Debut and breakthrough:
Saeed began his career as a television producer in the late 80s. His first production did not produce success and expected results. After entering into showbiz, Saeed's powerful presence caught the eye of directors and he casted for acting roles in the TV shows. He made his acting debut in 1995 with Karooron Ka Aadmi, followed by Ye Jahaan, a musical that was telecast in 1996.
The same year he was declared best actor for his performance in Ab Tum Ja Saktay Ho, directed by Mehreen Jabbar, in which his cast was opposite to Sania Saeed and Khalida Riyasat. Saeed continued doing TV productions alongside.
He partnered with Sultana Siddiqui in late 90s and then Abdullah Kadwani in 2000s for his production companies.
He is appreciated as one of the most successful producers of the current time.
After 15-odd years in the business, he is indubitably at the top of his game". Saeed's notable TV work as an actor includes Mehndi, Doraha, Kabhi Kabhi Pyar Mein, Kaafir, Uraan, Hum Se Juda Na Hona, Ladies Park, Dillagi and guest roles in Meri Zaat Zarra-e-Benishan and Daam.

Saeed made his film debut in 1999 with Samina Peerzada's movie Inteha. He portrayed the negative role in Inteha and went on to receive the National Award – Best Actor – for his role in his very first film. Due to poor conditions of Pakistan Film Industry at that time, he did only limited number of movies until the revival of cinema began in 2013. He has done many movies since the resurgence of cinema in 2013. These include commercially successful films such as Main Hoon Shahid Afridi, Bin Roye, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani and Punjab Nahi Jaungi. His film Jawani Phir Nahi Ani holds the record of being the fourth highest-grossing Pakistani film of all time, while his another film Punjab Nahi Jaungi has been declared as the second highest-grossing Pakistani film of all time and the highest-grossing film of 2017 in Pakistani cinema. In 2018, he starred in film Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2. As of 2019, the film is the highest-grossing Pakistani film of all time. After its huge box office success, he announced three more films in an interview with Dawn Images, saying that third film in JPNA franchise is in plans to be out "in two years", while he added, "we're working on two other films, one's being written by Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar and the other by Vasay Chaudhry."
Saeed is one of the most decorated Pakistani actors. He has received numerous award nominations and honours including a minimum of 5 Lux Style Awards. He received special recognition awards at Pakistan Achievement Awards 2015 UK and Europe and at 4th Hum Awards in 2016 for his invaluable contribution towards revival of Pakistani cinema.
