Nida Mumtaz Entry into Showbiz & Failing in Films
Lately, Nida Mumtaz appeared in Samaa Tv’s morning show, hosted by Madeha Naqvi. In the show Nida talked about her sudden entry in the showbiz industry. Talking about it, she said, “initially, my mother was reluctant about me joining the showbiz, also, as you know I grew up watching the stars like Waheed Murad and Muhammad Ali because of my film background, they were the best people, however, I never thought of joining the showbiz industry. I was quite young when Ptv Lahore’s renowned name Nisar Sahab saw me. He said, ‘why is this girl not working?’, and gave my name to the producers, I fetched a PTV long play as the main lead, it was a big thing back then, it created a buzz because I just got it so easily that too with the main lead like Firdous Jamal. At that time, I was a new person who knew nothing about acting but still I did it, I started movies after a few years but I couldn’t get success in the films because I didn’t know dancing, so, I left films in the middle.
