Dude you are basically our cousins..I am not surprised. Despite some of the recent dips we've seen in Iran-Pakistan relation, the fact remains Iranians and Pakistanis share a deep bond, culturally and religiously. In every day life, Iranians and Pakistanis on a personal level are extremely close. I speak from personal experience.
Pakistan has not even began to reach its potential bro. Not just in cinema, but economically, socially, industrially etc. Unfortunately many nations in our region are plagued by deep mismanagement and corruption. This is not something that will be fixed in just one President or Prime Minister's term. But I am confident we'll overcome it.
Ethnically and culturally.. one only has to see the shared history we have..
