Gohar Rasheed Speaks His Mind On Bilal, Rangreza And Senior Actors


The talented Gohar Rasheed believes that Rangreza will do well at the Box Office because it is not just a film driven by story but one that has the appropriate actors playing well-written characters, revolving around music. Gohar, who plays Wasim Walay and dominates the trailer of the upcoming venture, also dismissed rumors of the rivalry between him and his friend and Rangreza co-star Bilal Ashraf.


‘If Bilal becomes successful, then nobody would be happier than me and if I succeed, I am sure Bilal will be the happiest person.’ Gohar told Very Filmi in an exclusive interview. ‘If there was an issue then why would we have worked together in 021, Yalghaar and now Rangreza. Our success will help Pakistani films grow and that’s what the objective should be. We play characters in the film, not ourselves and when you will see us in our onscreen avatars, you will be able to see the amount of hard work behind our roles.’

‘As for Rangreza, it was the toughest shoot of my career as I had to take on not one but two heavyweights with whom I shared the most number of scenes – Saleem Meraj and Shahid Naqvi. These two actors were so charged up in their scenes with me that it made me go the extra mile so that I could match them if not better them.


I also got a chance to work with seniors like Tanveer Jamal and Salman Peerzada but the best moment I shared on screen was with the legendary Akbar Subhani. We all have grown up watching him in Uncle Urfi and Sitara Aur Mehrunnisa so when I faced him for an aggressive scene, I just couldn’t get myself to be aggressive. He understood that and asked me to do the scene just as I wanted and forget that a senior actor (whom I respect) is standing in front of him. He made me believe that I can do it and thankfully, I was able to impress him, and hopefully the audience will love it as well.’
