Actor Alyy Khan, who was recently in ‘Zoya Akhtar’s ‘The ‘Archies’ and has worked in several Bollywood films, opens up about the key differences in how people approach work in India, where he earned much of his fame and respect, and his home country, Pakistan.
In an interview with Maliha Rehman, Alyy stated that he began his career in India, and whatever respect he has earned in his career started from there. He admitted that when he started working in Pakistan, he was already in the ‘nearly famous’ category.
Alyy mentioned that he didn’t have to face some of the problems that Pakistani actors face. Not only in India, he had also worked in other industries around the world, so he had that experience. The actor revealed that Pakistan’s public doesn’t support its own people very easily. When actors go to India and they’re praised there, suddenly their value increases.
When asked about the key differences between the film industries in India and Pakistan, the actor shared that people talk about budgets, but exposure is more important. He explained that there was a film called ‘Bheja Fry’; they made it for Rs 50 lakh, but it earned Rs 10 crore. He said they made a sequel for Rs 10 crore, but it didn’t do well.
According to him, in Pakistan, when they go to a commercial shoot, the budgets are high. They want to shoot in magic light, and you arrive on time, but the way people work is still as ‘dheela’ as it used to be. The actual work isn’t happening the way it should.
Alyy pointed out that the shoots that require 25 days often take 50, and there’s usually no issue with clashing dates because other projects are also delayed. That is why he had to fly back to Pakistan every few days when he was working in India.
