Indian Actor and politician Paresh Rawal said he would love to work in Pakistani films and shows. Paresh Rawal recently came under fire for his controversial tweets against writer Arundhati Roy, has taken a soft stance on Pak-India tensions.
“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. I feel our shows are boring,” Rawal told Indian Media.
The 67-year-old actor says cinema and cricket both bridge the gap between the two countries.
“I believe that artists 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,” he added.
The actor went on to say that he does not agree with the ban on Pakistani artistes.
“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 said.
It turns out that Rawal has been a long-time fan of Pakistan dramas. In a 2014 interview before the release of his film Raja Natwarlal, he ranked some Bollywood films as inferior to Pakistani shows.
“Forget Hollywood, we cannot even compare our films to Pakistani shows. They are far more superior to what we produce here. We need to make some more smart films where we don’t take our audience for granted and think that they will not understand what we want to convey.”
