There have been many actors whom the audiences have been watching in various Pakistani television dramas about whom little is known. Although these actors make a frequent appearance in dramas and have been associated with successful projects, they are better known by face than by their name. Such is the case with Asma Abbas as well who has appeared in a number of dramas produced by PTV and private television channels.
Asma's roles in dramas have all been supporting in nature and are usually the typical urban middle age woman's roles. Her drama 'Chunnri', televised on PTV, gained popularity among the audiences who had stopped watching Pakistan Television productions. She has also acted in a number of television serials, both serious dramas and comedies, on private channels.
Her popular private channel dramas include the comedy play 'Double Duty' (Hum TV), 'Judai Maar Deti Hai' (ATV), 'Mohabbat Youn Bhi Hoti Hai' (ATV), 'Half Light' (ARY Digital) and 'Teri Ik Nazar' (Geo TV).
