Speaking in an interview, Imran stated that he was glad to be working with director Muzaffar Ali but he had no clue what might be next for him.
“I feel fortunate to have got the opportunity to work with Muzzaffar sahib. This movie has satisfied my creative appetite and my role has out done my previous work. I can proudly say that when I will look back into my life, I will be proud of the fact that I have done this movie. However, I am literally blank about what will I do after this.”
Imran Abbas also spoke on the issue of whether or not he was competing with fellow Pakistani Bollywood actor Fawad Khan. Pakistani actors Imran Abbas and Fawad Khan have many similarities. And as we often know, similarities in the world of showbiz breeds competition, which in turn leads to feuds. However, according to actor Imran Abbas there is no competition between him and Fawad. Actually, Imran was all praises for Fawad Khan and his acting style.
“Fawad has a different style of acting and he has a lot to show. He is brilliant and he is doing wonderful. I always pray for his success,” he said in an interview. “We have worked together on a show in Pakistan. If there would’ve been comparisons and I would’ve been competitive, I would’ve never worked on a show where two actors were there. I played the role of his elder brother. So, I never compare myself. I think a person destroys himself if he starts comparing with others.”
Imran Abbas was in New Delhi for the launch of Jaanisaar‘s music. Jaanisaar is the upcoming Bollywood flick directed by Indian director Muzaffar Ali, who also directed the famous Rekha starrer Umaro Jaan. Imran stars in Jaanisaar as a prince who falls in love with a courtesan, played by debutante Pernia Qureshi.
Jaanisaar will release this Friday in India and on August 27 in Pakistan.
