Ban Bollywood, says Pakistani film industry!
Bollywood films were described as promoters of vulgarity and screening them was termed unlawful
India’s dominant film industry, Bollywood, is popular in Pakistan. If films are not released there, they are pirated widely. Hindi cinema actors, right from Dilip Kumar to Amitabh Bachchan to Shahrukh, Aamir and Salman Khan, and Madhubala to Katrina Kaif, have fans across the border. This has affected the business, if any, of the Pakistani film industry.

He gained recognition as Hakim, an ogre in the dusty households of Pakistan in Bol. But a candid chat with the veteran actor reveals that he is far removed from the character he essayed.

Sushant Singh: Rajinikanth is beyond everybody
A specialist in character roles, Sushant Singh talks about how Durga Narayan Chaudhary (Jungle) and Pakiya (Satya) are as important and impactful as any larger-than-life mainstream hero
Having spent almost a decade in the film industry, Sushant Singh – the actor who came into the limelight after playing a vile villain in Ram Gopal Varma’s Jungle – is pretty clear about his position. Emphasising the fact that character roles are as important as main leads, the actor believes that a movie is incomplete and lusterless without strong and well-etched-out characters. Singh may not be in the topmost league or part of the starry clique, but after talking to him you realise that he’s more than content this way, ‘coz it’s not the Kapoors and Kumars who inspire him. He instead draws motivation from people like Om Puri and Naseerudin Shah – the kings of parallel cinema. We get into a freewheeling chat with Singh, who will soon make an appearance in Samir Karnik’s Chaar Din Ki Chandni, and get to know more about the actor… Click here to read more
