The famous singer-turned-actor, Ali Zafar, rejected three Bollywood films in order to concentrate on his first Pakistani film.

The Channo singer was recently interviewed by Express News and revealed that this year he plans to work and dedicate his time solely towards Lollywood.

Ali’s Bollywood debut film Tere Bin Laden led him to offers from six more movies in the Indian film industry. He established a firm ground in the Indian cinema five years ago and never looked back since. However, this time around the famed singer is planning on heading back to Pakistan to work in Lollywood on his first film.

In regards to his new project he said in a press briefing, “This year I will be working in Pakistan on my own film. I hired a few young writers to work on the script and now that the script is complete all my focus will be geared towards the film.”

He further went on to say that this year he is fully committed towards Pakistan which is why he declined film offers from Bollywood. Since this is his first film, he does not want any distractions and wants to devote his time wholly towards his Pakistani film.

    Nice to know that he is planning to make his own film. Most of us have completely forgotten the last time we saw Ali in a Pakistani project so good news for Pakistani fans. Fawad Khan has also expressed similar ideas. I guess we will see both of them directing soon instead of acting in future. Recommend

    @sara: so that his next project is again flop. Ali Zafar’s problem is that other than Katrina he has never worked with a hot actress. Mahira looks like his bajiRecommend
