There are undoubtedly many lead actors and actresses that the Pakistani audiences have seen in the local television dramas. However, these lead actors would not be able to perform to their best if it is not for the supporting cast members in any drama they are a part of. Among the supporting actors who have made their presence felt on Pakistani television channels, Asim Bukhari is perhaps one of the best known.
With his characteristic round glasses, Asim Bukhari has played pivotal roles in a number of unforgettable dramas whose genres ranged from serious to comedy. Having been on screen for more than two decades, he started his acting career from PTV and has appeared in a number of memorable dramas such as 'Ainak Wala Jin', 'Janjaal Pura', 'Pal Bhar Main', 'Ghanti', 'Zard Dopeher' and 'Shehr-e-'Murad'.
Asim Bukhari also appeared in a film 'Khamosh Nigahen' in 1971 but the film flopped and he returned back to television.
