He asked me to show him how to perform namaaz and after I demonstrated it once, he did it exactly the same way. I was amazed. He is a total professional and has no airs about being a star. We shot scenes portraying the cruelty that the Taliban were doing in the name of Islam (like killing and hanging people." Sayed further adds.
