WEB DESK: Shaan has been very outspoken about Pak-India tension. He also called out to his showbiz fraternity on not supporting the army, and satnding beside the country at the time of need.
Shaan just took it to his Facebook account and urged the youth to come forward to make the Pakistani showbiz industry better.
“It’s a proud moment for Pakistani films and I’m honoured to be a part of them. For me the only option ever was to bring Pakistani films out of its boundaries and show the world what immense talent and scripts we have in Pakistan so I always kept my focus on building Pakistani film industry rather than building my own career,” Shaan wrote to his followers.
“the film industry needs all of us right now together working to build so the future generations don’t have to they would be sitting on thrones of stardom Young directors ,actors ,writers technicians don’t have to go look for work anywhere they would be Able to dream and achieve they don’t have to go through the building process”, the post also states.
Shaan urges his fellow fans to step in and help to build the industry for future generations. At the same time he also took a jab at Pakistan’s intellectual elite saying they weren’t concerned with engaging with culture unless it suited their own ends: “Let all the intellectual elite of Pakistan come to the rescue of art and culture but I guess their art is hanging on their walls as paintings of Sadequain and narrated poetry of Faiz Ahmed Faiz they need to collectively support and promote Pakistani films if you don’t agree with the films we make than make one. Come join us.”
“Let’s make our version of super hero films parallel films let make our version of zero dark thirty. Let us learn together let there be an option apart from facebook where we can share our knowledge and stories and share our universe of emotions and events for that
We need all the help we can get especially from our stars as you need stars to form a galaxy.” He concludes.
