Since the decision to ban Ae Dil Hai Mushil has come forward, the citizens of India have divided into two groups. One group wants to boycott anything and everything that has any Pakistani celebrity in it. While the other group is secular and wants to maintain the ties with the Pakistani celebrities.
We, on the other hand, support Karan Johar’s plea for Ae Dil Hair Mushkil. It takes a lot of time and efforts to make a movie. The amount of money invested in production is huge. It’s unfortunate that by such bans, the producers will have to suffer huge losses.
Moreover, Ae Dil Hai Mushil is much more than Fawad Khan. It is not about just a Pakistani actor, but many of our Indian actors are working in it. Our very own Ranbir Kapoor is playing the main lead in it. Anushka Sharma has worked hard to bring the character alive on screen. And it is after a long time that we will finally see Aishwarya Rai romancing on screen. Is it really worth to not watch their hardwork just because a Pakistani actor is working in it?
The relationship between Pakistan and India has always been stressed. Due to the continuous terrorism supported by Pakistani government, India has to suffer a lot. But does it mean that every ordinary Pakistani citizen is a terrorist? Of course not. Moreover, Pakistani celebrities have been working in India since the dawn of time. They have offered entertainment and talent to India. We don’t think it is the right decision to ban the Pakistani celebrities from showcasing their talent and art in India.
There are numerous ways through which we can fight against Pakistan, but it should not be at the cost of disrupting ordinary citizens’ lives. If they want to watch a movie, they should be allowed to do so. If arts and culture is to be exchanged between the borders, no amount of coercion should be able to stop that. We are living in a democratic country which boasts of its diversity. It also involves being tolerant of other countries and their artists. Unnecessary threats should not be made because it can taint the reputation of India.
We hope that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will get released and earn a lot of money. It will only show how big-hearted Indians are.
