KARACHI: Pakistani actor Shaan says that Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Happy New Year is a copy of the Hollywood George Clooney starrer Ocean’s 12, reports Gulf News.
“Happy New Year is what — Ocean’s 12? Let’s be honest. They have to realise that they don’t have any scripts anymore, whatever scripts they have, it starts to become an art film,” said Shaan in an interview with Tabloid! on Monday.
The Operation O21 star is in Abu Dhabi for the International Showbiz Expo.
It has been reported that he will speak about the growth of Pakistani cinema at the expo along with potential production opportunities.
Shaan is also expected to walk the red carpet on the opening night of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival on Thursday.
“Us actors don’t have to win votes, so we don’t have to belittle each other. Actors can still be friends. We can still make good films and go beyond boundaries. That will only happen if major stakeholders like Shah Rukh or Aamir shoot a film in Pakistan,” he said.
