One of the most well-known figures in Pakistan’s media industry is Humayun Saeed. He is a well-known actor and producer who also happens to own his own production house in a partnership called Six Sigma Plus. He won the best actor prize at the ARY awards for his performances in Jawani Phir Nai Ani (2015) and its sequel Jawani Phir Nai Ani 2 (2018), all of which were well received in Pakistan. The actor’s film, London Nahi Jaunga, will soon be released. Eid Ul Azha 2022 is when the movie is expected to be released.
“I tell you one thing, Shahrukh and Salman are the heroes of a big film industry but when a Pakistani film gets hit in Pakistan, it does more business than any other movie, you have to keep your statistics intact about it as JPNA & PNJ did great business while international movies were also released in the meantime,” said the actor in a recent interview.
Humayun Saeed further said that even Indian movies PK and Sanju could not cross his movies in terms of revenue. Likewise, in India whenever local films are a hit, they do massive business.
“It’s love for actors of your own country which makes people embrace their good work”, said the JPNA actor.
He was also quoted saying Pakistani people like Humayun and Fahad Mustafa more than they like Thor.
The internet community reacted strongly and questioned his statement, saying that the actor had gone a little too far to advertise his film. They claimed that JPNA was a fantastic film, but he had definitely overstated how good it was. The industry, according to others, is being destroyed by this confidence.
