Faysal Quraishi claims Aashiq Hussain to be a character different from the previous roles that he has played as he said:

“Aashiq Hussain is nothing like what the audience is used to seeing me as. He is a very funny yet complicated character but he is not negative. He merely doesn’t realize how badly his actions are affecting his loved ones. I think my fans will enjoy watching this serial and I cannot wait to hear their feedback. If you look at my previous work too, my characters can never be stereotyped and that is something I take pride in because I have worked very hard to not become type-casted”.

The star has been adding feathers to his cap since the young age of 6. Let’s hope he steals as many as hearts he did as Bashar Momin and adds another feather to his cap.
