Drama, my passion.

ImageStage for me is like a sacred place. I have loved drama and acting for as long as I can remember. It’s not just acting, its every tiny detail that comes with drama, from direction to production to music to costume. The bright lights, the vibrant costumes, new stories and new characters, I always found all this exciting even when I was a little boy. Drama helps me to discover my soul and it gives me a peace of mind, through drama I can let out all my emotions and thus free my heart and mind. The mere feeling that I’m a part of something so enthusiastic and energetic is great. My earliest memory related to drama is when I was 12 years old and was chosen to play the lead role in my class’s annual play. It was then that I first felt the thrill of the stage, the feeling was so amazing that I decided, then and there, that this was something I wanted to do all my life.


After that I took part in almost all the dramas and plays organized by my school and won several awards. With time everything about the art of drama began to consume me. I was not just a good actor but also excelled at production, direction and music. I was elected as Dramatics President of high school from 2009 to 2011. During this time I directed several plays including the school’s annual play. I also took part in different events on national as well as inter school level. Some of these events are Lums Dramafest, Olympiad, Colors and Humours, Grammmathon. For my performance in these events I achieved different awards like best production, best music, best direction, and best play. I am determined to take drama with me wherever I go and explore my capabilities in drama and theatre. To achieve the best out of my love for drama is my pursuit of excelling.



Projection of Turkish Dramas in Pakistan

Pakistani media that concentrates on acting is being watched to have been troubled of the developing rating of Turkish shows in Pakistan. The serials like Ishq-e-mamnoon, Aasi, Manahil or Khalil, Fatima Gull etc have earned massive reaction from our viewers and have created the disappointment of dramas in Pakistan. Then again, the disappointment of dramas and Turkish shows are direct following to the appearance of Turkish media dominion in Pakistan. Turkish shows are considered as focal purpose of level headed discussion in media since couple of months, it was watched that Pakistani serials had been successful because of the unbelievable victory of Turkish serials in Pakistan

The strong devaluation opposite Turkish serials is not just made by TV creators, executives and writers yet even an aggregation. They depict Turkish Dramas as opposite the society of Pakistan. It is surely real to recognize the fact of Turkish shows raising its communicational power in Pakistan what’s more this additionally teaching, planning, or more every last trace of the belief of secularism in Muslim social norms. The individuals of Pakistan are dividing in their tendency of conduct consistent with their ethnic society and its conduct consequently the loving of Turkish’s media stuff is resultant of it. apart the drama viewers have been enraged of Pakistan’s neighborhood dramatization serials in light of absence of variety in serials that might conceivably catch the eternal consideration and willingness of viewers.

Turkish dramas

They are not educated of specialized matters relating to media hence the level of drama serials are more than show-fiction and less than social message, it is likewise matter of gratefulness to the old serials of Pakistani media throughout 1960s, 70s, and late 80s. The nature of traditional serials began to decay with the rise of Islamism and fundamentalism majorly throughout Musharaf’s tenure. We need to acknowledge and recognize that media could not outfit the stuff such of the mentioned Turkish shows. Assuming that we do will to run the business media at defensive level, we need to think about some major adjustments and enhancement in show serials with the different social note and dispose of scripts and deficiently steered dramas.

People think that they are very familiar to Pakistani culture but this concept is totally wrong. Their costumes which are being used in these dramas, their story out line, their family traditions and many things which have been projected in these dramas are not familiar to our culture, norms and traditions. In the picture iven blow you can see the dresses which are not acceptable in our society. Moreover the last episode of drama Ishq-e-Manoon was projected in cinemas of Pakistan to continue the influence of these dramas in Pakistan.

Turkish dramatizations are controlled by profoundly qualified specialists and moreover extremely well mannered and conventional dialect is utilized within scripts signifying the qualities of living standard in Turkey and we need to get used to the same level of composition and making serials. The business and established dramatizations are full of societal reflection. The characters, scripts, planning and topic are obliged to be situated as far as making social acquaintance; so the dramas might as well refresh their scripts with a specific end goal for the standard of public order through their particular beat of work in media.

Pakistan’s business media is presently needed to render its ability to match the worldwide standard of dramatizations rather than maundering opposite different dramas as Ishq-e-mamnoon, Aasi, Manahil or Khalil, Fatima Gull and numerous more.

Pakistani Media: A never ending drama

Who wants to watch The Game of Thrones, Prison Break and other hit series when we have our very own media and its actors. Pakistani media provides you with hits through their headlines, scandals and some very entertaining talk shows that have become an addiction for many viewers of the country or even people living overseas. The actors are of course non-other than our “Leaders” who are paid to perform for an hour or so, on daily basis in front of the camera. The day of a normal Pakistani is incomplete nowadays if he/she forgets to watch Geo or other  News channel.


The leading talk-shows are:

  • Hamid Mir’s Capital Talk on Geo Television
  • Kamran Khan’s Aaj Kamran Khan ke sath
  • Kashif Abbasi’s Off the record
  • Yakeen by Sana Bucha

Have you ever thought of the fact that why these talkshows have conquered our prime entertainment time? I remember the time when Ptv and Stn were the only channels Pakistan had. In the primetime from 7 to 9 pm, there used to be a mind soothing entertainment. There were dramas that actually made you feel better and gave you a lesson which followed by a half an hour news. Now, its the age of “FREE” media. Every now and then, there is a news on television with a red tag line hitting your eyes. It is known that an excess of everything is bad, you realize it when you watch these news channels for like half an hour constantly. The same news is repeated more than a 100 times in just 2 minutes. They do it on purpose. They have to gather your attention and create chaos in your minds. I believe they have been quite successful in doing so. Arguing for like an hour on television on baseless topics, personal fights have actually gathered viewers interest. If in a talkshow, there is no fight and exchange of harsh words, it is not considered as a hit show. There has to be some chaos. People love chaos. Topics will never end, there are many things happening on daily basis but the point is they happen everywhere, but when you are on an international forum, you don’t have to post every news you hear. There are things that are better hidden than known. Ofcourse practical action should be taken, but cricticising and posting 24/7 is not right.


This drama has evolved for years now since the birth of these channels and we are pretty sure that they will continue until the end of time.
