A successful transition from one field to another is a hard row to hoe. Likewise, there are many singers who chose to end their careers in the music industry but never thought of opting for another field, however, there are other talented and bright stars who not only racked up popularity as singers but also showed prowess as actors. We have a list of the most famous singers who made a jump into acting and proved their versatility.

Farhan Saeed

Being one of the band members of the pop-rock band Jal, Farhan Saeed started his career as a singer. Well, one cannot disagree that his attractive looks are never gone unnoticed therefore he chose to show some of his acting skills in the dramas.

Fawad Khan

The Pakistani heartthrob, who has been able to capture nearly every female’s attention with his charisma, began his career with the band Entity Paradigm (EP). With his euphonious voice and charming personality, he made thousands of fans during his time as a singer. He did, however, prove himself over time.
