I hope to outdo myself with each performance – Mawra Hocane

Mawra Hocane talks about the importance of education

The young, pretty and very talented Mawra Hocane who started her career back in 2012 has never failed to impress us.

In an interview when asked if Sammi is tailor made for her, she said; “It wasn’t tailor-made. I have never closely seen a life like Sammi’s! It was suffocating at times, it was extremely difficult to integrate into that feudal or patriarchal system and behave like a girl would behave under such circumstances. But if it did seem effortless and tailor=made, I’d take that as a huge compliment.”

As an actor, my talents definitely haven’t been explored at all and I feel there are still ample tricks left in my bag. Though it does annoy me at times to be doing the same thing, playing similar characters can be both a good thing and a bad thing. I do hope to outdo myself with each performance which brings with it a promise of longevity because I feel I have so much to learn and share with the audience,” she added.

Sammi is Mawra Hocane’s come back to Pakistan’s Television screens after a long time. The Sanam Teri Qasam actress will be playing a strong female lead opposite the legendary Adnan Siddiqui. Apart from them, the ever-powerful star cast includes; Rehan Sheikh, Seemi Raheel, Ahad Raza Mir, Saman Ansari, Madiha Rizvi, Bilal Ansari, Noor ul Hasan, Irfan Khoosat, Sania Saeed, and Nadia Afgan.

Sammi has been penned by the writing maestro Noor Ul Huda Shah and directed by Saifee Hassan. The serial has been produced in collaboration with John Hopkins University under the banner MD Productions in association with Centre for Communication Programs, Pakistan.
