Since his debut in 2010, Ali, who began his career as a singer in Pakistan, has become part of several big Bollywood projects, including the Katrina Kaif-Imran Khan starrer “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan” and also “Luv Ka The End”, where he had a special appearance. Currently, he’s shooting for Shrishti Behl’s ” London, Paris, New York” and will be starring soon in David Dhawan’s remake of the hit Bollywood film “Chashme Buddoor”.
With so much keeping him busy here, it’s no wonder that Zafar has often said that he’s having to juggle between both Pakistan and India. But, it seems that Bollywood is a priority for him now.
In a recent interview, Zafar said that he has no plans of working in the Pakistani film industry at the moment and added, “Whatever films you do in India eventually reach theatres in Pakistan…” He has also gone on record several times to say that his entry in Bollywood was planned, and that he ventured into Bollywood at a time when he wasn’t “getting the right kind of exposure in the music scene”.
When we spoke to him about coming to India to act in films here, he said, “The industry here offers you room to explore all your faculties as an artiste… Indian films have music as an integral part; hence, they allow me to keep in touch with my musical side also.”
Well, this actor-singer sure seems to have hit the right notes with the Indian audience, it seems.
