Pakistani drama and film industry is booming once again. We are getting super hit dramas and films one after another. One factor, in this exponential rise of the entertainment industry, is the new incredibly talented and gorgeous Pakistani Actresses.

I feel Mahira Khan gets too much of the spotlight; others need to be acknowledged as well. So here are 4 Pakistani actresses other than Mahira Khan that have given a boost to Pakistani entertainment industry.

P.S. This is not a rating, I am just writing them down in random order.

1 – Armeena Khan

A Pakistani-Canadian, UK based actress; started her career as a model when she was in high school. She first appeared in a Pakistani drama ’’Shab-e-Arzo ka Aalam’’ in 2013. The drama wasn’t very successful, but she did get fame courtesy to her beauty.

As you can see here:

She has dramas like “Muhabbat Ab Nahi Hugi”, “Ishq Parast”, “Karb”, “Bin Roye” and “Rasm E Duniya” to her credit. Amreena made her debut on the Pakistani “big screen” in 2015 from the film “Bin Roye”. Since 2015, we have been seeing her in Pakistani movies every year, “Janan” in 2016 and now “Yalghar” in 2017, each of them being massively hit.

Prior to these, she appeared in a one Hindi movie and one British movie too, “Huff! It’s too much” and “Writhe”, respectively.

She is also has a distinct honor of being the first Pakistani actress who got to walk in Cannes Festival. Armeena is also the recipient of numerous national and international awards.

2 – Saba Qamar

Saba Qamar Zaman is a gorgeous Pakistani actress who joined the industry in 2005 from the drama “Mei aurat hon”. She received critical acclamation for her role, and since then, she has been admired and glorified and hence is one the highest paid actresses in the industry.

She is known for her unconventional roles, like that of Zainab in “Bint-e-Adam”. Likewise, “Mishal” from “Besharam” and Dania from “Bunty I Love You” are her most adored roles. These days, she’s is getting a lottttt of praise for her role as Fouzia Batool, a.k.a Qandeel Baloch, in the drama “Baaghi”.

Her acting was absolutely phenomenal in “Baghi”.

She tried her luck in both Pakistani films and Indian films. Her performance in the biographical movie “Manto”, as Noor Jehan, was outstanding. Saba’s role in “Lahore sey Aagey” was also received very well by the public. And her role in the Indian movie, “Hindi Medium”, also gathered praise all over the subcontinent.

Who doesn’t remember her role as a host of a satirical sitcom; “Hum Sab Umed Sey Hain”?  We knew then that she has some strong comedy and mimicry genes in her DNA.

Saba, being versatile and brilliant, is a well-deserved recipient of many awards including Nigar Award from the Government of Pakistan.

3 – Sajal Ali

This beautiful young face joined the Pakistani drama industry at the age of 15 in 2009 from a sitcom; “Nadaniyan”, but got famous by her second drama “Mehmoodabad ki Malkayain” in the same year.

No one in the world can look as innocent as Sajal Ali. She is just the most innocent and cute looking face that you will ever see.

After Nawaz Sharif of course: “pata nahi kyun nikal dia ha usse.”

That cuteness and innocence coupled with her absolutely brilliant acting have won her many fans.

Sajal has appeared in various hit dramas including, “Merey Qatil Merey Dildar”, “Nanhi”, “Gul-e-Rana” and many others including; Yaqeen ka Safar that has reached the height of success. Her telefilm, “Behadd”, got immensely popular because of her incredible acting.

She has also appeared in the Bollywood movie, “MOM”, alongside Sridevi whom Sajal calls her spiritual MOM.

As you can see I chose her picture as the cover photo, I LIKE her very much.

4 – Kubra Khan

She started modelling at the age of 18 for an international brand in the UK. In 2014, the comedy-thriller, “Na Maloom Afraad” introduced the gorgeous and talented Kubra Khan in Pakistani entertainment industry.

Her fame skyrocketed with her appearance in “Sang-e-Mar Mar”, and now she is seen in many dramas like, “Khuda aur Muhabbat” and “Shadi Mubarak Ho”.
