Promising New Actors:

The last list I made of promising new actors a few months back contained the names of Umer Naru, Yasir Shoro, Naveen Waqar, Annie Jaffrey and a child star. Since then many new faces have proved that they are equally talented. I take pride in the fact that our entertainment industry is filled with amazing talent. We have seen some of these actors in many of the dramas but I think that they are capable of doing much better and they should be given a chance to play a lead role in dramas. I must give credit to Tanya here for inspiring me to go ahead with writing this article; otherwise the reviews keep me occupied enough. I request everyone to add new names to this list and also give your opinion about the actors who are part of the list.


1. Sheryaar Munawar:


I don’t think this actor needs any introduction; he has stolen the hearts of many with his amazing talent and has done a great job of playing Urooj in MDKJZM. I really want to see him perform a character where we also get to gauge his dialogue delivery. In my opinion if an actor can do so well without uttering any dialogues, I am sure he can do wonders while playing other characters.

Shehryaar is an IBA graduate and lives in Karachi.


2. Kiran Haq:


Another emerging young talented actress, who seems to have a natural aptitude for acting, we saw her playing Mansoor’s sister in Durr-e-Shehwar and she is performing in quite a few plays at the moment. I am certain that Kiran Haq will go a long way, here is wishing her all the best.




3. Maya Ali:


I am certain that a lot of people will agree with me that Maya Ali is a very gifted young lady and she has a very cute face. She played Durr-e-Shehwar’s sister in the play and I am looking forward to watching her play the lead role in Ek Nayee Cindrella.





4. Yumna Zaidi:


The first time Yumna Zaidi caught my attention was when I saw her performing Sadaf’s younger sister in Thakan, most of us I am sure do not think very highly of Mehak but one must appreciate the great acting done by this gifted actress.












5. Hamza Ali Abbasi:


Yes, we may not like the Omung Lassi add and we all hate Salaar but the actor playing it has tons of potential and he is definitely someone I would want to see more of on television. Hamza ali Abbasi has acted in many International projects as well and also directed the film ‘Mud House and the Golden Doll’. He is an actor, writer and a director. We will also be seeing him in the upcoming Pakistani Film “Waar”. Having started off with theatre, this actor is bound to have a very promising future in films as well as in dramas.




6. Maheen Rizvi:


This list would be incomplete without this endowed performer, she is another actress who was born to perform. We have seen her doing complete justice to her roles in Zard Mausam and Bilquees Kaur but her fans want to see her playing a lead role because she truly deserves it.









Please feel free to add to the list and share your opinion about the actors in the list.
