Pakistani actor Danish Taimoor recently revealed that he was offered the lead role in the star-studded Bollywood hit film, Veere Di Wedding. He made an appearance on a television show last week with his wife, Ayeza Khan, during which they both spilled the tea on a few things. The Jab We Wed actor and his wife were clad in traditional attire and were quite the entertaining guests.
During the show, the famed Pakistani actor revealed that he was offered a role opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan in Veere Di Wedding. He went on to share that all the details and dates had even been finalized however, due to political tensions and the escalated grievances between India and Pakistan they could not go ahead.
“We were all ready to go for the shoot but then we got to know that Kareena was pregnant,” said Taimoor. “After Kareena delivered her baby in 2016, the situation between India and Pakistan got worse,” he went on to explain.
Amid escalating tensions, Pakistan has placed a ban on the screening of all Bollywood films and content in cinemas across the country. The move came in reaction to Indian air raids that struck near the northern Pakistani village of Jaba, which is located approximately 10km west of the border with Pakistan-administered Kashmir, and about 60km from the Line of Control that divides Indian and Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
Danish Taimoor is currently essaying the character of Haris in hit drama serial Mera Rab Waris. In more recent news Danish was named ‘Best TV actor’ by an online poll in Pakistan. A sample of both men and women from across Pakistan were asked “In your opinion, which actor’s performance is the best on television?” In response, 10% said Danish Taimoor; 7% each said Faisal Qureshi and Humayun Saeed; 6% each said Fawad Khan, Fahad Mustafa, and Imran Abbas,” as per reports on local media.
