Pakistani actor wants to buy home in MumbaiDecember 6th, 2008 - 9:46 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Dec 6 (IANS) Mikaal Zulfikar, the young actor from Lahore who plays a terrorist in Jagmohan Mundhra’s “Shoot On Sight” is undettered by the Shiv Sena declaring it will not allow any Pakistani artiste to work in India in the aftermath of the Mumbai terror strikes.Mikaal is ready to shift his base to India and is buying a property along with two other leading Pakistani entertainers, singer Atif Aslam and Ali Zafar.
“When I come to Mumbai I’ll be searching for a place to stay. Atif Aslam, Ali Zafar and I are planning to get one big place to stay in. All three of us are from Lahore and have known each other for years. So it makes sense to stay together. I love Mumbai. That’s where the action is.”
Mikaal admits the situation for Pakistanis in Mumbai was grim at the moment.
“I’ve heard Pakistan entertainers are being asked to leave Mumbai after what happened. That’s really unfair.
“Bollywood is a global entertainment headquarter. We shouldn’t be stopped from coming to Mumbai. India is a global market and terrorist attacks shouldn’t deter that target. I’ve spoken to some Pakistani entertainers in Mumbai. And they aren’t sure what would happen now.”
Mikaal says he will be shifting to Mumbai in February. He has signed Jagmohan Mundhra’s “Room Mates”.
About the film he says, “‘Room Mates’ is a romantic thriller set and shot in Mumbai. I’ll come to Mumbai alone. So I hope I’m made to feel welcome.”
