Starting her career on screen as a child actor and voice over artist at the young age of 10, it would not be wrong to say that TV viewers in Pakistan have seen Maya Khan grow and evolve in front of their own eyes. Early on in her career, she was best known for hosting a number of TV shows for children as well as a musical countdown show. However, she did not stop just there and showed her creativity as an actress in numerous dramas as well.

Later on, she acted in the super hit drama serial called 'Bisaat' alongside veteran artists like Nadeem, Arshad Mahmood and Jahanara Hai. After the introduction of private channels, Maya was seen in a number of plays.
She played the female lead in the popular drama serial aired on Indus Vision by the name of 'Laila Majnoo' and earned a lot of appreciation for her depiction of the tragedy which surrounded the play as well as the popular folk tale it is based on.
