The name often mixes up the two flawless celebrities of the Pakistan showbiz industry. Therefore introducing him with Ufone is what all you need to know.  Faisal Qureshi is a great entertainer and he normally wears his glasses which were way simple and typical previously, but now, thanks to the new trend, he has also switched to the wayfarer family[5]Faisal Qureshi the ufone man

Before going for further detail of the mobile set, it is important to mention here that Ufone has actually made respond over the Mobilink ad by showing the Nargis Fakhri that was according to the nation a vulgar advertisement.Faisal Qureshi and Mikal Zulfiqar are considered as the best advertiser of the Ufone for acting in the hilarious TV and paper ads of the Ufone that almost goes viral. But this time, Ufone came with a new style although this style is copied from it’s rival cellular company but the idea of using the Faisal Qureshi is totally different.As it is mentioned earlier, Jang Newspaper has taken no kind of risk for publishing the Ufone recent ad in its Quetta edition. Moreover, Ufone and fully used the Desi culture of the country in the shape of Topi and Arabic scarf.[6] Faisal Qureshi ufone curved Ad

Teen Bata Teen

Featuring a trio of roommates — played by Faisal Qureshi, Adeel Hashmi and Ali Tahir as Shafoo — certainly got lots of laughs, as the background score of ‘Can Can’ was the perfect complement to their attempts to make money or get the girl. Salman Shahid as the ‘kharoos buddha’ trying to woo an older woman and getting chased by an invisible dog became the highlight of almost every episode. This kind of light comedy is perhaps what all of us need as an escape from the the seriousness of real life.[7]Teen Bata Teen faisal Qureshi`
