Our guest this time around needs absolutely no introduction. For millions of followers worldwide Hina Bayat’s is a name synonymous with the best of all that Pakistani drama industry has to offer.
Hina’s performances in serials like Uraan, Tum Ho Ke Chup, Dareecha, Jalpari, Humsafar, Shehr-e Zaat, Mata-e Jaan, Talkhiyan, Aik Nayee Cinderella, Aunn Zara, Gar Maan Reh Jaye, Mera Naam Yousuf Hai, to name just a few, have all been widely appreciated and applauded. That she’s made her mark in a dramasphere where there is neither recognition nor scope for a female actor past a certain age, when she can no longer play the damsel in distress, speaks volumes of her talent and testifies to the hard work Hina puts in to make each of her characters stand apart, giving each a distinct look and mannerism.
Though she’s now more known for her acting, Hina started her career in the media as an anchor and a talk show host. In the late 1990’s Seema Tahir persuaded Hina to host Andaz Apna Apna on PTV World. Then followed other shows like Baatein Mulaqatein, Uljhan Suljhan and Geo Hina Ke Saath. Unlike the nonsensical talk shows nowadays these shows highlighted relevant social issues and drew attention to several such problems that we as a society would rather sweep under the rug. Hina’s foray into dramas began with Sultana Siddiqui on HUM TV in a small role in Jhumka Jaan, which was then followed by a more substantial role in Ishq Gumshada, and, as they say, rest is history.
It’s not just that she’s an intelligent host and a brilliant actor, what makes her stand out in a crowd is her graciousness, warmth, and humility. We here are privileged to include her as member of our DRNR family and it is, therefore, my pleasure and privilege to host this Q n A session with Hina Bayat.
While we’ve interacted with her several times on the blog, this is your opportunity to convey appreciation, give feedback and ask questions, the kind you’ve always wished somebody would ask. We know Hina is not just very honest and straightforward but also has a great sense of humor so koshish kar key avoid the usual morning show type thakey huey questions and ask interesting, hatke sawal takey mil saken mazedar aur masaledar jawab.
