The last few weeks have been tremendously tensed up and strained between India and Pakistan, in lieu of the Uri attacks in India and the ensuing surgical strike that conducted by India along the LoC. Bollywood has become one of the industries to be worst hit by this. Films like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees have become the talking point of many, since these are the two big films that star Pakistani actors. While Ae Dil Hai Mushkil stars Fawad Khan, Raees features Mahira Khan as its leading lady opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
Readers may recall that, we had reported about Fawad Khan recently clearing the air about the many rumors floating about his take on India. After Fawad Khan, it is now the turn of Mahira Khan to condemn the terror attacks. She, today, took to Facebook and wrote the following:
“In the 5 years that I have been working as an actor I believe that I have tried my best to keep my country’s respect intact – by being a professional and by representing Pakistan here and elsewhere to the best of my abilities.
As a Pakistani and citizen of the world I strongly condemn any act of terror, any loss of human life no matter which soil it is on. I will not rejoice in bloodshed and war. I will always hope for and dream of a world where my child can live without it, and always plead with everyone to imagine a peaceful world.
It has also been in this time my faith in saner minds and goodness has been restored, thank you for the messages, love and support.
Hoping and praying for peace always.
