So let us talk about Yasir Hussain – I know you surely want to know about him and his family. Yasir Hussain is one of the twelve siblings, and he belongs to Kashmir. Among these twelve siblings comes another famous singer, Schumaila Hussain, who has sung many OSTs.

Yasir Hussain has got his Master’s degree from Preston University – he has studied really hard, and it was his dream to have a better academic background. Although Yasir is only 36, he and his wife Iqra Aziz still look much younger than their age and get offers of playing lead roles in many dramas.

And due to Yasir’s humor, he still gets offers to host award shows. As humor is everything, you need to make any event special. And in one of these award shows, Yasir proposed Iqra Aziz that too no one expected due to his humorous nature – the couple got married on 28th December 2019, and they more were looking like a perfect match made in heaven.

Yasir Hussain Career:

Who knew that the famous Yasir Hussain would start his career as a VJ for Aag TV? He worked there for almost two years, and he set some new goals to be achieved. He moved to writing and acting. This multi-talented person has also collaborated with Anwar Maqsood.

He worked in theatres to polish his acting skills. Yasir Hussain’s acting skills are so marvelous that he has played in theatres at an international level as well. He has worked in Half Plate that Anwar Maqsood composed as a leading character.

His other plays include Pawnay, Aangan Terha, Siachen, and the list goes on. But the most famous play that he did was Aangan Terha, in which Yasir played the role of Akbar. We saw Yasir again playing in theatres. He acted amazingly in Naach Na Jaanay that was too composed by Anwar Maqsood from 23rd March 2019 and onwards as it could be seen in various theatres, and it was surely a super hit by Yasir and Anwar Maqsood. It seems like Anwar Maqsood too considers Yasir as a King of acting.

Talking about his drama career, he first worked in Coke Kahani in 2014. In 2017, he worked in one of his super hit dramas that were a good reason for his fame – Shadi Mubarak, in which Kubra Khan, Bushra Ansari, Sadia Faisal, and Asad Siddiqui were seen together on the big screen.

He also worked in his debut film ‘Karachi se Lahore’ in 2015 – to your surprise, Yasir Hussain was the writer of this hit movie, and it was composed by Wajahat Rauf.

Another famous Lollywood film written by Yasir Hussain was ‘Lahore se agay’ that was surely a hit, and no one can deny it that had Saba Qamar in it. Then he also worked on Karachi se Lahore 3 that was released in 2019. After this grand work, he is considered an excellent writer.

Yasir Hussain is known for his best performance as well – you may call him ‘a man of art’ with true artistic skills – he has polished his skills even more by working with top-rated artists. He has played a negative role in the drama serial Baandi with Muneed Butt and Aiman Khan – even though with a negative role, he was accomplished in making a number of fans. And a best actor is the one, who still is loved by majority doing negative roles as negative roles are too challenging to be touched by someone who has just begin his acting career.

Keeping aside his acting, playing and writing success, if we talk about the shows he has hosted – viewers can see him hosting The Afternoon Show where he welcomed many of the famous actors of all time like Reema Khan, Mahira Khan, Humayun Saeed – we must say this man has the true guts to set goals and achieve them.

He works hard for his goals, and his success is a result of all the hard work. As it is said, there is a woman behind a successful man, but Yasir’s case is a bit different – he has been his own support. Now he is married to Iqra – so we hope to see them experiencing more success and living a joyous life.
