Pakistan’s Tv and film actor Fahad Mustafa raised concerns over screening drama serials in cinemas and said that it will harm the entire industry.
“It’s unfortunate that Dramas are once again occupying a space on big-screen. Nobody wants that, not even Humayun Saeed who had his drama [Mere Pas Tum Ho] screened on the big screens. You know we have backstepped which is not a positive sign for the entire industry,” Mustafa opined while talking to Galaxy Lollywood.
He said that more and more films should be made instead of bringing television content in cinemas. “We should focus on making good films. To be honest, we have worked immensely hard in the last four to five years to reach a certain level where our films can record strong earnings. So, we need to continue this thing rather than going a step back,” he added.
On the other hand, ‘Jeeto Pakistan’ host expressed disinterest in returning on television and wants to do more films. “I did a lot of work on television but now I think I should stick to films, one of the reasons behind this is dramas take a lot of time to get shot. In films, normally you do three to four shots in a day but drama contains around 365 shots so it becomes hectic for actors,” he said.
Mustafa also talked about his upcoming film ‘Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad’ and working experience for the first time with superstar Mahir khan.
“I love working with Nabeel Qureshi [Director] and this is my yet another project with him. And as far as Mahira is concerned, so she is a talented actor and a very positive human being. We were not friends before this project but now we know each other very well and are good friends for sure,” he concluded.
