There have been some outstanding contributions by individual artists to the Pakistani drama industry. There have been many sets of performers; those who have received international acclaim and fame, those who have single handedly carried the industry through times of distress and those who have managed to become prime examples of success for upcoming artists. Some of these might not have become as famous as others, but their contribution to the field of drama has still been nothing short of outstanding. One such performer is Mukhtar Ahmed.
Having received his higher education from the St. Patrick's High School in Karachi in 1979, Mukhtar graduated in 1982 from the University of Karachi. Mukhtar has been a consistent performer in the Pakistani media industry, giving stellar performances along the way such as the one in drama serial Aitbaar on Hum TV and Rishtay Mohabbaton Kay, which aired 100 episodes on HUM TV. He also acted in the teleplay entitled 'The Team'. Mukhtar's illustrious career in the field of acting has been littered with various recognitions and awards, and even though he is such a well recognized actor, Mukhtar is an exceptionally modest character and recognized by his colleagues as a father figure around the sets.
