Who is he?
Made with all the right ingredients that quintessential hunks are made of, Adeel Husain has marked his presence in the Pakistani drama industry with stellar performances in Daam, Mata-e-Jaan and Mora Piya. There may be more to him than a chiselled face and a sturdy bod but we can’t tear our eyes off these two to focus on his other talents. Having worked with the A-listers of the industry, Adeel’s selective approach to choosing dramas makes him stand out from the rest.
Why we love him
Dress him up in formal shirts and sleek suits as seen in Daam or dress him down in tattered jeans and boy-next-door outfits in Mata-e-Jaan, there’s no stopping the charm oozing from every bit of him. This Antonio Banderas look-alike reeks of testosterone overload. When we saw his acting in the Mehreen Jabbar-directed Daam we went weak in the knees watching this affluent guy picking out an ordinary girl to fall in love with.
Although his sexy cropped curls and lean, toned bod, could easily land him a modelling job, Adeel chose to act — not because he wanted to garner fame and money, but because he wanted to do everything he could in the service of telling a story. He’s the reason we’re tuning into Silvatein and Jiya Na Jaye every week.
What you didn’t know about him
Our hearts melted over his tousled hair and sculpted body when we saw him on screen, but Adeel says he would have been a concept artist and designer if he wasn’t an actor.
The boy has a taste for sketching that only increases his appeal as multi-faceted man candy. A guy drawing on an easel can take us on romantic flights of fantasy.
He loves cats and has two of them — we’re sure he knows how to make them purr!
His ideal woman: Only a beautiful soul can win this man with charming spirit that starts with those intense eyes and goes all the way down to his toes. Traits that can win his heart are honesty, trust, bravery charm. How endearing! “I don’t think of somebody doing things for me. I think about how spending time with a person feels like.”
