WEB DESK: The 82nd Birthday of Chocolate Hero Waheed Murad is being marked today. The producer, Script writer, Waheed Murad was the first Pakistani actor whose films were celebrated Platinum, Diamond, Silver and Golden Jubilee.
Pakistan film industry remains indebted to Waheed Murad for bringing style and grace to acting; born on 2nd October 1938.
Pop music entered Pakistan through this song; who better to dance on it than the young heartthrob of the era – Waheed Murad.
In what turned out to be the first Platinum Jubilee film of Pakistan, Waheed Murad was at his very best with happy, sad and romantic songs. Ahmed Rushdi (Singer), Sohail Rana (Music), Masroor Anwar (Lyricist) and director Pervez Malik’s association strengthened with this film and stayed strong with numerous hits.
In what turned out to be another hit with Zeba as the leading lady, Waheed Murad was on top of his game thanks to Ahmed Rushdi’s vocals and M. Ashraf’s compositions. The song was released 50 years back but still seems relevant with the dressing and the surroundings.
Murad bestowed life time achievement award and Sitara-e-Imtiaz over his fantastic art acting while he passed away at the age of 45-year-old
