The actress is now set to wow us in the upcoming movie Actor in Law set to release this Eid. Apart from movies and dramas, she also made her official singing debut in Coke Studio 9, opposite Shiraz Uppal titled ‘Tu Hi Tu’ in episode 3. However, we think she should stick to acting and dancing more!
The ‘Sun le Sajaniya’ pop star made his entry in B-town in 2010 and became another sensation from across the border. But before Ali Zafar was known for his impressive acting skills, he was famous for his songs such as ‘Chal Dil Mere’, ‘Channo’, ‘Jhoom’, ‘Ullu Da Pattha’, and more. He also got a chance to showcase his skills at Kaun Banega Crorepati in 2014 while promoting ‘Kill Dil’ and at the 15th Lux Style Awards while paying tribute to the Late Amjad Sabri.
Yes, Sanam Saeed too has a singer hidden somewhere under that beautiful skin. Apart from acting and modeling, the diva is also famous for her background vocals in Arif Lohar’s Jugni Ji for Coke Studio. The song was later used in the Bollywood movie Cocktail. Not much can be said about her singing as she hasn’t made a solo performance YET!
Actor Junaid Khan is also the lead singer of ‘Call’- the band. He has not one, but two successful albums titled Dhoom and Jilawatan credited to his name. Although Khan is not a full-time singer, his charisma, and flair make his voice stand out. After back to back acting ventures, Junaid Khan returns to his first love and is set to make his debut on Coke Studio, Season 9 in his signature style and plenty of groove.
The actress made her way to the silver screen with Bilal Lashari’s Waar then The Reluctant Fundamentalist and has also been a part of Bollywood’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

Adeel also released his first debut album in 2009, ‘Koi Chehra’ and his second ‘Raat Ruk Jaa’.
The Bulbulay star made her debut with Coke Studio in season 6 with ‘Laage Re Nain’. However, Ayesha is no good at singing without auto-tune we believe.
Gohar who made his appearance in dramas such as Ghayal and Kathputli is also the founding member of one of the most popular bands in Pakistan, Jal. He was also part of the 2004 release of Aadat, 2007’s Boondh, and 2013’s Pyaas.
