EARLY AND DRAMA CAREER:
Sanam started her career as a VJ in 2008 on Play TV, during that period she was also doing her BBA. While doing her MBA in 2010 she moved towards AAG TV. Sanam got a big break in her career with her debut drama Dil e Muzter. She played the role of Sila opposite Imran Abbas Naqvi. Audience liked her pair with Imran a lot and she made it to the list of most successful actresses when she was just one drama old. She also got big projects after it. Her next big drama was also with HUM TV. She played the lead role opposite Meekal Zulfiqar and Adeel Hussain. The drama was written by Umera Ahmed. Though the show ran very slow and was dragged a lot since people liked it. It was second time in a row when Sanam played a damsel in distress. Then she did Mere Humdam Mere Dost based on Farhat Ishtiaq’s novel which aired on Urdu 1. She played the lead opposite Adnan Siddiqui whereas Hareem Farooq was the antagonist. It is the only show in her whole career which she had done for a channel other than HUM, though the drama was also produced by Momina Duraid. Then came Alvida which was also opposite Imran Abbas Naqvi and aired on HUM TV. Her co-star Sarah Khan got more appreciation for Alvida but her pair with Imran was again a treat to watch for audience.
Sanam has started her career as a VJ thus it was her first attempt in showbiz. Later Sanam went back to hosting on HUM TV where her first show was a special transmission with the cast of Zindagi Gulzar Hai which he hosted. HUM TV’s morning show Jago Pakistan Jago was being hosted by Fahad Mustafa at first and he made the show a hit. But he shifted to ARY where he now hosts Pakistan’s most famous game show. The vacant seat went to Sanam and she started hosting Jago Pakistan Jago and has been doing it for some years now. Sanam also hosted two award shows on HUM TV. Sanam has mainly limited herself to hosting morning shows now and has not returned towards dramas after Alvida yet.

She was blessed by Allah with a beautiful daughter in November the same year. Her daughter’s name is Alaya. Sanam gained a lot of weight post giving birth to her daughter but people also came out in her support.
Advertisements are very important part of an actor’s career. They are not only a source of revenue for them but also go on to show how successful they are. Sanam however has not done much in this regard and only has one advertisement worth talking. It was for Nestle Everyday Pakistan.
