There is absolutely no denying the fact that Pakistan has a horde of talented actors and actresses. In fact our television industry produces some of the very best dramas in the whole world.
Many of our film actors started off their careers as television actors and became successful in the medium. However, when these actors opted for doing a film, some of them badly flunked. A number of successful Pakistani television actors had their first films flopped on the box office.
Here we bring you a list of Pakistani actors who didn’t manage to impress the audience with their first film;
Shahroz Sabzwari’s cinematic debut came along Syed Noor’s Chain Aye Na. The film turned out to be a major disappointment not only for its viewers but also for the actors as well. Adil Murad too acted in the film and so did Sarish Khan. Both have been lost from the showbiz front, ever since then.
Eshal Fayyaz made her screen debut with Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s Kaaf Kangana. The film not only flopped but also didn’t manage to earn any good reviews despite having been a joint Khalil ur Rehman Qamar and ISPR production.
Although Saeeda Imtiaz has filmed Kaptaan first, the film awaits it release yet and Saeeda’s first film turned out to be Javed Sheikh’s Wajood. Saeeda was cast opposite Danish Taimoor and the film was a major flop on the box office.
Syra featured in the multistarrer Chalay Thay Sath. Although the film promoted cross border friendship and had a different approach, it toppled on the box office and couldn’t earn big monies.
Sajal Aly & Feroze Khan
Sajal Aly and Feroze Khan both made their cinematic debut with Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai in 2016. Although an acclaimed actress, Sajal’s debut film was a big flop in cinemas across Pakistan.
Sahir Lodhi debuted on Pakistani cinema with Raasta. The film, a major flop, garnered a lot of negative reviews and failed to excite the audience or the critics both. Raasta turned out to be a big disappointment.
Noor Hassan & Sanam Chaudhry
Noor Hassan and Sanam Chaudhry made their cinematic debut with Jackpot. The film came and went on cinemas but didn’t earn any money. Even after it was re-released, it failed to make an impact.
Although he had worked in a number of Bollywood films before, Adeel Chaudhry made his Pakistani film debut with Maan Jao Na. Again, the film was a big disappointment, not only for Adeel but also for Irani actress Naaz Nourozi.
Haroon Shahid made his cinematic debut with Shoaib Mansoor’s Verna. Although the film had the makings of all the hit, with Mahira Khan in the lead and Shoaib Mansoor as the director, it turned out to be a failure on the box office.
