Whether on the stage or on the screen, Moin Akhtar is one of the most ingenious performers to entertain and amuse his audience/viewers. His sharp wit and humor keep the audience spellbound. He is an inspiration for the generations to come and is one of the few that stand out so distinguishably. He has parodied in several languages, including English, Bengali, Sindhi, Punjabi, Memon, Pushto, Gujarati and others, while in the Urdu-speaking world, he is beloved for providing great humor for people of all ages, and with an etiquette that remains unmatched.

To mention a few of Moin’s great performances, which are really ‘feather in his cap’, the first comes to mind is a comedy play Rosy /Rozy, an instant success, in which he played a role of a female TV artist. Rozy, actually, was an adaptation of Hollywood movie Tootsie starring Dustin Hoffman.
