He said, "I never said I want to work in Pakistani films, It is neither my wish. I want to categorically state this. I have been misquoted," .
He clarified that, "I just said that I liked the Pakistan's TV serial 'Humsafar', but never said ours are boring. I only said ours are a little slow”.
A report says, Paresh also said that he feels Indian shows were boring.
Earlier on Wednesday, he was reportedly quoted saying that he would "love to work in Pakistani films and shows" as he loved all Pakistani TV serials like 'Humsafar', and "the way they act, the story, the writing, the language."
After the Uri terror attack, Pakistan artistes are banned.
The 67-year-old actor says cinema and cricket, bridge the gap between the two countries.
"I believe that artistes and cricketers don't come and throw bombs.
They are not terrorists, rather they bridge the gap between the two countries. But when the mood is not good, why rake up issues at that time? It is better to stay with your country," Rawal said.
The actor maintains that he is not okay with the ban on Pakistani artistes.
Rawal was recently in the news for his controversial tweet against author Arundhati Roy where he suggested that she should be tied to an army jeep to deter stone pelters in Kashmir.
