DP Daily Prompt: First Sight

Whether a person,a pet, an object, or a place,write about something or someone you connected with from the very first second.

I used to watch a lot of Bengali movies sometime ago, once they had an ad for a Pakistani movie, I never watched them I thought they didn’t have actors impressive enough, I still wanted to check it out. Well My feeling about Pakistani movies completely changed because of one actor.

His name was Waheed Murad, he was very different from the ones I watched I liked him the very first second I watched one of his movies. He was handsome, articulate and charismatic. I began watching his movies one at a time and have quite a collection.Overnight he became my most favorite actor.

I was actually amazed to know Pakistan film industry had such a talented actor, I read his biography and found out he was well educated, had an English degree in literature.

I read more about him than any other actor I know, sadly he died at age 45 in Karachi,years ago. I found him and his movies long after his death.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post about Waheed Murad. I have exposed to him through Khurram Sir and our Iqbal studies. I’m so glad that my world opened by being exposed to him.

    All good wishes,
