Pakistan's new Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani is a big fan of Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai and melody queen Lata Mangeshkar.
"While in prison, I used to watch all the films of Aishwarya Rai on my laptop, in addition to listening to songs Lataji. Let me say that I am a big fan of Aishwarya Rai now," Gillani, a die hard romantic, told a private news channel.
Gillani, who belongs to a family descended from a Sufi saint, has become a fan Lata when he was jailed in 2001 after being arrested by Mushaarraf on charges of abuse of his position as president of the National Assembly to make irregular appointments.
The 55 years in prison the former minister has chosen offers over from President Pervez Musharraf's regime to be released in exchange for cutting ties with the Pakistan People's Party.
With the new Prime Minister of choice for Bollywood actresses and musicians, Pakistanis hope to see more Indian films en route to their show starts.
