In another world, won’t you just love to see what other career choices your favourite celebrities would have chosen had they not been actors? Yes, we think so and wonder as well, which is why we decided to pick alternative careers for these 10 Pakistani actors both, male and female to see what other profession they could possibly represent.
The alternative careers for these 10 Pakistani actors have been chosen based on what we know about them or perceive, and most likely would would interest you, the reader 😉
So here are, what we think, could be the alternative careers for these 10 Pakistani actors.
IMRAN ASHRAF AS A PHILOSOPHER
Even though Imran Ashraf is one of the finest actors our country has today and we also know that he’s a very good Writer as well who can read between the lines and looks beyond words by delving into the human emotion. So we think he’d be a right fit to be a Philosopher for his fun yet humble personality with a lot of healthy advice for everyone.
SAJAL ALY AS A NOVELIST
Sajal Aly is one of the finest actors we have today, however had she not been in the industry, we’d peg her alternate career to be that of a Novelist because of Sajal’s unique looks and nostalgia-filled eyes, they give off that kind of vibe where she can thrive in her own mind and space, buzzing with words in her head and unrequited emotions.
BILAL ABBAS KHAN AS A SALESPERSON
Bilal Abbas is that cute looking college boy who can sweet talk his way with those innocent eyes so the job of a Salesperson would fit him. People buy with their emotions and one look at this guy and we’d purchase anything from him.
SHAAN AS A SPY
We’ve grown up watching Shaan’s movies but over the past couple of years the actor has drawn some unwanted attention over his remarks and getting offended with the critics for critiquing his work negatively. So we’d like for Shaan’s alternate career to be that of a Spy who’s keeping an eye on everybody’s move, who signed which film to keeping tabs on the lead actor using his analytical skills so we can hear his professional opinion on the acting, plot development, writing, directing, editing and cinematography of films.
USMAN MUKHTAR HEADING A MARRIAGE BUREAU
We love Usman Mukhtar and liked his last performance in Sabaat, but for his alternate career we’d pick him to head a marriage bureau because every time he works with a female actress, she gets married. So this has become a national joke (for good laughs, of course). From Naimal Khawar to Sara Khan, who’s next? Mahira or Kubra Khan?
SABA QAMAR AS A TALK SHOW HOST
Saba Qamar is such a trail blazer and is much revered for her work in the TV and Film industry. She may not always be in the news but she never fails to impress us when she is, whether it’s gossip or a sensational video with a public message. Saba is quick-witted and can add masala to anything so her alternative career would probably be that of a talk show host like Karan Johar because this girl knows how to make news.
IMRAN ABBAS AS A COSMETOLOGIST
Imran Abbas may not have shown that spark an actor should have, but he certainly has good looks, and the guy doesn’t age. So his alternative career should probably be that of Cosmetologist or a run an aesthetics clinic to share the elixir of good looks and how-to-never-age with the youth!
SYRA YOUSUF AS A FASHION STYLIST/DESIGNER
Syra is such a diva and so very classy, I think anybody would be charmed by her because she’s evolved so gracefully when it comes to her personality, taste and style. So Syra could totally be a Fashion Stylist or a Designer with an “out of stock” collection.
UZAIR JASWAL IN THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMEN’S RIDE CLUB
We all know what a awesome singer Uzair Jaswal is, however he also has a passion for something else other than singing, which would be his alternative career as well, i.e running the Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride Club because of his love for motorcycles. The full throaty buffed up beasts he is on when he isn’t singing. Wouldn’t it be great to ride motorcycles and also for a cause?
MEHWISH HAYAT AS AN ACTIVIST
Mehwish Hayat has elevated her status from actor to being actively representing Pakistan on multiple platforms both, national and global. And she speaks for things that matter, so had she not been an actress, we’d hope for her to be a Social Activist fighting for justice and spreading good vibes.
