Yasir was at his wittiest best when we at Fashion Times asked him for some details, “I ventured into direction as I was getting bad acting offers (chuckles). I am not comfortable in mouthing dialogues on a daily basis like I Love you, Mein Tumhe Talaak Deta Hun, Ammi App Abhi Tak Jaag Rahi Hai, Mai Tumse Nahi Nazia Se Pyar Karta Ho, Tameez Se Baat Karo and the list goes on and on. For me direction is new and fresh; I am simply loving it.”

He further added: “Koel has an interesting cast that features Fahad Sheikh, Mansha Pasha, Noor-ul-Hassan, Fareeha Jabeen, Yasir Taj, Maham Amir and Huma Mir. It is written by Zanjabeel Asim and produced by Farhan Gauher. Releasing under the banner of Emax production, it will air on Urduflix and Aaj Entertainment soon.”

What’s even more interesting about ‘Koel’ is the comeback of the legendary actress Huma Mir. She will return to the world of acting after a long hiatus of 15 years.


The leading actress Mansha Pasha also shared an exciting Instagram story.




For the unversed, Yasir Hussain is known for breathing life into characters. He discovered theater at the age of 16 and has never looked back ever since. A man with an unmistakably distinct and quirky personality, his work too has gained popularity for his unconventionality and eccentricity.
