Many of his followers agree to his view and said that Indian producers always follow Pakistani content. Have a look what people said…..
Very different aesthetic and stories

Angan is based on a novel which is quiet an old one. Before it was dastaan which was epic. So i suggest you to not compare your bollywood movie with these tv shows cuz these are based upon famous novels and reality unlike overdramatic so called historical bollywood movies.

That was the dream. KJo would've signed many Pakistani stars if not for the current political climate.

The two might be set in pre partition but angan is more intense tv drama whereas kalank looks more comercialised with glamourous outfits and songs pictured on a grand scale KJo style! However im enjoying angan and looking forward to kalank😊

Dastaan was an epic no bollywood film can match it’s beauty. After Dastaan, Aangan is a masterpiece and template for period plays/films. Copycats from across the border cannot match it’s magnificence.
