The likes of Atif Aslam, Ali Zafar, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, to name a few, have already made their mark in the competitive world of Bollywood. Be it casting in the films, or delivering "hit" tracks for those very films, these Pakistanis have surely kept us quite entertained. This trend dates back to the era when Mehdi Hassan gave the most soul-stirring hits to the Indians.

Crossing over the border and making their presence felt in Bollywood with its larger viewer base and far-reaching influence has really helped these artists reach the peak of success in their respective careers. Their consistent work in the industry has lived upto the viewer's expectations and helped them prove their worth in the cut-throat entertainment business.

Ali Zafar's dashing looks, crooning voice, and acting talent has garnered him quite a fan following. His diverse roles in Tere Bin Laden, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and the recently released London Paris New York have got him critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

In the case of the famous uncle-nephew singer duo,  Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, their position in Bollywood as the Sufi authority is unparalleled. Not only have their soulful voices gained them commercial success, but has made them a household name in India.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, in particular, has been particularly active in Bollywood with movies such as Paap (2003), Singh is King (2007), My Name is Khan (2010), Dabangg (2010), among others, featuring his voice.

The man with the boyish good looks, the heart-throb who has mesmerized millions across the globe with his voice, the "Doorie" singer, Atif Aslam, is not far behind his counterparts. He too has made a place for himself in Bollywood with one of the highest female fan following shadowing his every move!

Continuing with the long list, others who have made a spot for themselves in B-Town include singer Adnan Sami and the recent controversy queen, Veena Malik.

One can only speculate over the reasons for these talented and gifted artists to migrate over the border; whether it be due to political tensions or the limited career expansion opportunities in Pakistan or for personal reasons, we sure are glad for their arrival!

We, at BollyCurry, would definitely like to thank them for providing us with countless hours of entertainment!

    I definitely think these artists and more from pakistan have added so much to the industry! It really is great how Bollywood can be such a diverse melting pot!!! So thankful that we got such great talent!!! And even Veena Malik is indeed filling a role too - providing us entertainment with her antics and controversies! Every entertainment industry needs those ;)

    Proud over them!

    But I'm still waiting for a good female Pakistani artist to break through. Maybe women with substance have harder to get attention?
