‘Actor In Law’ will be loved by everyone: Fahad Mustafa


KARACHI: Actor Fahad Mustafa starred film ‘Actor in Law’ has completed its shooting spell with which the actor-turned-anchor is extremely happy.

Soon after finishing last scene of the shoot, Fahad Mustafa turned to Twitter, in a bid to express that how happy he was with the film and his performance. 

Featuring veteran Indian actor Om Puri, as his debut film in Pakistan, Mehwish Hayat and Alyy Khan, the film is said to be a light romantic comedy with a focus on social issues.

The idea of the film was conceived by Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza, also the makers of the super-hit Pakistani flick ‘Na Maloom Afraad’ that helped revolutionized Pakistan’s fragile film industry.



“Actor In Law is a different story just like Na Maloom Afraad. In my earlier film, I picked a topic and played with humor around it. In this film, you will find me narrating another unique story. Main Lateefey nahi suna sakta to kahani sunata hon [I just cannot hear jokes, so I tell stories]. I am sure the audience will connect to the story with its engaging plot,” said director Nabeel Qureshi.



‘Actor In Law’ is set to be released on Eid-ul-Adha later this year.

Fahad Mustafa is another popular face of Pakistani fashion and television industry. He was born on 26th June, 1983. Fashion model Fahad Mustafa is a son of well known Sindhi Actor Salahuddin Tunio. Fahad Mustafa is not only an actor but also a model, producer and a host. In fact, at the age of twenty five only, he achieved what takes years to achieve.
Pakistani fashion model Fahad Mustafa started his acting career with the drama serial Sheeshay Ka Mahal in year 2002. Even though drama producer Noor Apa was not very keen on casting Fahad Mustafa in her drama but Fahad Mustafa made such an impression that they casted him but did not give any dialogues. In one interview, Fahad Mustafa said:
“Nur Apa had no faith in me. I just listened to other characters talk and nodded my head. I would get Rs.2000 per day and fortunately the shoots were slow so I made enough money to buy a car. After doing 20 episodes without uttering a single line, I finally gathered the courage to ask Nur apa for dialogues. She said ‘You don’t need lines because you are doing a lot even without speaking.”


Fahad Mustafa took it as a compliment. Drama was certainly a flop and went off air only after 17-18 episodes. But Fahad Mustafa got recognized. After Sheeshay ka Mahal, Noor Apa wrote a separate drama serial for Fahad Mustafa.
Veena was the first drama in which Fahad Mustafa got first leading role. In 2008, Fahad Mustafa also produced her first serial Kaalag on PTV.
