Response to the hateful sentiments of Adnan Sami Khan and Abhijeet Bhatacharia

In the recent weeks Indian forces have crossed every limit of violence in the occupied Kashmir. They killed independence movement leader Burhan Vani which ignited the Muslim community of Kashmir and as a result clashes started between the Kashmiris and the Indian Army deployed there.

Indian government allowed soldiers to use pallet bullets against the protesters. This is the worst example of inhuman torture. Pallet bullets made many people blind, including women and children. When Kashmiris saw that no one in the Indian government was worried about this violation of human rights, they attacked Indian Army base camp in Kashmir and killed some soldiers. India once again, without any proof, blamed Pakistan on this. Indian Army later claimed false fully that they conducted surgical strike in Pakistan, which they failed to prove. Pakistani Prime Minister Mr. Nawaz Sharif addressed to the UN General Assembly where he supported Kashmiris and their cause. He condemned Indian forces on using pallet bullets in Kashmir.

In this scenario Indian film industry Bollywood had to announce that no Pakistani artist would be cast in their new projects. Pakistani actors were told to leave India immediately by the terrorist Indian political parties. In the last week we listened to the ugly and hate provoking statements from ex-Pakistani national Adnan Sami Khan, and Indian singer Abhijeet Bhatacharia. Adnan supported Indian army on attacking Pakistan. Abhijeet Bhatacharia also used foul language against the Pakistani artists and said they should have been kicked out of India immediately.

I have been a big fan of many Bollywood artists like Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Hima Malini, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit. I believe that artists have nothing to do with the politics.

adnan-sami

Adnan Sami Khan; I would like to say “Shame on you”. You were introduced to the world through Pakistan Television, where you gave piano performances. Veteran Pakistani film director Syed Noor gave you chance to act as a hero in his classic film Sargam, which got flopped because of your fat body, but he never blamed you for his loss. You moved to India few years back and later got Indian nationality which India offered to you just because they knew that it would hurt Pakistanis. You must remember that Indian armed forces are torturing inhumanly in Kashmir. Did you have courage to speak against the use of pallet bullets in Kashmir??? No! So please just shut up!!!!

abhijeet

Abhijeet Bhatacharia; you are a loser who nobody wants to listen to after listening to the melodious voices of Pakistani artists Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Atif Aslam and Shafqat Amanat Ali. You are jealous with Pakistani talented singers and actors because they are much more popular than you. Shame on you and your ugly thoughts!!!

Paresh Rawal and Ismail Tara – two legends from Indo-Pak entertainment industries

Paresh Rawal

Ismail Tara

In my childhood I used to watch PTV super hit comedy programme ‘Fifty-Fifty’. Ismail Tara was the backbone of this very popular show which kept running for several years. Ismail also performed in some movies under the direction of Syed Noor, Javed Sheikh and Humayun Saeed. Recently I watched Humayun Saeed’s super hit Lollywood flick ‘Main Hoon Shahid Afridi’ (I am Shahid Afridi).  Ismail Tara in this film played role of a cricket club owner. His name in this film was Malik Khalid. Mr. Tara performed the role in such a perfect way that everything seemed to be real. Ismail in this role manages a team comprising of young cricketers from the poor families of Sialkot. This role was very challenging for Ismail being an Urdu speaking person who had to speak Punjabi in Sialkoti dialect in this role. Ismail proved that he can perform any role without any difficulty.

Now I would like to discuss about the Indian legendary actor Paresh Rawal. He is a great film actor from Bollywood. He most of the times has appeared in comic roles, but he has proved his mettle also in the serious roles. I am one of his greatest fans in the world. Paresh acted extraordinarily wonderful in the movies like Baghban and Aankhain. His role of Ilyas, a blind man, in Aankhain brings tears in the eyes. In Baghban he has performed role of a café owner where Amitabh Bachchan (playing as Mr. Raj Malhotra) spends his time while living away from his wife (played by Hima Malini) and writes his book ‘Baghban’. Paresh in the role of Himent Patel gave superb performance. He gave name of ‘Mota Bhai’ to Raj Malhotra and his face expressions, and dialogues with Amitabh were just amazing. He also has given tremendous performance in ‘Hera Pheri’, ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ and ‘Welcome’.

Ismail Tara and Paresh Rawal are the jewels of Urdu and Hindi entertainment industry. I wish both of them a beautiful life.
