Sanam Jung

An acting career seems to be following a familiar track in both the major entertainment industries of the sub-continent. Whether it is Lahore or Karachi, or whether it is Bollywood, careers in modelling, Video or Radio jockeying, all these are now getting into a convergence pattern leading ultimately to acting in serials and films. Well, as far as Sanam Jung, the Pakistan TV actress is concerned; it has been a real mixed bag for her, although mostly centred on TV. Her versatility on TV is obvious from the fact that she has not just acted in notable roles, but has been the host of several very popular and thought provoking shows on Pakistani TV including the daily hosting of Hum TV’s extensively followed, “Jago Pakistan Jago”. Interestingly, for the same channel she has also acted in several widely acclaimed serials too. Her career, however, had started with the Aag TV Channel, where she was a Video Jockey for a short time, till the channel ultimately closed down. Thinking this to be the end of her career in show biz, she was lucky at that time to get an offer from Hum TV which not only allowed her to sustain he career plans, but in fact this association has really propelled her into limelight, first as a host and then as a sensitive actress, endearing her with her “girl next door” looks to a wide spectrum of her Pakistani fans. Her fans still remember her for her sensitive acting in serials like “Dil-e-Muztaar” and the more recent “Muhabbat Subha Ka Sitara Hai”.In spite of all the success and following that has come her way so far, she likes to be quite modest and not overdo it in anyway while flaunting her talents. This is the reason why she is choosy, especially about her selection of advertisement brands – believing more in quality and decency rather than on sheer numbers.This is also possibly the reason why she seems to have turned down offers from Bollywood, ignoring the temptation that many others from across the border have not been able to resist. Perhaps she felt it may impact on her hosting of her daily chat show “Jago Pakistan Jago”, or it may have been just her wish to shy away from too much publicity. We may not know the real answer to that as she is quite reticent to talk in her interviews.
