NDTV: A lot of people feel very strongly about actors who want to work here in Bollywood, and feel there is no need for Pakistani actors to go across.
Fawad: Then they are not fans in the real sense if they feel like that. It’s been going on for 40 years. We are a global village and global citizens but people don’t want to put their money where their mouth is. If you really want to connect and experience cultures first hand, you have to be tolerant enough. I just feel it’s an illogical argument altogether. As artists our work takes us wherever we go.
I think what punctuates this argument is that you cannot please everyone all the time. People who love to hate and have to love will do that all the time. You can’t stop that. They will continue to breed hate.
And you know, I was at a TV show and I had someone ask me ‘18 crore Pakistanis want to ask you how hot is Sonam Kapoor’.
Sonam: Oh come on Fawad.
Fawad: Which is actually a sweet way of appreciating, and they watch these movies. It’s very pleasant to see Hindi films; they have two releases say in a week. We connect more to Bollywood and Hollywood. My wife’s friend said ‘get me Salman Khan’s autograph please otherwise don’t come back’. Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan are huge. All these Khans and Kapoors are so popular.
