In the entertainment industry, Mirza Gohar Rasheed is known as an actor of the finest caliber. His main and supporting acts in films, plays, and on stage have captivated audiences all over the world. But he didn’t start his remarkable journey as an actor; rather, it began as a person working behind the camera. At a theatre performance, Humayun Saeed found this gem—a true Gohar at his craft—and by the power of his remarkable acting abilities, he quickly shot to fame.
His film “Seedlings,” for which he received nominations for best actor in a supporting role at the 2012 New York Film Festival and the first ARY Film Awards, as well as for best actor at the 13th Lux Style Awards, is where he first made headlines. Since then, he has been working with renowned drama producers and filmmakers. The actor’s brilliance is proven by award-winning performances and blockbuster highlights, one after the other.

For his character in Laapata he received acclaim from critics and drama aficionados.
He not only dominated the drama industry, but he also reigns supreme in movies, giving outstanding performances in blockbusters like Seedlings, Main Hoon Shahid Afridi, London Nahi Jaunga, O21, Jawani Phir Nahi Aani, Rangreza, Yalghar, and many others.
