Sana Nawaz Vulgar Dance Faisal Qureshi Morning Show
After a three-month chase, I finally met Faisal Qureshi on the sets of a play, the title of which has not been finalised yet. As I sat waiting for him in a small room, he was doing a scene in the other room where he was yelling at someone on top of his voice.
Moments later, Faisal appeared, dressed in a shiny shalwar kameez and sporting his trademark boyish grin, hair in waves, sans the ‘Bashar beard’ and moustache. He settled down with a cigarette, requesting one of the fellows around him for green tea. Smoking? Wasn’t he a health and fitness freak? “Aik he to buri aadat hai,” he said with a twinkle in his eyes.
Between the chubby Boota to the dangerous-looking Bashar, Faisal has performed in a few short of a hundred TV plays, won awards and accolades, has judged a dance competition, hosted shows, breezed through Muskurati Mornings and (literally) donned another hat to sell toilet bowl cleaner with equal charisma and ease. With 22 years in showbiz up his sleeve, this most versatile actor of his time is everywhere … maybe even over-exposed?
