Admittedly, we have not been able to create a good film industry, Fahad Mustafa

Actor, producer and host Fahad Mustafa has said that whether one believes it or not, it is a fact that good film industry has not been formed in Pakistan, however our drama industry is very popular.

The host and producer recently participated in Noman Ijaz’s program ‘G Sarkar’, where he talked about his personal life including showbiz and also admitted some of his mistakes.

Fahad Mustafa admitted that he could not only make dramas but also sell them while his father actor Salahuddin Tanio could only make very good dramas, he did not know the art of making money from them.

He said that he had no interest in acting, he came to showbiz by accident.

In response to a question, he said that he started production 8 years ago and so far he has produced more than 90 dramas, serials and films, from which he also earned money.

In response to a question, Fahad Mustafa said that they have been married for 15 to 17 years and the best day of his life was the day when his daughter was born and he had a son after his daughter.

The actor and host revealed that he had dropped out of pharmacy to get married and told his father that he did not want to study any more.

He said that he had a love marriage with his wife, which angered her parents, including his parents, but later their families agreed.

Fahad Mustafa said that he could not continue his education but his wife is educated and then he got into acting and both of them saw many failures and successes together.

In response to another question, Fahad Mustafa said that Mahira Khan has been his ‘crush’ and he wanted to work with her but the actress did not want to work with him.

He clarified that in some projects the two were offered to work together but in some he and Mahira Khan refused to work.

According to the host, the two will soon be seen in a film ‘Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad’ and they enjoyed working with Mahira Khan.

Talking about the film and drama industry in the program, Fahad Mustafa said that there are many people in Pakistan who are interested in dramas and watch dramas and there is no rival for Pakistani dramas.

Drama industry is very good.

He said that Pakistani film industry was emerging a few years ago till 2019 but now it has lagged behind again and whether one likes it or not, our films have been replaced by Indian and other films.

Fahad Mustafa said that we have to admit that we could not make film industry as compared to drama industry.

We have legendary TV actors but none of them are legendary actors of movies.

However, we force some people to call them movie legends.

He said that whether one believes it or not, it is a fact that today no one remembers the names of five Pakistani films and no singer knows the songs of Pakistani films.

According to Fahad Mustafa, we should make 70 films a year at present, out of which at least 15 films are such that we can be proud that we made good films and then people review each of their films and make this commitment that they will make a better film next year.
