He is currently acting in the drama serial Malaal, shot in NY, alongside Deepti Gupta, Imran Abbas, Sarwat Gillani, etc currently airing in HUM TV.
He was their studying at St. Anthony’s High School, Lahore. I didn’t know that this was going to become my bread and butter. I actually wanted to be a diplomat, perhaps have joined the Foreign Service, I believe life would have been simpler then, says Faisal. At the same time he does not regret the path he had has chosen, This is what I did and since I don’t know anything else, I can’t say what would have been better for me, said Faisal candidly.
Faisal Rehman is a man with the guts and he will soon make his legendary name among the top class actors in Pakistani. Here is a nice collection of some awesome, beautiful and impressive pictures of Faisal Rehman. In this photo gallery, we have compiled a list of beautiful pics of Faisal Rehman that are very attention grabbing and just nice to look at. Let’s have a look and enjoy!
However, after his first play he did not want to continue acting, I hated the pressure, the timelessness of it; as if I was coming from a home where my mother was more or less like a walking, talking clock. I don’t like taking things seriously as I feel once you do this; you forget to find enjoyment in what you do.
For me I have to enjoy what I do, I don’t like working under pressure. Nevertheless, fate had something else in store for him, I had to continue because of my family’s financial constraints. I got twenty thousand for the first serial and after that I started charging the same as Shabnam and all the other actors. Seeing how fate led him towards his destiny, he has a very interesting take on it, Fate and destiny, everybody loves to believe in, as it’s convenient. Life would be too dull and boring without all these mysterious forces, he commented.
I couldn’t help asking where his good looks come from. Again the dimple appeared, transforming him into a twenty year old boy, and he said, Well, I’m a blue-blooded, Persian speaking Afghan. He hails from the famous Mohammadzai clan of Kabul, who ruled that country for over a decade.
His ancestors migrated to Pakistan in 1905. I’m so glad we shifted as when the British invaded Kabul, they killed all the members of the ruling family, he told me. His uncle and his father went to India to try their hand at acting. My father couldn’t make it as his voice was too husky and unsuitable for films. However, my uncle succeeded in becoming a renowned actor. His name was Rehman, who appeared in films like Sahab Biwi Aur Ghulam, Nargis and Khaghaz Kay Phool, said Faisal.
A very surprising revelation is that after twelve years into his acting career, Faisal packed his bags one fine day and took off for Canada. I just got bored and was feeling that life was becoming stagnant. That was one decision of my life that I feel was the turning point.
Five years in that country taught me a lot, he told me. It was a blast, my work was partying and having fun! This was a very refreshing trip as when I came back, I had new ideas and my thinking was creative. In addition to learning French in Canada, this hunk is fluent in Persian, English, Punjabi and Urdu.
However, once he got back he returned to acting, I realised that there was nothing else I could do, and like all Paki men I’m lazy. Acting always came naturally to me. The reason why he decided to come back to Pakistan was because after a while he missed his mother, his land and his city.His view about his work and profession is extremely interesting; I have never till this day taken my work seriously. Where we go wrong is when we start taking our lives and our work too seriously. One has to learn to let go; as they say, when you make mistakes you learn, once you let go of the pressure you grow and excel in your work.
Mocked Faisal likewise feel humans have started to take themselves away seriously, I forgot to laugh at itself, everything is for them to become very serious, they need to take the cold, the pill, and continued, nothing really great is to go to any ever happen to any one of us, but this is my life and I must love and make the most of a few moments and I have. So, people here need to just relax. What if I say or do something wrong, it’s not the end of the world, and who cares what people think. Is bound to be judgmental in any case.
Furthermore he feels that people should not be judged for their personal preferences, One is good or bad because of what he does in the world, and his personal life cannot turn him into a good or an evil person. If people still want to be judgemental, let them! laughed Faisal. I could not help wondering how he managed to look so young, and as if reading my mind he added candidly with a smile, A lot of people ask me why I look so young and I always tell them; break away from the monotony in your life.
Do and experience new things. Stay happy and do things that give you pleasure, go to the gym. Plus, he proudly admitted that he loved his bachelor life, I would advise everyone to remain single, you can get up and do anything, shift to another country, go anywhere without having to worry about kids and wives.
The one thing that he doesn’t like is the pseudo-intellectual people, or so-do-intellectuals, as he calls them. They pretend they know all, but they know nothing! With their zero-numbered glasses and talking about politics and pretending they know it all! On the other hand these liberals, try to impose their views on people! They all need to realise that the spice of life is not becoming and thinking alike, it’s the diversity; it’s the difference in perception and views.
But, all of them are too busy talking and have failed to listen. I term these liberals as fundamentalists, as they are also trying to force their ideas on people. We are all different and we should celebrate it rather than shun it!
The one person in his career that taught him a lot was Babra Sharif. He stated that one person that he feels is a great actress today and whom he is extremely fond of is Nadia Jamil. I love her for the person she is! She is who she is and for being an extremely genuine person, at the same time she is an excellent actress, he commented Faisal.
He came across as an extremely positive and vivacious person. The reason for this he claimed is, That I’m still a child at heart. My mind understands things and is prone towards futuristic ideologies, but there is a part of me that refuses to grow and is stubborn and angry, I have probably inherited this anger from my Afghan genes.
I can never be on guard when I’m talking, I don’t understand why it’s such a big deal if you say something wrong! He feels people are constantly pretending. I can’t bear to have a conversation with the people from the party crowd for more than five minutes; they are so pretentious and superficial! There is nothing wrong with partying, but sadly people have become more self-indulgent and have stopped working.
Fun is good and healthy, but you have to achieve something in life. It’s sad that in all these years not one actor has come up who could have taken my place. It’s good for me, but by now some new young talent should have come up and replace me. That’s how a country and their people progress, he stated.
I also like going into a vegetable state, where I’m just eating, sleeping and not thinking at all. This state of nothingness regenerates one’s soul and mind. As we were deeply engrossed in our conversation, a chocolate mousse cake arrived with compliments from the management. It would have been more exciting if some cute person had sent it, laughed Faisal.
We dug in the cake and resumed our conversation. Art is nonsense! Gave the world the meaning of it is limited. Anything in the cage, the border will not evolve. Art has become a commodity, such as cigarettes, while it should have helped people to be more creative and feel free to explore anything and nothing in the world. I hate when people say my work is art! It’s not that I hate the artwork. Art is freedom! Absolute freedom of expression and ideas. And saw Faisal.
The future of the Pakistani film, he feels alive only if they focus on the films Punjabi, Punjab, here in India’s huge and has a lot of commercial potential, and that is if that is a policy that allows at least a few movies of the will in India and vice versa.
However, he compared with India and Pakistan with Hollywood and British cinema respectively. India is making a lot of commercial films and more nonsense, very little good things is to get out of there. Should be for all the actors of our current business and manage the transition to India, then perhaps young people, and different managers will come in Pakistan, and then we can become like Britain producing less, but the quality of work.
I do not know why we look to these Indians, and we are in a race the best looking and smarter. I hate it and degrading it when people here make this a big fuss about Indians and sit in their own country, and laughing at us for being such idiots.
