Punjabi producer, singer and actor Gippy Grewal was in Pakistan recently. The Carry On Jatta famed actor came to pay his homage at the Kartarpur Gurdwara. His visit has been a highlight of the mainstream and social media in Pakistan.
Alongside completing his religious duties, Gippy Grewal also visited his ancestral village in Pakistan. His visit garnered more attention when Grewal gave a statement about Pakistani film Punjab Nahi Jaungi and expressed his high regards for the leading lady of the film Mehwish Hayat, saying that he would like to work with her. In response, Mehwish Hayat also thanked the actor and suggested that he should be given a Pakistani film.
Indian Punjabi actor Gippy Grewal enjoys fandom in both India and Pakistan. After his arrival, the actor reportedly said, “It has only been a few hours since I have arrived in Pakistan however the love and respect I have received in these few hours, will stay with me forever.”
Gippy Grewal also met Chal Mera Putt actors Ifthikar Thakur and Akram Udaas before leaving Pakistan. After the success of the Indian Punjabi film Chal Mera Putt, Iftikhar Thakur and Akram Udaas are now working on Chal Mera Putt 2.
Can another collaboration between Punjabi Pakistani and Indian actors possibly be the motive behind this meeting? We sure hope so! If that happens, it will certainly be a great news!
Pakistan and India’s Punjabi actors previously collaborated in Chal Mera Putt and this collaboration proved to be highly beneficial for both the communities. Chal Mera Putt became the all-time highest Punjabi grosser in the overseas market as both Indians and overseas Pakistanis came out to see this film.
India has banned Pakistani actors from working in Bollywood. However, India’s Punjab is wholeheartedly collaborating with Pakistani actors on films. We at Epk, have also been urging that Pakistan should surely collaborate with Punjabi actors from India! It is time for these communities to come together as this collaboration can create a big market for Punjabi films overseas especially in Canada, Uk and the Usa.
