Actor Fawad Khan feels that piracy poses a huge threat to the film industries around the globe and not just in India or Pakistan. He also emphasises that although over the years, the perception of audience has changed but the problem still persists and is far from getting over.
“Piracy is like a cancer in the society which will take a while to be cured. It is a global problem and we must do something to put an end to this menace,” says Fawad , who has been a part of the films such as Khoobsurat (2014) and Kapoor & Sons (2016).
Fawad’s popularity burgeoned in India after his Pakistani show Zindagi Gulzar Hai became a hit in the country.
About the changing dynamics of the film industry in Pakistan, the 34-year-old actor says, “With each passing day, the number of movie goers in Pakistan are increasing and same goes for the number of screens. Most of the films are releasing now in Pakistan.”
Actor Salman Khan’s recent release Sultan is the best example of this change in Pakistan.
“Salman’s Sultan gave a record opening in Pakistan, if you look at the records of the past three years. That shows that people actually prefer going to cinema rather than downloading it at home,” says Fawad, who will soon be seen in Karan Johar’s next directorial.
