The veteran actor and legend of Pakistani cinema industry Shaan Shahid always had a tiff with actors and stars who went across the border to showcase their talent. He has always been of the view that instead of going to India, our stars should work here only. But, now it seems that this point of view is a thing of past for Shaan. Because he has some good words for Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan, please note that both have worked in India.
During a recent interview with the local publication house, Shaan said that he is in favour of bringing global talent in Pakistan but the situation is inverse when it comes to this country’s own:
“I have been against talent working internationally but if anything isn’t available, I will have to look at options.”
With both Ali and Fawad coming back to their roots for working on different projects, the comment is somewhat different now:
“I am happy to see Fawad Khan and Ali Zafar making films in and for Pakistan. Pakistan only has a handful of heroes and it needs them at this point of time.”
Accepting what he has done in past, he stated that being judgmental is not an option anymore:
“It’s incorrect for me to judge anyone, and that’s something I’ve learned from life.
But that doesn’t mean that he is still satisfied with actors working across the border:
“To be honest, I am not even concerned anymore. It’s difficult to make people look at the bigger picture, so I don’t want to waste my time clarifying myself.”
Previously, Shaan had always bashed stars who worked for India but it seems that he is now over and done with it.
