Famous Pakistani actress Shamnam

Pakistani Actress “Jamha Basak” aka Shabnum spread out her Bengali jadoo by her brilliant appearance as “Jharna” in the low budget Pakistani film “Chanda” in 1962. Shabnam later appeared in Lollywood movies “Talash”, “Aakhri Station” and “Darshan”. She silently stole stardom overnight by giving her finest performances. She was destined to become a real superstar, unmatched in the history of our industry. Pakistani actress Shabnam came to the cinema in the mid-1950s, Bengali films included, and her long career stretched to the early 1990s. So that makes it more than 40 years of dominance. When Shabnam came to the west Pakistani industry she instantly developed a new style with a charming Bengali accent. The charm of the Bengali belle captivated film-goers to such an extent that her accent was considered more an asset than a deficiency.

The Shabnam-Nadeem pair in Lollywood made the best team with ace director Pervez Malik. Together they created some of the most successful movies of Pakistan. By her fine performances, Pakistani actress Shabnam was to reach heights of stardom rarely achieved by any other actress before her. In 1979, her film “Aina”, became Pakistan’s longest running film, and was shown for almost five years. In the early 1980s, she continued her dominance by changing her overall style to the modern look and acted in famous Pakistani films as “Naheen Abhi Naheen”, “Bandish”, “Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna”, etc.
