Pak actor says Karan Johar should have given credit

During the interview, Tauqeer said, “Ek film Shah Rukh [Khan] ne meri ki hein… woh Parvaaz drama ka sara character usne as it is kiya. Which I appreciate but usko credit bhi dena chahiye tha… Karan Johar ko ko dena chahiye tha basically (There’s one film which Shah Rukh did, which was was a direct copy of my character in the drama Parvaaz. They should have given credit, especially Karan Johar).”

He went on to add, “Usme bakayda langda hein aur wohi right leg at the same way… complex thi role. A complex young boy who was having two options. One jo usko pasand hein aur dusra jo isko pasand karta hein. Na usko convey kar saka na isko mana kar saka. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna usko thoda filmy way mein dikhaya… lekin woh saari feel wahi hein. Unka banta hai that they should acknowledge (He also a limp on his feet just like mine. The role was complex where he had to chose between two extremes. One where he likes someone and the other where is liked. KANK glamourised the same concept but the point is the same. They should have acknowledged that).”
