Ali Zafar is looking forward to sign more factual movies in Bollywood as he wants to prove his talent by some interesting and meaningful stories. Moreover, Ali Zafar opened his heart by giving this statement that “My three idols have been Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Kishore Kumar. Here were three powerhouses, who not only excelled as singers, but also carved a niche for themselves as talented actors. If I can match even a patch of that, my work is done here”.
Few of the Ali Zafar fans are aware of the fact that the field in which he graduated was related to painting, but he came up as an actor and singer. This fact was known with these words of Ali Zafar which he quipped “I’m a creative person at the end of the day and I pursue avenues that allow me to satisfy those juices,” Further he said, “First it was painting, then came my music and finally, acting with “Tere Bin Laden”.
On the introductory event of his next movie London, Paris, New York, Ali Zafar mentioned that he is not only singing and acting in this film, but also working with great music directors to compose some good music. The star is working with newcomers in this film, which is quite a risk for his career, but the star believes that a movie does not require good stars. For this he said, “I did Tere Bin Laden a few years ago with virtual unknowns and the film became a cult hit”.
He exclaimed that there are a lot of good stories that require attention of good producers. He further said: “My rule is simple: if you can get me to read beyond the first few pages of the script and manage to hook me in then I am willing to discuss a film with you.”
Indeed, famous artists like Atif Aslam, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali khan, Adnan Sami, and Ustad Ghulam Ali believed that prejudices against Pakistani talent do exist in Indian Industry, and thus made great progress in this industry. For this, the singer cum actor said, “I don’t disagree that prejudices are still very much a part of the mindset, both in India and in Pakistan. I’m sure all four of them have seen this up close and personal, but such biases are held by just a few close-minded people.”
Ali Zafar said that I am working for Indian industry as a part of my work and so stated “it’s not your nationality that defines your talent.”
