Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal, famous for classic comedy movies like Andaz Apna Apna, Hera Pheri and Hungama, has taken a soft stance on Pak-India tensions and also expressed his desire to work in Pakistani dramas.
Speaking to an Indian publication, he said:
“Yes, I would love to work in Pakistani films and shows. I love all Pakistani TV serials like Humsafar, the way they act, the story, the writing, the language…it’s all good.”
On the contrary, the 68-year-old didn’t seem very impressed with Indian soaps.
“I feel our shows are boring.”
In regards to the present ban on Pak-India cultural exchange, Rawal added,
“I believe that artistes and cricketers don’t come and throw bombs. They are not terrorists, rather they bridge the gap between the two countries. But when the mood is not good why rake up issues at that time? It is better to stay with your country.”
“There should be no ban on anyone or anything. Even in ‘Hindi Medium’ there was a Pakistani actress but nothing happened as the mood is good in the country,” he says.
