Arif Kazmi is a Pakistani TV actor. Arif started his career in 1994, but did not manage to break through to success. He was a relative unknown till 1997, when he was cast in the role of 'Flight Lt Umar' for the classical PTV drama Shahpar. Arif played the lead role in the drama, and managed to do complete justice to that role. This can also be attributed to the fact that Arif Kazmi is also a real life pilot, serving in the 25th Squadron of Pakistan. He is a Wing Commander.
Arif stated that it was his wish to act in the drama serial, Alpha Bravo Charlie, but because of his commitments, he couldn't even try. He has left acting, with Shahpar being Arif's most notable performance. Talks were ongoing in 2008 about Arif making a return to the media, but in a statement that he gave in a talk show, he explicitly said that he would not be appearing on TV anymore.
