Noor Jehan
The Shahnoor Studios (also spelt as Shahnur Studios) is the studio founded by Syed Shaukat Hussain Rizvi and his first wife, Noor Jehan. The studio is one of the oldest studios in Lahore.

During the 1940s in Bombay, Rizvi initially owned a company called Shaukat Art Productions. In 1948, after the holocaust of the partition, Noor Jehan and Rizvi shifted to Lahore, Pakistan. On the vandalised remains of what had been the Shorey Studios, they rebuilt a new studio called Shahnoor Studios. It was built from scratch and was finally completed and opened in 1950. The first film to be made there was the Punjabi venture, Chanwey (1951). Noor Jehan and Rizvi directed the film together, since Rizvi did not speak Punjabi. The film became a huge success and brought Noor Jehan fame and fortune in Pakistan
