Pakistani TV serial Bashar Momin fans know that no man out-dresses the character of Bashar — but as of 2015, the same rule officially also applies to the man who played Bashar so well, artist Faysal Quraishi. With his extraordinary dressing sense, the actor has impressed fans at all his recent appearances; post the acclaim his character Bashar Momin’s iconic fashion aesthetics received.
Bashar’s slick fashion statements had a lot to do with the show’s popularity, which eventually went on to become one of the most successful TV dramas of the previous year. Whether it was Faysal’s neat undercut hairstyle, impeccably groomed facial hair or his sharp well fitted suits, every aspect of his look was created keeping international trends in mind. In fact, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that he was one of the first celebrities to introduce these trends in Pakistan, which we spotted being reproduced all year round on local runways and TV screens.
Following the popularity of his fashion choices as Bashar Momin, Faysal Quraishi has now started taking more interest in his outfit choices for all appearances, speaking about which he said “Before Bashar Momin, I was just an actor. Like any other man, I did want to look presentable but the amount of appreciation my character’s style sense received has pushed me to become more conscious about what I wear. It is very important to keep one’s fans happy if they start expecting something from you. For all my upcoming serials and my game show Jeet Ka Dum, I am actively involved with my styling team to come up with unique looks that look best on me”.
