Saif Ali Khan has been recently in the news, promoting his upcoming flick Phantom. As is the case with some Bollywood films, this one also happened to depict Pakistan as a state which houses terrorist states. Apparently, actor Hamza Ali Abbasi had become fed of all the jibes and decided to respond in kind.
According to Hamza Ali Abbasi, no Pakistani actor had uttered hateful or incendiary words against the Indian state. Saif Ali Khan had recently said in an interview that he had lost faith in Pakistan, mainly due to the fact that a terrorist like Hafiz Saeed had his say and in response to his petition, Phantom was banned.
Hamza also cited incidences when the Indian government had ARY Films’ movie Waar banned in India. Also, he pointed out how Bin Roye, the recent flick starring Mahira Khan and Humayun Saeed was banned from Maharashtra.
“Let me now say this, because of movies like Phantom and hateful actors like Saif Ali Khan, I AM LOSING FAITH IN INDIA,” is how Hamza Ali Abbasi ended his status update.
Hamza Ali Abbasi often makes controversial and bold statements. However, this statement from him is likely to induce appreciation, at least from Pakistani quarters.
