Atif Aslam has proved his mettle as a singer plus actor. After singing for a long time, his debut with Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘BOL’ was terrific. But, he was not the only one who made his debut on silver screen with this movie. Mahira Khan also made her entry to Pakistani cinema with BOL, and since then there is no stopping her fame.
Now, there is a twist in the story. Atif Aslam has claimed that he is the one due to which Mahira was introduced in films. In a recent interview with a local channel, Be Inteha singer said that Shoaib Mansoor, director of BOL, gave him the liberty to choose an actress opposite him in the film. He was given three options, out of which he put Mahira first and told Mr. Mansoor to cast her in the movie.
He further added that the Zaalima actress was junior at that time, therefore chances of her being in cast without his favour were very slim. It seems that Aslam has finally put down his bait that Khan’s success is due to his big favour given years ago.
Atif Aslam also appreciated all the Pakistani actress who are working abroad, but claimed that Saba Qamar outdid all and was exceptional in ‘Hindi Medium’.
