Sarwat’s is not the usual tale of ‘always wanting to be in the limelight.’ She was not aspiring to be a model, let alone an actor. She did not harbour dreams of fame and acclaim in any way associated with the performing arts. It all started with the fateful day, when she went to collect her sister from location where she was busy getting a commercial recorded. It was here that Sarwat was noticed and the next thing she knew she was asked to audition for a soap commercial since they needed a young girl in her teens. So it basically started from there. Then I kept on getting offers on and off. That set the ball rolling for Sarwat Gilani. She cites her first media experience as, Very exciting. I couldn’t wait for the ad to be aired.
Sarwat Gillani has become one of the most familiar faces on television. Her trademark being her petite frame and cute curls, and smile. However, her popularity has less to do with her looks and more to do with her innate acting skills that she has portrayed in numerous dramas that have been on air for the past several years.
Starting her career with smaller roles, Sarwat’s biggest break came when she was offered a leading role in the popular drama serial ‘Saiqa’ . Her next big role came in the drama ‘Meri Zaat Zarra-e-Benishan’ (Geo TV), which has been one of the most popular dramas of recent times.
