I would love to work in Pakistani films and shows, I feel Indian shows are boring - Paresh Rawal
Veteran Bollywood actor and Lok Sabha lawmaker Paresh Rawal, who only recently came under fire for his controversial tweets against Arundhati Roy, has decided to taken a soft stance on Pak-India tensions.

In conversation, while commenting on professional opportunities on this side of the border, he said, "Yes, I would love to work in Pakistani films and shows. I love all Pakistani TV serials like 'Humsafar', the way they act, the story, the writing, the’s all good. I feel our shows are boring."

Rawal has been a long-time fan of Pakistani dramas, evident through a 2014 interview before the release of his film Raja Natwarlal where he ranked some Bollywood films as inferior to Pakistani shows.

"Forget Hollywood, we cannot even compare our films to Pakistani shows. They are far more superior to what we produce here. We need to make some more smart films where we don't take our audience for granted and think that they will not understand what we want to convey," he professed.

In regards to the present ban on Pak-India cultural exchange, Rawal commented, "I believe that artistes and cricketers don’t come and throw bombs. They are not terrorists, rather they bridge the gap between the two countries. But when the mood is not good why rake up issues at that time? It is better to stay with your country."

"There should be no ban on anyone or anything. Even in 'Hindi Medium' there was a Pakistani actress but nothing happened as the mood is good in the country," he says.
