Mikaal Zulfiqar Says Bollywood Portrays Pakistani Actors In Unfavorable Roles

"India jo hai hamesha advantage leta hai ek Pakistani actor ka. Ab woh kis tarah leta hai? Somewhere down the line woh apse aisa ek kaam kawayega jisme yeh dikhaya jayega ki yeh ek Pakistani actor aya hai, ya toh the role that you are given is such (India always takes advantage of Pakistani actors, either you are made to do something that shows you are a Pakistani or your role is portrayed in such a way)."

The actor further said he was content working in Pakistani films and shows if he was not treated as an equal to Indian actors. Mikaal Zulfiqar during the interview, also emphasized that he desired equal treatment and opportunities for Pakistani actors in the Indian film industry.

The actor added, "To be honest, I don't think bohot notable roles woh dete bhi hain, main ab pichle 10-20 saalon ki baat kar raha hoon, jo mera career hai uske hisab se. Usse pehle kya hua mujhe woh nahi pata. And my reason for that is that I don't mind jab tak equal grounds pe liya jaye aur hume uss tareh na portray kiya jaye. It is what we deserve, level-playing field pe hume khada karein. Just to do a supporting role, koi aisi cheeze karna jis se aapkta mazak yahan ude, it is not worth it. So jab level-playing field hoga tab theek hai, other than that we are fine here (As far as what I have seen in my career, I think Pakistani actors are not on an equal footing in Indian films. Just for a supporting role if you are made it do something that will be made fun of in Pakistan, then I am happy to be working only in our films and shows)."


Mikaal Zulfiqar's career has spanned in both Bollywood and Pakistani entertainment industry. Before the 2016 ban on Pakistani artistes in India, he worked in Bollywood films including Baby in 2015 and Shoot on Sight in 2008. In Pakistan, he has featured in several shows and films, including Pani Jaisa Piyar, Cake Sherdil.
