The 46-year-old actor rues the fact that he didn’t have any scenes with Nawaz in the film. He says, “Is baat ka rona hai (It’s the only regret) that I didn’t get to share screen space with Nawaz. But I am glad that we have become good friends. We bonded well. Now I wait for the day to share screen space with him.”
Several Pakistani actors, including Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan and Marwa Hocane, have made their way into Bollywood in the recent past. Adnan feels this exchange of talent will lead to better things. “Actors, painters and art don’t have boundaries. All of us (Pakistani actors) working in Bollywood are ambassadors of Pakistan. We would love to see Indian actors working in Pakistan too. In fact, the trend has already started with Om Puri, Nandita Das and Naseeruddin Shah having worked in Pakistani films. Shuruwat aap ne ki, aur achhi ki (you guys started the trend, and it has been a good one). And we won’t back off,” he adds.
