Lahore : Well known Pakistani writer and playwright Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar has revealed that he was offered to write a film from India several times but he flatly refused.
Speaking on a private TV show recently, Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar said, “I have received many offers from India. When I first visited India in 2006, I saw that there were sub-channels on TV but none from Pakistan. There was no channel. “That’s why people in India don’t know us Pakistanis,” he said.
Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar said that Mahesh Bhatt, along with several others, offered him to write the film but he flatly refused to do so for some reason.
He said he would not work for India until the Pakistani people there had their own identity.
He said that apart from Mahesh Bhatt, an Indian film director also offered him to write a film but he also refused.
When asked the name of this director, he said that he recognizes this director as the best director of the subcontinent so he will not take his name.
