Television in Pakistan has been a progressive industry for the past several years and in the process has produced a large number of talented individuals who have been contributing towards the growth of this industry in their own capacities. In particular, television deserves the credit for introducing some of the most prolific actors who redefined the entertainment industry standards in Pakistan.
Mariam Shafi has also been among the actors who have worked with full dedication in every project they laid their hands on. Being associated with television for more than a decade, one of her earliest performances came in the drama 'Dil Hi To Hai', which aired on Pakistan Television (PTV). She also appeared in a mini comedy drama series titled 'Forty Plus Ninety Plus'.
After the introduction of private channels, Mariam kept working with the same zeal and acted in a number of dramas. Among these, her drama serials 'Khuda Aur Mohabbat', airing on Geo TV, 'Pehchaan' , which screened on ATV and 'Aur Zindagi Badalti Hai', airing on Hum TV gained appreciation and popularity among the TV viewers.
