Highly Under-Rated Artists

Showbiz industry of Pakistan is blessed with skillful actors and actresses. Some of them have the talent to play their respective roles brilliantly without making much effort, while others being equal better entertainers, doesn’t get such recognition as them.

Here we have mentioned some names who we watch on our tv screens frequently in challenging roles but still, their work has not highlighted as much as it should have been.



One of the prominent “Khan” in Pakistan’s television industry and has been ruling the public’s hearts with his commendable characters and entertaining the audience in the best possible way. Mansoor Aslam Khan Niazi, known as Sami Khan, has not stopped himself on the small screen but successfully established himself on the big screen too.

Sabz Pari Laal Kabootar, Do Qadam Door Thay, Bashar Momin, Khudgharz, Aisi Hai Tanhai, Ishq Zah-i-Naseeb, Saraab, Tou Dil Ka Kiya Huwa, Muhabbat Daagh Ki Soorat, Phaans, Inkaar, Mohlat, and at present on -air Dil Zaar Zaar , are the projects in which each character of Khan is different from another but he had done justice with every role.

The hardworking star is one of those who has not been an active user of social media and unable to keep constantly updated their fans about work or share personal activities, as they give more priority to their profession rather than the secondary things and that is why they can be seen most of the time on our tv screens.

Earlier, artists who were good at what they did were taken on board but unfortunately, nowadays due to the social media influence actors are being lauded based on numbers of fan following instead of their suitable work.

Being an excellent and experienced artist, Faris from TDKKH should be considered one of the leading artists in the entertainment industry.



He is one of those actors who has truly marked himself as one of the greatest actors of all time. The vocalist of the rock band “Call Junaid Khan knows the art of the transition from role to role and has performed adequately according to the character’s demands in his projects.

Yahan Pyar Nahin Hai, Kadoorat, Bin Roye, Sun Yaara, Silsilay, Ishq Tamasha, Khasara Kamzarf, Yaariyan, Kashf, Muhabbat Na Kariyo, Berukhi, Khuda Aur Muhabbat 3, Hania and the Ramazan special drama Hum Tum are the serials which have boost the career of Khan. Transitioning from the austere, credulous, admiring, and abusive roles into the character of a pure light-hearted comedy play was a challenge for him, as he is not associated with comedy a lot and the viewers have not seen him in this kind of persona before too. However,  Sarmad Sultan aka Junaid Khan has conducted it amazingly and impressed us.

Junaid Khan is among those who have made their place in the entertainment industry with his talent and proven himself. He has managed to keep himself away from controversial gossip, put his focus on the target, and has been working on many fronts. Indeed he deserves every bit of attention.



Not as famous as Feroze Khan but knows how to steal the audience’s attention with his outstanding performance. He has successfully made a television and film career and is known for his role in Daam, Mata e Jaan Hai Tu, Mera Naseeb, Mora Piya, Shukk, Muhabbat Subh Ka Sitara, Jackson Heights, Aaakhir Kab Tak, Ho Mann Jahan & Dobara Phir Se. Whether it is a negative, positive, or grey he knows how to pull off each character. Adeel Hussain is one’s true star that the local film and drama industry can count on in the coming years. Despite his substantial work in films and television, he is severely underrated and deserves far more screen time than he’s given. 



An elegant, attractive, and yet talented actor Rabab Hashim is another addition to the most underrated celebrities of Pakistan. She is one of the most polished actress and has been seen in popular dramas like Na Kaho Tum Mere Nahin, Zid, Piya Man Bhaye, Anaya Tumhari Huwi, Ishqaway, Tumhaarey Hain, Kamzarf, Qarrar, Mannat & Angna still she’s less recognized and appreciated for her incredible work. Apart from her beauty, she made the audience believe in her acting and entertained them with her praiseworthy projects.



One of the few celebrities who have proven their skills through acclaimed movies along with dramas. Mansha Pasha is a renowned personality. Being a part of the showbiz industry, she has been working for a long time but still considered in the list of underrated actors.

Zara Aur Mehrunisa, Muhabbat Subh Ka Sitara, Aangan, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Shehr e Zaat, Khudgharz, Tou Dil Ka Kiya Huwa, Muhabbat Tujhe Alvida, and recent serial Koyal are the projects that can be considered landmarks in Pasha’s career. Her brilliant role in Laal Kabootar made us realize that she doesn’t get the attention she should get.



Talented actor Ali abbas, who has established himself, has not gotten into the limelight despite working diligently. His range has no comparison, be it in a villainous, heroic, or side role, the actor has redefined himself multiple times.

Ali Abbas has given major hit dramas with his flawless acting skills.

Ladon Main Pali, Tum Kon Piya, Nazr e Bad, Khaali Haath, Ghar Titli Ka Par, Kahin Deep Jalay, Deewangi, Meharposh, Mere Apne, Wafa Be-Mol, Fitrat & Ghisi Piti Muhabbat are the projects that boost his career

In the currently aired play Badzaat, with phenomenal acting, he has become succeeded to won millions of hearts yet again. Undoubtedly, while being super understated, he has managed to carve his space in the industry better than anyone else.
