Eshita Mehboob, born as Eshita Mehboob Syed in year 1985, is a Pakistani model and television actress. She is a pure Bengali and her parents were from Dacca, where she was also born. Her family moved to Pakistan when she was three years old, due to the nature of her father’s business. She was raised up in Karachi and studied at Saint Patrick’s High School for Girls and later graduated Bachelors in Psychology, Library Science and Islamic History in DHA College for Women. Eshita admits that she was never a good student as she always gets in trouble with her teachers for several reasons and one of it is the many piercings she has, which is not allowed on her school, but Eshita was fond on doing extracurricular activities like basketball, karate (she is a green-belter) and acting in school plays.
Her first break was from the music video of the song Suno Ke Main Hun Jawan by the band called Noori, followed by the titular role in Geo TV’s telefilm entitled Babli Ghar Se Kyun Bhagi. After this, she started to receive several offers and casting calls, but she credits her success to her friend, photographer and stylish Akef Iiyas. Akef made her believe in her own talent and made her very first portfolio and photographs. Eshita got rebellious when during her teenage years and she said that this is because of the passing of her elder sister while giving birth. This caused her depression as she was not close to her parents. But her friends helped her in regaining the energy and the strength to stand up and move on with her life. Now, she is more confident with a positive outlook towards life.
She got married to Ahmer Nawaz, a banker. They shared 11-years of boyfriend-girlfriend relationship before they finally decided to tie the knot. The actress believes that it is a mistaken belief that an actress will soon end her career after getting married; in fact, she feels that better projects came her way only after her marriage.
