It’s a trend that when actors or actresses have made enough money from their primary jobs they invest their money in different businesses.
It is always considered a great idea to invest in any business because it also confirms our personal growth. In our industry, if someone wants to take a break from his/her acting career, then it means that they definitely have something to fall back on. There are many rich Pakistani celebrities who obviously have a lot of abilities so instead of working in showbiz, they start making opportunities for others. So we can say that this is another way of going further in the showbiz field in Pakistan.
