Two brothers, Sibtain Ahmed Karim Fazli and Hasnain Ahmed Karim Fazli, earned a good name by making social films during pre-partition era. There third brother, Mr. Fazal Ahmed Karim Fazli, an ICS Officer of Govt. of India who was also a renowned poet/ writer. After retirement he started his own film production house with the name of Dabistan -e- Mahdood and started a new film named Shakir with new cast. He himself directed, written and produced this film, initially decided to take Kamal as hero but as the heroine of film Zeba was new so he changed his mind and casted Arif as hero who was an officer in Advertising Committee. Afterward this film proved the first and last film of Arif primarily due to the dynamic personality of the villain of film Muhammad Ali. Muhammad Ali who was initially hired on monthly wages as Assistant to director for rehearsals and dialogue delivery, later on after watching his performance Fazal Ahmed Karim Fazli included him as villain of the film.
