Did you know?
Did you know that Pakistani celebrities were not always living the life of glitz and glam? Many stars have made it big in the industry after years of struggle with small jobs and labor work. Here is a list of 5 celebrities who started their career in entertainment from a very different path:
1. Bilal Ashraf
In an interview, actor and model Bilal Ashraf expressed that he worked as a hedge fund consultant in New York City before getting into dramas and films. How the man switched to the entertainment industry after working in a consultancy firm is still a mystery.
2. Mahira Khan
Although it may seem like Mahira Khan was always associated with a life of glamor, it isn’t true. During her studies in the US, the diva worked as a drugstore cashier to earn some money for personal expenses.
3. Momina Mustehsan
Momina Mustehsan looks like she was custom-made for the world of music and entertainment, especially after gaining such a massive fanbase thanks to her association with Coke Studio. However, her Instagram bio reveals that the singer has been dabbling in the field of engineering. Kudos to Momina Mustehsan for being a beauty with brains!
4. Imran Abbas
Pakistan’s heartthrob Imran Abbas also surprised his fans with his exciting degree choice. The model and actor seemed to be working towards a degree of architecture! His artistic streak isn’t limited to showbiz.
5. Ali Zafar
Ali Zafar is another artsy celebrity who started on a different career path but ended with entertainment. Before his successful career as a musician and actor, Ali Zafar was a painter. During an interview, he confessed that he’d be the same guy who used to draw and sketch at a hotel lobby.
