Pakistan Entertainment Industry is on its peak now providing you with exciting reality and live shows, dramas and movies and there are many movies waiting to be released this year. Surely an absolute great start of this year and this industry is expanding day by day allowing new talent to pour in. This Industry is on a booming stage. Talking about only drama Industry I think this industry worth in billions now moreover the whole entertainment industry is so much powerful now that it had allowed foreigners to jump in and foreign content is also being telecast.
Firstly talking about dramas previously it was HUM-TV that use to give us some quality dramas now Geo-TV and ARY Digital are also in the same row thereby making a BIG 3 in giving us quality entertainment. There are also other channels as well in the race which is A-PLUS, Express Entertainment and PTV-HOME they are also telecasting some good dramas like Previously “Aunn Zara” ON A-PLUS and currently Jaan Hatheli Per on PTV-Home. Different Production houses have teamed up to make this Industry more competitive like A&B Productions, 7th Sky Productions, Momaina Duraid Productions, Big Bang Entertainment, Abdullah Khadwani and Humayun Saeed’s Production etc. Now this is only our Drama Industry coming towards films, ARY group is making extremely great effort for the revival of cinema and to make Film Industry stand on its feet. 2013 was a successful year for Pakistani film industry by releasing films like WAAR, JOSH, MAIN HOON SHAHID AFRIDI, CHAMBELI, LAMHA (SEEDLINGS) etc. Now more films to be released this year and mostly under ARY banner. The entertainment does not ends here we have more variety in the shape of reality and live shows.

So what exciting shows do we have currently, have a look below:
Shareef Show Mubaarak ho: This show is providing us complete entertainment since last 5 years. It is being telecast on GEO-TV and hosted by Umer Sharif. This show is hell lot of entertainment as we experience some Umer Sharif’s jokes alongside conversation with different celebrities.
TUC Lighter Side Of Life: Same kind of talk show on HUM-TV like Shareef Show as different Pakistani Celebrities are invited and have some conversation with the host but you will not laugh by watching this show instead you can judge Mahira Khan’s Immature Hosting. Any ways people are finding this show interesting so do I.
Pakistan Idol: International Singing Competition franchise now being presented in Pakistan. Despite of receiving huge amount of criticism at start now people are tuning into GEO-TV to watch this show, this show is now in an entertaining phase.
Morning Shows: Still I have no Idea what is the basic reason of having these morning shows. Although I don’t watch these pathetic shows but I heard that no sensible topic is now being discussed except to show fake marriages. Never heard of so many weddings taking place in the morning at around 7.00 am when people are leaving for offices. However these morning shows do contribute in providing entertainment.
Wow I must say so much entertainment this year and that’s why you can now see Kareena Kapoor in Pakistani ads and Lawn shoots and that’s why India is booking our artists for their projects because our own entertainment is now at its boom. So still do we have to give priority to foreign entertainment when we had so much of our own entertainment. Please support Pakistani Entertainment Industry and Pakistani Cinemas so that it can help to bring some improvement in the Pakistan’s Economy. Every nation give priority to their own entertainment then why we are so obsessed of Bollywood and Turkish Dramas. Any upcoming entertainment relating to dramas, films and shows you are familiar with? Do share your thoughts on it.
