Mohsin is going to debut in drama



Pakistan’s well-known actor and singer Mohsin Abbas Haider is going to make his TV drama debut with Muqabbil. The actor will join with his co-star, Kubra Khanum, from the hit Pakistani movie Na Maloom Afraad for this initial in his career.

The drama is penned by Zafar Mairaj and directed by Ali Hassan. Mohsin is cast in a quite serious role and it illustrates that Mohsin, at last, going to wrap up his funny man habit.

Mohsin explained his role as “The best thing about this drama is that for the first time in my 10-11 year career, the audience will see me in a role that isn’t loud or hyperactive. I play a very sober, sambhala Hua (composed) person in Muqabbil.


He further added by saying that “People don’t expect this kind of acting from me, but honestly, this is how I’d like to act. I hope I haven’t got the stamp of a non-serious, funny guy, and if I have, I hope to change that perception, and show my other side, my real side, through Muqabbil.”

It was further inquired that why he took many years to debut in dramas and his reply was as “I used to get offers for drama serials in the past as well, but due to [my daily gig at] Mazaaq Raat, I wasn’t able to make time for them. I only did a few telefilms that would wrap up in a few days.”


He further elaborated “Now that I felt that I should take acting more seriously, I decided to step foot into our thriving drama industry because there’s no better place to explore one’s acting potential.”

Mohsin also told that “I talked to the Mazaaq Raat team, and they gave me the leeway to balance both projects together. So here I am.”
