Having variety of characters in a play is important in order to attract audience. It is the responsibility on actors that they understand the nature of character well and give their performance accordingly. The writer might have etched out the character well but if actors don’t give their best towards the character then audience will not enjoy the true feeling of a particular role. On many occasions actors have done justice with their respective role through brilliant performances but on many occasions they have also failed to deliver the requirements of character as well.
Hence actors are awarded if they fulfilled the demand of character provided in the story. Many plays in the past were successful just because of character driven narratives like Pyaray Afzal, Zindagi Gulzar hai, Meri Zaat Zara-e-Benishan, Bilquess Kaur, Durr e Shahwar, Aunn Zara etc. Different characters in the story gives negative and positive vibes and hence actor will only become successful if he/she can conform according to the demand of character.
In past we have appreciated lots of actors/actresses on their performances in the positive role but recently I came across with some brilliant performances done in negative roles that have actually won the audience attention against positive roles. Obviously the success of negative role is that when audience completely starting hating the character.
Here is the list of those actors who in my opinion had done a commendable job in a negative role.
Jibran as Numair in Chup Raho: In my point of view Jibran truly deserves some special award for his performance in Chup Raho. Jibran no doubt is a gem of Industry as he always do justice with every roles. However if you ask me about his best performance ever then for sure I will say that his negative role in Chup raho was the best one. Jibran without any doubt is a versatile actor and I want him to appear more in high budgeted dramas with good script.
