AHSAN KHAN THE MAN OF MANY TALENTS A hsan Khan, the man with the most dreamy eyes in the industry, is known and loved by all. He started his career in 1998 and there has been no turning back. The British-Pakistani actor is known for his versatile acting and charismatic personality. Ahsan Khan is a Jack of all trades. He dances, he sings, he acts and is a social activist. He has worked on issues like child abuse, which was touched upon in his latest hit drama Udaari, where he portrayed the character of a child molester Imtiaz. He is now producing TV dramas and will be working in a movie soon. This year, Ahsan Khan has bagged many awards for his repulsive pedophilic character in Udaari. The drama has been a pioneer to raise such sensitive issues via a medium known and watched by the masses. Ahsan Khan’s character in Udaari has been the most talked about lately and Paa Imtiaz has had a love-hate relationship with the audiences. It takes a special person to portray a negative role and make the audience fall in love with it – Ahsan Khan did just that. 2017 has marked his entry into the post-revival cinema movement. He is all set to explore the lighter comic roles this year, which includes his upcoming projects ‘Rehbra’ with Ayesha Omar and ‘Chupan Chupai’ with Neelam Munir. With over two decades under his belt, Ahsan Khan holds quite a diversified portfolio. He made his film debut in 2001 with Ghar Kab Aao Ge, an action film, alongside Shaan, Babar Ali, Saima and Meera. Furthermore, he also appeared in films like Billi (horror film), Ishq Khuda (Punjabi film) and Dil Mera Dharkan Teri (romantic-drama telefilm). He has acted in many TV shows which include, Saiqa, Pani Jaisa Pyaar, Mere Qatil Mere Dildaar and Mata-e-Jaan Hai Tu to name a few. Ahsan Khan is more than just a boy-next-door in the industry. Along with being an ace actor, he is one of the most humble, polite person you would meet in the Pakistani entertainment industry.
