Early life[edit]

Nadia Khan was born in Quetta, Balochistan, to an ethnic Pathan family which moved to Rawalpindi, Punjab while she was young. Khan began her career in Rawalpindi, Punjab.[1][2]



Khan made her acting debut in 1996 on the show titled Pal Do Pal which was written by Haseena Moin.[3] She received recognition for Bandhan (1997), for which she won PTV Best Actress Award In the same year, a drama serial was released from the private sector, Bharam, written and directed by M. Izhar Bobby, in which Khan played a leading role with young Yasir Nawaz. She later started anchoring morning shows.[citation needed]

In 2005, Khan made a comeback to acting and appeared in the ARY Digital soap serial called Koi To Ho, directed by Haseeb Hassan and written by Danish Javed.[citation needed]

In 2011, Lollywood director and producer Shoaib Mansoor, offered Khan a role in his film Bol.


Khan made her television debut in 1993 in the show Daak Time (Mail Time) with Uncle Sargam on PTV.[4] She returned as an anchor on ARY Digital's morning show Breakfast with Nadia. The show went on air from Dubai in 2003.

She interviewed a variety of Pakistani celebrities, artists, performers, religious leaders, athletes and politicians. There were also segments on Islam, health and beauty, and other topics.

The show was banned in 2010 by the Dubai government on behalf of court orders. Sources say that Khan showed Pakistani filmstar Noor Bukhari and her husband fight before Bukhari's interview. Her husband claimed in court that "It was our family matter". Therefore, the court gave out an order to ban Khan's show in Dubai for six months.[5]
