Neeli (Urdu: نیلی‎, born Neelofar, Multan, Punjab, June 24, 1966) is a Pakistani film actress. Neeli acted in both Urdu and Punjabi language films. Allegedly she was married to actor/director Javed Sheikh, and they later divorced[citation needed]. Her name 'Neeli' comes from the fact that she always wore blue contact lenses. Neeli left the movie industry in the 2000s, purportedly due to scandals in print media at the time. She later married and lived for a short time in Islamabad before moving to Lahore where she lived for some years.She is living in hyderabad with her family now.

Early life[edit]

Her father was a Sindhi feudal lord. She went to Saint Mary’s Convent, where she completed her intermediate in Arts. She liked sports and was never interested in her studie's.


The director/producer Yunus Malik, a family friend, offered Neeli a role in a Punjabi film called Akhri Jang. Although the film was not a great hit, it was the beginning of her career.

At first, producers did not want to sign her because they said she was too thin. Sangeeta decided that she was perfect for a role in the Urdu film Kasam Munne Kee, starring Babra Sharif and Faisal. After that film, Sajjad Gul signed her up in his film Choron Ki Barat with Nadeem, and for Haseena 420. After this movie, she decided to make acting her profession. She starred in Madame Bavary in 1988 and had a double role in Kalay Chor.

Later, she was paired with Javed Sheikh, and they had many successful films through the 1980s and 1990s. Some of their films together include Sher Ali (1992), Khuda Gawah (1993), Mushkil (1995), Jeeva (1995), and Chief Saab (1996).

Mushkil, dealing with the subject of child labour, was Sheikh's debut as director. The film received laudatory comments in the press, and the film was mildly successful. Amjad Bobby’s tune "Dil ho gaya hai tera deewana", featuring Sheikh and Neeli, remained on the top of the music charts for many weeks.

After the decline of the Pakistani film industry in the early 2000s, Neeli gradually left the business.

She has given the industry a huge line of hit films.
