Fawad Khan has finally reacted to the controversy surrounding the ban on Pakistani actors….
And he finally speaks up! After maintaining suspicious silence over the whole issue surrounding the ban on Pakistani artists in India, Fawad Khan finally gives a heartfelt reaction. Yes! Taking up to Facebook, he’s issued an official statement clarifying, “I’ve been in Lahore since July as my wife and I had been expecting our second child. I’ve received numerous requests from the media and from well wishers worldwide asking me for my thoughts on the sad incidents that took place in the past few weeks. As a father of two little children, I pray and wish like many others that together we can build and live in a more peaceful world. I believe we owe it to our children who will shape our tomorrow. This is the first time I have spoken on the matter. Please disregard any other words attributed to me during this time because I have not said them. I thank all my fans and fellow artists from Pakistan, India and people in general all over the world who have shown continued support for their belief in love and understanding to unite a divisive world.”
Although IMPPA in its latest discussion has revised the ban on Pakistani actors and has allowed Fawad’s next film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil to release across the nation. But the fact Fawad was ridiculed for being a Pakistani and was also trashed for making insensitive remarks which were not even said by him in first place, is definitely something that went way too far. In fact, there were even open letters written all over which questioned Fawad and all the other Pakistani actors for not condemning the ban. But guess, Fawad has put an end to all the allegations of being a betrayer or whatsoever by this one Facebook post. Now it’s left to see if Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees actress Mahira Khan too will voice her thoughts on this controversial debate.
