Pakistan is the hub of talent and has given birth to a lot of famous actors and actresses. Yet when opportunity comes, these actors or actresses do not think once before crossing borders and leaving Pakistan behind.
Unlike these, here we have a list of the Top 5 Pakistani Celebrities who rejected Bollywood offers and preferred to work in Pakistan instead.
Fatima Effendi was offered a Bollywood movie by Director Anees Bazmi. But she refused to work.
She told the media, ” Anees Bazmee called me and praised my drama serial and asked me to work in his film. I asked him about the story and the character I’d portray but refused to sign the movie because it required me to play a bold character”.
She says, “If I can achieve the same level of fame and respect in my country why would I want to go to Bollywood?”
The cute morning show host and the face of Pakistani dramas Sanam Jung also has no interest in Bollywood.
She said in an interview to a magazine, “When I said I would not do bold scenes, they replied they could ‘cheat’, but even if they cheat a scene, the audience will think I have done it. So Bollywood is out of the question”.
Saba Qamar has rejected not one not two but FOUR Bollywood movies.
In an interview with HSY she said, “I think our focus should first be on our own film industry. If they give a role alongside Ranbir Kapoor or Shahrukh Khan, it makes sense, but not if it is with Randip Hoodha or Emraan Hashmi.”
Shaan’s famous Bollywood refusal remains Amir Khan’s movie Ghajini in which he was asked to play a villainous avatar.
The actor revealed in an interview ,“I refused India once. When I read the role, I knew that they needed a new terrorist face and I said no. In Pakistan, I live in people’s hearts. That’s a huge responsibility. I cannot let them down.”
