The Aunn Zara actor is elated with the response given to his show
Osman Khalid Butt who played the much-loved character Aunn is overwhelmed by the response to the hugely successful show Aunn Zara on Zindagi. Ecstatic that the show was as loved by the Indian audiences as it was across the border, he feels amazed at the amount of love and appreciation being showered on him through messages, tweets and emails. Osman says, “I’m so humbled that this quirky, madcap show created waves across the border. It was a fantastic experience and I had a blast revisiting it with a completely new audience.”
A big fan of Bollywood classics, his favourite film is Mughal-E-Azam, which he believes is a masterpiece where everything from the dialogues to the music was like poetry captured on celluloid. Among his other favourites are Amitabh Bachchan’s Main Azad Hoon, Sadma, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron and the Salman Khan-Aamir Khan starrer Andaaz Apna Apna.
On being asked, whether given an opportunity he’d like to work in a Bollywood film, he said, “Which actor hasn’t dreamt of being a part of Bollywood and Hollywood? I’d love to work in a Bollywood film — with the right script of course.” His dream is to direct a Pakistani film and bring it to India.
