A Model-Turned-Actress Still at the Peak of her Performance; Sadia Khan!
Sadia Khan is a name that needs no introduction. The star has made sure she leaves an impression on the audiences with her charming on-screen persona and acting mettle both in the world of modeling and acting. Famed for one of the top performances of her career in Khuda Aur Mohabbat, this starlet has a lot of achievements under her name, and that isn’t all that makes her special.
Starting her career with modeling, this actor-turned-model was destined to be more than just a model. Launched in 2011 in various dramas and ramps, Sadia Khan’s personality and talent have been rather irrepressible. She’s covered countless magazines, starred in numerous dramas, modeled for Pakistan’s biggest brands; in short, there isn’t any territory the actress hasn’t explored. Not to mention, she has made one of the more successful model-to-television and movie star transitions in the Pakistani entertainment industry, like her magnetic performance in Khuda Aur Muhabbat (2011), Naina Syed in Laa (2014), Umm-e-Hani in Shayad, (2017) and Maryam in Maryam Periera (2018). Khan also appeared in a film which is Abdullah: The Final Witness (2016).
But let’s not forget that she was—still is—a unique and remarkable model, as we were all reminded by her triumphant shoots for brands including Khaadi, Sapphire, Gul Ahmed, Sana Safinaz to posing for various other brands. She was the brand ambassador of Khaadi for 3 years, and the brand ambassador for Ufone for more than 2 years. Sadia Khan was modeling from an early age, spending her teens posing for photographs. She then made it as an actress, filling her resume with unconventional and unique roles. The triple threat performer is not only an actress and a model, but also a singer and songwriter. Is there anything that this star can’t do? We don’t think so.
