Cinematic film being a team work demand full devoted performance from all artists either they are Directors, Producers, Singers, Writers, Lyricists, Musicians or even Film Journalists. They have their own specific role to perform to make a film worth watching. In Indo-Pak film industry music in the films are included since its inception. We may call it because of the Hindu film Pioneers or if we go back in the history poetry and dance remained the glaring source of amusement in all walk of life. So dances were included in even silent film and first talkie film Alam Ara in 1931, many songs were included in the film. Now the song itself should have good lyrics along with its tune and music. We have experienced that film with weak story was proved super hit film just because of its songs. We have very renowned Musicians in our film history.

Artists appeared in Pakistan cinema as Musicians of film have been included in these pages leaving aside their popularity graph or appearance frequency. Priority is given to their performance and acting over their personal life with their plus and minus. Being property of Pakistan, for every artist is as significant and respectful as anyone else character in the antiquity.
