Known for her powerful performances, she has appeared in many strong roles in 1990’s. Huma Nawab started her career from PTV’s Islamabad center in 1982. Huma migrated to USA in 2000. In 2014, Huma is making a comeback in dramas after a gap of 13-14 years.
The Chand Grahan star packed her gear and left for the United States in 1998. “I was beginning to lose heart in what I was doing. Pakistan was changing rapidly. I felt as if the social setting had begun to encroach upon my freedom,” she tells The Express Tribune. Over 17 years later, Huma feels there’s unfinished business calling out to her. “As I was leaving, the private television industry was taking baby steps. Today, it owns a mammoth share in the market and because of that, actors are in a better position to ask for good money.”
Nawab debuted on screen with Silsila in 1983 and later featured in popular hits from the 90s, such as Nijaat and Hawaain. Back in the day, private TV was restricted to NTM/STN, and that too came out after around 800 actors took to the streets in 1995, calling for the privatisation of media. The venture soon succumbed to the killing loneliness in no time. PTV, on the other hand, was basking in its glory. “Be it drama serials or long plays, the cast and crew used to give their all to them. If you signed up for a project, the terms were such that you couldn’t look elsewhere,” she recalls.
The acting veteran worked as an interior decorator during her self-imposed exile. “It was a job I loved. It helped me forget acting for a bit.” However, as luck would have it, her instincts kicked in yet again. “During my visit to Karachi three years ago, friends from the acting circle pushed me into a comeback. It took me two years to muster up the courage to face the camera again, this time for Sarmad Sehbai’s upcoming film Mah-e-Meer. I did it. I am back.”
