YouTube is an essential entity for the majority of people. We use YouTube for various reasons, including watching videos, tutorials, and food recipes. In addition, you can find many, especially women, who rely on YouTube to get the latest celebrity news in Pakistan.
However, an interesting aspect is that YouTube has become one of the most preferred digital media among Pakistani celebrities. Indeed, it is a suitable medium for all those already known in the industry, and they can get an overwhelming number of views and likes on YouTube very quickly.
This blog lists the 5 most famous Pakistani personalities associated with showbiz who started their YouTube channels and became popular on social media.
Most Popular Personalities With Successful YouTube Channels
Kylie Jenner, Will Smith, Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’, and so many Hollywood celebrities have successful YouTube channels. Many locals in Pakistan, including Nadir Ali, Qasim Ali, Amna, and others, have reached celebrity status based on their popular YouTube channels.
Here are some known Pakistani celebrities who started their YouTube channels a few years ago and became popular across the country:
Everybody knows Shaista Lodhi, one of the renowned celebrities in Pakistan. One of her famous TV shows was her morning show, and she served the TV for many years. She also runs a cosmetic clinic located in Karachi. It can be said that she is an influential ambassador of healthy living.
Her YouTube channel is more like a talk show. So, it is astonishing how she gets the quality time to run it all. She often invites other celebrities to her show for a frank conversation.
Shoaib Akhtar was a famous cricketer (fast bowler) who represented Pakistan from 1997 to 2011. Throughout his career, he was known for his fast pace and thus given the name of Rawalpindi Express.
After a memorable career as the best fast bowler, Shoaib launched his YouTube channel in 2019 before the ODI World Cup. He launched his channel when cricket was the hot topic online and offline. Shoaib took a smart approach and benefited from that moment by quickly hitting a million subscribers.
You can imagine the influence of celeb status in the YouTube world. If your fanbase is strong, you are more likely to grow faster with your own YouTube channel.
Najam Sethi is a Pakistani journalist, businessman, and the founder of The Friday Times and Vanguard Books. Another prominent aspect of his life is his chairmanship of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Now, he owns a popular YouTube channel.
His YouTube channel is a platform for others to stage their opinions. Most of the topics discussed are related to his all-time favorite ‘politics’ and ‘sports’.
For some years, we have been noticing that most political journalists have introduced their YouTube channels. And Talat Hussain is another example of this growing trend.
Yahya Hussaini is a known sports journalist, and he became famous for his sports show on Geo Super. He is also the person who launched his YouTube channel and keeps his audience updated with cricket-related news.
Yahya is on YouTube to voice his sports-related opinion, especially about cricket. He recently launched his YouTube channel and has been getting significant attention from cricket lovers who intensely wait for insider news on the national cricket team.
Samina Peerzada is a graceful television actress who impressed us through his influential performance. Her performance in the PTV dramas captured the audience’s minds and attention. Samina remains a living legend, but we’ve not been seeing her performance for the last many years. She is currently running a YouTube channel, and perhaps it is the reason behind her disappearance on the TV screen.
She has an agency to run her YouTube channel. This level of attention has resulted in getting a lot of attention from her huge fan following. Her famous heart-to-heart talk show, ‘Samina Peerzada Show,’ is sponsored by Fair & Lovely.
