5 Rising Pakistani Actors of 2017


Every year brings with it a new wave of young artists in the Pakistan. Some vanish out of sight others shine brightly. What makes them shine? Good looks, good looks, and good looks. Just kidding.

They are all young, ambitious and most importantly full of talent. This is the reason why are able to carve their name in the industry, already full of accomplished actors like Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Fahad Mustafa.

Find out who they are below:

1. Mohsin Abbas Haider:

Labeled as the Jack of all trades. Be it singing, songwriting, hosting or acting, he has done it all. Mohsin started out his career as an RJ. Flash forward a couple of years where he is seen making his big screen debut in 2014’s ‘Na Maloom Afraad’. Currently, he is gracing the small screen opposite the beautiful Kubra Khan in ARY Digital’s ‘Muqabil’.

2. Bilal Abbas Khan:

SRK’s entrance in K3G is what inspired Bilal to become a star. As the years went by this dream still burned inside him. This is the reason he doubled up as theatre artist while studying. The hard work bore fruit leading to offers like ‘Dum Phukht’ and ‘Saaya-e-Deewaar Bhi Nahi’ coming his way. His new project is called ‘Rasm-e-Duniya’.

We would suffer till the time we are obsessed with our surnames. Let's work on our first names to get acknowledged.

3. Feroze Khan:

This Khan faced the camera as a VJ and now he is the one being interviewed. He debuted in ARY Digital’s social drama ‘Chup Raho’ in 2014. Two years down the lane he is seen starring again opposite  Sajal Aly on the silver screen inZindagi Kitni Haseen Hay’. Right now he can be seen in Hum Tv’s latest show, ‘Wo Ek Pal’.


4. Osman Khalid Butt:

Mostly known for his link up with Maya Ali. There is more to this man than meets the eye. He is currently racing to the top with his latest release ‘Balu Mahi’. Apart from this, he has been the backbone of the South Asian’s literary project, Desi Writer’s Lounge. We wonder if he will shake the literary world one day like he has the entertainment industry.

5. Emaad Irfani:

Emaad might have had several modeling awards under his belt.Yet, his aim is to break the “models can’t act” stereotype. The plan is going well so far with memorable performances in shows like,  ‘Aik Thi Misaal’,’Dil Nahi Manta’ and the recent ‘Saya-E-Deewar Bhi Nahi’. Irfani is currently searching for the perfect script to enter the big screen.

Old at heart…but I must not hesitate…If I'm to find my own way out' #estranged #kuchnakaho #humtv
