In an recent interview to entertainment website Bollywood Hungama, Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah said, “It is tragic that often-times performers from Pakistan are prevented from performing in this country. Recently, there was a very disturbing instance Pakistani artiste’s work being destroyed in Ahmedabad. But they welcome us in Pakistan with open arms.”

“I keep going to Pakistan because I feel it is very important to have a person-to-person contact. We can’t afford to be swayed by all the political rhetoric.  Politicians will change colours whenever it suits them. Indians are being brainwashed into believing Pakistan to be the enemy country without being aware of the historical background.”

Shah further added that Indian people need to look beyond political animosity.”I’d make a very strong appeal for that. And this has nothing whatsoever to with my being Musli. What can we possibly gain from this form of ragging that we practice against Pakistan? It is a bully’s way of asserting himself. They are next door neighbours.”

Describing the love and regard for Indians in Pakistan, Shah said, “The tragedy of the political divide between the two countries is symbolical. It should go. That would never happen until we travel to Pakistan more often and interact with the local people. There is a great deal curiosity and admiration in Pakistan for what India has achieved.”

He futher said,” They love me unconditionally in Pakistan. They are nuts about our stars like Salman and Shah Rukh. But I also sense a reverent affection in Pakistan for actors like me, Om Puri and Farooq Sheikh. I feel very special in Pakistan.”
