It is not new for Pakistani actors to work with the Bollywood superstars. Saba Qamar, Mahira Khan, Jawed Sheikh, Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan are among some Pakistani actors who were offered roles with the Bollywood stars and they accepted and played them. Emmad Irfani was also offered the same opportunity, but, things did not go in his favour.
Emmad Irfani it would not be wrong to say is among the most notable handsome men of the industry. Even before he made his debut in acting, he was already a brilliant star. His role in Cheekh, broke all the stigmas that say that models cannot be good actors.

Recently, on Iffat Ommar’s show, he revealed that he was actually offered a role against Kareena Kapoor in the movie Veere Di Wedding which was a comedy film released in 2018. He further said that however, due to political tensions between India and Pakistan, it could not happen.
When asked if he was upset with the situation he replied that he was, and further added that they had to start the shooting from September 2016, but Kareena Kapoor was expecting at that point, so she said that she would be resuming the shooting after her delivery, hence the shooting was delayed for a year and during that span, a lot changed.
