Vaneeza Ahmad is a reputed name in Pakistan’s fashion industry. Born in Pakistan, she later moved to Germany with her parents to study. After returning to Pakistan, she graduated from Kinnaird College with a bachelor's degree in psychology. In her brief stay at the college, she started to model casually. Not much interested in modelling as a career option, she was showered with offers from various fashion designers, some of which were notable in the Pakistani modelling fraternity. Vaneeza divided her time between Europe and Pakistan, on projects from fashion shoots and shows to filming drama serials and television programmes. Ahmad made her acting debut in Jamal Shah's controversial saga, Kal and has since acted in Marina Khan's Tum Hi Tau Ho, Janey Anjaney, Tum Say Mil Ker, Armaan and Talaash. Most famous role to come her way was that of the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah's daughter, Dina Wadia in Jamil Dehlavi's 1998 biopic, Jinnah.
