Exchanging Art Across The Border
By Zain Ul Abideen
They say there is no border for ART. After numerous Pakistani singer a bunch of Pakistani actors have now also started working across the border. In the past we have seen Atif Aslam, Ali Azmat, Mustafa Zahid and many other musicians are lending their voices for Bollywood flicks but now the exchange of actors have also been witnessed in recent time.
Yes! We do have quality musicians, actors and most importantly scripts of our dramas but we have to admit that our entertainment industry has not grown that much to provide our artists’ good career perks comparatively across the border. It is also to be noted here that not just Pakistani artists but in the past Indian artists have also been visiting Pakistan and showed their interest to work across the border. These exchanges of art not just simply play a platform of cultural exchanges but also provide huge career opportunities for the upcoming talents. And a treat for it viewers to see their favorite artists collaborating with the unexpected ones.
Ali Zafar has prominently revealed his latent talent of acting in Bollywood Style previously after which many more have found it possible to do the same. Nowadays our very own Imran Abbas is also busy shooting a flick with Bipasha Basu which is expected to come this year soon too. And how can we forget our Meera-G and her Kiss controversy. Whereas talking about Indian artists coming to Pakistan you just have to wait for ZINDA BHAG a Pakistani movie to see veteran actor Naseer Ud Din Shah doing his stuff in his own style. Yeah I know I forgot Veena but I can’t find enough sarcastic words for her highness to be explained here.
All I have to say is all these developments are ultimately a good step for both of the countries apart from the peace and political efforts via this trend we should also let our artists grow and let them earn some fame and money that’s what our DESI and proud artists need the most in these times.
