Breaking the ice


Yasir Hussain is a triple threat: actor/VJ/scriptwriter. His films, Karachi Se Lahore, and Lahore Se Aagey, as well as TV projects Shaadi Mubarak and Nayal have received accolades from the press. His controversial joke at an award show landed him in hot water but the actor has come out strong with his fresh upcoming projects like Kaala Bichu and his hot new look. Yasir chats with Sana Zehra in his inimitable jocular vein
