Pakistani actress Madiha Imam’s heartfelt opinions on Indo-Pak relationship
Pakistani actress Madiha Imam who is playing the lead role in Zee5 web series ‘Ek Jhooti Love Story’ is getting rave reviews for her role. We recently spoke to Madiha where she spoke about the web series, television and movie industries in Pakistan and India, working with Manisha Koirala in ‘Dear Maya’, ban of Pakistani actors in India and other stuff.
When asked how she views the complex relationship of art and politics, Madiha said, “I don’t have a clear view as of now. I don’t involve myself in politics. I only know one thing that these two things go separate ways. They are never supposed to come together. When you mix two different things, you don’t get good results. Especially when it comes to art and artistes, the nature of an artiste is liberty as it strives from liberty. You can’t stop creativity because once you stop them, you are putting them in a box which is not their nature.”
The cross-cultural and cross-border ban on artistic and cultural activities have affected the art and community of artistes at large. On this Madiha agreed and said, “Artistes are very kind-hearted and most artistes that I know of. They do usually become very sensitive when these things happen. This influence their final product which is also a representation of your own country, or the region that you are living in. Art and artistes can bring great changes in the world. Creativity requires liberty”.
