Prominent Actors We Will Get to See in Films Next Year!


As successful as it proved to be for our film industry, 2018 is soon going to end with some outstanding movies in its bucket including Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2, Load Wedding, Parwaaz Hai Junoon, Cake, Motorcycle Girl and Teefa in Trouble.

Now, we are excitingly looking forward to 2019, that looks even more tempting in terms of the number of movies that are going to release next year and their star-studded cast which includes some of our favorites.

Where many well-known names are going to make a comeback after a long hiatus from the big screen, there will also be some actors who will make their first appearance. Including Fawad Khan, Sami Khan, Faysal Quraishi, Humaima Malick and Shamoon Abbasi, here is the list of actors who we will get to see in films next year!


  1. Faysal Quraishi- Sorry – The Love Story

The veteran actor Faysal Quraishi is going to return to the big screen after 19 years with Sorry – A Love Story, that will also mark his debut film as a producer. The actor was last seen way back in 1998 when he did the last of his 19 films after which he switched to TV and became a rage with Boota From Toba Tek Singh! We can’t wait to see him play the lead role in this upcoming romantic-drama film.


  1. Fawad Khan – Maula Jutt

Fawad Khan is probably the major reason why Maula Jutt has become the talk of the town. The Khuda Kay Liye actor has also starred in some Bollywood movies and is praised on the other side of the border as well. His first and so far only film in Pakistan Khuda Kay Liye came way back in 2007, making it a comeback after a dozen years! Fawad is all geared up for his rough and tough look in Maula Jutt 2 and it can’t get more exciting.


  1. Humaima Malick – Maula Jutt

After leaving a mark with her performances in not just our film industry but also in Bollywood, Humaima Malick will now star in one of the most anticipated movies Maula Jutt, alongside Fawad Khan.

The Bol actress has been praised for her versatile performances and let’s see how she will ace her new project. Her last films Dekh Magar Pyaar Se and Arth didn’t do well in cinemas but she stood out in both projects with the oomph factor that makes her one of our favourite actresses.

Since the teaser of Durj got out, the pictures of Sherry Shah are making rounds everywhere for her intense and intriguing character. Filled with revenge, hatred and mystery, the actress will play a pivotal role in Durj alongside another talented name, Shamoon Abbasi. Sherry Shah made her film debut way back in 2005 in Tere Bin Jiya Na Jaye and hasn’t been seen in a film since.

The pictures from the sets of Sherdil have been circulating for quite some time now and Mikaal has opted for a completely fresh look in this movie that we can’t wait to see. He was last seen in Na Band Na Baraati but we don’t count it as his film, since it featured Shayaan Khan more and focused less on our favourite actor.


  1. Armeena Khan – Sherdil

With Bin Roye and Janaan in her bucket, the gorgeous Armeena Khan will also return to the big screen with Sherdil and 2019 finally looks like the year for its release. She will be seen as Mikaal Zulfiqar’s love interest in a film that also features Hassan Niazi and Sabeeka Imam.
