TikTok has fast become one of the most widely-used mediums across Pakistan. Back in the day, there was a time when aspiring actors and singers among other artists, had to promote their talent through physical auditions which were extremely time-consuming – something TV host Nida Yasir also spilled the beans on in the latest episode of her show Good Morning Pakistan. The fairly new and rapidly growing social media platform has now paved the way for youngsters to showcase their skills through entertaining videos and most of them have gone one to become the most-followed TikTok-ers in Pakistan. Here is a list of the stars leading the game on the video-sharing application:
With a following of 11.4 million and 277.9 million likes, she is one of the most famous TikTok stars in the country. Originally from Faisalabad, her bio reads, “Rather be honest than impressive.” She posts a myriad of witty content ranging from singing to acting clips and a whole lot of fashion moments. Twenty-year-old Mirza also takes on several fun challenges on TikTok and loves to post dancing videos in heavily-embellished ensembles. While she is sometimes embroiled in a fair share of controversies, the starlet makes sure to keep her work and passion unaffected.
Hands down, one of the funniest TikTok stars to have graced the platform, Sikandar is naturally talented when it comes to churning out the perfect imitations. He uploads videos on a plethora of subjects, ranging from how to respect women (while throwing some of his humour in!) to shaking a leg on fun songs and more. His profile boasts of 9.8 million followers and 522 million likes. He CAN definitely be a comedian too!
This Pakistani TikTok star is based in the UAE. Followed by 3 million users, her profile is filled with all-time popular songs, posts on friendships and hilarious dialogues from famous films. From dresses to tops and eastern wear, she experiments with all sorts of styles too. Pinky has also collaborated with her friends and other TikTok users and produced some really great content for her fans.
Being talented runs in the family it seems! Yes, she is leading TikTok star Jannat Mirza’s sister. TikTok has awarded the ‘Precious’ badge to Alishba aka (also known as) Lishay for her creative videos as well. She may be “just an ordinary girl”, as her profile description states, but she is surely creating magic and waves like no other. Alishba is followed by 9.3 million users and has garnered 217.4 million likes uptil now. What we love about her is that she is not afraid to experiment, whether it means getting fellow TikTok star and alleged beau Affan Malik’s name on her hand or being OTT while dressed in bridal outfits during her video-making sessions.
Nadeem Nani Wala
He recently made a candid revelation while appearing on Yasir’s morning show this week. The TikTok star disclosed how he became famous! It all started back in 2018 when Nadeem uploaded a video of his grandmother (nani) wearing a seat belt. He woke up to more than 50k views and that’s how his journey began. The TikTok-er is based in the UK. With blonde hair and a distinct sense of style, he makes every video funny and worth watching! He has 7 million followers on TikTok.

Starting off from humble beginnings and hailing from a rural setup, he is one of the most sought-after TikTok celebs in Pakistan today. This happy-go-lucky man has a following of 6.7 million on the video-sharing platform. His fans love him for his superbly curated and well-choreographed videos, which make one feel like they’re watching a scene from a movie. His talent is nothing short of brilliant!
