Asad Bukhari

 

 

A versatile villain and hero…..

Asad Bukhari, a box office hit film hero, versatile, symbolic villain with his unique style “Barak” (clattering rattle dialogue) delivery in almost every Punjabi film of seventies and after some silence his comeback as character actor in eighties and nineties, can never be elapsed by movie beaus. He appeared in which ever role/character, either as gentleman “badmash” (vagrant) of Mohalledar, “Ghairatmand” (honorable) friend of Dillan De Soudey, dashing hero of Billa Champion, Billa Babbar Sher, Aasoo of Aasoo Billa, or evocative hero of Khanzada or Nawabzada as actor, was precisely suited for each character, role, and getup. Asad Bukhari possessed a piercing and commanding voice with amusing dialog delivery and implausible body language gave him a unique and prominent place in actor’s streak of Pakistan filmdom. Moreover, as director and producer he delivered the best possible entertainment/showbiz of that time

 

Early Career

Asad Bukhari was born as Khawaja Syed Ejaz ul Hassan Bukhari at Ghakhar Mandi, District Gujranwala in 1934. His insisters were settled in district Kasur and were affiliated with herbal medication (Hikmat) since ages. His father was renowned Hakim and he used to enjoy good reputation even in Eastern Punjab. Subsequently his family moved from Kasur and got settled there at GhaKhar Mandi, District Gujranwala and there he was born. After basic education he started his professional life as Insurance agent but soon after he realized that he is not suitable for this job. Afterward he joined service in Allied Bank but again he also left this job as well. Since his childhood he had inclination towards creative art and culture so he started doing radio program. In the start Asad Bukhari had very close resemblance with Hollywood star Rock Hudson and his friends used to stimulate him to be an actor. One fine morning he moved to Lahore in pursuance of film acting career. He started visiting film studios and finally he was able to find an role in film Be-Gunah.

He was the must and mandatory villain of most of the movies made under the banner of Bhatti Pictures and his combination with Inayat Hussain Bhatti, Kaifee and Ilyas Kashmiri was the most adorable blend of general masses of that time.

Entirely contradictory of his character appearance in the movies as villain, in his real life Asad Bukhari is altogether a different person. Religious emotions were always a predominant factor of his life, which are even clearly visible in few of his movies as well like in Dillan De Soudey, the movie which he directed/produced himself, and performed a lead role in the film so had a free hand to portray his factual mental sentiments. Lal meri patt rakhio bala Jhoole Lalan sung by Noor Jahan, the theme song of the movie is live examples of his deeply involvement in religion and love for the Al -e- Bait. In one of his another films Aasoo Billa, as director, producer and actor, he again projected the religious emotions specially the everlasting hit songs ie Assi aan Qalandri
