Saman Ansari will be seen live on stage in the play “Jasoosi Dunya”


Famous Khaani actress Saman Ansari is a multi-faceted actor who has played prominent roles in leading dramas on Pakistani television. She has been seen on major channels in dramas like; Mr. Shamim, Bin Roye, Sammi, Dar Si Jaati Hai Sila, Mohabbat Tumse Nafrat Hai and many more.

After giving back-to-back hit series, Saman Ansari has moved from the drama industry to the theatrical scene and will be seen in a resilient character in an upcoming play “Jasoosi Dunya”. The play was adapted by director Khalid Ahmed from an English play called “The Psychic” by Sam Bobrick. The story is sort of a murder mystery filled with fantasy, murder, comedy, romance, action, and as the name suggests, psychic elements.

Asked about Ansari’s transition from drama to theater, she said: “The transition was totally unexpected. I have always been fascinated by theater as a young girl and wanted to learn acting methods and voice projection techniques. Recently, I was surprisingly contacted by one of Pakistan’s brilliant screenwriters, BeeGul, to be a part of this play. Later, I received a call from the director Khalid Ahmed who entrusted me with the main character of this play ”.

As the female protagonist of ‘Jasoosi Dunya’, Saman described her character as follows: “Salma is a beautiful, confident and elegant woman, struggling with a terrible marriage. One day, she decides to turn to a medium out of curiosity to calm her mind and, without realizing it, ends up becoming a muse for her writings, because the medium is in fact an author of detective novels ”.

Since theater is a different platform from television, Saman Ansari shared his work experience after investing weeks and weeks of rehearsals, vocal training, body movements, and honing his recap of a take. She also said that horizontal diversification into any type of performing arts always helps an actor to progress.

Saman also shared his take on the future of theater and entertainment in the Netflix era. She added, saying “Netflix, torrents, DVDs, TV on demand, nothing can replace the energy of a live performance. It is imperative that the alternative media support and help promote live performances and theater, but nothing can ever diminish its power to attract audiences. NAPA is infantile but will become brilliant ”.

Jasoosi Dunya will premiere from October 4, 2018 to October 13, 2018 at NAPA, Karachi.
