Tapu Javeri, the photographer, is considered one of the pioneers of the Pakistani fashion industry. Tapu Javeri has been the man and brain behind my famous fashion and advertisement campaigns. He has worked not only with the famous fashion models but also with Pakistani film stars like Babra Sharif, Reema, Meera, Resham, Shaan, and many others. He often posts throwback pictures from those days while taking his followers to a trip down the memory lane.

He recently posted a picture of Pakistani film star Shaan Shahid from 1990 when his film Bulandi opposite Reema had just released. The debutants from Javed Fazil’s film were an instant rage among the people. While Reema was adored for her looks of a Japanese doll, Shaan Shahid was already a star kid whose parents Riaz Shahid and Neelo were prominent film personalities.

Tapu Javeri also narrated the story behind this iconic shot. He said,

‘Handsome @official.shaanshahid #shaanshahid for #xtramagazine 1990. Shaan has just released Bulandi his first film and was the hot new kid on the block, wanting to try something different I shot him on the #lahore canal. The frame looks devoid of people save him, but behind me there was a mass of hundreds of eager fans! #tapujaveri #tapujaveriportraits #tapulicious #blackandwhite #film #pakistanicinema’

In this black and white picture, the very young Shaan Shahid can be seen flaunting his muscular body as he sits on the bank of Lahore Canal. Tapu Javeri’s timeline is certainly recording the history of the Pakistani film and fashion industry. Tapu Javeri comes from a family of jewelers who were into the business even before the partition. After completing High School form Karachi Grammar School, Tapu Javeri pursued a degree in Anthropology from Bard College New York. He did his Masters in Archaeology from Athens before returning to Pakistan for good. Tapu Javeri is a man of many talents who is an artist, radio jockey, jewelry designer, teacher, and photographer.
