WEB DESK: Team Actor In Law is in full promotional swing as the release comes near this Eid. While attending the press, male lead Fahad Mustafa was none too happy with the channels rivalry with each other that affects the movie’s popularity.
“It feels quite bizarre when other channels refrain from promoting our film or even showing our songs on their channel even when they have no issues in playing Hindi movie songs and trailers,” Fahad Mustafa said while addressing the media. “I have often seen Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s film songs being played on these channels but they don’t want to play any Pakistani movie’s trailers or songs which is not made under their banner.”
He added, “Actor in Law has a wide range of people associated with it. We have songs sung by Atif Aslam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Asrar who have millions of fans all over the world. Even I have a big fan following but these channels don’t put up our news or show a glance from the film which is sad.”
He said that the media should forget the discrimination and work for the betterment of the industry.
“Now all we can do is work hard and bring our best. It is very easy to make a film in this country but very tough to promote it because nobody cooperates,” Mustafa continued to highlight the pertinent issue. “I am saying this because till now I have worked in three films and have experienced how much pain we actors bear in order to promote our movies.”
Focusing on the uproar of the movie industry, he said, “There are a lot of cameras and media persons here, and we want you to help us promote our film. It is a very good effort and we want that every Pakistani kid should know about AIL’s release, as we have worked really hard and we believe that no matter how good or bad it is, since it’s a Pakistani movie, everyone should come and watch it.”
Lastly, Fahad Mustafa revealed that AIL ‘is a purely a Pakistani story’ and it addresses general people and our country’s issues with the help of satire. The movie is one of its kind and all the actors involved in the film have never played such kind of roles before and according to the actor, if media and people support it, it can bring a huge progress in Pakistani cinema.
