Here's how Mehwish Hayat reacted to Amitabh Bachchan's anti-Pakistan statement
KARACHI - Pakistani famed star Mehwish Hayat has expressed her views over the news of Amitabh Bachchan’s decision to exit a project in which he was to play the character of a Pakistani in a bid to spread the message of peace between the arch-rivals India and Pakistan.

The ties between the nuclear rivals have deteriorated after the Pulwama incident in February which almost brought both neighbors to the brink of war.

As a result of it, India banned Pakistani artists from working in Bollywood and Indian artists were found on the forefront in promoting the nationalist agenda of BJP, cheering war and speaking against peace.

While most of the Pakistani artists remained silent after this news, Mehwish Hayat has responded to the matter on a social networking site.

Taking to Twitter, the Tamghha-e-Imitiaz holder expressed her disapproval on Amitabh Bachchan’s anti-Pakistan sentiments.

‘If true, this is very disappointing. Movies have the power to build bridges especially when tensions are high. I guess that in the end nationalism trumps everything I hope that we can also take heed before we gush about all things Bollywood in the future,’ stated the Load-Wedding movie star.

Here is the tweet by Mehwish Hayat:

Let's go through some of the reactions to Hayat's post:

It seems like Big B had only taken the decision to avoid criticism by his Indian fans and followers and also to stay away from the mess and controversy. Artists all the world should help in promoting peace, love, and friendship. 

We hope you too agree to us on this. Let us know in the comments below.
