Beauty with brains; this notion truly fits for Mawra Hocane. This young VJ/drama and film actor/ attorney degree holder stepped in the Pakistan drama industry in 2012 and proved that she is no less than any other top-rated actor of the industry.
Who is Mawra Hocane?
Mawra Hocane was born in Karachi, Pakistan, on September 28, 1992. Her father’s name is Mushtaq Hussain, who used to serve in the Pakistan Army. She is younger to Urwa Hocane, who is also a famous Pakistani drama and film actress. Mawra has a younger brother whose name is Inse Yazdan. Her family moved to Islamabad when she was a child. She completed her matriculation from Bahria School. In an interview, she said that she was a complaisant and studious child. Her teachers always praised her for passing her exams with flying colors. After obtaining 87% in FSC, she decided to pursue medical studies, but shortly she dropped out of the program as she thought that it is not a fit for her. She tried her luck with fashion designing as well but ultimately found her passion for acting. When the interviewer asked Mawra how she started her acting career, she told that she along with her sister Urwa used to perform in theatre plays during her school days. Afterward, they both started hosting a kids show, which was aired on a channel called ATV. Urwa then moved to Karachi to start her career as a VJ for ARY Music. Mawra being attached to Urwa also went after her and eventually started getting opportunities to act in dramas. Her first drama was Mere Huzoor and after that, there was no looking back for her. In 2014, Mawra registered herself for an LLB degree from the University of London but put it on hold after receiving an offer to act in a Bollywood film. However, she resumed her studies later on and graduated as an advocate in 2019.
Mawra guest-starred in Khichdi Salsa, Love ke Chakkar me, and Kountry Luv in 2011. All of these dramas aired on ATV. In 2012, she played the lead roles in Ik Tamanna Lahasil Si, Nikhar Gaye Gulab Sare, and Yahan Pyar Nahi Hai which aired on Hum TV Mein Gunehgar Nahi which aired on ARY Digital and Mere Huzoor, which aired on Express Entertainment. In 2013, she acted in Halki Si Khalish and Mere Harjai for Hum TV and Main Bushra, Billo, Babblu aur Bhaiyya for ARY Digital. 2014 was quite busy for her as she appeared in six dramas back to back on different channels. She worked in Billio, Bablu or Bhaiyya, Main Bushra, Ahista Ahista, Meri Wife Ke Lie, and Kitni Girhain Baqi Hain. She said that 2014 has been a game-changer for her as this was the year when she learned the true essence of acting. In 2015, she appeared in Maryam and Shareek-e-Hayat on Geo TV and Hum TV respectively. In 2016, she played a leading role in Hasil. It is the same year that she garnered both commercial and critical attention for her lead role in the Bollywood film Sanam Teri Kasam, which she played opposite Harshavardhan Rane. Despite the best performances by the lead cast, this movie could not do well on the box office. 2017 has also been lucky for her as her drama serial Sammi for Hum TV got popular. She was even nominated for the Hum Award for best actress for her performance in Sammi. In 2018, she appeared in Aangan for Hum TV and a Pakistani film Jawani Phir Nahi Aani 2 and again won the hearts of her fans with her spectacular performance.
Apart from drama serials, Mawra Hocane also starred in a few telefilms like Papa Razi which aired on ARY Digital and Ghar Aye Mehman which aired on Hum TV. She has also walked in many fashion shows for different reputable fashion designers.
Why does she write Hussain as Hocane?
She changed the spelling of her second name from Hussain to Hocane when she was in the 7th standard to give her name a modern look.
Mawra Hocane’s social media handles
Mawra has quite an active social media presence. She has accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram under the name @mawrellous. In fact, she is the third most followed Pakistani actress on Instagram. From her posts, it appears that she is an ardent Muslim as she frequently posts Quranic verses and Islamic preachings on her accounts. She also uses these platforms to raise her voice for many social causes.
- Mawra Hocane raised controversy when she pictured a kissing scene in her Bollywood film in 2016.
- Mawra Hocane again became a victim of social media harassment when she tweeted in favor of the Indian film Phantom, which was made on the subject of Indo-Pak rivalry. Pakistani film actor Shaan bashed Mawra for supporting the film and they both indulged in a social media war for quite a long time. Shaan even demanded a ban on Mawra Hocane.
Mawra’s clothing line
In 2019, the Hocane sisters (Mawra and Urwa) both launched their clothing line under the name UxM. Their brand features Western wear and accessories.
