Meesha Shafi, a singer-songwriter who moonlights as an actor, is having quite a run. Last year, she stole our hearts with that rich, big voice that was heard on the soundtrack(s) of Moor and Manto. Shafi was in impeccable form on both records and simply made one yearn for more music from her. If anything, 2016 is proving to be an even bigger year for Meesha as she tackles multiple fields of entertainment. Acting, music, fashion icon, she’s got a presence like no other.
Starring as Wazir Begum Farrukh Zaad in Sarmad Sultan Khoosat’s epic fantasy drama serial, Mor Mahal, Shafi’s character is as convincing as it is conniving. And the comeback to television is special since Shafi is returning after over five years.
As we watch her progression as an actor over the course of the next few weeks, thanks to Mor Mahal, music fans of Shafi can rejoice since she is heading to the United States for a musical tour.
The North American tour will see Shafi performing live in San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Washington DC and Boston, this month. On the tour, she will be joined by folk legend Arif Lohar.
