Art has no limits and art knows no boundaries and that's why we have seen several actors and musicians from across the border trying to make a marl in our country.
Why just them, even Indian artists cross boundaries like A.R Rahman have tried to make a mark in other parts of the world. But the latest fad is that of the Pakistani actors finally making the bold move of entering Bollywood.
There was a time when these actors who entered Bollywood would be shunned by their own country, for example how they banned actress Veena Malik owing to her over the board skin exposure. But the actor who managed to break the barriers and make mark in the cinema industries of both the countries and still be respected is actor Ali Zafar.
He is one of the only actors from across the border who has made a huge mark in Bollywood and has an established career here in both singing and acting.
Another actor who obtained fame is Fawad Khan when he debuted in Khoobsurat opposite Sonam Kapoor but the film bombed at the Box office and he failed to garner the much need boost for his career.
He did manage to impress the female population of the country with his looks if not his films. The latest entry to Bollywood from Pakistan is actress Mahira Khan who'll be acting alongside Shahrukh Khan in Raees.
Now we do not know how this movie will fare or if Mahira will be able to impress us with her Bollywood stint but we do know that a lot is riding on this actress and we hope that unlike her seniors in the industry, Mahira manages to make a successful debut and is here to stay.
But before that let us take a look at some of the Pakistani talents who failed to impress us in Bollywood.
Zeba Bhaktiar debuted opposite Rishi Kapoor but she was more in news owing to her marriage with Javed Jaffery which she denied but the actor later proved it with the marriage certificate. She even got married to Adnan Sami and divorced him as well.
Fawad Khan debuted in Bollywood in Khoobsurat in which he acted alongside Sonam Kapoor. The film was a huge flop but the actor ended up getting a lot of female fan following.
Javed Sheikh has done pivotal roles in Om Shanti Om and Namaste London but he is much more famous actor in Pakistan than he tried to be in Bollywood.
After a failed debut in Bollywood actress Somy dated Salman, when the relationship failed she quit the industry and settled abroad.
Sara Loren gained some recognition with her lead role in Murder 3 but after that she has not done anything substantial. Her first debut in 2010 was also a huge flop.
Humaima Malick also failed with her debut in Raja Narwarlal opposite Emraan Hashmi. The actress has not signed a Hindi movie post that debacle.
The actress who tried everything to sustain in Bollywood from a B grade movie to a reality TV show, the actress has tried it all.
Imran Abbas, the actor who debuted in Creature 3D also failed to impress us with one of the most horrible films we have seen in Bollywood.
