The one thing that any actor might dread more than anything is being a typecast. Though, that is far from the case for any of the actors we are talking about today, because these leading men have found their setting in the world of showbiz and displaying their versatility. So picked out 5 Pakistani actors who fit in any role.
From playing heroes to antagonists and supporting cast, here’s a a look at some of the recent roles played by these leading Pakistani actors who fit in any role.
BILAL ABBAS KHAN
Pyar Ke Sadqay has been the talk of the town, and a lot of the credit goes to the unconventional and unique leading roles, particularly the affable but frustratingly naïve Abdullah. Played by Bilal Abbas Khan, it is a polar opposite of the role he previously played in Cheekh, a villain with no remorse for his actions. The journey and growth he has shown from O Rangreza, Balaa, Cheekh, to now Pyar Ke Sadqay, the actor keeps us happily surprised with his performances and he tops the list of actors who fit in any role.
For someone who started his career as a rock star, Junaid Khan has come a long way as an actor. In Kashf, he is playing the love interest of Hira Mani. This intense love story needs him to show his emotions in a subdued manner, which he is doing perfectly. Earlier with plays like Kamzarf and Silsilay, he has demonstrated his range as an actor. Whatever the character, he has been able to find the right balance for it.
Wahaj Ali’s Ahad from Bikhray Moti is gaining popularity too. As an angry young man, he is extremely emotive. It has only recently started airing, but we can see the passion in his eyes for his love. Previously in Haiwan, Wahaj portrayed a conflicted son who is unable to comprehend the harsh realities of life. In the patriotic drama Ehd-e-Wafa, as a media person, he is the seeker of truth. All three entirely diverse characters and testing the abilities of the man as an actor.
Danish Taimoo is the lovely boy next door. That is how people who don’t watch a lot of TV dramas might see him. However, in plays like Deewangi and Ab Dekh Khuda Kya Karta Hai, he has played two dissimilar but equally villainous characters. Whatever these character’s motives, Danish has been able to make his loving fans hate him. That is a testament to his skills as an actor. And to remind us of his merry side, he is also playing a loving and always willing to sacrifice Shah Jahan opposite his real-life wife in Meherposh.
Lastly, we look at Faysal Qureshi. What can we say about this man? In Muqaddar, Faysal Qureshi, as Sardar Saif is a manipulative, powerful, and vengeful man. In Haiwan, he was an abusive monster. While in Baba Jani, he was an affectionate, humble, and protective man. This man has made every role believable.
Thanks to these fantastic performers, it is safe to say that Pakistani dramas will continue to attract audiences. Different and diverse characters are being written, and wonderful actors are adding their magnetism to it. Long it may continue
