The film 'Quli'director,
Mustafeez, composer, Ali Husain, stars, Nadeem, Shabana, released in
former East Pakistan.
Dedicated artist and dashing
heartthrob of the film 'Fasana-e-dil', Nadeem incites the pride and
passion of Pakistan, both at home and abroad:
'Fasana-e-dil': Director, Zafar Shabab,
Nadeem, and Deeba.
'Daman ki Aag': Director, Zafar Shabab,
'Deewangi': Director, Zafar Shabab,
Nadeem, and Deeba.
Nadeem's fame knew no bounds and in
1968, he migrated to what was then West Pakistan, where the film
producers and directors had been impatiently waiting to cast him in
Movies like 'Daagh' lend the agog
('Daagh', director, Ehtesham, stars,
Nadeem, Shabana, released in 1969, in former East Pakistan)
Shabab Kiranvi's son, Zafar Shabab,
selected Nadeem for his movie, 'Sungdil', opposite Deeba and Rozina and
which undoubtedly appealed to the audiences.
'Sungdil' was also the debut movie for
Masood Akhtar, who played the role of a villain.
Both audiences and critics alike
equally cherish the film 'Anari'. ('Anari'1969, director, Mustafeez,
Nadeem, Shabana, released in former East Pakistan)
In 1974, while Nadeem was residing in
Pakistan, director Ehtesham, Nadeem's father-in-law, flew to Pakistan
from Bangladesh, to visit his son-in-law, daughter Farzana (Nadeem's
wife) and his grandson (Nadeem's son).
During his stay in Pakistan, Ehtesham
directed Nadeem's production, film 'Mitti kay putlay'.
In 1984, Nadeem went back to
Bangladesh to work in Ehtesham's movie, 'Basayra', opposite Shabana.
Nadeem, who is largely recognized as
an insignia of success, radiates pride in the choices he has made:
The film 'Shama' director, Nazar
Shabab (Zafar Shabab's brother), Stars, Nadeem, Deeba.
The film 'Badaltay mausum' director,
Nazar Shabab, stars, Nadeem, Shabnam.
The film 'Khoobsoorat' director, Nazar
Shabab, stars, Nadeem, Shabnam.
His movies are usually watched with
the premise that good triumphs over bad.
Behind Nadeem's extraordinary
achievement is a remarkable inspiration of his mentor, Sohail Rana and
The film 'Mun ki jeet' director,
Shabab Kiranvi, Nadeem, Shabnam.
The film 'Daman aur chingari'
director, Shabab Kiranvi, Nadeem, Zeba.

The film 'Unmol Mohabbat' director,
Shabab Kiranvi, Nadeem, Shabnam.
The film 'Lajawab' director, Shabab
Kiranvi, Nadeem, Babra Sharif.
The audience was still expanding and
the time had come in Nadeem's acting career when film buffs had to
concede: 'This guy had it all.'
Nadeem feels complacent by the fact
that his hard work affects millions of his fans the world over.
Here is a more fulsome tribute: Nadeem
have proved time and again that he is simply unchallenged.
Also, the mere fact that he has always
kept himself away from scandals relegates him to the greatest film
personalities of the Indo-Pak subcontinent.
S.Sulaiman directed following movies:
The film 'Society' Nadeem, Shabnam.
The film 'Tera gham rahay salamat'
The film 'Intezaar' Nadeem, Shabnam.

obviously go a long way to ameliorate the future cinema of Pakistan.
Nadeem definitely has a resolution and
an edge over most of the film actors of his time and his predecessors,
'By the grace of God, the movie career
has given me name, fame and money', he mused, with a gleam in his eye.
The film 'Ungaray' director, Fareed
Ahmed, stars, Nadeem, Shamim Ara.
The film 'Suhaag' director, Fareed
Ahmed, stars, Nadeem, Shamim Ara, Zia Mohyedin.
Being there for his co-workers, gives
him a phenomenal edge. As impressionable as ever, Nadeem is known to
stir interest in the genre among Pakistani youth.

The film 'Chiragh kahan roshni kahan'

also an unabashed call to attract moviegoers from all walks of life. The
fans of Nadeem are a witness to the height of his artistry. Hence they

the pillars of our social life, a delightful companion to the life of
the 21-century Pakistan and an endlessly fascinating personality in his

Nadeem loses himself in his work and
he has always done justice to it. A quick example is the film 'Play

Nadeem had the rare honor to won the
maximum number of Nigar awards, eighteen altogether.
After bestowing the eighteenth Nigar
award to him, the Nigar award committee came to the conclusion that
Nadeem is peerless, that Nadeem's brilliant acting is above all awards.
Besides, to present an award to him is
to undermine his superfluous art.
Given here below is a list of Nadeem's

Further, apart from receiving eighteen
Nigar awards, Nadeem had been declared to be the winner of this
prestigious award continuously for eleven years in a row, which itself
is a feat that has never been and might never be seen in the annals of
the Pakistan film industry.
Lately, Nadeem have appeared in
character actor roles in the films.
Most recently, he gained a lot of
appreciation in the Pakistan television's drama serial 'Besaat'.
Perhaps, one of these days, Nadeem
will decide to quit, and then the absence of his larger-than life silver
screen image will definitely leave a cavernous hole, which may never be
Scores of movies which
affirms unimpeachable integrity of Nadeem as an actor of the highest
repute would certainly stand as a beacon to young, enthusiastic men and
women to guarantee that the beacon they would lit would survive.
