Shaan, Ali Zafar bury the hatchet?

Published: January 23, 2017



Lollywood heavyweight Shaan’s uncompromising views on Pakistani actors working in Bollywood are common knowledge.

Around three years ago, the two ended up getting mired in a very public spat over the very issue. When Ali was felicitated at an event back then, he presented a fitting reply to Shaan who had used the occasion to assail Pakistanis working in Bollywood as “cheap sell-outs”.

Ali Zafar reveals the name of his first Pakistani film

Hum doosri cheezon ka sahaara letay hain apni khaamion ko chupane ke liye, patriotism ke naam pae, doosri cheezon ke naam pae…I think we should be honest. Humain sach bolna chahiye aur woh waqt agaya hai ke anay walay logon se sach bola jaaye,” Ali had remarked over his acceptance speech.

Are Shaan and Ali Azmat collaborating on a new project?

Looks like the two have now made peace. Sources told The Express Tribune that Shaan has apologised to Ali and explained that his comments had been misinterpreted.  Shaan also posted a picture and some videos of the two jamming on his official Facebook account.

Here is another video of Shaan and Ali Zafar jamming together:

Much to our delight, Coke Studio star Momina Mustehsan and Shiraz Uppal were also present on the occasion.

    Shaan is either innocent or stupid if he thinks these actors will listen to him and rest only in Pak. Its just a matter of time when they will start crossing the border again. Let the war cry settle down . and whats wrong with it anyways ? Whats wrong in intercourse of art and culture . Recommend
