Interview: Khalid Malik talks JOSH – One of Pakistani Films To Hit Cinemas this Eid

Khalid Malik - Josh FilmIn the build up to the release of the writer/director and producer Iram Parveen Bilal‘s forthcoming Pakistani film Josh جوش that hits cinemas this Eid ul Fitr, we were fortunate enough to have a chat with one of the stars from the film, Khalid Malik and talked about a little bit of everything, including working with Iram and upcoming projects. Check out the interview below.

What projects, films et all are you working on after “Josh.”?

I worked on Sabiha Sumar‘s film “Good Morning Karachi” (formerly known as Rafina). I am not sure what’s happening with respect to its Pakistani release, but I do know that it will be in the festival circuit this year.

How is it working with Iram, please be blunt?

Iram is very protective of her project, as one should be. Very particular and a little strict at times on set 🙂 only speak when you are spoken to. But completely passionate and dedicated to what she does. At the end of the day she produced the film in what were difficult circumstances and on a limited budget.

The one performance of yours which you thought didn’t receive the expected appreciation?

I am yet to experience that performance.

Your favorite Music Genre?

I listen to a lot of music, and all kinds of music. But I would say pop and ahem a bit of bhangra never hurt anyone.

The one song that relates most to your life?

tubthumping, chumbawumba

Your message for upcoming/aspiring actor/actresses?

This path is arduous, it’s demoralizing; but to reap the rewards be consistent, and keep at it.
