Faysal Qureshi (Fitoor)


One can’t ignore the star power of Faysal Qureshi. The actor impressed one and all with his stellar act in ‘Fitoor’. He silenced his critics; and proved that class is permanent. Viewers were mesmerized by Qureshi’s portrayal as (Haider) giving us a wholesome sense of a multi-layered character; from being dumped by his girlfriend to a mature husband, his wonderfully calibrated performance was pitch-perfect. The actor made a meal of his part; his smoldering eyes emoted effortlessly. The dilemma of emotional turmoil was brilliantly displayed by Faysal in ‘Fitoor’.



Shehzad Sheikh (Phaans)


Shehzad Sheikh is the dark horse of the showbiz industry. His strong acting chops and magnetic presence in ‘Phaans’ made him stand out. Portraying the role of (Sahil) an individual suffering from Down Syndrome was quite challenging. Stealing the show in almost every scene and that too in a multi starrer is no mean achievement. Also, his on-screen chemistry with Zara Noor Abbas was organic. Shutting down all the accusations of nepotism, Shehzad was excellent, sincere, and showed immense growth as an actor.
