Pakistani showbiz star Bilal Abbas Khan has expressed his desire to work with Indian filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj in future.
Bilal Abbas said that Vishal Bhardwaj has an amazing understanding of cinema and hopes to work with him in the future.
Recently, the Qurbaan actor said, “I love watching movies and web series, be it Hollywood or Bollywood. I have seen a lot of Indian movies including the South Indian ones. They are the reason that I am an actor today,” Bilal shared.
He further added, “I wish to be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. I have seen all his films like Omkara, Kaminey, Haider and Maqbool. His understanding of cinema is amazing and I aspire to be part of films that comprise performance-driven characters and a powerful storyline. He is my all-time favourite.”
Earlier in an interview, Bilal details about his selection of scripts and roles to test himself in a new way.
“Whenever I have to sign a project, I make sure that the character I’m about to do is different from my previous one. After I did Cheekh, I was on the lookout for a light-hearted character, opposite of what I did before. This is how I ended up doing Pyaar Ke Sadqay,” Khan said.
“I do make a conscious effort to ensure that every character I do is different and challenges me in a new way.”
Elaborating more, he added, “As an actor, you always have this hunger and desire to branch out. I also want to push boundaries and step out of my comfort zone. The majority of the dramas we do in Pakistan are women-centric. For a change, I did a series, apart from Ek Jhooti Love Story, called Abdullah Pur Ka Devdas, which is a male-centric story. It was interesting and I really enjoyed doing it.”
Currently, Bilal Abbas stars in Mehreen Jabbar’s Ek Jhoothi Love Story, alongside Madiha Imam. The show is scripted by Umera Ahmed, who is famous for Zindagi Gulzar Hai.
