The rising agitation between India-Pakistan over the ban of Pak celebs has created a stir in both the countries.
While IMPAA has debarred Pak celebs from working in India, the Pakistani channels too have refused to air Indian serials.
But looks like filmmaker Anubhav Sinha is quite unfazed by the escalating enmity between the two countries and has revealed that his upcoming directorial ‘Tum Bin 2’ has a strong Pakistani connection.
No, the movie doesn’t feature any Pakistani artist. Instead, ‘Tum Bin 2’ has been inspired from the works of Pakistani dramatist, playwright and scriptwriter Haseena Moin
The revelation was made by Sinha himself, who confessed that he has taken a lot of cues from Moin’s renowned Pakistani dramas for his 2001 release ‘Tum Bin’ and even for its sequel now.
"Two of my favourite dramas are 'Ankahi Tanhaiyan' and 'Dhoop Kinare'. A lot of the screenplay in 'Tum Bin' has been inspired by her television serials and a few of the critics and industry members who saw the first instalment were quick to notice this similarity.
"The second instalment too is inspired in someway from Pakistani dramas because I feel the way they tell a story is sublime," Sinha said in a statement.
While Sinha’s confession has come at a crucial point, this might land ‘Tum Bin 2’ in trouble, considering the hostile situation between India-Pakistan.
Written and directed by Anubhav Sinha, ‘Tum Bin 2’ is jointly produced by him and Bhushan Kumar of the T-Series music label.
Shot in the aesthetic landscape of Scotland, the movie reunites Sinha with Kumar after a gap of 15 years.
‘Tum Bin 2’, featuring Neha Sharma, Aditya Seal and Aashim Gulati will hit the screens on November 18.
