Veteran television actor Tahira Wasti passes away

Veteran television actor Tahira Wasti passed away on Sunday in Karachi. Wasti was 68.

Wasti, who is one of the oldest and most-recognised faces of Pakistan Television, appeared in shows like Kashkol, Jaangloos and Daldal. Wasti’s husband Rizwan and daughter Laila are also actors. Actor Maria Wasti is Tahira’s niece.

She started working on PTV in 1968-69 and came to prominence from a television play called Jaib Qatra, which was based on a short story by Saadat Hassan Manto. Wasti’s signature was her natural grace and regal personality, which made her the ideal choice for all shows that required characters showing royalty.
