Urwa Tul Wusqua Hussain, better known by her stage name Urwa Hocane (Urdu: عروہ حسین‎), is a Pakistani VJ, model and actress.[1][2][3] Hocane made her film debut in the 2014 romantic comedy Na Maloom Afraad. She walks the ramp in bridal fashion week in Lahore and Karachi. [4]

Early life and career[edit]

Hocane was born in Karachi, but she grew up in Islamabad where she completed her education from Bahria College, Islamabad. She is the sister of another television actress Mawra Hocane. In her teens, she performed as a theatre artist before starting working as a VJ for ARY Musik.[5][additional citation(s) needed] As a sign of filial devotion to her younger sibling Mawra, when Urwa started her career she chose to use the name Hocane[1] and over time, it stuck.


Hocane made her acting debut with leading role in the 2012 romantic drama Meri Ladli alongside Ahsan Khan and Sajal Ali. She later appeared in serials such as Kahi Un Kahi, and Madiha Maliha. In Marasim she portrayed character of a girl who is subjected to family pressures and forced wedding.[6]

She made her film debut in the 2014 romantic comedy Na Maloom Afraad opposite Fahad Mustafa, Mohsin Abbas Haider and Javed Sheikh. The film received generally positive reviews, and she was praised for her performance.[7] She was offered Ekta Kapoor's Bollywood film Azhar alongside Emran Hashmi, which she refused saying that she didn't want to do bold scenes.[8][clarification needed]

Personal life[edit]

Hocane married Farhan Saeed in December 2016 at Lahore, Pakistan.[9]
