Career[edit]

Yousuf Khan made his debut in the Pakistani film Parwaaz in 1954.[1] He started his film career as a supporting actor, but later matured into a lead actor.[2] He started his film career when the Pakistani film industry was ruled by big name actors like Sudhir, Santosh Kumar, Darpan and Aslam Pervaiz. He made a name for himself first as a romantic hero in Urdu language films. Later on, in the late 1970s and 1980s, he became known as an action hero in Punjabi and Pashto language films.[1]
