It is usual for celebrity star kids to get overnight fame and recognition in showbiz for two reasons; first, they already have acting institutes at home to learn and perfect their acting skills in the form of their parents, second, they don’t have to struggle hard to find connections in the field for their first big break! Today, we are talking about the celebrity star kids of Pakistan and analyzing if they really have the talent and skills to deserve the fame they are receiving or it just came gift-wrapped to them from their celebrity parents.
Daughter of famous Seemi Raheel, model turned actress Mehreen Raheel is one of the frequently seen media faces. Mehreen is lucky enough to work in mega projects like Dastaan, Zindagi Gulzar Hai and the movie Virsaa. She is an amazing model, looks brilliant in hilarious Ufone commercials but as an actress, she still needs to prove her talent. Being an eye-candy and a tag of star kid isn’t always enough to get acknowledged as a good actor.
Misha & Faris Shafi
Celebrity siblings Misha & Faris Shafi developed an interest for the glamorous field of showbiz after witnessing the remarkable television career of their mother; the evergreen Saba Hameed. Misha is struggling to establish herself as a singer, she also worked in an international movie Reluctant Fundamentalist. Faris has appeared in various supporting roles here and there. Honestly speaking, he doesn’t have the same acting spark that his mother rocks, he definitely needs to groom himself a lot as an actor.
From the Cheeko of Shashlik to the Best Director of Humsafar, Sarmad Sultan Khoosat (son of Nigar Award Winner, Irfan Khoosat) has truly proved his diverse talent and versatility. He is an amazing director who always focuses on minute details making the play worth watching for the audience. His other prominent plays are Mera Yaqeen, Kalmohi, Shehr-e-Zaat, Pani Jaisa Pyar and Daagh.
Anwar Maqsood is a living legend, a multidimensional personality who wrote some of the finest PTV plays. The son (Bilal Maqsood) of this outstanding host, writer and comedian chose the field of music to earn fame and today we know him as the other half of Strings – the pop band! Strings is popular world widely, performs in numerous international concerts every year, contributed to Hollywood & Bollywood and had the honour to represent Pakistan in one of the cricket world cup finals too!
Shehzad & Momal Sheikh
Celebrity star kids of Pakistan, Shehzad and Momal are new entrants in Pakistani showbiz and quickly gaining popularity due to their good looks and association with famous Pakistani celeb Javed Sheikh. Honestly speaking, none of the acting projects they have done till date justifies all the fame and importance they are receiving. I have yet to find a person who likes the acting of these siblings, but, for some reasons they still continue to appear in leading roles one after the other.
We have seen him performing in Qaid-e-Tanhai with the megastar cast Faisal Qureshi, Sawera Nadeem, Saba Hameed, Neelam Munir and others, there is something extraordinary about the acting of this kid, he appears very calm, natural and right in his character on screen. Zorain Nizamani has inherited acting from none other than our star couple Qaisar Nizamani and Fazila Qaiser, he definitely should appear in more TV projects, once he complete his education.
Abid Ali’s daughter, Eman Ali is an acknowledged model, TV and film actress. She has done a couple of TV plays with her father including Armaan. Other than being a brand ambassador of many multinational companies, she has two blockbuster movies, Khuda Ki Liye and Bol on her credit as well. For her tremendous performance, she won two back to back Lux Style Awards in 2007 & 2008. A well justified success and fame!
Nida & Sawera Pasha
Celebrity siblings, Nida Yasir and Sawera Pasha are daughters of dynamic Kazim Pasha. Nida entered in the field of showbiz as an actress but took a break after getting married to Yasir Nawaz. Her comeback in the field was as a live show host, she had been associated with ARY Zauq and now hosting Good Morning Pakistan on ARY Digital. Sawera is associated with GEO Sports as a host, has performed in a play Hum Tum with her sister as well.
