Why has Imran Abbas called Talk Shows 'Toxic' f

"Delivering a super-hit drama is not a big deal."

Seated across from host Adnan Faisal, Imran Abbas delved into details about his upcoming Punjabi film, Jee Ve Sohneya Jee.

When the conversation shifted to Imran’s absence from local films, he responded with a nonchalant shrug, stating:

“Ask Pakistani film producers and directors. Maybe they don’t think I’m capable enough.”

Adnan pressed further, suggesting that Imran might not want to do local films.

Imran responded: “It’s not a matter of what I do or don’t want to do. I want to do a good film, wherever it may be from.”

Offering insight into his decision-making process, Imran elaborated:

“We make good films here and will continue to do so. But at that time, the films I chose had good subjects according to me.”

Imran Abbas emphasised the importance of learning from experiences. He expressed a willingness to participate in a Pakistani film if the subject excites him.

He affirmed it: “Absolutely, why not? It’s my country. I prefer Pakistan’s films over all else.”

Transitioning to the topic of dramas, Imran Abbas drew a clear distinction between television shows and films, emphasising the responsibility associated with the latter.

Imran remarked: “Delivering a super-hit drama is not a big deal. I’ve already done many myself.”

He reflected on his extensive television career and said that films leave a lasting impact on the audience’s memory.

“A film is that one thing that stays in your mind… they engrave their own stamp. So, it’s very important to do films intelligently. It’s a huge responsibility.”

Many diverse opinions arose after Imran Abbas’ statement.

One user commented: “Now, when Pakistani actors return to Pakistan after working in Indian movies, they are seen only seeking Bollywood’s approval, criticising Pakistani dramas.

“However, they initially gained respect through Pakistani dramas. They need to be humbled.”

Another said: “But he does not have any major hit dramas. He is a bad actor, that’s why no one wants him in films.” Said another.

One remarked: “The Pakistani media does not want him in films because we have much better-looking artists who are more gifted.

Another stated: “If he was a talented enough actor, he would naturally be starred in films. But he is not.”

Jee Ve Sohneya Jee features other guest appearances from Pakistani stars, including Anam Tanveer and Sajid Hasan.
