The Pakistani actor, who was last seen opposite Bipasha Basu in CREATURE 3D says, “I don't have many friends in Bollywood. I don't even have many friends even in Lollywood or in Pakistan. I make very few friends. And I don't think in media or in professional life you make friends. After becoming successful or after your professional life, you hardly make friends. You make friends only in your childhood when you go through ups and downs together. When you are grown up, you only judge people.”
He goes on to add, “I don't make friends and I am happy being like that. I don't want to trust anyone nor do I want to be trusted by anyone. Because once the trust is broken, you only end up being disappointed. So I don't keep hopes. I am just very happy because hopes always disappoint you. I am happy with no friends.”
Ask how Bollywood has been to him as an industry and he says, “I have met all types of people in Bollywood. This has happened to me in Pakistan also. The mentality of people in Indian and Pakistan is more or less the same. So you don't say that ‘it was a dream land and it was utopia'. Everything is not perfect here. I met some best people and some worst people in Bollywood. So it's the same. In Pakistan also I met some people who are more poisonous than a snake. And there are some who are sweeter than honey.”
As we are on Bollywood, Imran Abbas is pretty gung-ho about his next film JAANISAAR which releases this Friday. It's being directed by Muzaffar Ali of UMRAO JAAN fame.
