In the crowd of over-the-top In­dian soaps, Pak­istani coun­ter­parts look like the calmer cousin, with a firm grip on the tri­als and tribu­la­tions of real life. And in those shows, Aam­ina Sheikh has evolved one of the most recog­nised and bank­able faces. A very fa­mous di­rec­tor has once said about her that ‘Aam­ina could com­mu­ni­cate more with a del­i­cately raised eye­brow than most per­form­ers could, with a raised voice’. With her ex­pres­sive eyes and a can­vas-like face, she is one of the few ac­tresses who can lift an en­tire project on her strong shoul­ders. On the per­sonal front, Aam­ina is a strong ad­vo­cate of women em­pow­er­ment and is lend­ing great sup­port to PAGE, a girls ed­u­ca­tion ini­tia­tive. She has just re­turned from Los An­ge­les af­ter show­cas­ing her much loved film Cake to the jury mem­bers of the Academy Awards. She is truly a global star from Pak­istan.
