Bollywood hunk Sidharth Malhotra has stepped in defense of Pakistani Heartthrob Fawad Khan.The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena had issued an ultimatum to all Pakistani actor to leave the country within 48 hours. This was done after the Uri attacks in which many army personnel lost their life.
Bollywood is at present divided on the issue. Some are for the ban while some against. Now Baar Baar Dekho actor Sidharth Malhotra has defended the Pakistani actors. He is of a view that actors are cast on their individuality and prowess not for their nationality.
Sidharth Malhotra said, “I feel that creativity or artists or any kind of creative field, be it a movie, has no connections with what happens politically in different countries. I don’t personally feel it’s going to make a difference to our situations. We’re just soft targets and that’s why they are commenting and trying to bring this issue up.”
He further added, “So it’s sad because I’ve worked with Fawad and we didn’t cast somebody because of their nationality. We Cast them as an individual and as performers, and there are so many other technicians who come from all around the world, in India, to work. Not only actors, there are cameramen, there are artists, there are makeup artists and people… So the world is becoming smaller and smaller and you can’t say yes or no to one particular nationality.”
Sidharth and Fawad were last seen in Karan Johar’s family drama ‘Kapoor and Sons’. At present, the Student Of The Year star is gearing up for his upcoming film ‘Reloaded’ that also stars Jacqueline Fernandez.
