If asked to name a talented, handsome and unconventional Pakistani TV couple to grace the show business the first name that comes to mind is that of Samina and Usman Peerzada.
Bold and beautiful with a mind of their own, this Pakistani TV couple consists of individuals with opposite personalities. Opposites attract each other that’s why when Samina proposed Usman accepted and the two eloped to get married.
But that was more than 37 years ago, now though living in different cities due to work requirements, they share a strong bond and a deep understanding most couples living under the same roof lack.
Pakistani TV actress Samina Pirzada started her career with modeling and acting and has numerous television plays and films to her credit. She has won a number of awards for her memorable performances both on TV and films.
At the prime of her career Samina turned to directing plays and proved her mantel by directing hit serials such as Karb and Sophia. Samina also directed a movie a famous Pakistani movie “Inteha”. Inteha was a breath of fresh air in the otherwise stagnant film industry; the film was appreciated by all and sundry.
It is said that the typical Lollywood producers and directors became insecure with the runaway success of the film and made every possible effort to make Samina quit. Samina’s second venture “Shararat” did not go well. Samina was heartbroken by the attitude of the people and she decided to move back to her home town Karachi. In Karachi, she immersed herself in acting and is doing quite well.
Usman’s work commitments did not allow him to move with his wife. Usman is an actor, writer, director and producer. Usman has written, produced and directed mega hit films such as Nazdikiyan and Gori Dyan Jhanjran.
Usman has also directed a number of documentaries and has also served UNICEF in the capacity of film journalist. Usman has always been supportive of his wife’s career and vice versa; the key factor behind the accomplishments and achievements of this graceful couple.
