Performance Artist and Actor
Asfandyar Khan was born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan, and found his love for the performing arts during his time in school. He went on to act, direct, and adapt small theatre shows in Karachi alongside the many talented students and upcoming artists of the city, under the banner of Gaslight Company, a newly founded production house. Most recently, he featured on the Disney+ show, Ms Marvel, which followed the story of Marvel’s first Pakistani and Muslim superhero. Grateful to have played a small part in bringing and celebrating Pakistani culture in the mainstream media, he views Ms Marvel as the first step of many, for Pakistani artists and cinema to get the recognition it so rightly deserves.
