She was 16 at that time, now she has a fan following of over 2 million on Instagram and over 6 million on TikTok.
Due to the pandemic cinemas all across the globe being shut down, people have shifted towards the OTT platforms such as Amazon Prime, Netflix, HBO, etc. but in Pakistan entertainment industry couldn’t survive properly due to the lack of OTT platforms in our country. Then content creators rose and created some of the best content for the audience.
Romaisa said, “It’s true that Covid helped us in some ways and we got a chance to reach the masses. I hit 1 million on Instagram in 2020 during peak-Covid.”

Romaisa has already started her journey in the drama industry and soon will make a debut. She also featured in John, starring Aashir Wajahat. When an interviewer asked her what medium she prefers, the aspiring actor continued: “Both of them have their perks. Acting is my first love, so I loved filming dramas. But I also enjoy the creative freedom I get from content creation.”
She then put some light on social media apps, she credits her success to all the social media apps she’s been using and she believes that through such platforms she can connect with her audiences. She also shared her views on banning apps, “community guidelines should be put in place and actively followed instead of entirely banning an application.”
What’s next for Romaisa Khan
The interviewer lastly asked her what was on the cards next for Romaisa? With John coming out, will she be making the switch to mainstream entertainment and letting go of content creation?
“Evolution takes time, having said that, I feel social media will take over mainstream soon. But that’s just my opinion.
One can already see how our TV stars are switching to social media and vlogging on YouTube, making TikToks – they are adapting themselves accordingly. As for me, I would like to do more movies and dramas, but also improve my content. I also want to make short films one day but I know for sure, that I will never stop making social media content.”
