He was talking in a tree plantation event at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (SKMCH) and Research Centre, Peshawar. “I have not ever faced any issues working in India. The groups that work against Pakistan needs to be discounted because there are similar groups present in Pakistan too.
The Shiv Sena has in recent weeks targeted Pakistani artists and has said they will not allow artists from Pakistan to work in India. The party forced Ghazal singer Ghulam Ali that was popular to cancel his concerts in various parts of India last month.
Shiv Sena group has additionally said it would not allow Fawad and Mahira Khan to promote their forthcoming films in Maharashtra. Fawad has completed shooting for Kapoor and Sons where he’s worked with Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Rishi Kapoor. Mahira will probably be making her much anticipated Bollywood debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Raees.
Fawad khan, who made excellent progress with his first Bollywood movie Khubsoorat said he would love to encourage Shah Rukh Khan to visit Peshawar, “Peshawar is very lovely and peaceful, and I will encourage Shahrukh Khan to visit his native city”.
