Nasir Khan made his acting debut in the 1945 film Mazdoor. After a few films, he shifted to Lahore after Partition and starred in the first ever Pakistani film Teri Yaad in 1948. He acted in another Pakistani film, Shahida in 1949. Both films failed to do well and Nasir returned to India in 1951. He resumed his acting career in Bombay, acting in several films throughout the 1950s. His movie Nagina (1951) with Nutan was a big hit. Nasir Khan also enacted the role of Jumna alongside his real life brother Dilip Kumar, who played the role of Gunga in the 1961 dacoit drama Bollywood film Gunga Jumna. This was his last film for a decade. He returned to films in the early 1970s playing cameos in Yaadon Ki Baraat (1973) and his final film Bairaag (1976) which released after his death.
