Now it has been passed many years when the Pakistani singers started singing in Bollywood films. This trend started by Mahesh Bhatt’s productions and Atif Aslam sang few songs in Indian films. But now we can see that how Pakistani singers have ruled over the Indian films. The biggest name of the current era is Rahat Fateh Ali khan. Rahat is making records of winning awards and number of songs sung for Bollywood. Competition always exists in every field of life whether it is sports or it is entertainment but when it is between Pakistan and India then it never remains competition but it becomes a form of war. There is no doubt that India is far away from Pakistan in film industry but on comparing each other on parameters of talent then there will be an equal competition. Whether they are actors, singers, dress designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, film direction or dramas, in every field both are talented. But the difference is that Pakistan film industry is not very mature and so the Pakistani singers never get platform to show their talent. Indian singers always blame to the Pakistanis that they should not be given chance to sing in Indian films but they always forget that the selection of any singer depends on the decision of film and music directors. Indian singers were also given a chance to sing in some Pakistani films. So it means whether it is Pakistani or Indian there should be no competition over selection in films. Especially when India had terrorist attacks, many Indian musicians and singers said that Pakistani singers should not be allowed to come to India. Some said that Pakistani singers don’t get a chance to become famous across the border so they come here to become famous by entering Bollywood or as terrorists. This kind of attitude makes us sad but still we take it as competition and our singers should not bother for such statements and keep on singing good songs and let the Pakistan be proud on them.

What should we call him; Best Comedian, wonderful parodist, great artist or legend but if we combine all these we would find only one name and that name is MOIN AKHTAR. He was not only a dynamic and versatile performer but a nice human being. He served Pakistan entertainment industry for several years and left world stage on the evening of 22 April 2011. The nation was shocked on the sudden death of Moin Akhtar from Heart Attack.
When we talk about comedians, Moin Akhtar is the first name comes to mind. As a comedian he performed in many TV shows and dramas. Loose talk on ARY was written and produced by Anwar Maqsood and Moin Akhtar played more than 400 different characters in this show. He was the one who always brought smiles on our faces.
He was a wonderful actor. If we look back to the list of his plays then some of memorable plays are Sach Much, Makan No 47, Half Plate, Rozy, Eid Train and Bandar Road sae Keamari. In all these the character played in Rozy was unforgettable in which he played the role of a female TV artist. Not only on televisionhe also acted in many stage shows like Bakra Qiston Pe and Buddha Ghar Pe Hai.
Moin Akhtar was a proud recipient of the Sitara-e-Imtiaz and Pride of Performance. In an interview with Express Tribune he said “Everything I did is a part of history now. To live with history is difficult but there will be people, who will say one day, there was a man who did it and did it so differently.” Yes! He did everything so differently that we cannot forget. Today he is no more with us but he still lives in our heart.
One can have better idea about the next upcoming movie of Shoaib Mansoor which is Bol. On releasing Khuda kay liye he changed the picture of Pakistani film industry. Film won many national and international awards. Pakistani cinema was not ever being able to compete Indian cinema and when the Indian movies were being started to show in Pakistan the film industry of Pakistan had to show a big fall. But no one can change the truth that one project of Shoaib Mansoor can defeat many bollywood movies.
Film is produced by Showman and written and directed by Shoaib Mansoor. The film cast includes Atif Aslam, Humaima Abbasi, Mahira Khan, Shafqat Cheema, Manzar Sehbai, Zaib Rehman & Amr Kashmiri. Shooting is done in Lahore and many students of NCA assisted Shoaib while directing the movie especially in sets design. Just like khuda kay liye, Bol also depicts a story very close to realities of life. A story of family suffering with poverty but holding set of values that we inherit and tightly hold on to it. It will take you into the life of a family with house full of daughters, their sufferings, their emotions, hardships and resolves. It will make you to think the worth of human being.
Atif Aslam, Humaima Abbasi and Mahira Khan are first time appearing on the cinema screen. After being so much successful as a model and actor on television, Humaima is playing a role of daughter who respects the norms and values given to her by parents but she is the one who is affected the most by family tensions.
The expectations are very high and people are waiting to see it on big screen. Fans of Atif Aslam are desperate to watch Atif first time on the screen as acting. And we are in no doubt that Bol would be another hit of Pakistan cinema industry and will let the people proud on talents of Pakistani entertainment industry.
Just Play to watch promo of BOL
