WEB DESK: Before there was Fawad Khan ruling the Bollywood, was Ali Zafar who started before him and set the line for more actors to come across the border. Fawad Khan may have been a bit more successful than Zafar but he did put a lot of roots for the industry.
In a recent interview in Times Of India, Ali Zafar was asked about the no kissing rule of Fawad Khan to which he replied, “I was the one who started the no-kissing clause. It was applicable in ‘Chashme Baddoor’ and my previous films since I wasn’t too comfortable with it back then. Having said that, I feel sometimes you need to take some liberty as an actor.’
He further added,”Let’s see if I stick to this clause in the future. I won’t say I don’t mind locking lips now. It’s just that I may not be as stringent about it anymore.”
The actor cum singer was then asked if he was avoiding such acts because of the audience back here in Pakistan. to which he replied,” I take into account feelings and emotions of my people back home and I would never like to do anything that hurts or offends them in any manner. I have always been cautious of what roles I take and how I go about them.”
Ali Zafar is busy these days with his upcoming cameo in a Bollywood movie and he looks forward to get back into singing again as that was his first passion.
“Someone told me that one should not forget one’s roots. I started off as a singer but realised over a period of time that I was ignoring music. You have to make time for your passion. For me, music is a way of expressing myself,” said Zafar.
