Being offered by Hollywood is indeed a big deal and Pakistani celebrities have been offered roles in Hollywood owing to their immaculate acting chops. These celebrities include actors and singers such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Strings, Atif Aslam, Mahnoor Baloch, Adnan Siddiqui, and many more who have had a chance to showcase their prolific talent in Hollywood. Lately, Feroze khan too rejected the offer from Hollywood as he had chosen the path of divinity and started off living his life according to Islamic teachings. Syra yousaf also revealed that she had been received offer from Hollywood but she turned down. Syra Yousuf has been currently ruling the hearts of many as her husband, Shahroz Sabzwari, decided to part ways with her.
In the clip, Syra revealed that she got an offer from Hollywood while she was giving an interview to HSY.
However, she also said that she had rejected the offer. When HSY asked her the reason for rejecting it, here’s what Syra had to say,
“I HAD TO REJECT IT. WHEN THEY SENT ME THE SCRIPT, THE ROLE WAS A BIT TOO BOLD FOR ME. IT ISN’T NECESSARY TO PROJECT EVERYTHING AS IT IS. I BELIEVE IN THAT. EVEN IF YOU ARE PLAYING A ROLE OF A MISTRESS, IT ISN’T NECESSARY TO GET NAKED.”
We solemnly respect her wise decision and that’s what we would have expected from her side as response. Her most notable projects which are loved by many are Mera Naseeb, Bilqee Kaur, Chalay Thay Saath, Project Ghazi, Tanhaiyan Naye Silsilay.
It is good to represent Pakistani internationally but Pakistani celebrities should focus on Pakistani cinema more and make it grow through their talents. As we are getting offers from Hollywood it is evident that they do recognize our talent and it is praise worthy.
