In the early part of the 2000s, the sound waves in Pakistan were filled with a catchy tune by the name of Aadat. Although the song itself was loved by everyone, the video also managed to create an impression and made Faisal Shah, then a model, a familiar face for the audiences all over the country.
Right after that, Fuzon's music video 'Akhiyan' was released which also featured Faisal. From there on, Faisal's career as a television artist was launched. He not only picked up several acting assignments but was also seen as a host in several TV shows. By the time Faisal's television career was launched, Pakistan was already booming with a number of private entertainment channels, which is why most of his work was televised on these channels.
His most famous drama serial to date has been 'Dil, Diya, Dehleez' (Hum TV). Later on, he featured in many other dramas like 'Dil Hai Chota Sa' (Geo TV), 'Daam' (ARY Digital), 'Salina' (ATV), 'Zeenat Binte Sakina Hazir Ho' (Geo TV), 'Koi Aur Anjum' (Hum TV), 'Muhabbat Tum Se Hai' (Hum TV), 'Haal-e-Dil' (ARY Digital), 'Dil-e-Nadan' (Geo TV), 'Aey Ishq Hamain Barbaad Na Kar' (ARY Digital) and 'Tum Ho Keh Chup' (Geo TV).
