Sohai Ali Abro (Urdu: سہائی علی ابڑو Sindhi: سھائي علي ابڙو) is a Pakistani actress, dancer and model, who appears in Pakistani serials and films. She is known for her roles in serials such as Geo TV's Saat Pardon Mein (2012), Hum TV's Tanhai (2013), Khoya Khoya Chand, Rishtay Kuch Adhooray Se (2013) and ARY Digital's serial Pyaray Afzal (2014). Abro made her film debut with a supporting role in the 2013 romantic drama Anjuman. Her performance earned her a nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category at Tarang Housefull Awards. Her other films includes Wrong No. and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani (2015) and Motorcycle Girl (2018).
Abro was born in Larkana, Sindh, to a Sindhi family. She is the youngest of her brother and a sister. Her both parents, who were professionally medical officers, died of natural death, when Abro was still a nine-years old.
Abro spent her younger days in Hyderabad, Sukkur and Islamabad. Eventually she moved to Karachi, where she pursued her studies, and later her interest in the theater made her popular with prominent names in the showbiz industry.
Abro made her acting debut with Geo TV serial Saat Pardon Mein opposite Mikaal Zulfiqar and Alyy Khan. She did a dance-performance for a reality show on ARY Digital's Naach. She also appeared in the telefilm Rangraiz Meray, which was aired on Hum TV. Later she appeared in the serial Tanhai opposite Goher Mumtaz, Ayesha Omar, Azfar Rehman, Saba Hameed and Arisha Razi, airing on Hum TV and Kyun Hai Tu opposite Mikaal Zulfiqar and Neelam Muneer which aired on Geo Kahani.
Abro made her film debut with Yasir Nawaz's Anjuman, for which she was nominated for a Tarang Housefull Awards in the Best Supporting Actress category. In 2015, she acted in two Pakistani films, Wrong No. and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, both of which were box-office hits. In 2018, she appeared in biographical drama film Motorcycle Girl, which was based on the life of female motorcyclist Zenith Irfan. It was her first major role in a film, and she received praise from critics for her performance, with Dawn.com states ''Sohai plays the role of the disillusioned but fierce and determined young adult honestly and endearingly. She is charismatic and so, so relatable. This is her shining moment, the role she'll be remembered for.'' Although the film was a critical success, it flopped commercially.
