He also acted in movies ‘Chambailli,’ ‘Actor in Law,’ and ‘Malik.’ After performing in some films, he has shown his direction skills in film ‘Superstar’ featuring Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf. The direction of the movie ‘Dum Mastam’ is his next project.


  • Before the foundation of Hum T.V., he was working with Sultana Siddiqui. So he decided to try his direction in drama-making and finally directed ‘Aseerzaadi,’ Sadqay Tmharay,’ and ‘Angan.’ These dramas turned to be blockbusters. Because of his neighbors who migrated from India to Pakistan, he developed his interest in partition topics. This interest led him to direct eight short movies and one drama ‘Angan’ on the subject of partition.
  • Angan portrayed the internal and familial struggles of migrants. Angan is a novel on partition written by Khadija Mastoor; when Ehtesham announced the creation of drama on ‘Angan’ novel, it got sold out on several book shops. Many people consider Angan as 1st feminist novel on the partition topic, which highlighted the hidden sacrifices of sisters, mothers, daughters, and wives at that time. He never feels shy about evil and disgraceful topics. And exposes issues of political frauds, sexual molesting, and religious intensity and its exploitations.
  • He is expert in turning the storyline from individual to political level. Drama ‘Sadqay Tmharay’ proved his skill of creating intimating and intense scenes. In drama serial ‘Udari,’ he touched the sensitive and painful topic of child abuse amazingly and unexpectedly. A drama titled ‘Firoun’ on domestic violence is under his belt and will be released soon. He also acted in one of the blockbuster drama serials ‘Yaqeen Ka Safar’ opposite Sajal Ali.
