Zeba Bakhtiar

Category: Ary Tv,Geo Tv,Hum Tv,Indus Tv,Ptv,Tv Onemansoor @ 9:24 am

Zeba Bakhtiar: Accepted the challenge! By Anis Shakur

‘Accept the challenges so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory’.

The above maxim holds true to the Pakistani show business celebrity, Zeba Bakhtiar.

Born on November 4, 1965 Zeba Bakhtiar or Bakhtiyar is a Pakistani film & TV actress and director, of Hungarian and Pashtun-Pakistani descent. She is the daughter of the former attorney general of Pakistan, Yahya Bakhtiar, hails from Baluchistan , Pakistan. Her mother is of foreign descent. Like Zeba Bakhtiar, her brother also associated himself with Pakistani television.

Equipped with higher educational grades, distinct family background and human values, Zeba Bakhtiar was attracted to show business as a teenager. The tremendous talent of Zeba Bakhtiar was there, just waiting to be used.

Zeba Bakhtiar debuted from the Karachi television’s play ‘Anarkali’, opposite Mehmood Akhtar. In it, she played the title role of ‘Anarkali’. The drama stirs the heart with its story of a girl in a man’s world. Those were moments for wistful looks and glistening eyes.

Back in the late 1980s, Zeba Bakhtiar was a young Pakistani actress of glistening freshness and uncanny intuition. Any one, whose heart does not embrace this gorgeous, gracious, glamorous girl of the yester year, probably does not have one.

Moreover, she often found, of all things, innovation and honor in the television programs. Soon she became the perennial favorite of Pakistani youth. Zeba Bakhtiar’s debut film ‘Hina’ was made and produced by R.K. films in India. She played the lead opposite Rishi Kapoor. Director, Randhir Kapoor, writer, Haseena Moin.

The moral authority she brought to the role in ‘Hina’, without sacrificing a youthful spontaneity, was astounding. Its characters make surprising connections when it comes to team- work.

Zeba Bakhtiar’s first marriage, which took place before the movie shoot of ‘Hina’ ended in divorce.

She is a clever, charming and intrepid artist, who rules the heart of innumerable people through her personality and her acting. An actress of uncommon grace and intelligence, Zeba Bakhtiar went on to make more movies in India like ‘Stunt man’ and ‘Sajan ka ghar’.

She often finds, among other things, prestige and challenge in the movie business. During those days, there were rumors circulating in the press of Zeba Bakhtiar’s marriage to Indian actor, Javed Jafri. However, Zeba Bakhtiar vehemently denied those allegations as a conspiracy against her.

In her movies and television plays, Zeba Bakhtiar displayed one of the defining sensibilities of the 1990s and beyond. She has captured the imagination of admiring fans since she was a girl.

The rosy radiance that follows a pleasant encounter with Zeba Bakhtiar is laudable. She reached the pinnacle of a remarkable career by following her own instincts.

In times due course, Zeba Bakhtiar moved to Pakistan and married actor- singer- composer, Adnan Sami, son of Aijaz Sami. Ah, the web of love. How these forces feed the flame of life. She had a son, Azan, from Adnan Sami.

Those were great moments at work, when Zeba Bakhtiar played the lead opposite Adnan Sami in her first Pakistani film ‘Sargam’. Theatrical release was on September 1, 1995. Director, Syed Noor, producer- composer, Adnan Sami.

Additionally, Zeba Bakhtiar’s caricature of lead actress in ‘Sargam’ has won the Nigar Award in her debut Pakistani movie. She seems destined to add more laurels to her celluloid persona. Indeed, she gives a brilliantly restrained performance in ‘Sargam’.

Zeba Bakhtiar’s marriage to Adnan Sami could not stood the test of time, and it resulted in their separation. That occurred after the theatrical release of ‘Sargam’, and Adnan Sami went abroad with his son, Azan.

After a long child custody battle, Zeba Bakhtiar succeeded in getting her son back. Those days Zeba Bakhtiar fielded inquiries about her relationship with Adnan and Azan, and in doing so proved that her heart was loyal.

Zeba Bakhtiar’s greatness shines through in director Sangeeta’s successful film ‘Qaid’ in which she played the lead lady opposite actor Saud. Alternating between television and films, she frequently was cast in major television roles.

She was most memorably cast in writer Rauf Khalid’s drama serial ‘Laag’, which was telecast from Pakistani television. An artist of unusual prowess and grace, Zeba Bakhtiar turned in one of her best performances as leader of Kashmiri independence movement, ‘Dukhtaran-e-Kashmir’ in ‘Laag.’

The drama serial ‘Laag’ made the public realize the deep resonance of her work. A part of her charm derives from the apparent fact that she is working and having fun at the same time.

Zeba Bakhtiar is, indeed, a loveable woman whose hatred of hypocrisy is legendary. She worked in the heartfelt and handsomely made movie, ‘Chief Sahib’ in 1996. In dramatic roles, the movie cast moves effortlessly from one scene to another. Producer- director, Javed Sheikh, stars included Zeba Bakhtiar, Javed Sheikh and Neeli.

Zeba Bakhtiar shone in her directional debut movie ‘Babu’ in 2001. Its story revolves around love, lust, and the well- known adage ‘give respect get respect’ starring Zeba Bakhtiar, dubbed as ‘Ghazal’, Saud Amin, Lehri, Peer Moazzam.

She brings a new level of intensity to her acting in the Pakistan television drama serial ‘Pehli see mohabbat’. Writer, Rafaqat Hayat, director, Najam-Uz- Zaman, executive producer, Ghazanfar Ali. ‘Pehli see mohabbat’ is the Urdu version of the English novel ‘Beware of pity.’ Cast included Zeba Bakhtiar, dubbed as ‘Sofia’ Shahood Alvi, and Shakeel. It is a story of a pretty handicapped girl.

Zeba Bakhtiar’s keenly articulate movie grammar and a tender grasp of human nature have maintained uniformity all through these times. Further, her artistry is worth applauding in television drama ‘Sangam’ Cast includes Zeba Bakhtiar as ‘Farah’, Talat Husain, Qazi Wajid. Written by Zahida Hina, director, Nasir Danawala.

Best known for her splendid direction capability, Zeba Bakhtiar attained major celebrity as an artist also in drama ‘Kundi’. Cast included Zeba Bakhtiar, Firdous Jamal.

She is the source of quite a few exemplary television plays. That said Zeba Bakhtiar’s resplendent career moved on fulfilling her initial promise of consistent hard work.

A quick example is the television drama ‘Kisay apna kahoon’ cast included Zeba Bakhtiar, Noman Aijaz and Talat Husain. Additionally, she emerged as a convincing artist in the television drama ‘Gunah gaar’. Cast included Zeba Bakhtiar, Izhar Qazi and Tahira Wasti.

Overwhelmed by her artistic prowess, the audience always gives her an enthusiastic response, which Zeba Bakhtiar well deserves. In spite of her enormous talents as director, Zeba Bakhtiar still possesses a face made for acting.

Zeba Bakhtiar (now Mrs. Zeba Bakhtiar Leghari) married Sardar Sohail Khan Leghari on the sixth of July 2008, in a Nikkah ceremony with close friends and family members. With her husband and her son Azaan (from her previous marriage), Zeba lives in Karachi and continues to direct and produce TV serials.

Drama Serial Aahat on Ptv

Category: Aahatmansoor @ 12:29 am

Aahat (An Approaching Sound) is the story of a young couple, their dreams, social pressures and the consequences of having too many children too soon. The television drama of six one-hour episodes is an outstanding example of the success of the Enter-Educate concept in diffusing family planning messages. It marked the first highly visible collaboration between Pakistan TV and the National Population Program, signaling a positive change in high-level government commitment to family planning communication in Pakistan. As in many Muslim societies, family planning has long been considered too sensitive a topic for mass media. However, the overwhelmingly positive response that the drama received has quieted such misconceptions and given high visibility to family planning. Originally scripted in Urdu, followed by an English subtitled version, the drama was broadcast on Pakistan Television (PTV) beginning October 1, 1991.

Director: Sahira Kazmi
Writer: Haseena Moin
Cast: Sania Saeed, Salman Ahmed, Samina Ahmad, Salma Zafar, Qazi Wajid, Huma Nawab, Talat Naseer, Ahmed Kapadia

Child Stars:
Shan Shirazi Nabeela Isfahani Zohra Malik Anam

Drama Serial Uncle Urfi on Ptv

Category: Ptv,Uncle Urfimansoor @ 2:55 am

‘Uncle urfi,’ could be ranked among the three greatest drama serials in Shakeel’s forty-year eventful career. Cast included Shakeel in the title role of ‘Uncle urfi,’ Shehla Ahmed as Beena, Qurban Jeelani as Shaheed bhai, Azra Sherwani as Ghazi, Jamshed Ansari as Hasnat bhai.

As the story goes, Shakeel, who is super-smartly dubbed as ‘Uncle urfi,’ takes interest in Beena. In reality, uncle urfi was desirous to make Beena happy. Logically, urfi should have taken Beena into confidence before doing her a favor. Instead, he kept her in the dark. The final moments of the last episode are fraught with pain and pathos.

Urfi tells Beena with certitude, ‘hamari shadi hogi to sara zamana deikhey ga.’ to which poor Beena replies, ‘kuchh shadiyaan dil kay weerano mein bhi to ho jaati hain, sirif khuda gawah hota hai.’

The emotionally charged conclusion of ‘Uncle urfi,’ was so unexpected that literally nobody was prepared for it. Indeed, Haseena Moin had instilled so much despair in its dialogues that thirty-two years later, it still stands as a classic in its bittersweet illustration of the unbreakable bond of family.uncle

Writer: Haseena Moin

Cast : Shakeel, Jamshed Ansari, Qurban Jilani, Shehla Ahmed, Akber Subhani, Feroze Zaidi, Shehnaz Ismail, Sikandar Hayat, Raju Jamil, Azra Sherwani

Drama Serial Kaisa Yeh Junoon on Ary Tv

Category: Ary Tv,Kaisa Yeh Junoonmansoor @ 2:18 am

The play boasts a stellar cast of Ayesha Omar and Asfar Rehman in the lead, along with Asif Raza, Madiha Iftikhar, Adnan Siddiqui, Savera Nadeem and Ali Kazmi to name just a few; the fact that Kiron Kher appears in a major support role says a lot about the production. The story revolves around the present day clash of values and western influence with tradition, culture and extremist religious issues as well as the obsession with money, land and power. There are some well choreographed songs and dances as well as wedding sequences; there is the usual love, emotion, tragedy and lots of intense drama with dialogue by Haseena Moin and story and direction by veteran Rana Sheikh.

Ayesha Omar looks lovely in perhaps one of the most challenging roles and looks like she has worked very hard. You can see a bit of Khuda ke liye there, too, but we have to wait with bated breath till the first episode goes on air July 27 to see how the drama unfolds. Sometimes the teasers and promos looked so good, one cannot help thinking why the mini screen when all this talent could be taken to 45mm.

Singer: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Composer: Waqar Ali
Directed by: Rana Sheikh
Written by: Haseena Moin

Cast: Adnan Siddiqui, Ayesha Omar, Azfar Rehman, Ali Kazmi, Kirron Kher (Indian Actress), Asif Raza Mir, Madiha Iftikhar, Savera Nadeem
