Date of Birth : 7 May 1978, Karachi, Pakistan
Zara Sheikh is a succesful model who
was well known in the world of fashion well before she made her debut in feature
films. Born in Karachi, Zara began her career as a model while she was still a relatively
young student. Her father was in the Civil Service which would normally result in
a life spent moving all over Pakistan. However, Zara was fortunate to have a stable
home as her parents were careful not to interupt her education at any time.
Zara was sensational in the film, which went on
to become a big hit and sweep the annual Film Awards in Lahore. Zara, in an unprecedented
move, won the award for Best Actress for her role in Tere Pyaar Mein (2001). This
was the first time a newcomer had won the award for Best Actress, let alone for
her first ever film. Zara's talent and hard work has resulted in her becoming one
of Pakistan's top actresses in a short period of time, alongside Meera and Saira
Khan. However, Zara is also in the process of showcasing another one of her talents.
She is putting the final touches on her debut music album, co-produced with Ali
