Popular TV actress Sara Khan is in Pakistan and shooting for her Pakistani show. We all know that the things are getting worse between India and Pakistan because of Uri attack. IMPPA (Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association) has announced a ban on all Pakistani artistes working in India. In a recent interview with TOI, Sara opened up on the situation there and also shared her views. She said:
"My family is extremely concerned and I try to calm them down all the time. There's nothing to worry about. In fact, my Pakistani colleagues go out of their way to make me feel safe. People here are warm and hospitable. I will be home on October 6."
When she was asked about what is the ongoing situation in Pakistan she said,"It's disturbing to see so much tension between the two countries. People here are praying that the unrest ends soon. Whenever something like this (terror attack) happens, Pakistanis fear that they will be blamed for it."
She said that Pakistani love our culture."They appreciate our culture and want to travel to India. They also enquire if they will be treated well when they come here. I tell them that Indians welcome everyone as we believe in atithi devo bhava. Pakistanis want to be friends."
About the ban of Pakistani artists she said,"I don't support it. Art has to be above politics. Artistes believe in spreading love, peace and brotherhood. I want to emphasise that terrorism in any form, anywhere, needs to be condemned unequivocally. I hope India and Pakistan can bridge their differences and work towards peace and understanding."
