Ac­tor-pro­ducer Anil Kapoor, who has tasted suc­cess in Hol­ly­wood as well, says he is open to do films and TV shows in Pak­istan too as shar­ing love makes any in­dus­try bet­ter. “Ev­ery­one should work to­gether. I wish to work in Pak­istani films and TV shows. Shar­ing love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion make any in­dus­try grow,” he told me­dia at the IIFA Awards green carpet here on Satur­day.

Dur­ing a tete-a-tete with film­maker Rakeysh Om­prakash Mehra and US-based In­dian ac­tress Freida Pinto at the In­ter­na­tional In­dian Film Academy (IIFA) ex­trav­a­ganza here, Anil spoke about how films can cater to the so­ci­ety.

The “Mr. In­dia” star, who has fea­tured in Amer­i­can TV se­ries “24” and Hol­ly­wood films like “Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble – Ghost Pro­to­col” and “Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire”, said: “The more real it is, the bet­ter it is. That’s the con­nect.”

“I know dance and songs are in our cul­ture, but we have great sto­ries to tell and I am sure they will be ap­pre­ci­ated any­where in the world. All these things are very im­por­tant for films, and the aware­ness of all these films is im­por­tant for the world.” The ac­tor re­ceived the Best Ac­tor in a Sup­port­ing Role award for his per­for­mance in “Dil Dhad­kane do” at the awards night.
