Fawad Khan, the Pakistani heartthrob has finally broken his silenece on religious intolerance! The actor and his compatriot Mahira Khan were targetted by right wing party Shiv Sena, who proclaimed that thet will not allow any Pakistani national to work in Maharashtra. Both actors have won the audience over in India and have also landed plum roles in big production houses. Fawad was well-received in Khoobsurat and went on to sign other films after that in Bollywood. The industry is also excited about Mahira Khan's debut in Raees.
Talking about the growing cases of religious intolerance and the mood against Pakistanis in India, Fawad affirmed that one should ignore the groups that work against Pakistan. The Kapoor and Sons actor said, "I have never faced any issues working in India. The groups that work against Pakistan should be ignored because there are similar groups present in Pakistan too. We as artists should ignore such groups and concentrate on our work."
While Fawad has completed shooting for Kapoor and Sons, Mahira will be seen making her dream Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Raees. Fawad Khan also said he would also love to invite SRK to visit the latter’s native city Peshawar, reported the article in bollywoodlife.com.
