The trailer for Shahid’s movie ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ was released. The movie is based on the issue of power theft and load-shedding. ‘Actor-in-Law’ starred Pakistani actor Fahad Mustafa as a lawyer and highlighted the nation’s electricity issue in one of its courtroom sessions.
Bollywood’s ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ is based on the same problem. Mehwish, who was also part of ‘Actor-in-Law’, drew a comparison of her film with Shahid’s film. She said it was great to see the neighbours taking inspiration from their movies.
Coincidentally, ‘Actor-in-law’ is all set to hit theatres in India, two years after it was released in Pakistan. The 2016 movie was also screened at a festival in Rajasthan earlier this year.
Not only Mehwish but film’s producer Fizza Ali also seems to think the same. “Actor in Law’s screening in Mumbai will further prove where the inspiration has been taken from. This is a very interesting timing for us, as obviously, their media will also be present,” Fizza said while talking to a local tabloid Something Haute. “This just proves that people are watching our cinema across the border. If they just want to take inspiration, they should do it ethically by giving due credit at least,” she added.
