Dur-e-Fishan Saleem is a young and educated actress who is new to the industry yet won millions of hearts with her natural acting. Her notable performances include ‘Bharaas,’ ‘Pardes’ and ‘Juda Huway Kuch Is Tarhan’. She began her showbiz journey in 2019 with drama serial ‘Dil Ruba’ opposite Hania Amir. Despite being a supporting actress, her acting was highly praised. After making her performing debut as a supporting actress, Dur-e-Fishan began showing in lead roles in hit serials – ‘Bharaas’ and ‘Pardees’ (2021). Dur-e-Fishan has a long way to go and we wish to see her become a diva one day.
Madiha Imam is a VJ-turned-actress and television host. She is known for her roles in ‘Heer’ and ‘Dhaani’. She made her film debut with ‘Dear Maya’ in 2017. Imam is one of those actresses who completely transform themselves to fit into the characters they play. Her performances in dramas such as ‘Mera Rab Waris’, ‘Woh Mera Dil Tha’ and web series ‘Ek Jhooti Love Story’ showed that she can truly make her presence felt even in the most simple roles. In ‘Ek Jhooti Love Story’ Imam has just the right amount of innocence to play Salma who is sweet, innocent and naïve, but also harbors moments of resentment and low self-esteem. Imam is perfect casting here, not only fitting the mold of a college girl turned newlywed, but also enacting the role convincingly. We would like to see Imam in more convincing roles in future.
Wahaj Ali is a fine actor who has gradually made a mark for himself in showbiz industry. He first worked as an assistant director.
