He may have made his debut as Pakistan’s answer to Dilip Kumar but Mirza Nazeer Baig Mughal has evolved from a super-hit actor into a superstar during his 43-year career. The journey that began with Chakori in 1967 is still going strong. Not only has Nadeem outlived his contemporaries but also inspired generations with his charismatic personality and professional ethics.

Born on 19th July, 1941, in Madras (now Chennai), India, to a family with no links to showbiz, he made his debut in Chakori when the intended hero of the film, Azeem, quit days before shooting was to commence. He not only impressed the audience with his acting skills and dashing looks but also belied critics who didn’t consider him a threat in the beginning.

With countless hits to back him, Nadeem achieved iconic status in the ’70s and gave a hard time to Waheed Murad, Mohammad Ali and Shahid during the decade that saw him churn out hits with directors Pervez Malik, Nazrul Islam, S. Suleman and many others.

He has so far worked in 200-plus films since Chakori. Although he hasn’t tried his hand at direction but has been active on the scene for the past 43 years, winning fans all over the world and all awards imaginable. And if you think you know it all about this great actor, go through the trivia below and know more about Nadeem the actor, singer, producer and the man behind the numerous cinematic hits.

1. We all know Nadeem sang the duet Kahan ho tumko dhoondh rahi hain… with Firdousi Begum besides many other hits during his film career. But do you know he sang one song on an actor other than himself? Who and what was it?

2. In how many films did superstars Waheed Murad, Mohammad Ali and Nadeem act together?

3. Has he worked in an Indian film?

4. Has Nadeem ever played a negative role in his illustrious career?

5. Not many actors have played triple roles in a film during their careers. Is Nadeem one of the actors who have done so?

6. What was the ‘odd thing’ about the leading ladies in Nadeem’s debut TV serial Bisaat, directed by Ghazanfar Ali in 2000?

7. Playboy, Ishq Ishq, Inteha and Koi Tujh Sa Kahan. What do these films have in common?

8. Nadeem has never directed a film, but has he produced any?

9. There was a vast difference in Nadeem’s hairstyles during the ’70s and then again in the ’80s. Which was the first film in which he attempted his post-80s hairstyle?

10. What is the significance of films such as Sangdil, Anari and Talaash in Nadeem’s career?

1. The actor was Mohammad Qavi Khan and the film was Mr Buddho (1973), in which Nadeem sang the song, Kitne Ashq Piye Hain Phir Bhi Zinda Hoon, with the late playback singers Mala and Ahmed Rushdi lending their vocals for Deeba and Rangeela, respectively;

2. Three. Their first film together was Phool Mere Gulshan Ka (1974) followed by Shama (1974) and Jab Jab Phool Khile (1975). Nadeem also has the distinction of working with great artistes including Santosh Kumar, Darpan, Alauddin, Kamal, Shahid, David, Shashi Kapoor and Raj Babbar during his career;

3. Nadeem played the angry young man Tony in Bollywood’s Doordesh in 1983, where he was pitted against Bangladeshi actress Babita and Indian actors Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Parveen Babi, Raj Babbar and David. The film was directed by Ambrish Sangal and was by the Canadian Production house Friends Film International;

4. His role in the multi-starrer Shama (1974) had shades of grey, but in Samaj and Suhaag he played a full-throttle villain. Mohammad Ali was the good guy in Samaj whereas Zia Mohyuddin played the bespectacled hero in Suhaag;

5. Yes, he has. In fact he was the first actor in Pakistan to do so. He played three roles simultaneously in Jaltay Sooraj Kay Neechay which was released in 1971, and was produced by Afzaal Chaudhry in the then East Pakistan;
6. Both the leading ladies — Aaminah Haq and Nosheen Tariq — were born after Nadeem made his big screen debut in Chakori (1967). Yet he seemed at ease against the youngsters, fitting in as the leading man;

7. Nadeem is the only actor in Pakistan to work with four female directors who have also been his co-stars. The directors of the first three films — Shamim Ara, Sangeeta and Samina Peerzada — on numerous occasions played Nadeem’s leading ladies during his career. Shamim Ara in Parai Aag and Suhaag, Sangeeta in countless flicks including Anari and Mutthi Bhar Chawal and Samina Peerzada in Bazaar-i-Husn and Bulandi. The director of the last flick in the list — Reema Khan — has worked with Nadeem in over a dozen films mostly as his daughter or the son’s love interest;

8. Not one but two. Mitti Kay Putlay (1974) was his first movie as a producer whereas the Punjabi film Mukhra (1988) once again saw him in the role of the producer;

9. Many believe that Nazrul Islam’s Bandish was the first film in which Nadeem changed his hairstyle, which is incorrect. Pervez Malik’s Pakeeza (1979) was the first flick in which he experimented with his hair. When his character loses his memory, his hairstyle changes… and when he regains his memory it’s back to the ’70s hairdo;

10. Nadeem has worked in not one but three films with the same name. While the first Anari and Sangdil were black and white flicks, and the others were in colour, the first Talash was released in 1976 and the other one a decade later. Not only were the stories of all these flicks different but also the directors.

Tv Drama Writer Abdul Qadir Junejo

Born: November 1, 1945
Education: MA in sociology from Sindh University
Published work: Watoon, Ratyoon Ain Rol(1973); Shikliyoon (1979); Weender Wahi Lahandar Sijj (1984); Wada Adeeb Wadyoon Galhyoon (1984);Sono Roop Sijj (1986); Everest te Charhai (1987); Kursi (1998); Chho Chha Ain Keein (1999); Khat bin Adeeban Ja (1999); Dar Dar ja Musafir (2001); Wan Wan Jee Kathiee (2002).
Dramas: Six drama serials in Sindhi, 13 serials in Urdu including “Deewarein”, “Karwaan”, “Choti si Duniya”, “Seerhian”, “Dukh Sukh”, “Paranda”, “Dhool” and “Dararein”
Positions held: Director Institute of Sindhology Jamshoro (1988-93) Now serving as Additional Director at ISJ.
Awards: President’s Pride of Performance (1989). PTV Awards for best writer in 1983 and 1985
He is a man of folk wisdom and a winner of the President’s Pride of Performance award. He is also an outstanding drama writer, translator and an avid reader. He is Abdul Qadir Junejo, the popular Sindhi media icon.
Born in Tharparkar, Junejo is a versatile author. It is ironic how as a child he wanted to be a dacoit but ended up being the prolific scriptwriter of “Deewarein” — a drama serial on PTV that became an instant hit. “Being a Thari is what motivated me to produce the kind of work that I do. I acquired my diction and style of writing from Thar’s vibrant folklore,” he explains. Whether it’s drama, a short story or an article, Thar remains the focal point in his writings. Junejo’s visualization of Thar is so fascinating that it has made him popular among various sections of people. Junejo now is on his way to completing his first novel So Dess Musafir Munhinjo Re, which he says covers the history, geography, folk tales and traditions of Thar.
Besides, the region has also been a subject of his anthropological studies, apparent in the book Dar Dar ja Musafir, which provides a detailed account of the life and culture of the people living there. It also has information about nomadic tribes, such as the Jogis, Kabootras, Koochras, Rebaries and Balas, and contains articles about classical characters, ways of communication and the wildlife of the region. In one of his articles, he writes about the signs and symptoms which indicate rain, and discusses how snakes climb on trees and how camels, peacocks and other creatures react when it is about to rain.
He is something of an iconoclast when it comes to his craft and style. Junejo does not like receiving undue acclaim. When a notable Sindhi critic praised his stories, he quit writing them. “They thought, in my stories only the language is the grey matter. Such things made me give it up,” he protests. However, Junejo has three short story books to his credit — Watoon, Ratyoon Ain Rol, Weendar Wahi Lahandar Sijj, and Sono Roop Sijj — published in 1973, 1984 and 1986 respectively.
Although he is influenced by several writers, his writing style stands out to this day. Among them is the veteran scholar Mohammed Ibrahim Joyo, under whose shadow, Junejo bloomed as a writer and as translator. In fact, he has translated not only fiction, but also political commentaries as well as historical classics. Everest te Charhai, Chho Chha ain Keein and Wan Wan jee Kaathee are his collections of translations. From William Faulkner to Arundhati Roy, Junejo has introduced many renowned writers to Sindhi readers.
Drama is Junejo’s forte and over the years, he has written some memorable serials for PTV and promoted Sindhi as a language. Some of his drama serials include “Karwaan”, “Choti si Duniya”, “Seerhian”, “Dukh Sukh”, “Paranda”, “Dhool” and “Dararein”.
As far as his dramatic vision is concerned, Junejo has always tried to present an objective picture. His waderas and dacoits are bilateral. A wadera in Junejo’s realm is not a cruel monster, but a Sindhi man with many demerits, whereas people turned into dacoits because they had been victimized. Notorious characters are not just sinners, but have also been depicted as human beings.
It is very difficult to find a person in the Sindhi literary circles whose powers of observation are as strong as that of Junejo. He remains distinct because his work is not limited to his native land. Currently, he is writing dramas for some TV channels, while also penning articles in Sindhi. He is also planning to write an autobiography. Indeed, this larger than life writer is the salt of the earth of Sindh.

Tv Drama Actress Mahnoor Baloch

Mahnoor Baloch

Mahnoor Baloch is enormously endowed with artistic talents and backs it up by really being prepared for the challenges. She is a good friend with a beautiful smile. You first notice her beauty, which is of the striking variety; the kind that makes heads turn.
There is no substitute for excellence, not even success. The above proverb holds true to model-actress-director-producer, Mahnoor Baloch. A precious link exists between acting generations. This link is which enables the human spirit to soar when comparing artists over the years. One such artist is Mahnoor Baloch. Below is a moving tribute to her courage-and the extraordinary power of love, understanding and devotion.
As a young girl, Mahnoor showed keen interest in human behavior. Perhaps, Mahnoor wore the smile of an innocent, little girl as she said that she wanted to become a psychiatrist. But Mahnoor was destined to be an artist. That smile, those eyes, they are really something, which boldly but complacently blend to make her the center of all eyes and lenses. It is the stuff of which the dreams are made of.
Mahnoor claimed her own fame before turning twenty in the modeling world. Later, she appeared in Pakistani television commercials as well. Mahnoor's first stab at acting was in Pakistani televisions mega hit drama serial, 'Marvi', directed by Sultana Siddiqui, commonly known as 'Aapi.' Writer, Noor-ul-Huda Shah, cast included Mahnoor, Ghazal Siddiqui, Badar Khalil, and Hussain Qazi. The story revolves around a village girl, 'Marvi'. Mahnoor played the friend of 'Marvi.' It was a touching story deftly related to the public.

Quickly thereafter, Mahnoor's identity as a performer began to emerge. Mahnoor and her teammates worked together as conceptual artists for the television.

Though drama serial 'Marvi' marked the debut of Mahnoor as a television artist. She attained stardom with her role in the drama serial 'Doosra Aasmaan', which was telecast from Pakistani television in 1993-94. In 'Doosra Aasmaan', Mahnoor was dubbed as Abid Ali's daughter who, in turn, lived and made a fortune in Dubai. Cast included Mahnoor, Abid Ali, Asad, and Sami Sani.
In her real life, Mahnoor liked Hamid Siddiqui, happened to be the son of her father's friend. Their families knew each other for years. In fact, both Mahnoor and Hamid grew up together. They remained steadfast friends through thick and thin.
Long story short, Mahnoor married Hamid with their parent's consent and blessings. Mahnoor was in her sixteenth year at the time of marriage, while Hamid was seventeen years of age at the time. By the grace of God, both Mahnoor and Hamid have had a blissful married life for the past twenty years. In a recent interview Mahnoor said that 'we are the golden couple. Everything good has been showered on us.
Perhaps, they must have understood and implemented the saying below in their practical life: 'I do not want to change you; you know what is best for you, much better than I. I do not want you to change me, I want you to accept me and respect me the way I am. In this way, we can build a strong relationship, based on reality, rather than a dream.'
Reverting to her show business career, Mahnoor became the most enchanting artist of the 1990s and she continues to make her presence felt forcefully to date. Additionally, her genius in succeeding is largely one of character-patience, self-discipline, rationality and inner resolve.

Mahnoor's acting is fraught with reality. The humane element is always present in her celluloid persona. That believability-and humanity-was powerfully manifested in the 1997 super hit television drama serial, 'Ye zindigi.' Director, Sultana Siddiqui, cast included Mahnoor, Noman Aijaz, and Humayun Saeed.
It is an enthralling tale of deception and dejection. From this, and a rarely perfected talent of wit, Mahnoor brings her interesting character 'Soha', not only to life, but also into the hearts of millions of dedicated viewers. Background song in Mehnaz's lilting voice 'Zindigi kay sub lamhay yaad gaar hotay hain' became uproariously popular. Most importantly, the last episode of 'Ye zindigi' is intent on draining our tear ducts.
Mahnoor's unique ability is that she has one of the most astonishing faces on the small screen. Expressions drift over it like mist. How, in the entertainment industry abounding in gifted performers, does Mahnoor stand in a category unto herself? Well, she is a talent machine. That is what she was born to be. Moreover, the real Mahnoor and the reel Mahnoor are very much alike, replete with life, energy and acting.

In the highly successful drama serial, 'Chandni Raatain', Mahnoor's acting is almost gushing in its admiration. While her vivid persona upholds the sentimentality depicted in the play. In 'Chandni Raatain' as the story goes; Javed Sheikh had no children from his first wife. Thus, he marries 'Maha', played by Mahnoor, who becomes his second wife. The play is simultaneously praiseworthy and heartbreaking. To talk of Mahnoor is to put applause on paper. Her reputation for quality work stands so high, that almost every fan admires her wisdom and judgment as a performer. It strengthens her faith in her own resourcefulness. In an extraordinarily busy life, Mahnoor has it all, or nearly so. On the personal side, Mahnoor has poured all her talents into her role as mother to a fourteen-year-old gorgeous daughter. Today, as her teenage girl prepares to leave the nest, her mom has begun to redefine herself. As always, Mahnoor's motivation was clear and resolute in her directional debut 'Lamhay' in January 2000. Producer-director, Mahnoor, writer, Salman Wajih Hasan, cast included Mahnoor, Noman Aijaz, Shahzad Roy, and Nighat Chaudhry. In 'Lamhay', Mahnoor played the role of Shahzad Roy's mother. The poor girl, 'Fizza', from Bangladesh, smartly dubbed by Mahnoor, did the trick. 'Lamhay' is a play of individual sensibilities. Dwelling on her plus points, Mahnoor's independence of mind and her ability to focus on her work also serve her well in her show business career. Confidence in one's own judgment, she realized early on, is what matters most. Mahnoor's presentation always carries with it a peculiar vividness that is exclusively her own. Included in the list of illustrious plays is 'Pathjhar ki chaaon' in the year 2000, directed by Mahnoor. It is an intricate story about a mother and her daughter. Mahnoor played the role of the eldest daughter. Regarding her charismatic figure, the discerning viewers fall passionately in love with her at first sight. From her earlier days in working life, Mahnoor has learnt a lot, and forgotten nothing. Most of all, Mahnoor has been glorified like no other artist in modern times. The intoxication of glory, Oh! How uplifted she would be! Mahnoor's intense and interesting performance in the romantic comedy drama 'Kabhi kabhi pyar mein' in August 2001 brought more laurels to her. Director, Afreen Baig, writer, Shahid Kazmi, cast included Mahnoor, Humayun Saeed and Adnan Siddiqui. The way 'Kabhi kabhi pyar mein' was romanticized is a feat in modern Pakistani television direction. This also proves the fact that Pakistani television crew are hard at work on sophisticated craft. Confident, amiable and cute, Mahnoor is an artist who echoes a quality most seem to have forgotten-being real. This woman of individualism continues to exert a peculiar fascination through her acting and her direction. Day after day, Mahnoor receives critical appreciation about her accomplishment. She keeps glued to the pursuit. Sagacious as she is, Mahnoor's performance was outstanding in the television play 'Sila.' Directed by Misbah Khalid, cast included Mahnoor, Faraz Maqsood, Adnan Siddiqui and Amina Haq. The story revolves around a college student, 'Sila', played by Mahnoor. Mahnoor's performance in the lead role vaulted her to fame. Mahnoor is not just another artist. She holds a singular place in our heart, and this presence never leaves. Perhaps, more than any other artist of her time, Mahnoor listens to the heartbeat of her admirers. Like every sensible person, Mahnoor also endorses the view that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. It is time to recognize that we have been wasting far too many good ones. Remarkable people like Mahnoor inspired some of our favorite television plays. 'Unhoni' is one of them. Cast included, Mahnoor, Shakeel and Humayun Saeed. In the drama serial 'Unhoni' Mahnoor works for Shakeel's organization. She leaves the job when she learns that Shakeel intends to marry her. Preferring quality to quantity, that is, a little less, a little better, Mahnoor only opts for selected television plays. Further, nurtured by hard work, Mahnoor spurs the younger generation to better their world. As for her performance, Mahnoor's dialogues has her trademark wit and rhythm, her outlook infallible, she possesses, to guess right, instinct experience, and recollection; she sees true, compares swiftly and understands intuitively. Mahnoor increasingly found opportunities to show her dramatic abilities, notably in the stage show 'Hai koi hum jaisa.' Hosted by Fakhar-e-Alam, Mahnoor and Atiqa Odho. The show honors the Pakistani cricket team and singers like Jawad Ahmed and Ali Azmat. Mahnoor's family lives in the U.S.A. While her husband's family resides in Canada. Hence, Mahnoor, too, has settled down in Canada. Lately, Mahnoor enrolled in the film school of Toronto and completed a 15-month course in filmmaking. Paradise has been relocated to Toronto! Soon, she went back to Pakistan and during an activity-packed trip, Mahnoor produced a fabulous drama serial, 'Shiddat', in which she used some of the techniques she picked up from her Toronto's film school as well. Most definitely, we regard Mahnoor not only as the foremost entertainer but as one of the pillars of Pakistani television, a delightful companion to the life of the twenty-first century Pakistan and an endlessly fascinating personality in her own right. As for her future aspirations, Mahnoor is more than up to the challenge. Love and wisdom knows no boundaries. With the passage of time, Mahnoor has earned love and respect from her loyal fans. She has developed enduring friendship with her family and her friends as well. In those bonds are the strands of love, of kindness, of physical and spiritual healing. They are the strands of life itself. In a way so subtle, so gentle, so loving, Mahnoor has given us the most precious gift that could be bestowed to her adorers. It is the gift of a free and loving heart.

Tv Drama Actress Sonya Jehan

Sonya Jehan


Sonya Jehan is radiant. The world knows her as a half-Pakistani Indian actress and we are quite happy with rights on her being just that. Born as the legendary Madam Noor Jehan’s granddaughter to a Pakistani father (Akbar Rizvi) and French mother (Florence Villier), she is now married to an Indian banker (Vivek Narain) and is shifting homes from Delhi to Mumbai as we speak.

And of all the traits she carries in her genes — fame, France, a penchant for performance, a love for food and simple elegance — the Pakistani gene is the most dormant. She speaks Urdu, but often chooses not to and when English and French roll off her tongue much more easily, you could never guess that she was anything but French.

The give-away, if any, is her offhand sense of style, which lends her originality beyond Noor Jehan’s opulence and her mother’s French chic. These are the two women — both of whom have incredible individual identities — who have had the maximum influence on her personality but Sonya has emerged very much her own person.

She has a deep, melodic voice that is trained to sing like Daado (as she fondly calls Noor Jehan) and she has a love for food like her mother (who lives in Karachi and owns the only French restaurant in town). Sonya dabbles in films and dreams of opening her own restaurant in India one day. But she isn’t terribly committed to any one profession. She is someone very comfortable in her own skin, apparent as she walked out to greet us in worn out denims, Kohlapuri chappals and a brown shawl to shield her against the unexpected Karachi chill.

“I was supposed to be here for only a day,” Sonya explained her lack of clothes (for a wedding and unexpected shoot) with a warm smile. She was in Karachi for only a day or two as she waited for a work permit. Despite having a French passport, her Pakistani lineage requires her to have a permit if she is to act in a Bollywood film. She had been cast in the lead role opposite Abhishek Bachchan for an upcoming action thriller, Crooked.

Not that her life was hanging by a thread in anticipation. Sonya was distressed as she realised that she probably wouldn’t get the visa in time for the opening shoot (which was the next day) but she managed to brush it off with nonchalance. She was more concerned about getting back home to her two-year-old daughter, Noor, now the third and perhaps most influential female in Sonya’s life. How is she, I asked. “Aah, she’s perfect,” came the reply with a grin that comes only to a doting mother in love.

While her little one is her pride and joy, her next big budget venture promises to take her professional profile to new heights. She plays a small but significant role in Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan (which released worldwide this Friday), alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.

Sonya plays Rizwan Khan’s sister-in-law, an American Muslim woman teaching at a university in the USA. A far cry from her last two roles — as the feisty Ratanbala in Khoya Khoya Chand (2007) and the glamorous Mumtaz Mahal in Taj Mahal (2005) — this role has her covered up in a hijab. It appears to play to a stereotype while trying to break the stereotype simultaneously. But despite the de-glossed character, this may be her big Bollywood breakthrough. And then there is the experience of working alongside Shah Rukh and Kajol.

“It was amazing, what more can I say?” she smiled. “Shah Rukh is approachable and incredibly humble. He talks to everyone on the set, from the doorkeeper to the director. My first shot was with him and I was nervous because, well, he’s Shah Rukh Khan. But he has a knack of putting everyone at ease within minutes. He immediately welcomed me and told me that he was a big fan of my grandmother. Shah Rukh is a director at heart and sort of takes things in control. Kajol is such a superb actor and they both have incredible presence and input on the sets. It was quite an experience.”

How did she land the role? Did she feel being half-Pakistani played its part in chance as it gave her character a third, realistic dimension?

“I don’t think the casting had anything to do with my being Pakistani. I auditioned for the role. Plus, the film is not about terrorism as most people believe,” she clarified, though most people must have watched it by now. “It is primarily a love story that throws some light on the lives of Muslims post-9/11.”

Sonya was in India during the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai city. Did she feel stigmatised at that time?

“Well, I wasn’t shouting my Pakistani lineage from a rooftop,” she said. “It was traumatising for me personally because people I knew died in those attacks on the Taj. I think that we all look at certain kinds of Muslims all over the world with suspicion now; I know I do when I’m in London. It’s the natural fallout of what’s been happening. But that isn’t the epicentre of the film.”

She added that more than making it big in films, she would like to play a role in bringing peace in the subcontinent, between India and Pakistan. She would love to be part of the collaborative efforts being made to create creative links between both countries.

So far none of the Pakistani actors who have set foot in Bollywood — Meera, Javed Sheikh and Humayun Saeed — have really made their mark and one wonders whether Sonya will manage to make a difference. Her first two films didn’t do too well but MNIK promises to be a box-office hit, if nothing else.

“I don’t know whether this will be a breakthrough in my career because that’s not what I’m thinking when I sign a film,” she responded. “I sign it for the story, the script and the overall experience it’ll bring me. That said, of course I’m hoping for the film to do well and for people to appreciate my work. I’m just not looking to be the next big star,” she concluded with a laugh.

Sonya carries Noor Jehan’s flair for drama but lacks the salt that Noor Jehan had, and that is perhaps imperative to any successful Bollywood heroine, even today. Sonya Jehan is undeniably beautiful but possibly too westernised in her looks to appeal to a local, mass audience. But then again, Bollywood is at the crossroads of change and this may be the best time for her to cut into it. She has trained in classical Indian dance as well as classical singing. She says she can sound a lot like her grandmother. And she has the one rain dance (from Khoya Khoya Chand) to prove that she has what it takes, if masala is what Bollywood is looking for.

A week after returning to India, Sonya called to confirm that she was unable to get the work permit and had lost her Crooked role to Kangana Ranaut.

“It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t able to do the film but now that I’m in Bombay there will be much more to do. There will be more opportunities and I will be able to juggle them better with motherhood,” she said. “But I’m not thinking of films right now. I’ve just landed in Bombay and I’m in a cab, apartment hunting. I think settling down is going to be the most important thing in my life for a while.

Tv Drama Actress Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa

“Why is There Negative Publicity About My Role?”

AGHAST IS THE LOOK on Mona Lisa’s face, when you talk to her regarding why her Indian film, Kajra Re is is being considered a real no-no in local film circles! She says when she was cast in the film by Pooja Bhatt, she hardly knew anything about the communal side of this film.
“It’s all blown out of proportion,” the delicate and easy-going girl tells you, when you mention this controversy. “I can’t understand why there is so much negative publicity about my role, regarding Kajra Re. When I was told about the role by Pooja, she basically narrated a story that sympathized with the dancing girls at the bazaar. There was no talk of the religious side, or the communal aspect. Neither is there any need to make an issue out of it,” Mona said tongue-in-cheek.
But, it’s not actually the censors, but Suhail Khan, the famous distributor-film-maker, who says that he won’t release Kajra Re in Pakistan. He says that he doesn’t think it proper that such a subject should be risked in this country, where it will certainly create a bad taste in the mouth of the people, and it would never do well.
But Mona shakes her head on hearing the logic. “I am not sure if this is realistic,” Mona says matter-of-factly. “The story is basically about the tragic fact that the dancing girls are never approached by good family men. Pooja shows that such women are also humans, and they also wait for their Prince Charming. I play just such a girl, who is finally given protection, and then married to a Hindu boy. But, that is at the end, and throughout the film, there’s no such issue discussed. Let’s face it, I am an actress, and if I have a good role, then such itsy bitsy facts have to be ignored.”
Well, Mona may be right. The fact is that we screened just such a film in Pakistan, in early 2001, called Tere Pyar Mein, which had Zara Sheikh and Shaan. It had a Muslim Pakistani boy, played by Shaan, who loves a Sikh Indian girl, played by Zara. The film was well-made by Hasan Askari, although the Mujahideen segment was not done properly. The censors did not have any strong words for it. So how come Mona’s role in Kajra Re is such a bother?

Tv Drama Actress Shaista Wahidi Dr

Shaista Wahidi Dr


Pakistan’s favourite television anchor Dr. Shaista Wahidi’s story starts off on a similar note as any urban girl in her country. The Shaista of yesteryear, in her own words, was a young woman who felt she had to compromise to please her family. From marriage and kids in her teens to studying for a lost cause, she became a non-practising doctor to keep up with her parent’s wishes. While this brought the reward of a happy family, destiny had other plans for the now famous TV host.

Out of sheer boredom during her time as a housewife Shaista decided to try her luck by entering a VJ contest for a local FM station. The experience was second to none and eventually helped shape her transition to television. Blessed with an abundance of talent, namely the gift of the gab, Shaista has managed to connect with her audiences at an altogether different level not seen on Pakistani television before. From the public to politicians, cricketers to celebrities, Shaista is undoubtedly the preferred choice of a nation, which is fast catching up to her mantra of positivity and hope.


As her flagship show, Good Morning Pakistan (GMP), celebrates its first anniversary. Dr Shaista reveales her innermost thoughts about her journey to stardom and beyond.

Tell us about GMP on ARY, which in one year has become one of their leading programmes. How has the journey been?

GMP is my baby and I am proud of leading it for a year. Yes, it’s challenging hosting and producing as this means looking after the content and participating in the overall planning of the show, but I am ably supported by my production team led by my senior producer Talat Raza. In our team, one thing is very clear that no one is the boss and we all have the right to be heard. It’s a culture I love at ARY and am glad the channel has helped me cultivate a similar environment in the team.

The show is unique because not a single day passes when we don’t receive calls from minister’s wives or affluent families wanting to contribute or help about a certain issue that was discussed on that particular day. It’s very touching because we have a responsibility to society and through GMP we have been able to establish a platform for people to connect and help.

Moreover it is my personal objective to empower the Pakistani woman who desperately needs a voice and practical advice in various facets of her life. We have had fantastic response for introducing new elements like career counselling, medical and skin care advice and summer camps and we intend to keep moving in this direction.


Do you consider yourself an inspiration to women?

I believe in substance. You see it’s not about being a woman or man, it’s about the individual. If you believe in yourself then it becomes a completely different story. The whole world starts to revolve around you once you gain that self confidence. I never wanted to be the usual complaining woman considering that is the most common image of a female in our society. On the contrary, I am a big fan of Rhonda Byrnes’, The Secret, in which the law of attraction states that when you want something you must start believing in it and practice it as if you have it. I have applied this to enhance the power of positivity which people say I resonate but if you ask me I just dislike negative thinking.

Today I can proudly say I am at peace with myself. Besides this discipline is vital, which includes working out and keeping fit to beat stress, being health conscious and eating right. Mind you, all of these don’t come without a strict routine. I was never like this but have evolved with time in order to pursue the goals I have set in my life. I guess it shows and perhaps this is why they look up to me.

Your following is equally popular with male audiences. According to a survey men find you the best looking and most pleasant host. What are your thoughts?

Well it’s a plus point. I am aware of the fact that I am good looking and you are on the money about men watching GMP because of the looks. I see no harm in men liking women on the face of it as long as they are not hypocrites like most men in our society. I am glad they have at least admitted it in that survey but will be happier if they openly talk about their reason for watching others or me on the show whilst sitting next to their wives.

Television is larger than life to those watching at home and hence we do work consciously on the looks and makeovers for all the segments and hosts. For example I work with my designer Ruby Shakeel and stylist Mahjabeen who are responsible for making me look the way I do on the show. At the same time I am known to be choosy as I don’t like wearing loud colours or busy prints.

Your most ardent admirers are politicians, cricketers and celebrities. According to them you are their favourite host because you bring the best out of them. What’s your magic touch?

When someone is invited on my show I make it a point that they are treated as our houseguests including politicians and cricketers who are mostly grilled in interviews. I am fully aware that people want me to take them on and it’s not that I don’t but I just do it in a way which is subtle and humane. One of my memorable interviews was with our current Prime Minister on the eve of his win. My entire focus was on humanising Yousaf Raza the person and not Mr. Gillani the prime minister. To my surprise it took him just one question to start talking about his fondness for Indian films and specially Ashwariya Rai who is an absolute favourite of his, so much so that he used to watch Ash’s movies during his days of imprisonment. Pakistan loved that interview and I got such great feedback even from the critics, which was a pleasant surprise.
The morning routine for the morning host

Firstly, I wish myself good morning before anyone else does. No matter how clichéd it is, my belief is that you must first learn to love yourself in order to love the world.

My husband is usually late home from work in the evenings as he’s a workaholic but we both make it a point to spend the last hours sharing and catching up. Therefore, I go to bed very late despite the fact that I rise by six every morning. Once I’m up, I look forward to my three precious gems Shaafay, Fayz and Eman. Every day is a beginning full of energy and positivity in my life. As soon as I step out of the house I do a 360° from a devoted mother and a wife to an ambitious producer and host with a responsibility to lead a show, which makes a difference in the lives of millions every day.

Tv Drama Actress Samina Peerzada

Samina Peerzada

Born: Samina Butt – April 9, 1955
Occupation: Actress/Director
Years active: 1980’s–Present Actress, 1990’s – present Director
Spouse : Usman Peerzada (Married in 1975)

Samina Peerzada is a Pakistani teveision and film actress and director who was born to Moinuddin Butt and Almas Butt in Lahore. Her father is a mechanical engineer. She did her graduation in Commerce. During her academic years she took an active part in extracurricular activities. When she showed an inclination toward acting, both her parents supported her in adopting it as a profession.

In 1975 she married Usman Peerzada, who was also an actor encouraged her career. In 1976 she starred his film Nazdikiyan. This was followed by many films, including “Bazar-e-Husn” and “Khawahish”. She has a long list of TV plays to her credit, among them the popular “Raat” and “Hisar”. She has also performed on stage for such successful productions as “Raaz-o-Niaz” and “Gurya Ghar”.

She has travelled widely, performed in Oslo in an Ibsen festival, and won many awards, including two presidential awards for her films and two Graduate Awards for her work on stage. She has two daughters anum and amal peerzada.

Now, she has become one of the more promising directors hailing from Pakistan’s film industry based in Lahore. She initially directed a string of successful television productions, such as Sophia and Karb for Pakistan Tele-PTV, but later chose to move to the celluluoid world with her rather controversial directorial debut Inteha, a film in which she also had a short role. Inteha was well received in the major urban centers of Pakistan, and paved way for Peerzada to direct Shararat, a film which lacked the slick urban look which people related Peerzada’s films with. She has in recent years put cinema on the backburner and has instead chosen to act in a number of television serials for the plethora of new Pakistani cable / satellite channels. However, Peerzada returns to cinema with Saqib Malik’s directorial debut Ajnabee Shehr Mein where she stars alongside Shaan and Ali Zafar. The film is expected to release sometimes this year.

Currently Samina Peerzada has returned to acting in Pakistani television plays such as Sheeshay Ka Mahal, Kaanch, and Ghar Gharonda.

Recently, Samina Peerzada was invited by Amnesty International India in New Delhi for International Week of Justice Festival, December 5-10, 2008, commemorating the 60th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Samina participated in three public forums for the festival at Jamia Millia Islamia and Alliance Francaise on the issues of women empowerment, democracy and torture.

Tv Drama Actor Imran Abbas

Imran Abbas

Now that’s interesting. On Oct 18, actor Imran Abbas was on a late-nite show on PTV hosted by poet and playwright Wasi Shah. The show is called Raat Gaye and usually has a man of letters, along with a singer, as guest.

Seeing Imran Abbas there took many people by surprise, particularly when they came to know that the actor tries his hand at Urdu poetry. He had brought pieces of paper on the programme on which ghazals and nazms by known verse-wielders and himself were scribbled. He narrated them, albeit in a rush smothering some of the words, on the show. Some of his own poems were not bad, and had the metrical balance that’s a prerequisite for poetry.

Imran triggered the debate that actors in Pakistan nowadays don’t like to read, which is why their efforts lack poignancy while acting (or something to that effect). Actress Saina Saeed also joined the show by phoning in, agreeing with Imran Abbas that since some of the stars acquire popularity at an early stage of their career without having a book-reading background, they don’t deem it fit to study literature to hone their skills.

Now the query that springs to mind like a Ghalib’s couplet: if Imran Abbas is into literature and stuff, what has he so far been doing on TV? Which one of his plays indicated that he’s a literature buff? It’s only when he appeared alongside Wasi Shah that we came to know the actor’s fondness for poetry.

Tv Drama Actor Faisal Rehman

Faisal Rehman

Here to stay
By Maliha Mansoor

Getting a super start to his acting career with his debut venture and that too, at the age of fourteen, Faisal Rehman has come a long way in the three decade span of his showbiz career; but he feels there is many a mile to go still…… Here, in an all exclusive talk with HUMSAY, we unearth a facet of Rehman very rarely exposed to the media.

“The two things I always wanted to do from childhood were travelling and joining the Foreign Service” Faisal Rehman reveals, lounging back comfortably in his chair in the lawn of the house where he is busy shooting a comedy serial. But, obviously fate had other plans for him as he was thrown into showbiz while still at school.

“I got an opportunity to work in the film ‘Nahin Abhi Nahin’ – an extraordinary film that shocked people with its extremely out-of-the ordinary theme for the early ’80s – mainly because of the fact that my father was a respected cinematographer in the industry with films like ‘Heer Ranjha’ and ‘Dosti’ to his credit. I didn’t look at it as a career-making move, and in fact, had taken it for granted that this would be a one-timer and the chapter would be closed at its completion. I did not, in my wildest dreams, imagine that it would mark the beginning of a career that would stay with me these thirty years.”
With his characteristic dimpled smile, Rehman goes on to narrate how difficult it was for him to cope with studies and a career which though incidentally thrust upon him, had got him so involved that he couldn’t disengage himself. “My school – St Anthony’s – was a strictly Irish Brother Order and all my shootings were scheduled so I didn’t miss school even one day. The same schedule continued till I graduated – mind you, with flying colours!– from F.C College, Lahore.”

Faisal Rehman and Deepti Gupta in Malal

Although a difficult feat to achieve, not only did Rehman excel in his studies, he also became a roaring success on screen, performing in hit films such as ‘Yeh Zamana Aur Hai’, ‘Nadani’, ‘Love Story’ and ‘Doorian’. But in spite of numerous hits both on the silver screen, and in subsequent years, on the mini-screen, it is his debut movie that remains to date the foremost identification of his acting career.
