Anyone who knows even a little bit about quality dramas in Pakistan must be familiar with Sultana Siddiqui's name and stature in the entertainment industry. Being a gifted drama director, she is the first woman to have become the President of a channel in South Asia and after Hum TV's creation, that is a remarkable feat indeed.
Sultana deserves the credit for introducing some of the most talented actors in the industry which include Mahnoor Baloch and Ghazal Siddique, who were both introduced in the drama serial 'Marvi'. Ever since her days with PTV, her dramas always touched upon the emancipation that she wanted women in Pakistan to achieve. Another one of her popular plays on PTV, among many others, was 'Yeh Zindagi'.
As a part of Hum TV, she has been involved in the production of many popular dramas such as 'Jannat', 'Shayad Ke Bahar Aye', 'Aur Zindagi Badalti Hai' and the tele film 'Saans Le Aey Zindagi' to name a few.
For her contributions to television and for being the first South Asian woman to hold the position of President at a TV channel, she was awarded Pride of Performance by the government of Pakistan in the year 2007.
