Faysal Qureshi, one of the most popular actors in Pakistan, was recently in Istanbul, where he shot an exclusive interview with long-term friend fellow actor Aijaz Aslam, for Maria Wasti’s show Sunrise from Istanbul which will be aired on upcoming Pakistani-Turkish TV channel SEE TV soon.
Ever since his return, Faysal has been busy shooting his home production Bheegi Palkein, the cast of which will be revealed later next week.
Sharing his feelings about hosting Jeet Ka Dum during Ramzan, Faysal said “I am really enjoying hosting Jeet Ka Dum during Ramzan. It is a little hectic as usually I am hosting it just twice a week as opposed to everyday, but I feel this show perfectly reinforces the true spirit of the holy month of Ramzan which is all about giving. I am lucky that through this show I get a chance to spread happiness in the lives of those who truly deserve it.”
“This year I am also trying to discover more about my religion and make extra efforts to practice it in my daily life. In recent years, I have started seeing that the actual meaning of Ramzan is getting lost somewhere between the lavish feasts and fancy dine outs. There is no harm in celebrating with your family, but one should also not forget those who are not as privileged. Happiness only increases by sharing!” added Faysal.
