I sign only projects guaranteed to be a hit, says Muneeb Butt
Muneeb Butt started his career a few years ago and is easily one of the finest stars in our industry today.
Through his versatility and his effervescent charm, he has managed to make his place in the audience’s as well as the critic’s hearts. Having appeared in one hit play after another, it seems that the coming year is going to be just as exciting for the bright star as this one was.
In a recent interview, he talked about his choice of projects and said: “After finishing the shooting of ‘Yaariyan’ I didn’t sign any project for six months. There are so many projects running on-screen which were offered to me but I didn’t sign any. I was looking for something different and didn’t want to do a character which I have done before. I wanted to do a project which has some message.”
“My last four projects were back to back hit so now I don’t want to take the risk. I select the content which will be a hit. We know what people want to see by going through rating sheets and we get the idea what kind of content people want to see. So at the end of the day, you need to choose projects which are good from a business point of view.”
“If people stop watching sub-standard shows then productions of such dramas will be stopped. The people who say that it are the fault of producers who make such dramas so it is not their fault, it is the fault of viewers who watch such sub-standard dramas,” Butt added.
“You have remote in your hand and you can change the channel but if you are not changing the channel then you have an interest in it. So it is all about your interest and we have to produce it. If you stop watching sub-standard dramas then channel owners will stop making them.”
