Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who will be making her Bollywood debut in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’, has finally shared her views about the ongoing tension between India and Pakistan.
The actress is one of the many Pakistani artistes, who have been banned by the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA), from working in India till the relations between the governments of the neighbouring countries are favourable.
While many Pakistani actors have chosen to keep mum during this tense period, Mahira expressed her views by sharing a post of fellow Pak artiste Alizay Jaffer.
The post, which is a personal account of Jaffer’s experiences of her time in India, and the friendships she continues to maintain with her pals who love her still the same.

She starts her post by saying, “It’s strange, this affinity with India. I find myself getting increasingly upset at the abuse and hatred tossed from one border to another, with little rationale apart from the 69-year-old chips on our shoulders. These chips have, over time, turned into boulders, and who doesn’t crumble under the weight of those?”
Jaffer ends her note saying, “It is comforting somehow, that when I messaged one of my closest friends across the border, expressing concern over the destructive megalomaniac tendencies of our governments, he responded and said, ‘It doesn’t matter what they do, you know I will always love you’.
It is comforting somehow, that in 20 years’ time, if you look away from the textbooks, and turn to your ancient scriptures or your holy books, it won’t take you long to see that since time immemorial, there is only one message they are trying to convey, only one message we should be paying attention to; and that message is Love.”
