Profile

Syeda Mehr Bano Kazim (Urdu: مہر بانو, born 7 January 1981), known by the stage name Juggan "Jay" Kazim (Urdu: جگن کاظم),[1] is a Pakistani-Canadian actress, model, and television host. She has worked in numerous Pakistani and Canadian films. She was nominated for MTV Model of the Year in 2008.[citation needed] She is the brand ambassador for Garnier Fructis Pakistan.

Biography

Kazim grew up in Lahore, in the Punjab province of Pakistan, with an elder sister and a younger brother. Her uncle, Raza Kazim, is a renowned lawyer and supporter of the arts.

Her parents separated when she was a year old. Her father, Syed Abbas Kazim, let her work as a child model because "he looked upon it as something cute", she says, even though her family considered acting—her ambition from an early age—to be too lowly a field for a girl of her station. Her father was conservative in his ideas about women, and her mother, Ghazala Saigol, was more modern.

She attended Kinnaird College and the King's College, Canada, where she dropped out before she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media. She also holds a Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. While in college, she got a tongue piercing, something she now calls "a painful college experiment in Canada".

In December 2004, Kazim returned from Canada to Pakistan, when she eloped with a man she met while attending a friend's wedding. After just over a year of marriage, during which her husband beat her, she left him, taking their two-month-old son with her. The father is not involved in her son's upbringing; she says this was a mutual decision, influenced by her experiences as the child of divorced parents.

Kazim is fluent in both Urdu and English

Career

Kazim has been involved in media work since she was four years old. In 1985–86 she did advertisements for Samsonite and other products.

She appeared in her first commercial play when she was fourteen, directed by her best friend Mashal Peerzada.[3] Her professional career, where she started using the name "Juggan Kazim", began in Toronto, when Sutherland Models approached her to work as a model. She mainly does print modeling; her 5-foot-4-inch (1.63 m) stature makes her think that "I'd look rather stupid walking the ramp." After two music videos with Sutherland, she was approached by Newton Landry Management, who remain her Canadian agents.

Kazim's first starring role was in the movie Pink Ludoos, a role she did not expect to get.

After returning to Pakistan, she started hosting television with the show Beanbag, which she also conceived and wrote. Since then, she has hosted a number of shows for various Pakistani networks. In March 2010, Kazim was named as L'Oréal's "Brand Ambassador" for their Garnier brand of hair and skin-care products in Pakistan.

In March 2011, Kazim acted opposite Shaan Shahid in Altaf Hussain's Lollywood film Khamosh Raho. As of 6 March 2011, Hussain planned to release the film in Pakistan on 10 June 2011. She is also starring opposite Mohib Mirza, Sanam Baloch and Sunita Marshall in Mirza's upcoming film Silent Cinema.
