Azfar Rehman is a name which is not unknown to anybody. He started off his career as a model then turned into a host and an actor & is the most popular celebrity we have in pakistan.
Recently in an interview regarding his upcoming serial Nazr-e-bad he opened about his transition and switch to negative roles and loathing characters.
“I just did Nazr-e-Bad and I truly believe it was the best thing that happened to me. Even my ongoing serial with Sohai Ali Abro, Aadhi Gawahi sees me play a very negative character,” he shares with pride. “I’ve literally been craving for good scripts. I’ve had enough of the lover boy and the hero; I feel it doesn’t have much to offer. So now, I really wanted to work on performance-oriented projects, I wanted to see how that goes and I am enjoying myself now more than ever.”
“Anything done for the big screen is a lot more challenging, it takes time to be accepted and comical love-stories are doing well, and I don’t mind following that street,” he confesses. “Films like Wrong No and Lahore Se Aagey have done well. That genre has been running successfully, so to satisfy the actor in me, I know I always have television. Cinema has the power of creating icons, we don’t yet have that perfect action hero or a villain, and we’re working towards that for now.”
Apart from that, the actor has also signed onto his next untitled television outing with director Shakeel Khan of Choti Si Zindagi-fame.
