Nadia Afgan - Career

Nadia Afgan began her acting journey at PTV Lahore Center, initially hosting talk shows and nighttime transmissions for PTV during her early years. Her comedic roles in PTV’s sitcoms, including “Family Front,” “1 2 3,” and “Hubahu,” garnered recognition in the late 1990s and early 2000s. However, her breakthrough came with her portrayal of Mishi in Sarmad Khoosat’s directed series “Shashlik.”

During the early 2010s, she showcased her versatility by taking on dramatic and tragic roles in series such as “Bilqees Kaur,” “Shehr-e-Zaat,” “Dil Muhallay Ki Haveli,” and “Sannata.” In 2016, she expanded her involvement by directing and appearing in A& B Entertainment’s production “Shaam Dhaley.” The following year marked a significant milestone as Afgan received her maiden award nomination, a Hum Award for Best Supporting Actress, as an orphan nurse in the collaborative efforts of Noorul Huda Shah’s writing and Saife Hassan’s direction in “Sammi.”

2018 proved to be a turning point in her career. Her portrayal of Shahana Batool, a quintessential Punjabi mother, in Saima Akram Chaudhry’s written Ramadan special “Suno Chanda,” earned her widespread acclaim and numerous accolades. Simultaneously, she ventured into directing, launching “Parlour Wali Larki” on Bol TV, centred around the dreams and aspirations of two small-town girls.
