Shaan Shahid turned down ‘Ghajini’ because he is first and foremost his father’s son, and then an artist

Shaan Shahid, a well-known actor and patriot, recently spoke out about his refusal to work in Bollywood, despite Aamir Khan’s Ghajini, as well as his unwavering support for Pakistani cinema despite its many flaws. The Zarrar star also discussed the difficulties we have in the entertainment industry and what can be done to fix them in an interview with Nauman Ijaz. Shaan Shahid turned down ‘Ghajini.

The hosts questioned the Yalghaar actor how many offers he has rejected, referring to nationalists who claim to be patriotic till a Bollywood offer arises. “I keep receiving offers and I keep refusing them. And after saying no to some from Bollywood, things I’ve had to face in Pakistan were unreal,” Shaan replay.

“I was offered a character that anyone in India could’ve done, it something Bollywood needed me for,” the actor explained, recalling the moment he turn down Ghajini and suffered backlash for it.

“I only asked them one thing,” the Waar actor continued, “‘Why do you guys want a Pakistani for this?” ‘No one will be able to tell you’re Pakistani,’ they said. ‘Of course, they will,’ I assured them. And it was the role of a villain, a particularly horrific one at that, someone who sells children’s body parts and such. So, after attempting to convey my situation to Aamir for three to four days, I resorted to a Punjabi analogy: ‘If you’re India’s pehelwan (heavyweight), I am Pakistan’s pehelwan (heavyweight), men paisay leke kushti nahi harunga (I won’t lose a fight for money)’.”

Shaan went on to say that he didn’t want to disappoint his loved ones and that he wanted to be remember as a hero here. To this, Nauman recalled an acting principle, stating that it is the “practise of eliminating one’s ego,” as long as the parts an actor performs are merely roles at the end of the day. “Do you believe your assertion [contradicts this principle]?” Nauman wondered.

“No, I just rejected because that character could have play by anyone.” “It the type of character for which a Pakistani should be summoned to India,” Shaan insisted. “So, ‘Why me?’ was your main concern?” “Yes,” Nauman said, and Shaan agreed. “They have outstanding actors, with academies producing 300 to 400 actors per day.” I also informed Aamir that if you guys really want a Pakistani actor, we have a lot of them, including Nayyer Ejaz, who fits the bill perfectly.”

“I’m not searching for a role there, I don’t have a type,” Shaan assured when asked what kind of role he would have accepted in Bollywood back then. Despite being an artist, I’m first and foremost my father’s son, who has created these films his entire life, including one on Kashmir. You can’t claim to be your father’s son just because you have a photo of him on your wall.”

“But if a man focuses on looking manly all the time, when is he going to focus on his craft?” Shaan responded insensitively when one of the guests ridiculed today’s heroes for appearing effeminate.

Changing the subject entirely, Nauman discussed how, in addition to the government’s lack of engagement, the artist community is also to blame for not upgrading cinema as it should have renovated. “I feel their children couldn’t take care of the responsibilities entrusted upon them as they should have,” Nauman bemoaned, to which Shaan partially agreed.

Shaan conclusion

“I’d want to point out that the necessity for studio space has decreased as a result of the digital revolution. I believe that Punjabi channel owners are still striving to satisfy today’s demands. There are no entertainment subchannels on many Punjab-based networks. I believe that there should be a government policy that can guide people the attention of the corporate community to this issue.”

“The question is apt, but the answer is too long,” Shaan groaned when asked where he sees our film industry in the next years. Shaan and Nauman then talked about how our cinema isn’t evolving because the same folks who write commercials and dramas are also making films. “And the same directors who direct dramas begin to direct flicks as well.” “How is that going to work?” Shaan enquired.

“There is no difference. Everything is done by everyone. A film is comparable to a T20 match, while a drama is comparable to a test match. Yes, it’s the same game, but most players aren’t skilled enough to play both. A person whose brain clock is programmed to satisfy the short screentime standards will have no notion how long a single take for a film should take. The screenplay for a film will be short and the script for a drama will be extensive, but drama writers do not comprehend this. So. “Even if everything appears to be in order on the surface, the end product is never up to par,” Shaan concluded.
