Shan – a real talented actor from Lollywood

Shan - the hero

Shan - the hero

Pakistani film industry is known as Lollywood. Its volume is much reduced as compared to Bollywood and Hollywood. Most of the film makers have joined the industry just to earn and they dont have any sense of film making, which is an art in itself. If we look back in the past, Pakistan made some very good movies even with the less resources. Actors like Muhammad Ali, Waheed Murad, Nadeem, Darpan, Shabnam, Sabeeha Khanam, Babra Sharif and Rani performed at their best and brought success for the Urdu films.

If we look in the present, we dont see many good actors unfortunately and in most of the films we see almost the same cast. However, recently a wave of change has taken place and some good directors have taken initiatives to help the industry come out of crisis. No doubt, no film can be successful without the cast.

Shan is one of the best actors of Lollywood. He is son of veteren film director, late Riaz Shahid. Shan has proved by his work that his work can be compared with any actor of Bollywood. Shan’s dialogue delivery and body language are amazing. His hit movies include ‘Bulandi’, ‘Ghoongat’, ‘Sangam’, ‘Khilona’, ‘Nikah’, ‘Majajan’, ‘Mujhay Chand Chahiye’, ‘Daku Rani’, and ‘Khuda Kay Liye’. Especially his work in the film ‘Khuda Kay Liye’ is just awesome and leaves you breathless in the climax. Shan is the only actor of Lollywood who is successful in both Urdu and Punjabi films. However, Shan works in too much movies which in my opinion is not good as he has to sometime compromise on his acting in some movies and they get flopped. We wish Shan more success in his upcoming projects.



  1. I like him, he has got style and personality. He is not fit for Punjabi (loud) movies in my opinion but he does that a lot.

    Kuhda Ke Liye was one of his finest, efforless performances but I wonder why didn’t he actively promote the movie. Only Shoiab Mansoor and Imaan Ali went ahead with the promotion of the movie.

    And these days Lollywood is churning out movies like “Haseena CNG”, “Haseena Pre-Paid”… :S

    That is pathetic!

  2. Sorry I forgot mentioning one very good movie from Shan. it was “Tere Pyar Mein” in which he falls in love with an Indian girl and goes to India to find her.

  3. shan is good and talented hero but in pakistan there is lack of resources and good writers we are focusing on tradional punjabi movies and when someone talk in punjabi movies even shan so it not reveals orignality of scence.
    Khuda k liye is the outstanding movies and in this movies it seems actor is doing acting in proper way.
