If you’re a fan of Pakistani drama serials, the name Hiba Bukhari aka Hiba Qadir should definitely ring a bell. Despite her young age, Hiba has made a name for herself as one of the best actresses in our industry right now. Flipping through channels, particularly HUM TV and ARY digital, you’re bound to come across two of her current dramas ‘Jhok Sarkar’ and ‘Tere Ishq Ke Naam’.
Within both shows, she plays two diverse characters from completely different backgrounds. Though both ‘Sassi’ and ‘Rutba’ are strong characters they are, in quite a few ways, worlds apart, and yet Hiba Bukhari has managed to play both characters seamlessly.
Let’s then, look into her versatile characters in both gripping dramas. In ‘Jhok Sarkar’, a heartfelt tribute to the unsung heroes of the Police service, Hiba takes on the role of ‘Sassi’ – who comes across as a force to be reckoned with.
As a strong-willed and independent woman, Sassi fearlessly stands up for her beliefs, displaying unwavering resilience no matter who or what comes her way. But that’s not all – she also possesses a heart brimming with compassion and kindness, going out of her way to lend a helping hand to those around her.
Her positive influence on the people of her village serves as an inspiration for them to strive for a better future. It’s no surprise that Sassi has won the hearts of the audience, through her strong will and rebellious attitude where she always fights for what’s right.
Switching gears to ‘Tere Ishq Ke Naam’, a drama of unconventional family dynamics, love, and hate, Hiba embodies the role of ‘Rutba’. Rutba, a stubborn and headstrong young girl, leads her life with a carefree attitude, acting out whenever things don’t go her way. While both Rutba and Sassi share a fearless spirit, unafraid to speak their minds, there are nuances that set them apart. Sassi’s deep sense of compassion contrasts with Rutba’s more self-centered demeanor, making each character unique to watch. Since both characters face a different set of trials and tribulations their responses to pain are also completely different.
While Rutba seems more passive-aggressive and accepting whatever comes her way, Sassi is fearless in the face of anyone. Yet, despite the differences and similarities, Hiba Bukhari’s mastery brings both roles to life in a seamless manner, leaving the audience yearning for more.
Now, let’s take a closer look at Hiba Bukhari’s portrayal of Sassi in ‘Jhok Sarkar’. Throughout the aired episodes, Sassi rightfully claimed the spotlight, thanks to Hiba Bukhari’s powerful and captivating performance. As the story unfolded, her character grappled with the devastating revelation that her brother, Jeevan, was shot by a police officer.
Hiba’s gripping acting skills truly moved the audience, making them feel every ounce of Sassi’s distress and heartache. One particular scene, where Sassi delivers a resounding slap to the very police officer, Arsalan (played by Farhan Saeed), who was responsible for her brother’s fate, left the viewers spellbound.
Hiba’s seamless portrayal of raw emotions – anger and hurt – earned her immense praise from her dedicated fans, eagerly awaiting the next chapter of the story.
With Hiba Bukhari’s exceptional performances, it’s no wonder she has earned the admiration and love of her dedicated fans.
As she continues to impress with her acting prowess, we eagerly await what this rising star has in store for us in the future.
