Aamina Sheikh - Career

Upon her return to Pakistan, Sheikh secured a position at Geo Television, where she assumed the roles of director and producer for the children’s talk show “Bachey Man Ke Sachey.” Her on-screen debut occurred in 2007 when she appeared in Sharjil Baloch and Khalid Ahmed’s telefilm, “Gurmuch Singh ki Waseeyat,” an adaptation of Saadat Hassan Manto’s novel, “The Will of Gurmukh Singh.” Subsequently, she gained international acclaim as a spokesperson for the renowned French beauty brand L’Oreal.

In 2008, Sheikh featured in three prominent telefilms: “Aasmaan Chu Lay,” “Pachees Qadam Pe Maut,” and “Baarish Mein Deewar.” In “Aasmaan Chu Lay,” directed by Syed Ali Reza, she portrayed a determined rickshaw driver aiming to provide for her family single-handedly. Her preparation for the role included learning to drive a rickshaw on Karachi’s bustling M.A. Jinnah Road and Garden Area, with a substantial camera attached, and attracting actual passengers. That same year, Sheikh made her debut on the runway at Rehana Saigol’s fashion show.

Personal Life

Sheikh tied the knot with actor Mohib Mirza in Karachi during a grand three-day celebration spanning from April 30 to May 2, 2005.

In a candid interview with Jang, Mirza recounted the challenging task of seeking Sheikh’s father’s approval, which required enduring extensive scrutiny during every encounter.

The couple welcomed their daughter, Meissa, into the world in 2015. Unfortunately, their journey took a different turn, and they announced their separation in 2018, finalizing their divorce in 2019. Sheikh found love again and remarried a businessman in August 2020.
