Javed Sheikh is a popular name and face in the Pakistani film industry. The actor has a string of avid followers overseas too, especially in the UAE. With over 100 films and TV shows to his credit, the Na Maloom Afraad actor is geared to be part of the Pakistan International Screen Awards jury, for the ceremony which will be held in Dubai on Friday, February 7, 2020. Speaking to The Khaleej Times, Sheikh shared that there is no better place than the Gulf emirate to host the event. The superstar also expressed his happiness about being selected as one of the jury members.
"I'm very proud and very happy to be part of the Pakistan International Screen Awards. I'm sure these awards will create history. I'm looking forward to attending the event in Dubai and being part of the jury," he said. A handful of Sheikh’s films have been nominated for the forthcoming extravaganza. These include Superstar, Wrong No. 2 and others. However, he found it hard to pick his favourite amongst them. "Plenty of them. They are all my friends and colleagues, so I can't name a favourite. I've been working with them for so many years – they are all very good,” Sheikh added.
He also weighed in on the hospitality of the people of Dubai and its scenic locations. "I think Dubai is the right place, the best venue, for PISA. Dubai has always been welcoming to people from all over the world, for award functions, musical shows and premieres. PISA is the biggest award ceremony of its kind happening. Everyone is excited and happy when they hear it is taking place in Dubai - and they're like 'oh, let's go to Dubai!' Dubai is a very popular place – with everyone." Sheikh will next be seen in Delhi Gate and Chaa Ja Re.
