Sania Saeed

Category: Articles,Sania Saeedmansoor @ 4:13 am

Sania Saeed’s name has been synonymous with acting since the early ’90s when she wowed Pakistani television audiences with the subdued Mehrunnisa in Sitara aur Mehrunnisa. She became actively involved in theatre during the ’90s as well, as she continued to do fantastic television alongside.

Recently having bagged a Lux Style Award for Best TV Actress (Satellite) for Jhumka Jaan, Sania Saeed’s love affair with theatre breathed once again after a long hiatus as well. Katha presented Kahaniyan, three one-act plays which had Sania starring as one of the leads in each; and slipping into each character, chameleon-like. Her performance had people yelling out “you were terrific!” when she took a bow with the rest of the cast onstage and had people saying things like: “not a single dull moment.”

Sania Saeed has proved her acting mettle time and again, and her rendition of each character she plays translates as well onstage as it does onscreen.
For winning over the masses with her television roles, the intellectuals with her theatre performances and high-brow award juries as well- Sania Saeed is Instep’s Hotstepper this week for being an acting institution.

Kahanian staged at the Arts Council

Category: Articlesmansoor @ 1:18 am

Theatrics: Sampling life

By Sumera S. Naqvi
Katha’s director, Shahid Shafaat, is right in saying that the local audiences still bosom some kind of conviction to watching theatre that is funny and carries an aesthetic sense at the same time.

The acclaimed theatre troupe returned to stage after a hiatus of five years recently with Mein Adakara Banoon Gi, and now with Kahanian staged at the Arts Council from November 21-25, Shahid feels that it is this conviction from the audience that leads theatre groups to believe that the show must go on.

Katha’s Kahanian comprises three stories that expose human follies wrapped in a shell of senseless aplomb — these are little stories about you and me that we tend to make small talk with co-workers, relatives, friends, housewives, bus co-commuters, etc. All these stories, however, seem to run a common undercurrent — how we all continue to deceive ourselves with our own complex cultural and psychological dispositions that, if mirrored outside us, belittle us no end.

Sampling from the work of 19th century writers: famous American writer Henry James, Russian dramatist Chekov and Spanish brothers Serafin and Joaquin Alvarez Quintero, Shahid Shafaat adapted the interesting trio of plays immersed in a sense of realism that is universal to all kinds of audience. Thank God for adaptations though as original plays seem to be quite far-fetched at this point in time. One wonders why.

Chekov’s Lottery is about a docile housewife (Sania Saeed) and an egotist husband (Saleem Meraj) who win a lottery ticket worth Rs1 crore. As the power of love is suddenly overawed by the power of money, the husband realises that the (im)balance between the husband-wife relationship may be in jeopardy as the prize was in the wife’s name. Soon a real gain goes in vain as the husband mulls over the fate of the lottery ticket, tearing it up to keep the status quo intact.

Henry James’ Aunty (Kahan Ka Ishq) touches upon the insecurities of Farah (Sania again), an ageing woman who lives in a working women’s hostel and works for an insurance company. Her new roommate, Rachna (Fizza Zehra), turns out to be her college friend, a divorcee and a simple woman who teaches at a local college. Though the two stand in contrast, there seems to be an ‘opposites attract’ appeal between them which also tends to work as a controlling latch on each other — Farah is obsessed with her curves and her flirty nature but Rachna is the sane factor in her life.

Aik Subha is adapted from a play written by the Spanish brothers, Serafin and Joaquin Alvarez Quintero, which is about elderly people meeting in a park and remembering being in love with each other back in Delhi before Partition. Both try to mislead each other when they both know that they are the ones who were involved. The amusing exchange and the pleasant banter, though prolonged, was finely acted by Ehtashamuddin and Sania Saeed donned in a hunter’s kit and a sari, respectively — one not letting old age take over him while the other accepting it as a part of life.

Sania Saeed was seen at her very best as she acted the shades and tones of the characters very well in all of the three plays. She portrays roles that tend to resemble some relative or an acquaintance around us, “The audience tends to find a cousin or a chachi or a khala in me.” It may not sound very complimentary but it does imply her tremendous potential as a versatile actor.

One couldn’t help noticing an overspill on her part at times, but Sania was at ease on stage and undisputedly funny. In Lottery, Saleem Meraj commendably drew up a very engaging image of how a dominating husband can continue to befool his wife into worshipping her as the majazi khuda, not letting her ever take the driving seat.

Given the state of the art acoustics of the Arts Council theatre, Saleem Meraj and Ehtashamuddin pitched their voice throw levels appropriately according to the need of the situations.

Katha has a good sponsor in the Rotary as the latter sell tickets through their advantage in networking and philanthropic work. It was a pleasure to see the hall packed to capacity for theatre should not be shown for free. Many theatre activists feel it spoils the sense of commitment of the theatre goer.

Now that theatre groups are receiving more encouragement to revive their work, perhaps they should seriously hire financial managers who could work on the dynamics, especially the selling of the tickets. Katha is working on a new project due in March 2010, and one hopes they will find a sponsor to keep the ticket price reasonably within the reach of the common man. Why don’t corporate social responsibility departments of banks and companies take up the revival of theatre as a viable social issue to support?

Sania Saeed

Category: Actresses,Sania Saeedmansoor @ 2:58 pm

Interview by Uzma Mazhar

Having known Sania Saeed since our childhood days and with a mutual background in theatre (I worked as an actor in Katha, a theatre group established by her father and later run by Sania and Shahid Shafaat together), the interview seemed like a long time coming.

Sania was busy watering plants when I reached her house in Gulistan-i-Johar. Her Siamese cat, Makkhan, was more than welcoming, giving us company while she wound up her chores. Once done, Sania sat with us for the interview answering some pricking and other run-of-the-mill queries relating to her career, increasing commercialism, theatre, drama production and her first television commercial — all of which she replied to without mincing her words.

Q. You have always been a thinking man’s actress. Comment.

A. Well, thank you! It’s a very hard-earned reputation and I enjoy and respect it. Although I see it just as a term I have come across while reading stuff about myself. But if that is so I think that is how it should be, shouldn’t it? I mean actors should make one think and if people feel that way about me, I’m flattered.

Q. Having said that and while you are known for meaningful characters, of late it seems that your caliber is being compromised.

A. Do you really think so? Secondly, what is meaningful is also questionable as only talking about a certain aspect of struggle in a woman’s life and in a certain way is not the only thing that is meaningful.

As an actor there aren’t many roles being written and I can only choose from what is being offered to me… I can’t create them myself. Let me ask you: do you have any role in mind that was done by someone else that should have been done by me? The word compromise could be coined for my work in Jhumka Jaan where we were short on time, the script kept changing while we were shooting which made me demand a bound script or else. But with the kind of limitations that we work in… no this is not an excuse for bad work but I still gave my hundred-and-one per cent to that project.

Q. So is Sania the actress stuck in a rut today?

A. I stick by the rule of one play at a time but there are many actresses whose dramas run on different channels at the same time. Is it my fault that when Jhumka Jaan was on air another channel chose to repeat 2004’s Thori Si Mohabaat around the same time? Or when Ghost was on air, Shayad Kay Bahar Aaye and Aur Zindagi Badalti Hai was repeated by the same channel which I did way back in 1999? Of late I haven’t done any serials so nothing will be going on air till next year.

And what is all this talk about “suit nahi kiya?” If I did the kind of roles that people think suit me, they would still say that “yaar, she is not a versatile actress.” I have nothing to say to them.

Q. It is said that an actress’s shelf life is very limited. How do you see this notion?

A. I don’t agree with it. It all depends on what kind of an actor you are and what industry you are working in. Secondly, it also depends on the kind of actor you were when you were young along with the kind of evolution the industry is going through. People such as Meryl Streep and others in her age bracket also face such problems in an industry as big as Hollywood.

Yes, looks do matter but there are women in our industry who have aged so gracefully such as Uzma Gillani, Samina Peerzada… they have done and are still doing varied roles so what’s shelf life? It is not that women stop existing after 40. What we actually need to do is create female actors that can act beyond 40.

Q. Drama critics say that you aspire to be the Shabana Azmi of Pakistan with an inclination towards social work. Are you the rebel with a cause?

A. I’ve never aspired to be Shabana Azmi as an actress as I have always admired the late Smita Patel more. I don’t take myself that seriously. I think everybody should do what they have an aptitude for. I am very lucky that I got the support and chances that I wanted and the way I wanted to do it. It is all about the issues you are sensitive about not about being a rebel with a cause.

Take a poet for example, he will not go out on the streets and shout about atrocities. Instead, he will write and put his protest in words. What an actor will do is that s/he will play certain characters. I have been very lucky in terms of television, though theatre was in accordance to what I initially and really wanted to do. I don’t think anybody got the chance to play better and different characters than I have been able to do during my career.

Q. Any plans to return to your first love, theatre?

A. Putting up a performance is a difficult proposition. We have decided to do theatre but we will only be able to stage it in June this year. Though it would be a busy time for Shahid and me, as we will be concentrating on our television work, the venues are booked. It makes us extremely happy that there is so much theatre happening in town with Napa, Sheema Kirmani’s Tlism festival that concluded recently, Ajoka and with a dance festival to be held in April by Sheema that there are no dates available.

While it is a positive sign, doing theatre all over the world is not easy. It is a very expensive medium even with limited props and no sets, auditorium bookings, publicity and stage lights. We are a group of five-eight people who have to make sets, act, write the script and get costumes ready. For a few acting is a full-time job while others will be putting in a lot of extra efforts. It is not like I tell them let’s do theatre and we’ll manage to perform the very next day. Nevertheless, we are determined to finally put up a performance.

Q. Previously you had restricted yourself to voiceovers in commercials but now you also appear in a high-end cellular company ad. Why?

A. Two things: 35 mm and then Saqib Malik was after me for the past 10 years. I am very fond of him plus he is a creative person so I said yes. The reason why I haven’t done commercials is I didn’t want to portray a stereotypical image of woman in an ad. Even though the ad also carries such an image but I did it from the fun point of view. I wanted to know what technically in terms of acting would be different for 35 mm and I realised this was even worse because it was only 30 seconds and I couldn’t prolong my expression. It was fun but quite a challenge.

I don’t know if I would do another commercial but it was seemingly harmless because it wasn’t that I was taking responsibility for any food item or a brand of fairness cream. It was after a long time that I got to work with Humayun Saeed also. The team was a nice bunch of young people who were excited to have me on board even though I argued about why we always portray women in the same light. But I liked the whole setup and they were open to my ideas and my bantering which was fun.

Q. You have lived a very private life and curbed rumours regarding your personal and professional life while staying in the limelight. How did you manage?

A. I keep to myself mostly and I also think that an actor’s work is there for public consumption but not their private lives. It is like you don’t share their pain when they are old or when they are in poor health. I take acting as my job and all this blown-out-of-proportion media jargon is mind-boggling. Actors are normal human beings and they have the same emotional problems that anybody else does. They have an edge because they are more sensitive which proves to be a negative trait at times. I don’t want to lead my life for the four people who appreciate me or see me in a particular way.

Q. The grapevine has it that you were to an extent responsible for the Fuzon breakup and that you made the wrong decision by becoming their manager?

A. It’s the people who don’t know me… what can I say to them? They will believe whatever they want to. The people who know me, the people who have worked with me and those who matter to me can judge it themselves if I was capable of breaking up a band. I have nothing to say to counter wagging tongues.
