We’ve seen countless Pakistani celebrities venture into different areas of entertainment. Whether it’s acting, dancing, or singing- some celebrities have proven to be multi-talented.
We all know that singing requires a great deal of time, effort, and dedication- much like acting. However, some of these Pakistani actors have shown us that they can excel at both at the same time.
Whether it’s as a serious career or a hobby, these following actors are extremely talented singers:
Alizeh Shah is a young Pakistani tv actress who made a name for herself after her role as Palwasha in Ishq Tamasha. Although fairly new to the entertainment industry, the Mera Dil Mera Dushman star has already signed numerous lead roles. But, did you know she’s also good at singing?
The star hasn’t taken up singing seriously, but she has expressed her love for singing on countless occasions. Let’s take a look at her video:
Mohsin Abbas Haider
Mohsin is a Pakistani actor, writer, host, and singer. Many have known him for his role in Na Maloom Afraad, Baaji, and Load Wedding but his fans also know he is an extremely talented singer as well.
He first took off as a singer with his Coke Studio song, Uddi Ja, which he also wrote himself. Let’s take a look:
Sanam Saeed might have landed a job in the entertainment industry by chance, but the actress soon proved she is here to stay. Her passion for singing was proved on the countless occasions she was seen singing as the background vocalist on Coke Studio.
We wonder if we will ever see her as the lead vocalist for a song.
Imran Abbas has a huge fan following for his roles in countless drama series, and of course, for his gorgeous looks. But the actor’s love for singing was proven when he sang the OST for drama shows like Khuda Aur Mohabbat and Kun Faya Kun.
His song at LSA in 2017 shocked the audience as he sang a beautiful song for the actors no longer with us. Let’s take a look:
Sajal Aly has taken up many different roles in her acting career, and her fans have always loved her work. But what many of them might not know is that Sajal is as brilliant a singer, as she is an actress. The star proved her love for singing when she sang the OST of her show O Rangreza.
The actress has never backed out of singing during her interviews, and we absolutely love her voice.
Ahad Raza Mir
Ahad Raza Mir climbed to the very top in the entertainment industry as soon as he entered as an actor. However, he has also had a keen interest in music and singing.
The Yeh Dil Mera star appeared alongside Momina Mustehsan for the Coke Studio song Ko Ko Korina. He was criticized for his singing skills, however, we know that practice makes perfect.
His fans are rooting for him when it comes to him succeeding as a singer.
The Do Bol actress has made a huge impact on the entertainment industry with her acting in several drama shows. But, she is also interested in music and loves singing for hosts during her interviews.
Hira Mani also sang the OST from her show Thays.
We obviously know that the famous Ali Zafar is extremely talented in everything he does. Apart from being an actor, model, screenwriter, producer, and painter, the Teefa in Trouble star is also one of the top singers of Pakistan.
We’ve seen him climb to the top of the charts while also working on several different projects. Ali Zafar seems like he was born with all these talents as he sings and acts so bloody well.
Hania Amir first appeared as an actress, and later ventured into the world of music. After the Ishqiya star sang the OST of Anaa alongside Sahir Ali Bagga, fans were both amused and excited to see her grow as a singer. She’s a fan of rap music and is known to rap effortlessly.
Hania made her singing debut in 2019, and we would love to see more from the new singer.
Fawad is one of the few actors who first appeared as a singer rather than an actor. He was the lead vocalist of the extremely famous Pakistani band Entity Paradigm or ET.
Since he started his career in acting, the Humsafar actor’s music career has taken a back seat. And, fans would love for him to add a couple more songs to their playlist.
Having been a part of a family where music is taken extremely seriously, it’s no surprise that the Load Wedding star is amazing at singing. Although we’ve heard her sing many OSTs of tv shows like Meri Behan Maya, Mirat-ul-Uroos, and Talkhiyaan, we would love to see more from her as a singer.
She also sang on Coke Studio 9, alongside Shiraz Uppal. Let’s take a look:
Ahmed Ali Butt
Ahmed Ali Butt is another actor who excelled at both acting and singing. He first appeared playing the keyboard for the band ET, and later produced many singles and studio albums.
The famous comedian known for his perfect comedic timing is also known for his great rapping skills.
The Pakistani actress, model, and painter is known as the style icon of the entertainment industry. However, she has also made it big as a singer. From singing jingles to having her very own video album, the Bulbulay star has done it all.
Although we’ve seen her acing as an actress, we would also love to see her climb the ladder as a singer.
Farhan Saeed is a Pakistani singer-songwriter, who was offered an acting project after he appeared in the music industry.
He has since been taking up acting projects but hasn’t left his music career behind. And we love to see him excel at both.
Urwa Hocane is an extremely talented model and an actress, however, her first debut as a singer did not win her fans’ hearts. After making a name for herself as an actress, the Udaari actress released her first single in 2016.
Even though she has received a lot of criticism for her singing, the star loves it and wouldn’t let it go for anyone.
The film and tv actor, Junaid Khan, is also a famous singer-songwriter of the Pakistani entertainment industry. The Mohabbat Na Kariyo star was first known as the famous singer from Call, the rock band.
Although he now seems more focused on his acting career, the star made it big as a singer as well. His band has had a massive fan following and countless hit songs.
Kinza Hashmi always wanted to become a singer, however, when the star started getting offers as an actress she was convinced her dream as a singer was over.
Even when the Gul-o-Gulzar actress was offered roles in shows, she tried to convince the producers to let her sing the OST instead.
Recently, the star has made her debut as a singer with a cover of the song Sajna.
Asim Azhar has made a name for himself as a singer and has a massive fan following. He made his debut as an actor and proved to be a brilliantly talented man. However, the success he has had as a singer overshadows his career in acting.
Meesha Shafi has played a few roles in a couple of Pakistani movies and one tv show. However, she really took off as a singer when she first appeared on Coke Studio.
Meesha has performed extremely well as a singer and has been seen alongside famous singers. But, for a very long time, she kept her love for singing a secret.
Agha Ali is a popular actor as well as a singer. The Dil-e-Gumshuda star has had tremendous success in both his careers. We’ve heard several OSTs from the star for shows such as Khuda Dekh Raha Hei and Mere Bewafa.
We think it is safe to say he has climbed to the top both as an actor and a singer.
The Ishq Mein Kaafir star started his music career alongside Atif Aslam but they soon went their own separate ways. Although fans love seeing him in Pakistani tv shows, Goher Mumtaz has also made a name for himself as a singer.
The Maan Jao Naa actor has made a name for himself for countless of acting projects in both Hindi and Urdu movies and shows.
Adeel Chaudhry also has two studio albums to his name, and his fans love his music as much as his acting.
