Ah, the regret of passing on something is a feeling that we are all familiar with and actors are no exception to it. There have been many instances of actors opting out of projects either due to prior commitments or miscellaneous reasons. In the latest episode of The Munshi Show featuring the hitmaker duo of Hareem Farooq and Ali Rehman Khan, the two actors talked about their regrets of having to pass on two of the most critically acclaimed films of recent times – Cake and Laal Kabootar.
While talking about some movies that have been pitched to Ali, he was asked whether or not he regrets doing less television than films as TV is the bigger medium in Pakistan. Ali replied saying that he only has one regret and that is not being able to do Cake when it was offered to him.
“We were doing Parchi at that time and unfortunately the dates clashed. Parchi got delayed and I could’ve done Cake.” Ali candidly explained. He said that the film had looked good to him when it was offered and then ultimately came out to be the film it is so he does regret passing it on but not too much.
“It’s not like, ‘oh my god!’ or I lost any sleep over it.”

During the rapid-fire round, Hareem was asked about one role from recent times that she wished was offered to her. Taking a moment to reply to the answer, Hareem confessed that she wished she could’ve done Laal Kabootar.
“I wish I could’ve done it. It is a beautiful film. I was offered to do it but I couldn’t do it because when it was supposed to start shooting, I was stuck with the promotions [of Parchi].”
Well, regrets are a part and parcel of life and the two stars are very happy with the way their careers have shaped up and proudly own every project that they have done. Apart from this juicy bit of revelation, the episode was full of the duo’s dynamic chemistry as they talked about their future projects, how they are each other’s wing-men, and they even put on their rapping hats and flawlessly executed the Heer Maan Ja rap!
