It has always been Pakistan Vs India – We didn’t realize when it became Pakistani VS Pakistan.
Lets take a look how?
Media – Collectively regarded as means of communication, entertainment, broadcasting, publishing and the Internet.
Media now works as a promoter to new fashion trends, good food, brands, places, ACTORS and what not!
Lets now focus on the “Actors” parts of it.
As it is seen our (Pakistan’s) media industry is doing pretty good in the field, it wouldn’t be wrong if I put it like, it’s doing better than India, no hate intended, just wanted to state the fact. In fact, Indians themselves love to binge watch Pakistani serials. We’ve all grown up watching Khan’s amazing movies of that time and not to forget, Ekta Kapoor’s long running soaps which you wouldn’t want me to mention and embarrass you, haha!
Coming back to the subject, as a 90’s kid I have grown up watching television as it was a medium of entertainment back then, as I grew up there is one thing that has also grown up with in me, why do Pakistani advertisements have Indian actors, be it the actors from their television industry or Bollywood. There’s absolutely no hate or personal grudges that I am holding against them it is just that can’t our Mahira Khan do juice’s advertisement as good as Deepika Padukone?
Mawra could’ve done magnum’s advertisement as good as Kareena Kapoor Khan, our Jeeto Pakistan star, Fahad Mustafa could’ve done Q-Mobile’s advertisement as good as Arjun Kapoor. Mehvish Hayat was a great choice for Olivia Kajal then why did they choose Aditi Rao Hyderi?
Our actors are very talented, then why aren’t they the first choice when it comes to advertisements? While we don’t see any Pakistani doing Indian advertisements, why is that so? Aren’t we capable enough? Hell, NO! We’re are capable enough, no one can deny that. If someone thinks that way then he/she hasn’t seen any Pakistani actor performing his best in a show.
So the point is, WE NEED TO VALUE WHAT IS OURS!
Once we start valuing ourselves, trust my words no one would be able to put a ban on Mahira Khan and Fawad Afzal Khan to enter bollywood and make their name shine over there. Thought they don’t need it, alone Pakistan is enough to make them A STAR – which they already are.
This article is not out of hate, but someone had to put it out. Let’s make Pakistan our first choice, they day we start valuing ourselves the same day this world will value us.
