Stars We Want To See More Often

There are many stars in our televisions industry who are immensely talented and it is always a pleasure to watch them on-screen but for some reason or the other they do not appear on-screen as often as we would like to see them. There are some stars who are very selective about the kind of work they do, others are busy with their families or giving time to other fields with which they are also related. Many of the stars in our industry are multi talented, there is hardly any actor who acts alone, many of them host shows, sing and some are even involved in production and direction. This could also be the reason why we don’t get to see these actors as often as we would like to. Here is a list of few actors who I think do not appear on-screen as often as we would like to see them.

sanam balochSanam Baloch:

Sanam Baloch Is an actress, model and a hostess and she excels in all three fields. Sanam Baloch’s work is a proof of the fact that she is extremely talented and takes what she does very seriously. Her performances in Doraha, Daam, Dastan and Durr-e-Shehwar in particular were unforgettable. After watching Durr-e-Shehwar in particular I waited anxiously to watch this diva on-screen again but I must say that Roshan Sitara and Nadamat both failed to bring out the best in her. Although Sanam Baloch was spot on as the bubbly character in Roshan Sitara but unfortunately the play itself failed to make an impact with the audience. Sanam Baloch has done full justice to her character in drama serial Kankar, no one could have played this character better than her. 

I am anxiously waiting to see Sanam Baloch in another play which will bring out the best in her. She is definitely one of those stars who breathe life into every character and someone you would want to see more of.

asif raza mirAsif Raza Mir:

This highly endowed gentleman needs absolutely no introduction. Words fall short when it comes to praising his talent. He is an actor who fits perfectly in serious and comedy roles and no one delivers dialogues like him. Apart from being a very gifted actor, he also has a very charming personality and wants to do whatever he can in order to make Pakistan’s drama Industry progress. The reason why we don’t get to see to see him on-screen often enough could be that apart from acting, Asif Raza Mir also has a very big production house to run and he has always been running a business too.



babar aliBabar Ali:

I must confess that I was not a big fan of Babar Ali to begin with but his acting in “Ik Nazar Meri Taraf” completely blew me off. I honestly did not think he had in him and found it difficult to believe that an actor like him who has always been doing larger than life characters in films could mould himself in a character which was quite unlike many that he had played till now. Babar Ali has proven that he is a very gifted actor and a good script and director can bring out the best in him. My list would have been incomplete without his name here because ever since “Ik Nazar Meri Taraf” Ended, I have been waiting to see him in a good role.


alishbaAlishba Yusef:

Alishba Yusef’s fans don’t get to see enough of her ever. Her acting talent was wasted in Mere Dard Ko Jo Zuban Miley and she has not appeared on screen ever since.  She is a great actress and also totally adorable. She has earned a very good name for herself in the industry in a very short span of time. I would really like to see Alishba in lead roles and I am hoping that she does not go off screen like many of the other actresses who are involved in different fields of work.




nadia jamilNadia Jamil:

I think the sole reason why we don’t’ get to see this wonderful actress on-screen as often as we would like to is that her heart is still set with theatre and even now she is busy working in International theatre projects and is hoping that she will be able to do her country proud. Nadia Jamil studied drama from Hampshire College and Allegheny College and she believes that her degree and the experience in theater both really helped her in her acting. Nadia Jamil’s first play was “Putli Ghur”, it was a long play that is still fresh in my mind and I go and watch it over and over again whenever I get time. Having family commitments is also another reason why Nadia Jamil does not appear in dramas too often. She has nailed every character she has ever chosen and definitely is one of those actresses who illuminate the screen with their presence. Watching her in the telefilm Behad was an absolute delight but I do get the feeling a little too often that we don’t get to see her often enough on screen.


I must share something with all of you, I made a similar list a few months back of actors who were not being seen often enough on-screen and quite interestingly all those actors who were rarely seen on-screen started working on regular basis…coincidence of course! Are there any actors who you want to see more often on-screen? Do share your thoughts.

  • good list Fatima..oh ye kya pooch liya apnaayy,now if fawad's fans started commenting here then the page will soon be filled with 'we want to see Fawad MORE;). as far as I m concerened,my favourit actors r already in ur list(Nadia Jameel and Sania Saeed) yes Sajid HAssan is an actor whom I would like to c .and my other favourits as Sawera NAdeem and Amina Sheikh are already there on screen:)

    • Thank you Mrs. Asim, yes absolutely right how could i forget Sajjid Hassan. I really liked his character and acting in Janaat Se Nikali Hui Aurat. Honestly speaking, Don't mind seeing more of Savera too :)

  • I agree with your list but I would like to add Alishba Yusef, Mahira Khan, Adeel Hussain and Fawad Khan in this list. Fawad should get more selective about his roles and not take the kind of role he did in Ashk! I have been waiting to see Adeel since Mora Piya and now he's coming back with Silvatein! Alishba is a wonderful actress and I want to see more if her! Mahira has only done Shehr e Zaat since Humsafar! I want to see more of these four as well!

    • Mahi thank you for adding to the list, I agree Fawad Khan should choose his characters more wisely. Alishba Yusef's character in Ek Nazar Meri Taraf was one that stayed with me for a very long time so definitely would like to see her in more powerful roles. I think Mahira Khan's first passion is modelling , that is why we don't see her on-screen often enough.

  • Oh yes i remember that list.This one is pretty good too.I would like to see as Mrs Asim said,Amina and Savera.Hamza Ali Abbasi and Adeel Hussain.They should come on TV more and more.As for new comers,Mansha Pasha,Maheen Rizvi and Madiha Rizvi.They are too talented.And they should come more in full-fledged roles :)

    • And I rememeber your comment under that list too;) I remember you commented after those stars started appearing more often. Honestly speaking Hammu I really wanted to add Savera too , she is superb and i would not mind seeing more of her. But like many of these actors she is very selective too. Maheen Rizvi deserves a lead role now I think, we will be watching her play another side role in Silvitein. Mansha Pasha is doing so well as Sidrah in ZGH, definitely a good addition to the list:) Thank you so much for reading (must thank you now right, since you are not a regular anymore;)

      • Yes.That's right.She is very choosy about the roles.You're getting way too formal Fatima lol.I may not be a regular Commentor,but i sure am a regular reader!

  • I quite agree with the list & most of the comments as well.
    Alishba's best has been ek nazar meri taraf.. She was too good in that one.. want her to see in some more performacnce oriented roles..

  • well honestly speaking i dnt want 2 see any of them
    i like samina pirzada, fawad, saba qamar, rubena ashraf n alishba n the girls in miratul uroos both sis
    i dnt like any 1 in this list…..

  • I would love to see Sahira Kazmi and Rahat Kazmi. Marina should come as a actor more often.Sania is superb too. Would love to see them. In the new comers Mansha Pasha is very good and she must get a lead role now. I would also love to see Babar ali and Fawad of course! We never get enough of Fawad, but he MUST choose his roles carefully.

  • yes you are right your selection of actor is excellent, but I must say if they come often they lost their charms like some of actors I must say our producers have to choose good actors for their dramas. Some of our production company cast same actors in every drama. that' why we don't wanna see some actors we are really bore to watch them again again. Those are very good actors but doing so many dramas people are fed-up. I really want to ad Naveen Waqar , Adeel Husain, Ainy Jafferi and Noor Hassan these are new and very talented and fit their self in any role.

  • I absolutely agree with the writer except one name That is Syra Yousaf . She appeared in two serials in last quarterly. Coke Kahani and Tanhayyan 2. So far as the failure of Roshan Sirtara is concerned. This was a five page short story . The drama directer and producer tried to prolong it to several episodes, how could it be suceeded. Moreover Momy Rana did not suit Sanam Baloach. His couple should be with Naheed Shabbir in the serial. The story was able to make just a long play not an episodic serial.

  • I completely agree on Sanam and Sania. Two wonderful actresses that are extremely convincing in their work. sadly they don't take up many projects and as a fan I miss them! wishing them all the best and hoping that future projects are a success

  • There's a better way to see more stars, BANG ur head with a hammer!!! tussi stars hee stars dekho ge:-)
    Just kidding. Nadia Jamil is a very good actress. Almost all of her dramas are very unique.

  • I think i will write an article titled "stars we want to see less of" and the actress who will top the list will be sajal ali.also mawra,urwa,ahsan khan,amna sheikh,saba hameed (only as mean saas)rest is ok.feel free to add to the list guys :-)

    • Sorry Kiwi your comment went in the spam folder but it is here now. Sure thing, why don't you write the article and submit it, sounds like a great idea.

  • Hi Fatima , I agree with you I like sanam baloch and Syra both r v talented but sanam is unfortunate that she don't get good characters , type casting , always poor gareeb majboor larki ….
