Badar Khalil, a veteran Pakistani actor left the showbiz industry five years back after feeling dejection from the TV channel owners. She said, “I feel that I am quite disposable and no longer wanted in the industry! Over the years, my crew and most costars have been good to me, but I feel that channel owners and owners of production houses don’t treat seniors like they should. Their attitude is like, ‘Bader Khalil? Put her name in and remove it after a few days’. My name doesn’t always appear in credits; even if I’m doing a strong antagonist or support role, my scene never makes it to the stills or promos. I don’t watch my plays regularly but if I do get a chance, sometimes I wonder why there were so many long shots and why some scenes never appeared on air.”
Well-known and loved folk singer Shazia Khushk left showbiz due to personal reasons. She is famous for singing in different styles and giving energetic performances.
