Acting isn’t just about saying your lines right, it’s a test of patience: Ahsan Khan


LAHORE  : The ever polite Ahsan Khan may have been part of the Pakistani showbiz industry for well over a decade now but he is still without the airs of a grizzled veteran.

The actor is as charming in person as he is on screen; his work in projects like the super-successful Udaari and full-length feature film Ghar Kab Aao Gay bear testimony of his talent.

Ask any director and they’ll tell you that it takes a special someone to make the audience adore them in a negative role. With Udaari, Ahsan – who played a child molester in the serial – did just that. He may not have played the character of the blazing, charismatic hero but for him, it is the depth and substance of a character that counts.

Udaari was a great but very, very tough experience for me because of the script. When I first read it, I just knew it was going to be something special and the story just needed to be told,” Ahsan told The Express Tribune. “I worked very hard for my character; I wanted to make sure that the message of the serial reached everyone, that the taboos around it are broken. Udaari became a game changer of our industry because no one else had done anything like it.”
