Appearances are very important in the showbiz industry. How you look, your weight, height, complexion and even hair is questioned when you come on screen as an actor. We have seen many actors transforming themselves and losing a lot of weight to get more work. Muhammad Hunbal aka Sabz Ali from Sang e Mah and Khurshid Firdous from Ehd e Wafa also had to do it.
Hunbal started out his career as a background dancer in Parwaaz Hai Junoon. It was then he was asked to lose a little bit of weight while he was still a student.
