“Every human being present on this earth needs to take a clear position against terror of any kind and I urge with folded hands & bended knees, I urge Fawad Khan & all actors to take a clear position and condemn terror when it happens on our soil.”
“That would bridge differences that have suddenly been created in moments like these and so you are absolutely justified by asking them to do this and I do the same,” Mahesh said.
There are several Bollywood actors who have raised their voices in favor of the Pakistani actors. Salman Khan was one of the few who came forward and supported Pakistan. Kangana Ranaut, Ranbir Kapoor, Randeep Hooda and now Mahesh Bhatt are amongst the others who have spoken on the matter.
Mahesh was also questioned about how Ali Zafar was mum about the Uri Attacks, to this he replied: “People are frightened to take a public position. I wish that the Pakistani artistes take clear positions and let the bygones be bygones and they should once and for all prove where their hearts lie. As far as the civil society of Pakistan is concerned, they are against terrorism and so is my actors’ fraternity are also standing with us. Unfortunately, this is the time to hear them and since we don’t hear them, we conclude that they are tight-lipped because they have some other agenda which I clearly don’t think they have.”
Mahesh Bhatt appealed Pakistani actors to come forward and speak up against terrorism since it is a pressing issue. He believes it is a sensitive issue and the actors are merely scared of coming forward and hampering their image.
