Wahaj Ali wins hearts with Ehd-e-Wafa

Published

on

Wahaj Ali’s name easily makes it to the list of most sought after new faces of Pakistan’s television industry. He is tenacious, hard-working, and one of those rising stars that are ready to go the extra mile for a character. It also helps that he has the good looks and onscreen persona to become the next heartthrob of the nation. After starting with supporting characters, Wahaj moved on to starring in lead roles in prominent shows in a short period. He gave excellent performances in shows like Haiwan, Hari Hari Churiyan, Dil-e-Bereham, and Mah-e-Tamam, to name a few.

Wahaj’s breakthrough role came with Shariq in Hum TV’s Ehd-e-Wafa, one of the most talked-about shows of the year. Shariq is a college student with hopes, dreams, and ambitions. He is someone who wants to make a difference rather than follow in other’s footsteps. Shariq is friends with Saad, Shahzain and Shehryar, the other three central characters. The show revolves around them and explores life in college and beyond. Wahaj’s chemistry with the other guys is one to watch out for. It will remind you of your college friendships and their memories. Shariq manages to hold onto your attention despite the several characters.

Another arena where Wahaj shines is the way he presents the two different phases of Shariq’s life. He gets the mannerisms and language of a young, carefree student. He convinces you that he is a guy who wants to have some fun with his friends while they can. At the same time, Wahaj also makes you believe that he is a journalist who stands by his principles. He doesn’t let his modest background get in the way of moving forward in life. He is brave, steadfast, and a firm believer in justice. He raises his voice on occasions when he has to and is relentless when he knows he is right. He delivers his dialogues convincingly and never falters in any of his scenes.

There’s a certain earnestness with which Wahaj portrays Shariq. He is relatable, likable, and someone who you want to support. You root for him when he is in trouble. You smile with him as he smiles and says something funny. Your heart breaks when he is sad. Wahaj is exceptional in emotional scenes. His expressions and timing are excellent in every sense of the word.

Apart from his scenes when he is with the other guys, one scene that stole the show was when his sister hits him. Wahaj’s performance deserved brownie points for that and many other scenes during which he truly puts his acting chops on display.

Wahaj Ali succeeded in making Shariq a believable character, someone who will always be there for his family and his friends. Because of Wahaj’s acting, Shariq is the standout character of Ehd-e-Wafa and will surely be missed. We can’t wait to see what this talented and promising actor does in the future.

Published

on

Canadian Pakistani CEO and motivational speaker Muneeb Mushtaq has given us many insightful and empowering thoughts over the years on the basis of his experiences as a young and dynamic businessman. The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.

Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:

 

  1. Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life

 

Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!

 

  1. Don’t wait, just take the first step

 

The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.

 

  1. Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely

 

The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”

 

  1. Respect the competition

 

Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.

 

  1. Change is important

Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
