Pakistan People Party (PPP) leader Asif Ali Zardari started his career as a child artist in a Lollywood movie ‘Salgirah’. He played the role of the young Waheed Murad in 1969 film.
We have come across an iconic video where Zardari is seen showing his utmost acting skill in an old Pakistani film. We were amazed by his talent and expressions in the film. He definitely nailed it!
Zardari, according to his birthday, was 14 years young when he worked as a child star in this film. The film had a melodious love story which was directed by Qamar Zaidi and produced by Najma Hassan.
The perfect dialogue delivery made Zardari a confidant child star actor in that film. Although Asif Ali Zardari, who is the current leader of Pakistan’s one of the top political parties, has not seen, showing his acting skills again in any other film of Pakistan.
The film cast included Pakistani stars Waheed Murad, Shamim Ara, Tariq Aziz, Santosh Rissal, Nirala, Nighat Sultana, and Talish. It was a super hit film.
It also has an all-time nation’s favourite songs ‘Meri Zindagi Hai Naghma’ and ‘Lay Aai Phir Kahan Par’ by Melody Queen Madam Noor Jehan.
Well, we are surprised and wish to see him acting more (wink).
Other politicians in the acting field
Not only Zardari, many other politicians were also part of the showbiz industry. Sharmila Farooqi had also starred in a PTV drama serial that went by the name of ‘Panchwaan Mausam’. Another former PPP member, Fauzia Wahab, who was one of the most prominent leaders of the party had starred in a PTV drama serial by the name of ‘Kohar’. It was the world of showbiz that paved the way for Wahab to take part in politics.
