Roohi Bano

Category: Actresses,Roohi Banomansoor @ 1:34 pm

roohiKahkashan Farooq & Hina Pervaiz The greater the soul is, the greater the grief given to it, once said another living legend Bano Qudsia about the great artist Roohi Bano. A shy and timid young girl of 17 entered into the world of acting and gave a new dimension to it, of its own kind. Having won three graduate awards, the Nigar Award, President Award and two PTV awards, she has now made a comeback after a long, painful and sad period of absence. Roohi Bano a veteran actress reminisces about her glowing past with the Eyecandy team She said, “I was only 17 when I thought of joining this field. Initially it was not very hectic but afterwards it turned otherwise. Although I was very young and shy, but I discovered a hidden actress inside me. As soon as I would come in front of a camera that actress used to emerge. I took admission in GCU Psychology Department and did my masters in 2nd division. I was not very bright in academics but I had keen interest in the creative arts, theatre and other co-curricular activities. As we all know that joining show biz at that time was not a very strong means of earning and was not considered very proper among the masses. When she was asked about the situation she said, Yes, indeed a lot of effort was required in this field but with no return. I didn’t earn a substantial amount of money, but only fame came as a reward. I needed money as well. I wanted to have my own house and car. So far as joining media is concerned, I faced no opposition from my family; in fact my mother was a great support. She helped me a lot. It was her dream that I should have fame and my name should be known everywhere. Talking about her lifelong acquaintanceship with Bano Qudsia, she stated, “She has always been my favourite, she liked me and she wrote about me. Talking about her favourite plays, delightedly she said, “Darwaza and Sarab were my favourite plays. The script of Darwaza was really inspiring and it was directed by one of my favourite directors MNH. The most memorable characters of these two plays were Usman Peerzada and Rahat Kazmi besides my own role.Nowadays it is the fashion of the day to find rivalry among co-stars, however when we asked Roohi Bano about she fellow actresses she commented, “My favourite actress was Saira Kazmi in TV, but I never considered any of them to be my competitors. My focus was my work, which was my passion. Although rivalry existed at that time as well, but I was hardly affected by it. In the film industry, there was lot of jealousy for me. Shamim Ara and Zeba were my competitors. I did a few films but people did not let me click. Furthermore, in our films there is a tendency for exaggeration and overexposure. At that time, there was no proper script. Although big directors were working, like Shabab Kiranwi, but he also could not give me a proper breakthrough. Besides, my identity was TV. In films a lot of effort was required, so I could not manage to surmount the obstacles. In the Indian film industry, I was inspired by Madhu Bala and Nargis. For artists fame and appreciation are just like oxygen, because the art of any artist breathes through it. But as we all know that nothing is that easy and simple in this world as it appears to be. So, when we asked Roohi Bano about the good and bad thing about being famous she told us that good thing about being famous is that people recognize you, while the bad thing is that people tease you unnecessarily. According to her, nowadays one thing has changed about the acting profession, “Today, it is not the same as in the past when people used to rush whenever they would see a famous actor in some market or public place. Now, they have become accustomed to seeing them at such places thus they do not find that much charm in it. It is not a surprise for them any more. Instead, like western countries, they find themselves rubbing shoulders with them off and on. They respect them but do not get dazzled by their presence. What is life? When this perplexing question was asked from Roohi Bano she gave a very simple answer: “Life keeps on moving, no full stop comes even if you wish so, however, if you don’t wish it, then it definitely comes. As we all know that the mushrooming of TV channels has changed the media scene but somehow we don’t find ample focus on the quality and content of TV productions. When we asked the veteran actress her comment on this, she said, “As far as the lot of contemporary directors is concerned, I am not really satisfied. All the directors I liked have retired. I don’t find the same quality of writers, actors or directors and as far as the quality of channels is concerned, I don’t think that they have much standing, because they don’t tend to produce masterpieces and they haven’t really owned the master figures like us. Probably due to this, the quality of the TV productions has declined.When she was asked about her present interest and activities, she replied “I am reading stories these days. My favorite writers and poets these days are Ahmed Nadeem Qasmi, Bano Qudsia, Ashfaq Ahmad, Dr Anwar Sajjad and others. I spend my time in watching art movies because I am planning to write and produce a play of my own. These days, I am working on a telefilm which is a remake of Darwaza. Sharing her political views with Eyecandy team, she opined that now politics is in a much better position.Somehow God has listened to us, she commented, “The changes can be witnessed at the grass root level but it is a high time now that we should institutionalize our politics. How composed she is now, thinking that we thanked the legend and ended the interview.

Roohi Bano

Category: Actresses,Roohi Banomansoor @ 10:31 am

Roohi Bano is known for possessing the rare quality of conveying feelings and expressions through her eyes. As an actress, she exercised full command over her emotions and knew how best to translate them into action and convert them into pieces of unforgettable drama. She says she desperately misses her co-stars of yesteryear such as Shafi Mohammad, Talat Hussain, Uzma Gillani and the late Tahira Naqvi.

Roohi first television appearance was in a quiz show while she was still a student. Then, Farooq Zameer offered her a chance to act in plays which she accepted while continuing her studies for a Master degree in psychology from Government College, Lahore. She married twice and also acted in a few films but television was where she belonged, and it remained her first love.

Given the condition she was in before treatment, her recovery has been likened to her character in one of her famous long plays, Darwaza. In the play produced by Muhammad Nisar Hussian in the 1980s, she plays a TB patient who recovers miraculously.

Television had found a great actress in Roohi Bano and her repeatedly outstanding performances in Qila Kahani, Zard Gulab, Hairatkada, Darwaza, Kiran Kahani, along with several other serials and long plays, set her head and shoulders above her contemporaries. The sensitivity with which she played her roles made her popular across the country to the effect that many of Roohi’s fans still remember her as a charming actress par excellence, who ruled the small screen for nearly two decades.

She is the daughter of famous Indian tabla nawaz Ustd Allah Rakha Khan. She was married twice & had a son, Ali, who was murdered in Lahore in 2005.

Having won three graduate awards, the Nigar Award, President Award and two PTV awards, she has now made a comeback after a long, painful and sad period of absence. Roohi Bano a veteran actress reminisces about her glowing past with the Eyecandy team.

Breakingnews: Nabila reinvents (again) for reality TV

Category: Articlesmansoor @ 2:18 am

By Aamna Haider Isani

No one in the fashion industry reinvents as well or as frequently as Nabila. And she’s up for changing again as she will be stepping into television very soon. What will her program be about? Well, from what we’ve heard, she’ll be transforming people (live subjects?) on a reality show much on the lines of Extreme Makeover. The people will be given an image makeover from things as basic as a wardrobe change to procedures as radical as nose jobs.

Who are these people willing to be nip/tucked on the telly in Pakistan? We don’t know yet but we do hope see some familiar faces talking about the magical procedures that help them look the glorious way they do. Nabila, who has always been very vocal about cosmetic procedures – many of which she has admitted to undergoing herself – would undoubtedly be the best person to put this show together. She will be shooting from next month and the show is expected to air by March 2010.

In case you’re wondering, the program will be structured within Pakistan and will give viewers an interesting insight into this body sculpting business, which is all the rage these days. We may not be aware of it but more people in Pakistan are going under the knife for cosmetic reasons than we know!

Meanwhile, Nabila will be putting her own transformation (she recently lost more than 70 pounds) to good use as she has just modeled Sonya Battla’s latest collection for a local fashion magazine.

“I prefer to stay behind the lens,” she confirmed this information to Images on Sunday, “but I liked Sonya’s deconstructed abstract collection and decided to go for it.”

Labels on the ‘brandwagon’ to Lahore… finally

Labels may be one of the first multi-brand boutiques around, but until recently it was also the only one not to have branched out beyond one city; its existence was limited to Karachi. But the multi-brand fashion store will be opening in Lahore by the end of January, confirms fashion retailer Zahir Rahimtoola. It will be jumping on a fashionable smorgasbord that already has Ensemble, The PFDC Boulevard and The Designers amongst numerous other independent fashion stores.

While most boutiques in Lahore pop up on the stretch better known as M M Alam Road and a couple are sprinkling over the new Mall of Lahore, Labels will be opening in DHA’s Y-Block. The commercial ring here already boasts various fashion houses like Karma, Amir Adnan and Maria B. Labels should be a welcome addition for Lahore’s upbeat middle class, most of which resides in this area.

“Labels in Lahore will open as a franchise operation,” Zahir Rahimtoola spoke to Images on Sunday, “and we will be sending out a selection of our best selling brands like Sanam Chaudhri, Chamak, Jannat and Sadaf as well as a couple of new players. We do think the Lahore market is big enough to absorb this plus Labels has a different personality and does not compete with the other multi-retail stores. We’re taking a lot of Karachi prêt into Lahore, which we think is the missing link.”

Nadya Mistry will also be stocking at Labels, Lahore he confirmed.

So all you people who felt that business was going to continue taking a hit under the global economic recession, rest assure that fashion is here to stay. Brand awareness is on the rise and wearing unbranded clothes to a wedding, for instance, is now considered as uncool as putting your hair in a scrunchie or banana clip. So here’s to Zahir Rahimtoola, hoping that he will launch in a big way in Lahore. Because while fashion sells best from trendy stores, the only way it show its full potential is to be seen on a runway!

Shaista Wahidi

Category: Ary Tvmansoor @ 12:35 am

Interview with Host of Good Morning Pakistan on Ary Tv – Dr Shaista Wahidi

Good Morning Pakistan’s host, Dr Shaista Wahidi speaks on the celebration of her show’s first anniversary.

Pakistan’s favourite television anchor Dr. Shaista Wahidi’s story starts off on a similar note as any urban girl in her country. The Shaista of yesteryear, in her own words, was a young woman who felt she had to compromise to please her family. From marriage and kids in her teens to studying for a lost cause, she became a non-practising doctor to keep up with her parent’s wishes. While this brought the reward of a happy family, destiny had other plans for the now famous TV host.

Out of sheer boredom during her time as a housewife Shaista decided to try her luck by entering a VJ contest for a local FM station. The experience was second to none and eventually helped shape her transition to television. Blessed with an abundance of talent, namely the gift of the gab, Shaista has managed to connect with her audiences at an altogether different level not seen on Pakistani television before. From the public to politicians, cricketers to celebrities, Shaista is undoubtedly the preferred choice of a nation, which is fast catching up to her mantra of positivity and hope.

As her flagship show, Good Morning Pakistan (GMP), celebrates its first anniversary. Dr Shaista reveales her innermost thoughts about her journey to stardom and beyond.

Tell us about GMP on ARY, which in one year has become one of their leading programmes. How has the journey been?

GMP is my baby and I am proud of leading it for a year. Yes, it’s challenging hosting and producing as this means looking after the content and participating in the overall planning of the show, but I am ably supported by my production team led by my senior producer Talat Raza. In our team, one thing is very clear that no one is the boss and we all have the right to be heard. It’s a culture I love at ARY and am glad the channel has helped me cultivate a similar environment in the team.

The show is unique because not a single day passes when we don’t receive calls from minister’s wives or affluent families wanting to contribute or help about a certain issue that was discussed on that particular day. It’s very touching because we have a responsibility to society and through GMP we have been able to establish a platform for people to connect and help.

Moreover it is my personal objective to empower the Pakistani woman who desperately needs a voice and practical advice in various facets of her life. We have had fantastic response for introducing new elements like career counselling, medical and skin care advice and summer camps and we intend to keep moving in this direction.

Do you consider yourself an inspiration to women?

I believe in substance. You see it’s not about being a woman or man, it’s about the individual. If you believe in yourself then it becomes a completely different story. The whole world starts to revolve around you once you gain that self confidence. I never wanted to be the usual complaining woman considering that is the most common image of a female in our society. On the contrary, I am a big fan of Rhonda Byrnes’, The Secret, in which the law of attraction states that when you want something you must start believing in it and practice it as if you have it. I have applied this to enhance the power of positivity which people say I resonate but if you ask me I just dislike negative thinking.

Today I can proudly say I am at peace with myself. Besides this discipline is vital, which includes working out and keeping fit to beat stress, being health conscious and eating right. Mind you, all of these don’t come without a strict routine. I was never like this but have evolved with time in order to pursue the goals I have set in my life. I guess it shows and perhaps this is why they look up to me.

Your following is equally popular with male audiences. According to a survey men find you the best looking and most pleasant host. What are your thoughts?

Well it’s a plus point. I am aware of the fact that I am good looking and you are on the money about men watching GMP because of the looks. I see no harm in men liking women on the face of it as long as they are not hypocrites like most men in our society. I am glad they have at least admitted it in that survey but will be happier if they openly talk about their reason for watching others or me on the show whilst sitting next to their wives.

Television is larger than life to those watching at home and hence we do work consciously on the looks and makeovers for all the segments and hosts. For example I work with my designer Ruby Shakeel and stylist Mahjabeen who are responsible for making me look the way I do on the show. At the same time I am known to be choosy as I don’t like wearing loud colours or busy prints.

Your most ardent admirers are politicians, cricketers and celebrities. According to them you are their favourite host because you bring the best out of them. What’s your magic touch?

When someone is invited on my show I make it a point that they are treated as our houseguests including politicians and cricketers who are mostly grilled in interviews. I am fully aware that people want me to take them on and it’s not that I don’t but I just do it in a way which is subtle and humane. One of my memorable interviews was with our current Prime Minister on the eve of his win. My entire focus was on humanising Yousaf Raza the person and not Mr. Gillani the prime minister. To my surprise it took him just one question to start talking about his fondness for Indian films and specially Ashwariya Rai who is an absolute favourite of his, so much so that he used to watch Ash’s movies during his days of imprisonment. Pakistan loved that interview and I got such great feedback even from the critics, which was a pleasant surprise.

The morning routine for the morning host

Firstly, I wish myself good morning before anyone else does. No matter how clichéd it is, my belief is that you must first learn to love yourself in order to love the world.

My husband is usually late home from work in the evenings as he’s a workaholic but we both make it a point to spend the last hours sharing and catching up. Therefore, I go to bed very late despite the fact that I rise by six every morning. Once I’m up, I look forward to my three precious gems Shaafay, Fayz and Eman. Every day is a beginning full of energy and positivity in my life. As soon as I step out of the house I do a 360° from a devoted mother and a wife to an ambitious producer and host with a responsibility to lead a show, which makes a difference in the lives of millions every day.

Catchingup: Back to Bindiya
by Uzma Mazhar

She pursued her dream in television and films despite her conservative family that had a hostile attitude towards her showbiz aspirations from day one. Bindya, the bold and beautiful artiste ruled the roost throughout the 1980s and well into the ’90s. Today, she is back in Pakistan with a bang after a long hiatus of some 14 years.

She left showbiz at the height of her career, disappearing mysteriously and not being initially missed. But as time wore on, questions were raised of her whereabouts and as all things come to pass, her memory too got lost in the annals of time. “As they say ‘I have been to London to see the queen and frightened a little mouse under the chair’! I had gone for a music show to the US, and since my son Jahanzeb was already studying there, I felt that he needed me so I stayed on. It doesn’t seem like 14 years have passed, rather it seems like I had been there just for just 14 days. Now I am back in Pakistan and ready for action,” said Bindiya when approached by Images on Sunday.
Q. So what made you make a comeback?

A. To tell you the truth, I had erased that part of my life from memory and broken off all contacts with the showbiz folk simply because I felt if I stayed in touch I would miss the limelight, my fans and the adulation. I was busy taking care of my son and working for US immigration as a translator in four languages — Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi and English. Then my son convinced me to pursue my real passion and sent me packing back to Pakistan. Eights months before coming here I decided to check out the media scene in Pakistan. I randomly called up TV stations as I wanted to make a comeback through PTV. The Lahore station got me in touch with Tariq Mairaj who came highly recommended. I called him up and he offered me his serial Sitarey and the role of a lifetime. Before saying yes, I requested him to send me the script. While going through the script I suddenly realised that I was going to Pakistan to do the play.

What is your role in Sitarey?

Sitarey is a 13-episode serial which will run on PTV towards the end of October. Mine is the lead role of an authoritative woman who runs a business empire. There are shades of grey in my character. The role is so good that I promise all my pervious work in TV, films and theatre will surpass it. The rest obviously lies with the viewers and the media feedback.

During your recent interview in the Nadia Khan Show some felt that the questions about your personal life put forth by the host were in somewhat bad taste. What do you think?

People have the right to say whatever they deem right, but I think Nadia has her own style and it takes a lot of guts and confidence to host a live show. Before the show, I had told her to go ahead and ask anything she wanted to. People assume that she is arrogant but I would say she is bold enough to ask personal or controversial questions, and I am bold enough to answer them.

My first husband was a pilot and no, he was not from Iran but from Jordan. For a while we stayed in touch through a common acquaintance then we simply lost touch. I kept getting news about him. One day I heard that he was killed in a plane crash and I bid goodbye to his memory. Suddenly, after 16 years I started getting letters from him and then one day he arrived at my doorstep with his new wife and kids whereas I had waited for him and never remarried. Seeing him with his new family left me totally speechless.

Then in the US, my son got me married to someone as he felt that that person would make me happy. But we parted ways after one-and-half years. If we cannot get along with each other doesn’t mean that we are bad people. He did not like me taking care of my son even though he has a daughter from his first marriage. It is not that we do not respect each other. As of now who knows, I may get married again if I find Mr Right.

Are you surprised that people still remember you after so many years?

I always thought ‘out of sight, out of mind’ as I left the field on my own terms and came back on my own. By God’s grace, I consider myself very lucky. I can see that people still love me. I guess as an actor I did do some good work.
Is Bindiya the person really that controversial, bold and bindaas and does this image effect her as a person?

I am honest, open-minded and I do not pigeon hole myself in my gender. I see myself as a person who is a multi-tasker and has many facets to her personality. Yes, I am bold but not in the way that I don’t care what people say. I don’t know when the image of being bindaas stuck to me.

My family was very conservative but my parents were open-minded to a certain extent. But not enough to allow me to be in showbiz. I was alone and rumours constantly kept popping up… it was very painful. Whatever I am today is because of my mother who supported me and my hard work. I have lived my life as a caring mother. I don’t care about gossip anymore. It’s like running water that just keeps on flowing.

After so many years what has changed in media in Pakistan?

I see an obvious change in the scenario but the fact is that I was called to work, I just did not land up like that. I am thankful to the whole team of Sitarey as it was a pleasure working with them. As for changes, there is no rehearsal or footwork. I call the productions of today bhagum daur productions as they are quick and fast. I have tried to gel in and just go with the flow.

What does the future hold for the long-missed and talented Bindiya?

I am waiting to see the feedback once the serial goes on air. Also after a good role, I am looking for more good stuff to come my way. As of now, I would love to work in television or films, even if the industry has gone to the dogs and there is one film made in 10 years. I also want to do my own productions and direct, but that will take time. I am on the road to launching myself again, but working as an actor for the time being. I am here to stay as long as people give me work and their love.

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.

Twitter: Shahid Nadeem gets PoF

Category: Articlesmansoor @ 8:47 am

It’s never too late, they say. The playwright with a sharp socio-political sense (and DMD Pakistan Television) Shahid Nadeem has been bestowed with President’s Pride of Performance for Literature.

The marked feature of Shahid Nadeem’s showbiz and literary career is the no less than 40 top-notch Urdu and Punjabi plays that he’s written. In a country where original scripts for theatre are a rare treat, his plays have been a source of inspiration for many. For television he has penned and produced critically acclaimed drama serials such as Neelay Haath, Zard Dopehar, Janjaalpura and Ghairat, apart from telefilms Choolah Aur Chaardeevari and Sahara.
Shahid Nadeem has produced documentaries on human rights issues as well, a couple for Amnesty International, and one of them was selected for screening at the South Asian Documentaries Festival in 2001.

Not many are aware that Shahid Nadeem’s plays have been included in the MA Punjabi syllabus in India. Recently Oxford University Press published a collection of English translations of his dramas. His association with the country’s foremost theatre group Ajoka as its executive director has also been exceedingly productive.

Humayun Saeed

Humayun Saeed: Master of his dream By Anis Shakur

Never before in modern Pakistani entertainment had one man risen so high so fast.

Within a short period of time, he became the awe and envy of the Pakistani public.
Below is an amiable look back at the life and accomplishments of Humayun Saeed.

Humayun was born into an enlightened family on July 27, 1971, in Karachi. Being the eldest amongst five brothers, his parents expected a lot from him.
As a child, he had a craze for movies. His favorite past time was to stand in front of a mirror and to fantasize being a film actor.
Though initially he seemed an ordinary kid, his zeal for acting set him apart from other children.
Such focused determination took that boy where he wanted to go-to the top.
In times due course, he successfully completed a bachelor of commerce degree.
Humayun stepped into the practical life as a production manager in a garment factory in Karachi. He stayed there from 1991- 1995.
By sheer determination, he drove himself forward.
As mentioned earlier, Humayun demonstrated an unusual aptitude for show business from his earlier days.
From 1995 onwards, he associated himself with Pakistani television. First he appeared as an artist in numerous television plays and drama serials.
Later, he started his own production, known as H.S. Production.
Side by side, Humayun also participated in modeling and fashion designing. Additionally, he also made his presence felt in the ‘Dalda’ advertisement.
If he has spared anything, then it must be imaginative enough to venture beyond his expertise. That scenario is highly unlikely. Considering Humayun’s enormous acting potential, brilliance and a very high I.Q.
A novice in television, Humayun was eager to learn and quickly mastered the techniques.
The first television play in which Humayun worked as an artist, was ‘Ye Jahan’.
He was famous for his looks, his etiquette and above all, for his impressive voice.
The masterpieces began to flow, as they would over several years. He received another boost in public awareness from more plays like ‘Farz Aik Qarz’, ‘Lahu say kar kay wuzu’ and ‘Waqt’.
Some of his television plays are an epic story of ordinary people trying to make it against all odds.
Humayun is as good as his word.
He was teamed up with Sania Saeed, Perveen Malik, Ghazala Butt and others, in the play, ‘Shayad Kay Bahar Aaye’. Producer, Sultana Siddiqui, director, Rana Sheikh.
Humayun is not just an artist, He is an event.
Who else can give us so much pleasure now and hopefully for years to come?
He brings out all his emotions in plays like, ‘Ghazi Shaheed’, ‘Aaj’ and ‘Zeher’.
Presumably, the carrot that keeps him motivated is the glory of performance.
Inching his way to stardom was like scaling a mountain to Humayun.
The public has seen him in numerous television plays. Each of them is a new inspiration for his adoring fans.
Humayun, who now enjoys an exceptionally huge devoted following, gave a superb performance in the plays, ‘Ye Zindigi’, ‘Bund Darwazay’ and ‘Unhoni’.
His loyal following grew so fervent in the recent past that his video and or DVD’s became almost like a most sought after item.
Humayun has successfully experimented with hundreds of television plays. Below are three such success stories:
‘Jang’, ‘Janay Unjanay’, ‘Peela Jora’.
If aficionados of Pakistani entertainment have any thing to say about Humayun, this is what it is: ‘You have our eternal gratitude for delivering such profound lessons in such easy ways’.
Below are three such lessons:
‘Kheil kheil mein’, ‘Doosri duniya’ and Ye ghari hai Milan kee.’
Undoubtedly, Humayun mania is for real. Debonair Humayun, who is six feet tall, is married to Samina.
He unleashed his power to succeed and came up with magnificent performances in the plays below:
‘Zindigi badalti hai’, ‘Kabhi kabhi pyar mein’, ‘The castle-Ik Umeed.’
With the passage of time, he learned much about friendship, teamwork and most of all, about himself.
Moreover, no statistics could measure the fame he achieved in the recent past. It increases with every passing day.
Smitten, Humayun finds himself pulled toward production. From ‘Humayun Saeed Production’, he has produced the serial, ‘Tum he to ho.’
Further, from ‘H.S. Production, Humayun has also produced long plays like ‘Pehli Khahish’, ‘Adhuray Khawab’, ‘Dil wo bay mehar’ and ‘Undekhi’.
He is a great talker with a reputation for wit. Through his plays, Humayun has had a tremendous effect across Pakistani social landscape, as well.
There was a cluster of distinctively Pakistani works, such as drama serial, ‘Jab jab dil milay’. Its location shooting was done in Malaysia.
Likewise, the drama serial, ‘Chahatain’, was also shot in Malaysia. ‘Chahatain’, executive producer, Samina (wife of Humayun Saeed) cast includes Humayun Saeed, Uzma Gilani, Vaneeza Ahmed, Atiqa Odho.
As the times have changed, so has Pakistani show business.
As for Humayun’s work, his acting just keeps getting better. He brought his valuable experience to the play ‘Unjanay raastay.’
The cast includes Humayun Saeed, Tazeen Husain, and Shafi Mohammad. Penned by Zeb Sindhi, director, Misbah Khalid.
Humayun also had an important role, which he played with dramatic effect, in the long play, ‘Farar’ with Mehreen Jabbar.
His portrayal of a cancer patient in the drama serial ‘Mehendi’ is unparalleled.
He is a fabulous actor-there is such vitality and imagery in his work.
By 2002, he was the most sought after artist of Pakistani television.
Consequently, directors and producers are in his debt.
In a recent interview, he spoke about his life. ‘People want me in the television plays’, he says, ‘and that is a lot to live up to.’
His personal flair, his love of music, dance and parties. His favorite dish is biryani and favorite color is black.
Humayun, at 32 years of age, has achieved so much name, fame and experience, that it is hard to believe.
To read about his exciting life is like watching a good movie that we did not want to end.
Humayun made his name in movies, as well. He debuted in the film ‘Inteha’, in which he was dubbed as an abusive husband.
He played the role of a prostitute in the film ‘No paisa no problem’.
The television and movie artists who inspired Humayun include, Talat Husain, Shabbir Jan, Shafi Mohammad, Rahat Kazmi, Nadeem and Waheed Murad.
Humayun was judged best actor for his performance in the television play ‘Ab tum ja saktay ho’, in 1996, for ‘The television Performance Awards.
He was judged best actor for his performance in the television – film ‘Zeher’ in 1996.
He was judged best actor for his roles in the plays, ‘Sawal’, ‘Umeed-e-Sehr’ and ‘Kankgan’.
He was judged best actor for his performance in the film ‘Inteha’ and he received ‘The Television Times Viewer’s Choice Award’.
In the year 2003, his competency and artistic skills are awesome and only improving.
Apart from his acting skills, Humayun possess a vast business experience in garments.
Hence, Humayun and his brother, Aamir, opened men’s boutique at Zamzama boulevard and an outlet at Tariq Road.
In Humayun, Pakistanis have received a gift even greater than other gifts, which one could have offered them.

Shakeel ( Yusuf Kamal )

Category: Actors,Ary Tv,Atv,Geo Tv,Hum Tv,Indus Tv,Ptv,Shakeel,Tv Onemansoor @ 1:24 pm

Shakeel: For the love of acting By Anis Shakur

Shakeel as Uncle Urfi

Shakeel as Uncle Urfi

Yusuf Kamal was born on 29th May 1938, in Bhopal, India, to a highly enlightened family. He shared the big world with his two younger brothers and a sister. Yusuf received his primary education in an English medium school, in the pre-partitioned India. Additionally, he also acquired education in a French missionary school in India.

Yusuf migrated to Karachi, Pakistan, along with his family in 1952. Young Yusuf had a flair for acting since his childhood. During his school days in Karachi, Yusuf regularly participated in the extra curricular activities. Soon after graduation, Yusuf made his presence felt in stage plays as well.

Yusuf Kamal changed his name to Shakeel and debuted in the 1966 film, ‘Honehar.’ Cast included Shakeel- Waheed Murad- Rukhsana- Tarannum- Kamal Irani. For Shakeel, the film ‘Honehar,’ was a challenge he met with ferocious gusto.

Shakeel’s first television play was ‘Naya Raasta,’ which was penned by Hasina Moin and telecast from Karachi television in 1971.

Essentially, Shakeel is a natural actor, who applies himself earnestly as a professional duty. Karachi television presented special Eid-ul-fitr play ‘Happy Eid,’ in the 1970s. Shakeel and Neelofar Abbasi, formerly known as Neelofar Aleem, came up with resplendent artistry and made ‘Happy Eid,’ a memorable play. In the final moments of the play, Shakeel wishes ‘Happy Eid,’ to Neelofar and she greets him with ‘Eid Mubarak.’ They looked right at each other and smiled. It was quite a smile.

The will to succeed is part of the Pakistani culture. Shakeel and Neelofar Abbasi teamed up again in Haseena Moin’s highly successful Karachi television drama serial, ‘Shehzori.’

You can do a world of good for yourself if you keep a steady course.

The above statement rings too true to Shakeel. Dwelling on Shakeel’s immense artistic prowess, ‘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.

Further, Shakeel achieved enduring fame in Haseena Moin’s mega hit drama serial, ‘Un kahi.’ Cast included Shakeel as Taimur, Shehnaz Sheikh as Sana Murad, Javed Sheikh as Faraz, Saleem Nasir as Sheheryar, Jamshed Ansari as Timmi.

Initially, Taimur did not tolerated Sana Murad’s demeanor. But Taimur’s father-in-law, played by Qazi Wajid, suggests, ‘Taimur, logoan kay chehray parha karo, ye duniya ki sub say dil chasp kitaab hotay hain.’ That changed Taimur’s perception of Sana Murad and he managed to see the sincere girl behind the confused Sana Murad.

Most importantly, Shakeel’s numerous roles always heighten the sweetness of living. ‘Uroosa,’ is another popular television drama serial of Shakeel. Cast includes Shakeel- Ghazala Kaifi- Adnan Siddiqui- Mishi Khan.

As the story unfolds, Shakeel divorced his first wife, Ghazala Kaifi. Mishi Khan, who plays the title role of ‘Uroosa,’ happens to be the daughter of Shakeel from his first wife, Ghazala Kaifi. ‘Uroosa,’ wins everyone’s heart through her etiquettes. She weds Adnan Siddiqui, who lives next door.

All the Pakistani television drama serials deal very well with Shakeel, who plays them splendidly. Shakeel is also famous for his social services. He was proactive during the recent earthquake in Pakistan. Likewise, he takes active participation in anti smoking campaign. Furthermore, Shakeel conferred awards to the winners in the most recent Pakistani television award ceremony held in Karachi.

In recognition of his enormous contribution to the show business, Shakeel won the pride of performance award in 1992. Shakeel’s is a long, healthy, prosperous life, and a life really well lived.

The other day, Shakeel attended a function. Tens of hundreds of devoted admirers gathered around Shakeel and said, ‘hum Aap ka yaad gaar tareen kirdaar, ‘uncle urfi,’ kabhi na bhool payein gey.’

Shakeel replied, ‘Thank you and good cheer to all.’ Then slowly he walked away and soon vanished into the crowd.
