Star performers of PISA at the press conference
Mehwish Hayat, Faysal Quraishi, Amar Khan, Vasay Chaudhry, Ahmed Ali Butt, Sheheryar Munawar, Yasir Hussein, and Faryal Mehmood spoke at a Press conference at the Sheraton Hotel in Mall of the Emirates.
Talking to the Khaleej Times, Mehwish Hayat who also performed with Shehryar Munawar answered the interviewer’s question by referring Korean TV Show Squid Game and said the world is changing.
“Even though it came from a very small country, it gained popularity across the world. Indian actors have played Pakistani roles, but soon, we hope that there would be Pakistanis who would be playing Pakistani characters.”
The host of the PISA 2021, Vasay Chaudhry also shared his opinion on how difficult it is to keep the audience happy.
“I will never crack jokes that you cannot tolerate in front of your mother or sister,” said Chaudhry, the writer, and actor of Jawani Phir Nahi Ani.
“I have not changed my benchmarks for what is appropriate in the last five years – which is when everyone has suddenly gotten too sensitive – I have had that compass since I left my house to work in this industry.”
