Nazar was Pakistan’s first indigenous comedian. He made his debut in Punjabi film Gul-Baloch (released on 28th February 1944), which also introduced Indian Playback singer Mohd. Rafi. After partition, he acted in Pakistan’s first feature film Teri Yaad (1948). Later he acted in Pheray – Pakistan’s first silver jubilee film and became so popular that in Judai, Amin Malik cast him as hero opposite Rafiq Ghaznavi daughter Shahina. The experiment did not click, but Nazar earned the honor of being the country’s first comedian-hero. A tall, lean man, he generally played simpleton who would make stupid mistakes to the annoyance of hero, but in the end would help sort out the problems. The style was rather rustic, with physical and verbal gags, which appealed largely to front-benchers. Mostly seen with Zeenat, their pair was quite popular in the early era of Pakistani flms. He won 2 Nigar Awards, the first in 1960, as the best comedian for his role in Humsafar (1960), and the second in 1982 for thirty years of contribution to cinema. Memorable films include Pheray (1949), Judai (1950), Sassi (1954), Baaghi (1956), Noor-e-Islam (1957), Aakhri Nishan (1958), and Ajab Khan (1961).
