The relations between India and Pakistan are blossoming for artists and those with a creative bent. The glamour, booming economy and freedom of expression are luring many young females from across the border. They are actually ready to give up name, fame and money to move over to this side.Bollywood is suddenly witnessing an upsurge of Pakistani actresses that want to be casted in movies and television. Mumbai is already bursting at the seam with aspiring actors and actresses, who leave their hometowns to make it big in the city of dreams. In this already saturated industry what chance do young females from Pakistan hold, only time will tell.
Next we give you a list of Pakistani females, who are enjoying the safe and glamorous haven India has to offer.
5. Humaima Malik
Humaima is a chatter box with exceptional looks. She has been in the news for dating Wasim Akram when she was 23. We wonder if Wasim AKram really wanted this juicy bit out, since he was 45 at that time. Born in Quetta, she has come a long way in making a mark for herself in Pakistan entertainment industry.
In her upcoming movie,Raja Natwarlal, she is paired with Emraan Hashmi. There is news that Vidhu Vinod Chopra wants to cast her in his nextmega project ‘Chitthiyan’. She has already undergone a look test with ace cinematographer Binod Pradhan. She has always been very open about herlife and had no qualms about disclosing the fact that she is a divorcee.
Meera has been in the news for the wrong things always. Either she invites trouble or else it follows her everywhere she goes. She was in the news for her movie with Ashmit Patel in which she agreed to do bold scenes.
There were death threats too, to condemn her role in the movie. Meera has gained more publicity through her controversies than good work on stage. Actresses like her are soon sent packing to where they came from.
3. Veena Malik
She has been ideally coined as Pakistan’s Controversy Queen and rightly so too. The lady claims to personify Pakistani culture and women. Even a blind man can sense that she fails miserably at it. She first came in the news for being linked up with Aasif, one of the cricketers embroiled in match fixing controversy.
Later she was seen giving body massages to Ashmit Patel, on primetime TV India, as a house mate in Big Boss. But she did not stop at being a masseur, as a topping on the cake she went ahead posed topless for FHM magazine wit ISI printed on her arm. We wonder if there are men and women in plain clothes out on the streets with instructions to bring her down.
2. Nargis Fakhri
Okay, she is not exactly a Pakistani but her father is one. She is an American national with roots in Pakistan.Her debut role is what most girls dream for. Paired against industry heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor, she was launched like no other in Rockstar. Her looks and her poise got her zillions of fans over night, but her poor acting skills got her very few admirers.
She has already done a small stint of not so successful movies. The lady however enjoys attention from the likes of Uday Chopra. We hope she sticks around to give a memorable performance or two, before she joins the list of unsuccessful actresses from across the border.
1. Mehreen Saeed
Is presently a little known name in India, but she is a household name in Pakistan. It is believed that director Sanjay Puran Chauhan had to do quite a lot of hard work to get her to agree her to do his venture.
According to sources, she has agreed, after hearing that the movie has some important backdrops set in Pakistan. We wish her luck and loads of success.
