Tv and stage actor
Sohail Ahmed is a Pakistani comedian, and stage and TV actor. He is most notable for comedy stage dramas based in Lahore. He is famous for using improvised dialogue during stage plays. He is an outspoken opponent of vulgarity and obscenity in stage dramas.
Writer and director
He is also the writer and director of many stage plays.Recently Mr. Suhail Ahmed has proved himself to be an outstanding director when he produced and directed his second Drama Serial SHAAM, which was written by Mr. Iqbal Hasan Khan, a known playwright and short story writer of Pakistan. This play went on air this year in Jan.Although his earlier stage shows inlined vulgarity but with a passage time he proved his decency in character after shows like hasb e haal.
The show Hasb e Haal airs on Dunya TV and then is downloaded on the internet through various media portals and distributed via social media websites. It has a viewership of 100,000 viewers on the internet ( mostly in Americas and Europe). The numbers are picked from youtube and awaz.tv, there are surely ten times as many ( unaccounted in this study) viewers watching the show on cable tv. However if the internet numbers are seen as a sample study and a proportionate approximation is made about the larger viewer population - the raw data-points indicate that the character and the show has the highest hitrate count in the west for any show on air currently.
Azizi is the persona Sohail Ahmed walks into when he appears on the show Hasb e haal. The character over time has come to symbolize the voice of sanity over the apparent apathy in the society. He mocks the flagrant disregard for law, lack of policy architecture by the government and equally blatant lack of incentive from the civil society to change the squalid they occupy. The popularity of the character is understandable in a society which has lost its relevance and looks at reality through half open conduits. Where scruples are sham and morals mostly a facade to impose upon each other one's perceived dominance: Azizi brings the freshness of being unabashedly pedestrian.
Most stage-drama fans know Sohail Ahmed as a comedian, however, most of his TV appearances, specially on Pakistan Television, have been in serious and often negative characters. He has played many diverse characters on TV which vary from a professional killer to a feudal lord.
