Pakistani dramas have a huge fan following in the country as well as abroad. Dramas have introduced many new actors who have represented the country internationally. Many celebrities have a massive fan following of their own. These celebrities include the likes of Mahira Khan, Aiman Khan, Fawad Khan, Hania Amir, etc.
However, there are some Pakistani actors who, despite all their efforts, could not gain viewership. This is not because they are not skilled actors but perhaps because of their unwillingness to explore their creative boundaries and being typecast as the damsel in distress and traditional hero.
Here are some of the Pakistani actors who have been trying hard to impress the viewers:
1. Muneeb Butt
Muneeb Butt began his acting career in 2012 with an ARY Digital drama called Bandi. Since then, Muneeb Butt has acted in many dramas and a couple of films. Both of his movies, Halla Gulla and Ishq 2020, couldn’t gain any success at all. Additionally, not many of his dramas received fame and fortune.
2. Danish Taimoor
Danish Taimoor has worked in numerous dramas since the beginning of his career. He married Ayeza Khan in 2014. In 2015, his first film Jalaibee was released. He then said in an interview that he would not work in dramas anymore.
It was because he believed that dramas and films should have separate casts and no one would pay to see an actor in a movie when they can see him on TV. However, when Pakistani films didn’t do well, he made a comeback in dramas in 2018.
3. Agha Ali
Agha Ali hails from a show business family. Not only that, his father and grandfather are actors; he is also the nephew of Waseem Abbas and cousin of Ali Abbas. In addition to being an actor, Agha Ali is also a singer who has sung OSTs of many dramas.
Agha Ali has worked in many dramas. However, he has failed to gain viewership due to being cast in similar roles in all of his work. Agha Ali plays the typical playboy usually.
4. Hina Altaf
Like her husband, Agha Ali, Hina Altaf has also been trying hard to impress viewers since her debut. She has worked in many dramas; however, her most notable one is the 2016 drama Udaari. In Udaari, she played the role of a teenage Zebo. Despite her acting skills, Hina Altaf has not played anything other than the stereotypical Pakistani drama characters.
5. Saboor Aly
Saboor Aly began her acting career in 2011. Since then, she has worked in many television dramas and a couple of films. She has played villainous roles as well as the damsel in distress kind of characters, but still, she has been trying hard to get viewers’ attention. The audience has recognized not much of her work.
