Mehwish Hayat takes on Amitabh Bachan over his anti-Pakistan sentiments

Actress Mehwish Hayat has expressed disappointment over  Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s refusal to take on the role of a Pakistani.

Hayat took to Twitter to talk about the power movies have in improving ties between countries.

Recently, it was reported that Bachchan turned down the role of a Pakistani protagonist in an upcoming Bollywood movie. The movie is being directed by Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty, reported Bollywood Hungama.

The actor is reported to have turned down the role following tensions between India and Pakistan in February 14.

He said he decided to turn down the role because he doesn’t want to embroil himself in any controversies or be labelled as an “anti-nationalist,” reported the Deccan Chronicle.

Pookutty, who will make his directorial debut with the movie, has reportedly been discussing the role with Bachchan for the past two years.

    This proves that Mr. Bachan too is scared of what actually goes on in India and what will happen to him. So this is the true picture of Indian tolerant society.

    Here Bushra Ansari can take her get up as Indian as Hindu in recent songs. But people of India don’t even take Pakistani or Muslims get up in movies or so. This is the conservative mind set of Indians always

    This shows that Amitabh is merely a hero of screen but NOT of real life. Sad and disappointing. He is a dumbo with myopic outlook. Man you need to broaden your outlook and learn how a successful man behaves.

    Ms. Mehwish is not upto that level to criticize Mr. Bachan as she would probably take ages to reach there…!

    I find is extremely hypocritical that people like Mehwish, Hamza, Shaan..etc who have very publicly shared that they wont work in Bollywood, have audacity to give these kind of lectures to Mr Bachchan, If Mehwish was so concerned about bridging gaps, perhaps she should have taken the first step towards working in Bollywood during times when there were so issues. It’s rather easy to give a lecture now.
