AYESHA OMER BIOGRAPHY: Ayesha Omar is a Pakistani painter by profession, indulging in acting, modeling and other performing arts like singing. Over a period of just a few years, Ayesha is regarded as one of the most well-known television personalities in Pakistan.

At the tender age of eight, she started hosting a show with Muneeza Hashmi called Meray Bachpan Kay Din in which she would interview celebrities about their early days. She was always fond of performing arts and secretly had shared with friends her desire to sing which none took seriously until she decided she needs to take her career into the popular music culture of Pakistan. With her hopes high and luck stringing low, she took her lessons in classical singing to a test. She started performing with underground rock bands including Mind Riot and The Cell, and with the NCA music society later in her life.

This simple girl ended up in the mainstream media while she was studying at the National College of Arts (NCA). “I was part of a sitcom made by students and graduates. Its shooting used to take place in the college and the plot was based on life in NCA. A number of people spotted me there and offered me roles in different television projects. I couldn’t juggle acting in additional projects while I was at college because education was my first priority. However, after graduating, I started taking up more work.”
