There was a time when pretty faces from Pakistan’s film and drama industry were continuously getting featured in Indian movies.
The phase saw the likes of Fawad Khan, Ali Zafar, Saba Qamar Imran Abbas, Mahira Khan and many other artists making it to Bollywood.
Work in Bollywood not only offered a handsome amount of money to our artists but also assured better opportunities in the local industry. These are all A-List stars after all.
Even though our celebs won rave reviews for their performances in Bollywood productions, the idea of working in India has always remained controversial among some celebrities.
While some take pride in turning down roles in Indian movies, others simply regret the ‘missed chances.’
The Curious Case of Danish Taimoor
Recently, Pakistani actress Ayeza Khan revealed that her talented husband had almost made it to a Bollywood movie.
Ayeza was speaking at a talk show recently, where the actress spilled the beans that Danish had been cast alongside Bollywood’s Bebo aka Kareena Kapoor.
However, Kareena got pregnant, and the shootings were delayed.
“We were all ready to go for the shoot, but then we got to know that Kareena was pregnant.”
“After Kareena delivered her baby in 2016, the situation between India and Pakistan got worse,” Ayeza told on a TV show.
She, however, didn’t name the movie Danish signed up for.
It should be mentioned here that recent tensions between Pakistan and India following the February standoff has resulted in a breakdown of cultural ties, with both the countries banning showbiz stars and their movies on either side of the border.
