He is considered as one of the best filmmaker of Pakistan and is famous for making issue-based films wrapped in entertainment. He has to his credit some of Lollywood's biggest hits like Choorian, Jeeva and Deewane Tere Pyar Ke.

Noor is often credited for re-vitalizing the Lollywood industry during the mid-90s, a period during which he directed hits such as Jeeva, Chor Machaye Shor and Ghoongat. In recent years Noor has often faced criticism for his casting choices and his reliance on outdated technology. Noor countered his critics with his last flick Larki Panjaban where he used some of the best gadgets to make the film. He has the credit of bringing the first Avid machine to Pakistan, a software used for film editing. His latest Punjabi release Majajan is doing very well at the box office.

Noor, the 60 year old filmmaker suffered a paralysis stroke early on Dec 31, 2011 and was brought to Sheikh Zayad Hospital. According to doctors, he suffered with mild stroke and he is out of danger. However, the doctors suggested him to remain in hospital for some days.

My name is Akhtar Sherazi and I am living outside Pakistan. I am the student of the Quran and made research on Quran almost for 45 years, after that I have published three books about the constitution of the Quran. Last year I published my third book titled "Jesus Warrior Apostle" which portrays the life of Jesus based on the Quran. I am interested in producing a English movie (with Arabic and Urdu translations) based on this subject, which details the life and struggle of Jesus and Maryum for the establishment of a society based on the Quran. I am seeking assistance in commencing this project, such as script writers and development of the plot for this movie. This movie will be produced in Pakistan. I would like to further discuss this project with you, if you are interested please send me your contact information. Akthar Sherazi M: 966-503356825
