Shaan Shahid takes a dig at Fawad Khan over his Punjabi accent
Shaan Shahid believed that Maula Jatt’s lead cast should have worked harder on their Punjabi accent for better performance.
Recently, Shaan Shahid appeared in an interview for the promotion of his newly released film Zarrar.
During a show, host Ahmed Ali Butt asked his opinion on Bilal Lashari casting Fawad Khan for the role of “Maula Jatt” and not him.
Ahmed Ali Butt told Shaan that Lashari said that he didn’t cast Shahid for the role because he was a legend and the director is looking for a pair of actors, so he cast, Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi.
Shaan said that it depends on the director’s vision, if he wants to cast a pair, it is absolutely his call.
However, Shaan said that he feels that Hamza and Fawad didn’t do justice to the Punjabi language and accent.
He said that “as actors, one must not give excuses that they don’t speak a particular language. If any Pakistani actor is cast in an English movie, would they have the same issue? They will speak it fluently”.
Shaan praised Humaima Malick’s work in the film “The Legend of Maula Jatt”.
