Pakistani actors like Neelam Muneer, Shaan Shahid, Fahad Mustafa, Sanam Jung and Faysal Qureshi have said they will not act in Indian films. According to them, they wanted to show solidarity with their country not associating with the Indian film industry.
For Pakistani actors the huge remuneration and fame promised by the Indian film industry was a great attraction. Many Pakistanis have earned much acclaim for their roles in Indian films.
Post-Pulwama Indian filmmakers are not very keen on engaging Pakistani actors. There is huge resentment against Pakistanis. In an interview to a Pakistani media outlet Neelam Muneer of Chuppan Chupai fame, said, “I have no interest in working in India, I get an immense amount of love from Pakistan. “I am not going anywhere. An actor should work where they get respect and love.”
