Bollywood veteran Mahesh Bhatt is often in the news for showering love across the border and this time too, he did much of the same. The director took to Twitter and praised Humayun Saeed who’s currently riding high on the success of his latest release Jawani Phir Nahi Aani 2 (JPNA 2).

This isn’t the first time the director has shown encouragement towards our artist. In his tweet, he said, “The rise and the rise and the RISE of Humayun Saeed!” which clearly indicated his love for Humayun.



We’re sure the tweet made Humayun’s day and he was quick to respond with a sweet message following the tweet.



Three years ago, Mahesh flew to Lahore to attend the premiere of Jawani Phir Nahi Aani and was insistent that two work together on a project that was supposed to improve India-Pakistan relations. However, unfortunately, things couldn’t fall through and the project never happened but clearly Humayun did grasp the attention across the border and won the much deserved praise of his fans.

Despite the embargo on Pakistani artistes performing in India, Mahesh has always been of the opinion to strengthen the relations of the two countries. According to a report in DNA, Mahesh tried to convince the Teefa star Ali Zafar into singing a song on the theme of cross-border peace to which Ali even agreed. He then roped in Shafqat Amanat Ali for the same but unfortunately the song never saw the light of day.
