In an outright display of crossborder friendship and a bid to share each other’s culture, our very own ‘Rockstar’ Ali Zafar invited Bollywood heartthrob Siddharth Malhotra to Lahore for a tour of the old city.
The versatile Pakistani superstar took to social media website Twitter and in an informal chit chat first greeted the Ek Villain star who responded by saying he was busy shooting and travelling for work. “What’s up yo @S1dharthM,” tweeted Ali. “Hey Bro! Shooting, travelling, trying to make a good living @AliZafarsays,” responded Siddharth.
To this, Ali sent a video message to Siddharth suggesting shootings can continue but that he needed to take a break, and invited him to Old Lahore for “some great food” and “spicy time”.
Ali’s kind gesture went down well with the Bollywood actor who appreciated the invitation and posted his response through a video message where he was running on a treadmill in a gym, and said he was tempted and building an appetite and “mein isi tarha bhagta hua aa raha hoon”.
This heartening and friendly crossborder twitter conversation culminated in Ali tweeting to Siddharth: “Isi tarha bhaagta hua aajaaaaa 😉 Waiting!”
Siddharth has just finished shooting for his next film, Kapoor and Sons, where he will sharing screen space with Pakistani superstar Fawad Khan and Alia Bhatt.
