Like their male counterparts, many of the Pakistani film actresses have created a Box Office presence which definitely helps a movie pull in a big number of audiences. Many of these actresses might go on to dominate the Pakistani Film Industry in the future as they are creating a mark for themselves in a premature film market.
Even though her solo Pakistani release “Dekh Magar Pyaar Se” bombed at the Box Office and was universally panned by critics and audience alike, Humaima’s presence in the film did help the film achieve a decent opening number. In a very competitive summer for the films in the Pakistani market, DMPS did manage to create a big hype and one of the main reasons was non other than the leading lady Humaima Malik. Although the script of the film let her down big time, Humaima still has a large enough following to attract an audience towards the cinemas.
It was a tough choice picking Armeena over so many other established actresses but this Pakistani-Canadian bombshell has attained so much success in a very limited time that she deserves her spot. Armeena was perfect for her role in “Bin Roye” and is generating a new fan base very quickly and thats not it. After her perfomance in Bin Roye, she has bagged more big films like “Yalghaar” and “Janaan”.
Thist versatile and talented actress truly deserves her spot on the list. After managing to create a big fan base as a VJ, Singer and Actress, Ayesha Omar was bound to make people flood the cinemas for her big screen debut in “Karachi Se Lahore”. Every commercial movie is designed to rope in a big chunk of the cinema goers and what better way to do that than by having an actress sing and dance on the Item Song and Ayesha Omar did that perfectly. KSL owes a lot of its success at the Box Office to this talented diva.
Mahira Khan is easily the most in demand actress in Pakistan right now. It’s safe to say that we might be living in the age of Mahira Khan as anything she touches turns to gold. Mahira was the leading lady in one of the biggest hits this year, “Bin Roye”. Mahira is now a big Box Office draw as her presence in a film can lead to big bucks for the film producers and when it comes to the Drama genre of a movie, a lot of women and families specially flock to see Ms. Khan in action and that is not a regular occurrence in Pakistan.
1.Sohai Ali Abro
And the winner is Sohai Ali Abro! What a phenomenal year it has been for this gorgeous diva. Sohai managed to be a part of two really huge hits this year with “Wrong No” and “Jawani Phir Nahi Ani” grossing some seriously big cash. Well one could argue that she didn’t have a full fledge roll in either of these movies but Sohai did perform on one item song for each of these movies which were responsible for creating a big pre-release hype for the respective films. Sohai managed to shine in each of her performances and is on the verge of becoming a recognizable face in a new and improved Pakistani Cinema.
