Waheed Murad did his schooling from Marie Calaco School, graduated in arts and then obtained a Master’s degree in English Literature from Karachi University. Initially, he entered into production but emerged as a young and promising actor. That was the time when heroes were not so good looking and young, then how did they reserve a place for him??? Waheed Murad of Lollywood was the trend setter, who not only changed the stereotype but also turned around the style of dressing, acting and most importantly, the picturization of songs in Lollywood. He danced with so much zeal and energy that he put most of his on screen heroines to shame. Waheed Murad enjoyed the most hits with Deeba, although as a chocolate hero he paired with Rani, Shamim Ara, Shabnam, Babra Sharif, Nisho and Rozina too. He was Pakistan’s favourite hero among girls and crazy fans following. In his hey-days once Waheed Murad went to the Sadar area of Karachi in his white car. Realizing it was Waheed Murad’s car, a group of 30 college girls covered the vehicle with lipstick kisses. He broke many hearts by getting married to Salma in 1967.
