Rising stars: Six faces to watch out for

05:27 By Lollywood Online

Actors are a dime a dozen – but not every actor has what it takes to be a star.
So. what seperates the potential Fawads and Mahiras from the whozzits and whatsits? The rare combo of raw star power and acting talent..
Fortunately, the arrival of new breed of filmmakers has also brought in the debutante stars. These six actors have emerged as the ones to watch.

 Mohsin Abbas Haider 

Na Maloom Afraad
Mohsin Abbas Haider
An RJ at private radio station in Lahore and one of the geniuses behind political comedy show ‘Banana News Network’ on Geo, Abbas has that X-factor which makes him stand out. His deep masculine voice is a sign that he is a singer at heart and a passionate musician.
Since the promo of ‘Na Maloom Afrad’ was released Abass has been praised for his acting talent. His song ‘Sapno Ke Mala’ in the movie is a testiment to the fact that he is a brilliant singer too.  He is currently part of political satire show ‘Mazaq Raat’ on Dunya TV.

Omair Rana

Tamanna, Dukhtar, Chambaili
After sharing the screen with bigwigs like Salman Shahid the fact that Omair Rana managed to hold his own (and some say to steal the limelight) in ‘Tamanna’ is commendable. Although the film received a lukewarm response, Rana’s portrayal of struggling actor, Rizwan Ahmed was impressive.
A graduate of London School of Economics Rana is also an established theatre director and owns theatre company, Real Entertainment Productions which has produced more than 50 plays since its inception in 2000.

Saleha Aref

The child artist Saleha Aref is the highlight of Afia Nathaniel’s ‘Dukhtar’. Her character in the film was crucial as the whole film story revolves around her – a mediocre performance could mean disaster for the filmbut Aref ability to portray genuine innocence, wisdom and fear in the first ten made the audience connect with her character. We too wanted to protect her – just as Samiya Mumtaz did. Aref certainly has a knack for acting and in a year or two the young girl will be all set to give our leading actresses run for their money.

Ayaz Samoo

 021, Moor
Ayaz Samoo
Popularly known  for being a VJ/comedian Sajid Billa ARY Music  Samoo is now making for his big screen debut. We know him more as a stand-up comedian than actor – thanks to his participation in numerous comedy shows in India.
With big projects like Azaan Sami Khan’s spy thriller ‘021’ and Jami’s ‘Moor’ this guy is all set to make it big in the industry.

Armeena Rana Khan

Listed among the the top 10 most beautiful female models in the UK and top 50 most sexiest south Asian women in the world the dainty Armeena Rana Khan is making waves in the local industry with her subtle style statement and acting prowess. Although her Bollywood debut film ‘Huff, it’s too much’  was a dud on box office but the girl gets a lot of offers from the local industry – including a handful of endorsements and commercials. Currently her play‘Mohabbat ab nahi hogi’ is on air on Hum TV where she portrays a cute bhabhi.
Rana is will appear in Hassan Waqas Rana’s action thriller ‘Yalghaar’.

Hareem Farooq

Hareem Farooq
Islamabad based theatre actress Hareem Farooq came into limelight with Azfar Jafri’s horror flick Siyaah. In a role of young wife who cannot bear a child she impressed all and sundry – her perfect facial expressions gave a life to her on-screen character. Although currently she is busy in shooting for television serial but we want to see her on silver screen – as she possesses a glint of the perfect film heroine.
