A girl born in London, UK and pursuing her career in Pakistan sounds great. yeah! And I adore her. She is pretty close to perfect!
Sanam Saeed, a Pakistani beautiful actress, and former model started modeling at the age of 16 as she was a career oriented person and very much passionate about her profession. Furthermore, she stepped into her acting career with a supporting role in the 2010 ARY Digital serial, Daam as an adaption of Umera Ahmad’s novel.
The following year she played the lead female role in Hum TV serial Mera Naseeb. Her portrayal of Shazia, an outspoken, and rebellious girl, was particularly praised.
Sultana Siddiqui’s romantic drama and the most favorite drama of the viewers around the world Zindagi Gulzar Hai was Saeed’s next serial. She was cast as Kashaf Murtaza, a very sensible and matured girl comes from a middle-class family background marked a departure from the glamorous characters that she had a reputation for portraying. The pairing of Saeed with Khan resulted in the hype over the drama aired and it proved a major commercial success. She earned 3 Awards as Best Actress.
Saeed next played opposite Junaid Khan in the 2013 mystery drama Kadoorat aired on Hum TV from Momina Duraid. Her role was Minah, who take revenge from her step-mother and step-sister and later felt guilty. Then in 2016, she was seen in four Pakistani films. She made her film debut in Nasir Khan’s romantic thriller Bachaana with Mohib Mirza. She then appeared in the movie Dobara Phir Se, which earned her an award for Best supporting actress (film) at the 16th Lux Style Awards.
She appeared as the younger sister Zara, in critically acclaimed film Cake. Reviewing the film for The Express Tribune. Then Sanam’s back to a stellar start in 2018, that with mini-series ‘Aakhri Station’ catapulting her back as one of the best we have. That time she spoke about female empowerment in Pakistan and urged change.
The moment I saw ‘Zindagi Gulzar Hai, and Aakhri Station’ my fascination was not just to Sanam’s character Kashaf. I fell for Sanam in all entirety, from her acting to her grace and poise off-screen. She’s been a pretty low-key person for the longest time.
