What do Indian Punjabis think of their Punjabi counterparts in Pakistan?

Whatever I understand about Pakistan Punjabis is through the media. I’ve been watching a lot of Pakistani Punjabi TV series on youtube. Their Punjabi is slightly way differ from ours but it is awesome. Sometimes I felt that there is hardly any difference between the humans from both sides. Both are fun loving, have a good largehearted and sense of humor. Pakistani Punjab excels in Punjabi music. One matter that I like about it is the spirituality touch. Their sufi singers are the good one. I also love their talk shows. I am amazed that certain journalists could be so forthright. Hassan Nissar is my own favourite.

Do Punjab India state humans felt nearer to Pakistanis than Indian culturally?

I can’t comment about everyone as everyone has a differ psychology but from my personal experience, I have seen both types of Punjabi’s. One of my buddies felt close to Pakistani punjabi’s more than any other type of culture committee here. She preferred to watch Pakistani shows, listening their music. While I have a buddy who does the opposite. He felt culturally much more closer to us than Pakistani punjabi (though we are not punjabi).

So, I have concluded that it all depends on the environment that you live in, your buddy circle and family background that makes you feel closer to anyone.
