There may be various reasons not to make it obvious, but it is a well known fact that most Pakistani performing artists and those who are associated with show biz secretly nurture a desire to be part of Bollywood and make it big there. With Indian films being available now for almost unrestricted screening in Pakistan, this desire has naturally grown bigger. It was, therefore, quite logical for Adeel Chaudhry, the singer cum actor from Lahore to actively pursue acting and singing career in the Indian film world. Unlike most others, however, Adeel makes no bones about a desire to join Bollywood in a big way. Those who have followed his career may label it as one dream trip from Lahore to Mumbai for Adeel. After all, it has been indeed been a huge step for him to come out from the near mediocrity of a being a dentistry student in the less prominent corners of the sub continent, to the centre stage of a singing and acting career in the city of dreams. 

Chaudhry was in one way lucky to have got a direct entry into the Indian scene – not through movies or singing, but by virtue of his handsome looks, via the route of a commercial ad for Pepsi. Almost side by side he proved his mettle as a singer, when he got signed up by the Indian recording label Tips for his first single, Mere Haniya, which quite remarkably was not originally a commercial production but was just a self-financed private music video. While this established his singing credentials this side of the sub continental divide, it also provided him the opportunity to spread it further through the number Move Your Body Now which was used in the soundtrack for the Bollywood film “ Kismat Konnection Click to look into! >> Read More... ”, produced by the same Tips Industry.

While there may be room for speculation whether his singing preceded his acting in Bollywood, there is little doubt that he has been able to get himself accepted in Bollywood, and is not just a one-off performer. In fact, Adeel is all set to make his debut as a lead actor in the under production 2015 Indian movie “ Rhythm Click to look into! >> Read More... ”. Not to leave behind his singing, Adeel is also planning to release his second album entitled Raat Ruk Jaa for Indian audiences, coming after the success of his number Kise Awaaz Doon from the 2009 Indian film “Jugaad”. Much would depend on how his latest film “Rhythm” is received, as far as his acting career in Bollywood is concerned, coming as it does close on the heels of the 2014 horror movie “Bhaangarh” – not a terrific success by any count.

Adhyayan Suman

Adhyayan Suman is a well-known Indian actor, who mainly appears in Bollywood films. He was born on January 13, 1988 to Alka Suman and Shekhar Suman, a Bollywood film actor. He was born and raised up in Mumbai and he studied at Utpal Sanghvi School in his early years. He attended London’s Millfield Public School during his Class 8. He is also an eligible filmmaker after he had his diploma in direction at the New York Film Academy.  Acting came to him by chance when actor Ajay Devgan, who made a special appearance in his debut film, spotted him while he was having his haircut at Perry’s. Ajay was looking for fresh faces to cast in the movie Haal-e-Dil at that time. Adhyayan then debuted in the Bollywood romance film Haal-e-Dil, helmed by Anil Devgan. He acted alongside Amita Pathak and Nakuul Mehta and earned nominations at the Filmfare Awards and Stardust Awards for Best Male Debut Actor. Though the film did not make an impact at the box-office and was not able to receive positive feedbacks as well. In the year 2009, he acted in Mohit Suri’s supernatural horror film Raaz: The Mystery Continues. This film starred Kangana Ranaut and Emraan Hashmi in the lead roles and it gained good reviews from the critics and turned out to be a box-office success. It was helmed by Mohit Suri and produced by Mahesh Bhatt. Adhyayan Suman played the main lead role in the 2009 Bollywood film Jashnn – The Music Within, in which he was critically acclaimed. After a long gap, he acted in the lead role in the Hindi thriller film, Dehraadun Diary in 2013. This film is based on a real-life murder and it marked the debut of Ragini Nandwani. This was followed by an appearance in Sajid Khan’s Himmatwala in the same year.  In 2014, Adhyayan’s father has put all his savings to re-launch him in the Bollywood medical thriller film Heartless. Shekhar Suman made his directorial debut through this film but it turned out to be a box-office disaster. In this film, Adhyayan relives the life-story of his real-life brother Aayush who died due to a congenital heart disease in the year 1994.  Adhyayan dated his Raaz 2 co-star Kangana Ranaut in 2009, after they shot the film. But they broke up after one year before his film, Jashnn was released. Adhyayan is currently working on the upcoming Bollywood romantic film Ishq Click, opposite Sara Loren in the lead role.
