Indian Director ‘Mahesh Bhatt’ Applaudes Pakistani Veteran Actor and Producer ‘Humayun Saeed’
Bollywood veteran Mahesh Bhatt is known for giving credit where it’s due, even if it means appreciating Pakistani artists. He has been extremely supportive to stars such as Humaima Malick, Shaan Shahid and Mawra Hocane. This time, Bhatt has extended his good wishes to none other than Humayun Saeed.
The Raaz film-maker recently lauded the local actor’s last two ventures, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani (JPNA) and Punjab Nahi Jaungi. And as Saeed’s JPNA 2 is excelling at the box-office, Bhatt took to social media on Friday to sing praises for the film’s protagonist. “The rise and the rise and the RISE of Humayun Saeed!,” he posted.

To this appraisal, Humayun Saeed responded:

Back in 2015, when the first JPNA came out, Bhatt flew to Lahore to attend its premiere upon Saeed’s request. It was then rumored that the duo were planning to work together on a film called Dushman, hoping to bring India and Pakistan closer in the thick of strained relations.
However, that never happened up to date. Humayun Saeed has been successful in grasping worldwide attention to his talent including people across the border.
