“I’m always looking for interesting films to watch with my son [Haroon]. There’s nothing wrong with an Avengers or cartoons once in a while, but I would like to expand his horizons, show him films from different cultures, and things that make him think on the world,” says the actor and director.

“Which is why I think Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne is a fantastic film for children; it’s very well crafted. Jojo Rabbit speaks about issues of tolerance and being different, and gives you a little bit of history in a palatable way for children of a certain age. As does the film Where is the Friend’s Home? One is Indian, one is Iranian, one is about the Holocaust — all films that help broaden children’s minds. And I wish there were more like these.”
