There is no shortage of good looking blokes in our entertainment industry, but looking back at the year 2015, there were a few standouts who forced us to take a double take.
From good looks to achievements, we bring to you our list of 10 most eligible celebrity bachelors of 2015.
1. Umair Jaswal
This stud is the complete package — educated, good looking, charming and a successful music career — he’s got a lot going for him. A qualified geologist, Umair rose to fame with his illustrious musical background. After delivering hit Sammi Meri Waar in Coke Studio 8 earlier this year, this Jaswal brother had women swooning left, right and center.
He can rock a beard and moustache like he invented the style and he can cure your blues with his magical voice. A little affection, attention and strong shoulders to cry on… what else would a girl want?
2. Hamza Ali Abbasi
The Pyarey Afzal actor made headlines in 2015 for numerous reasons — each Facebook status garnering more attention than the last, which undoubtedly led to severe social media backlash. He is known for his highly-opinionated nature and passing judgmental remarks on issues of “national concern”. Even his good looks and distinctive voice couldn’t save him.
Nevertheless, Hamza still resides in millions of hearts and is one actor people couldn’t stop talking about.
3. Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui
Well we all know the reason! Sherry has been making waves with countless TV serials and commercials. But he is now en route to becoming a star with his upcoming debut film Ho Mann Jahaan. The young heartthrob is indeed a ladies man. He has charm and grabs attention wherever he goes. His 100-watt smile is too hard to ignore and that’s what melts our hearts.
Not only he is well-spoken and well dressed, he has a great sense of humour that will never let you down. Ladies, this gentleman is surely one to keep.
4. Adeel Husain
If you love a little bit of mystery then Adeel is the guy for you. The actor’s on-and-off affair with the small screen never revealed enough about his personality — he has always been, as they say, a chhupa rustum.
However, we have seen a huge shift in Adeel’s personality during promos of his upcoming debut Ho Mann Jahaan. He has finally come out of his shell and proven that he also has a fun-loving side to him.
5. Osman Khalid Butt
The promising actor could easily be dubbed the ‘Chocolate Hero’ of 2015. Paving his way from TV commercials to serials, Osman has worked hard at carving his own niche.
His bitter-sweet on-screen chemistry with co-star Maya Ali in hit TV serials Aik Naeey Cinderella, Aunn Zara and Diyar-e-Dil has given us some serious relationship goals. But off-screen, the actor truly wow-ed us when he walked the ramp at Fashion Pakistan Week and Winter/Festive and Telenor Bridal Couture Week this year.
His impeccable acting prowess, unique sense of humour and good looks easily qualify him as our very own McDreamy. Osman will make everything picture-perfect in your life!
6. Adnan Malik
The host-turned-actor has been single for a while now; a fact that leaves us baffled. Adnan has been making us swoon over his debonair personality over the past few years and this time around, his outstanding portrayal of Khalil in TV serial Sadqay Tumharay blew us away.
Everyone went gaga over his unique love story with co-star Mahira Khan, who played the role of his childhood fiancé Shano. Together they gave us some major relationship goals. This man surely knows how to work his magic on the ladies.
7. Bilal Lashari
This clean-shaven lad was a sight for sore eyes when he made a cameo appearance as a sniper in self-directed 2013 blockbuster Waar. He definitely set new standards for film-making in Pakistan.
This year, he won our hearts again when he played the sniper in Jawani Phir Nahi Ani. His cameo appearance took us back to the good ol’ days. If you constantly seek direction in your life, Bilal could be your guiding star.
8. Gohar Rasheed
The versatile actor’s impeccable talent not only helped him make a mark in theatre and the small screen, but also landed him pivotal roles on the silver screen. This year, Gohar continued to weave his magic on small screens with various hit TV serials such as Khilona, Goya and Aitraaz. His cameo appearance as a fashion designer in Jawani Phir Nahi Ani also won him praise from audiences and critics alike.
Due to his easy-going nature, this boy-next-door is the answer to all your mood swings. But don’t take him for granted because this Shaukt from Digest Writer can also be temperamental.
9. Sikander Rizvi
One of legendary Madam Noor Jehan’s grandkids, Sikander made waves with his acting debut in Dekh Magar Pyar Se. Not only does he possess charmingly good looks but is also a culinary genius. The chef had already earned feathers in his cap by successfully running a popular café in Karachi before entering the mainstream media.
After watching him on the silver screen, we couldn’t help but admire this tall, fair and handsome chap’s charming personality. For all the foodies out there, Sikander surely knows the way to your hearts.
10. Imran Khan
Many hearts were broken when Kaptaan tied the knot earlier this year. But as they say, all good things must come to an end. Imran’s second marriage took an unpredictable yet dramatic turn. The most coveted bachelor in Pakistan divorced TV anchor Reham Khan shortly after their marriage.
Where friends and family were shocked over the unfortunate incident, many rejoiced for the PTI chief being back in the game.
The cricketer-turned-politician needs no justification to qualify as one the most eligible bachelors in our country. His inimitable persona still captivates women of all age groups. He is single and on the market once again. And they say the third time’s a charm, ladies!
