When I think about Nauman Ijaz, I still somehow think about Dasht. I was a kid at that time but I still remember the impact his role had on me even at a time when it was difficult for me to separate real and reel life of those characters and the actors playing those characters.
He has an eye for unique projects and its no wonder that soon his name got associated with the best projects. Be it Nijaat or the latest Dar Si Jaati Hai Sila, his performance is always impeccable. He has given hits after hits throughout his 3 decade long career. Whenever I watch him on screen I feel that he can’t do any better but surprisingly, he does even better in his next project. He has a flair for negative roles. You need to watch his serials like Rehai, Ullu Barai Furokht Nahi, Shayad and Dar Si Jaati Hai Sila. Among all his negative roles, he has somehow managed to transform himself with utmost ease into adorable Imran Bhatti of Jackson Heights too.
Over his 3 decade long he has won some awards too but his talent is above awards. He is so versatile that he can be nominated in any of the acting categories and still be able to stand out from all other actors nominated alongside.
Here is a list of some of my favourite drama serials that star Nauman Ijaz. I hope you will be giving them a chance too 🙂
- Mera Saeein
- Badi Aapa
- Jackson Heights
- Sang E Mar Mar
- Dar Si jati hai Sila
I might be forgetting some of his work. Please add to the list, if you think I have forgotten some of his good work.
