LAHORE: After 20 years in Lollywood, Pakistani artist Nargis has decided to bid farewell to showbiz and become a religious scholar, Express News reported.

Returning after two years to Pakistan, Nargis held a press conference at her residence in Lahore where she told the media that she had decided to quit showbiz six years ago but had to continue working to pay off debts and for completing her beauty parlour.

Nargis said that she will now do a scholarly course and hopes that artists who consider her their ideal will also follow the same path.

She rejected accusations of getting Juna Butt killed and swore by the Quran as well.

Nargis also added that she was faced with baseless allegations every time she went on an international trip, adding that this accusation was part of the same.

    She is confirming what we knew long time ago that Lollywood is dead and she has been unemployed for a long time.

    Its a great news to hear. May Allah give her strength to overcome the hurdles she might face and grant her inner peace.

    Funny that as soon as a case of murder against her was brought she has suddenly gone maulana. She sounds like some who is hiding something behind that newly found veil of piety.

    Dear Umer,

    Its never to late to say Yes, further you dont know what is in her heart?
    If you want to do something good, just pray for her and all of us.

    good for her, may Allah guides her to the right path but i bet many people on this page who endorsed her for bidding farewell to INDECENT dance shows would never approve of any1 condemning Pakistan Fashion Week for spreading vulgarity.

    Looks like she is ready to enter politics. Let’s see who went through similar transformation not too long ago: Perhaps, she will join PTI or a similar religion-exploiting party. Or perhaps, she is about to start minting money by producing and creating religious material like, CDs, religious TV shows, etc. Move over: “Maulana” Aamir Liaquat Hussain.

    Sister, may you become an inspiration to the rest of the nation. Let us all turn to Islam and save us from going down.

    I along with many others don’t mind going down on her.

    A person can become whatever they wish – only Allah swt can be the final judge. But becoming religious shouldn’t mean a holier than thou attitude towards others

    Good News !
    There are many examples in history like Nargis.
    She could be a good and exemplary scholar in future, InshAllah.

    I do appreciate her repentance and turning towards Islam but why is she making a mockery of Scholars? You cannot become scholar over night? Moresover there is nothing like Scholar courses.

    @Iqbal: lollywood was ever alive???


    Nov 1, 2012 - 6:48PM

    If it is sincere, it should leave the showbiz complete. And her younger sister to stop the dirty work. Nargis felt today when they are not so young as Sharif weight came on television. Now he wants to earn it……Baki Allah dil ka raz behtr janta hay.
