Wahaj Ali Stands out With His Exceptional Performance in “Ehd-e-Wafa”
Wahaj Ali has acclaimed a lot of fame in a short span of time because of his tremendous acting skills and his ability to ace different kinds of roles. Currently starring in one of the most anticipated dramas of this year, Ehd-e-Wafa, Wahaj has been outshining with his spot-on acting in the serial.
Directed by Saife Hassan, written by Mustafa Afridi, and produced by ISPR and Momina Duraid Productions, the serial has garnered a significant fan following. The strong bond of friendship of four friends in college (Saad, Shahzain, Shariq, and Shehryaar, played by Ahad Raza Mir, Osman Khalid Butt, Wahaj Ali, and Ahmed Ali Akbar respectively) and the fun friendship dynamics play a big role in the drama getting critical acclaim and praise.
The first three episodes that have aired till now focused mainly on introducing the characters and the fun-filled reckless adventures of these four friends, who call themselves the Special S Gang (SSG). They escape the hostel and get past the restrictions just to get some fun and food outside. All the friends bring a new element to the drama- but the character that stands out the most is Shariq, who has a lot of different dimensions to his character. Translated wonderfully on-screen by Wahaj Ali, he has managed to stand out among the ensemble cast. He shares amazing on-screen chemistry with the rest of the actors, making it a treat to watch for the audience.
In all three episodes, Wahaj Ali made his presence felt amongst more senior artists. His character Shariq has a lot of shades; he is a sensible and caring boy, but at the same time he also has a comic side to his personality and Wahaj has translated Shariq’s character on screen impeccably. His solid performance in last night’s episode left a great impression, especially the scenes in which he was worried about the consequences of Saad getting caught and later when his sister was beating him because of the complaint she had received about him. While watching Wahaj getting beaten by his sister and apologizing for what he did, his expressions were so on-point that we could actually feel our heartbreaking for him. The episode ended with him hugging his sister as both of them cried, and it surely touched our hearts, watching Wahaj Ali crying and trying to make his sister understand what had happened wasn’t his fault.
The drama has just begun and there is a lot left in this journey. Looking forward to what turn the story will take from here, and what Wahaj Ali has in store for us, because his performance has surely raised the bar high in this drama.
