Since Inaamulhaq looked quite promising in the role of Aftab – a Pakistani character who does Hindi Film piracy and sells them cross the border, his character has convinced a lot of people to believe him to be a Pakistani actor. Inaamulhaq being an Indian has managed to get the right accent of a Pakistani in Filmistaan.
When asked Inaamulhaq about the people he has come across believing him to be a Pakistani Actor, he laughingly said, “These days when ever I go out on any theater visit or with my friends, people come to me to congratulate for my performance and get really shocked to know I am an Indian Actor and not a Pakistaani one. I guess my involvement with the character of Aftab convinced people to believe the same. I am an Indian, born and bought up in Saharanpur.”
Well, reel and real do sometimes get meshed up. But this is nothing less than a compliment for him we are sure.
