Imran Ashraf is one of those actors who did not need any introduction. He is one of the fine actor of Pakistan’s Television industry. He proved himself by playing multiple versatile characters, like, transgender in Alif Allah aur Insaan, Azhar in Dil Mom Ka Diya, Sunny in Lashkara, Dastageer in Dil Lagi, Ashar in Gul-e-Rana and many other characters,
Now, in Ranjha Ranjha Kardi, a drama written by Faiza Iftikhar and directed by Kashif Nisar, Ashraf plays Bhola – a not so typical boy either. Ashraf has been receiving unanimous praise for it but when I asked him about it, he was his usual, humble self. “I had no idea I would get this sort of love and appreciation,” he told in an interview.
While talking about his character ‘Bhola’ he said “I’ve just seen many Bholas around and sometimes, such characters stay with me, in my head,” Ashraf said. “I do have a process though: before starting to shoot, I kind of told myself I was born Bhola. This is who I am. And that’s how I performed it.”
While responding a question about his involvement in characters, he reveled “They come home with me and stay. I can’t leave them when someone yells ‘cut’. Some of them have, I think, managed to stay with me forever.” In response to a question about survival in industry he said? “Even the good-looking heroes face difficulty,” he responded. “That’s just the nature of this field. When it comes to being good-looking, it’s important because you need people to like you. But eventually, when it is about acting, what’s more important is whether you can deliver or not. I face difficulty not because of how I look but because how I’ve risen from a very ground level.” And I’m more than happy to take on this struggle.”
So what’s next for Ashraf? “I’ve been offered all kinds of roles right now, by the Grace of God,” he replies. “For the past one or two months, I’ve been offered main leads and negative leads. I’ve done a lot of positive, good boy roles in the recent past so I think I want to do something negative now.”
Imran started his career in 2011. He has gained recognition and critical acclaim with dramas such as: Dil Lagi, Alif Allah Aur Insaan and Dil Mom Ka Diya.
