Fakhr-e-Alam with his fun antics when it comes to acting and his versatile singing became a household name in Pakistan. With the actor cum singer’s venture in entrepreneurship and technology, he also became the first Pakistani ever to deliver a talk at Google headquarters in the USA.
And now, Alam is all set to embark upon his Mission Parwaaz.
Wondering what it is?
As Fakhr puts it, Mission Parwaaz is One Man, One Plane, One Epic Journey Around The World.
Fakhr Alam spent most of his childhood dreaming to be an air force pilot but he was able to realize his childhood dream in the year 2015 when he got his private pilot license in Florida, USA. In the same year, Alam announced that he would attempt to circumnavigate the globe in a single engine aircraft. However, his dream is now materializing as the actor cum singer shared the news on his Twitter.
Dear all I am happy to report to you all today that after 3 years of a lot of hard work & persistence #MissionParwaaz my attempt to circumnavigate the globe is finally happening. If I succeed I will become the 1st Pakistani in the history of the world to do so. pic.twitter.com/En2NWUX0FH

I will be landing at various airports across the globe in various countries through out this challenging journey, for re-fuelling, supplies, rest and plane maintainence,” states Fakhr-e-Alam.
Fakhr-e-Alam is all set to make a world record being the first Muslim and Pakistani to travel around the world with less than 100 hours of flying experience to his name.
