Bilateral relations between India and Pakistan have always been like a swinging see-saw. Unfortunately, the current scenario is perhaps the lowest point in the relationship. The recent surgical strikes by the Indian Army have certainly increased the hostility.
After politicos threatened Pakistani artists to leave Mumbai, the Indian Motion Pictures Producer’s Association issued a statement which has allegedly decided to protest the presence of Pakistani artists in Bollywood. While public sentiment is divided over these decisions, the nations seem to be isolating each other in matters of diplomacy, politics and arts.
Pakistani artists have formed a deep love with Indian masses, but now, it all might go awry. Actor Fawad Khan who has already found fame in Bollywood might be the worst hit. His upcoming flick 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' might be his lastr. Next in line is singer Atif Aslam, whose concerts in India are already facing cancellations.
Actress Mahira Khan’s career could also be in jeopardy as her debut film opposite Shah Rukh Khan might not be able to see the light of the day. In a major heartbreak for both their fans, the movie might get delayed.
Actor and singer Ali Zafar might be the next majorly hit person as he also has a massive fan following.There is another actor who could be severely disadvantaged because of the tensions. Ali Zafar’s brother, Dalyan Zafar, was also set to make a stunning entry into Bollywood. As talented and good looking as his brother, Dalyan was supposedly being launched by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. While this might be the end of the road for Dalyan, we couldn’t help but appreciate his immaculate sense of style.
