Uri attack has brought a wave of rebel among the Indians. Till now, Indians were polite and generous towards Pakistan. Despite the constant terrorist attacks backed by Pakistan, no action was taken to abolish these attacks. From 26/11 Mumbai attack to Uri attack, Pakistan has refused to take responsibility of any terrorist activity that is coming from their country. Innocent Pakistani citizens are also suffering from terrorism, and they are equally against the mayhem caused by terrorism. It’s only the political parties which are creating obstacles and not letting Terrorism and ISI to vanish away.
But Indians have had enough. Everyone is trying their best to boycott anything which is anti-Indian. Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India has decided to not screen any movie which carries a Pakistani artist. Right now, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees are under the knife. Gujarat, Goa, Maharashtra and Karnataka are the four states that come under this association. So, Ae Dil Hai Mushil may not be released in these four states.
The head of the association accepts that such a drastic step will cause financial loss to them. But nation comes first right now. This decision is praised by the general public who is already fed up of infinite terrorist attacks and loss of army officers.
It’s acceptable that Pakistani actors are not involved in attacks, but they didn’t condemn the attacks either. On one hand, producers are hiring Pakistani actors who pay taxes to the government which is ultimately used for funding terrorist groups. On the other hand, we have already lost a lot of our soldiers due to these futile conflicts caused by Pakistan.
Almost every Indian is supporting the decision and everyone is headstrong about not watching any movie with a Pakistani actor. Karan Johar will certainly face huge loss if the movie is banned in these four states as they are one the major markets for Bollywood. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has already created a buzz among the audience through its songs, so there are certainly some people who would like to watch the movie in theatre.
At this point of time, army officers and their lives are our first priority. They are on LOC, guarding us from the next terrorist attack. We just need to support them in whatever way we can. Our government is doing its best to regulate the peace of the nation.
