May the most deserving talent win at Pakistan International Screen Awards: Suhail Galadari
Jury member shares his thoughts on the upcoming Pakistan Screen Awards.
As preparations are in full swing for the inaugural Pakistan International Screen Awards (PISA) that brings together the country's television, film, music, fashion and social media stars, we speak to jury member Suhail Galadari to know his thoughts on the massive event.
How do you feel about being a jury member for the Pakistan International Screen Awards?
I am honoured to be part of such a prestigious event, and a member of the PISA jury that includes prominent personalities from the world of fashion, film, business and other industries.
Many famous stars have been nominated in various categories for these awards. Who are your favourite actors/actresses from Pakistan?
Some of my favourite actors have been nominated, but it would be unfair to pick just one at the moment. The list has top names like Imran Ashraf, Rehan Sheikh, Hira Mani and Saboor Aly and Sanam Baloch, but I will leave it to the entire panel of judges to pick out the best talents from the nomination list.
Dubai has hosted many award ceremonies in the past and is a popular hub for entertainment from the Subcontinent - Pakistan and India. What are your thoughts on PISA being held in Dubai?
As a member of the jury, I look forward to seeing the finest of Pakistani cinema, television and music stars represented in the city of Dubai. It is great to have this prestigious show in Dubai celebrating the best of Pakistani entertainment.
What is the most important quality, according to you, that an awards jury member should have?
One has to be fair, be unbiased and honour deserving talent.
Could you tell us something more about what your role as a jury member for PISA entails?
I have to make sure that I keep my personal preferences aside and make the right decisions.
