Fareed Butt is the rising video jockey at ARY Musik with a great fan following.
His shows on the channel have been complete hit and he is yet to appear in more projects (Hint: Reality show).
His favorite part about being a full-time VJ? Entertaining people – and we know for a fact that Fareed Butt is very good at what he does.
While VJ Fareed is dedicated to his work, he also feels that the music industry in Pakistan is dying. ARY Musik is now the only music channel in Pakistan and even though shows like Coke Studio and Battle of the Bands are doing well, there is still room for improvement. He also says that if there was one thing he could change about the entertainment industry it is that he would eradicate nepotism and focus on bringing fresh talent on screen.
Talking about films, he also says that the film industry in Pakistan is as good as Hollywood or Bollywood, thanks to actors like Shan, Fawad Khan and others. Fareed, himself, would love to act however he would be very particular about the character he chooses to play. Could this mean there is another surprise along the way?
Watch out for this space to find out and we wish the best to VJ Fareed for all his upcoming ventures.
