PM Narendra Modi and his government recently revoked Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir, as a result of which the Pakistan government ended up banning Indian movies amongst other actions taken as retaliation. Recently, singer Mika Singh too was spotted performing at Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf’s relative’s wedding. Looks like Richa Chadha has an altogether different take on it all. Read on.
Today, at the trailer launch of her upcoming movie, Section 375, Richa addressed several on-going issues, one of it being our neighbouring country’s move to ban Indian movies. Upon being asked about her stand and if Indian artistes should perform there, she said, “I have a very different point of view. I feel artistes talk about love and peace. We (Pakistan and India) have a common culture, and I feel people ban artistes because artistes can mend relations between the two states. (laughing) In order to end the conflict, we have to see the other side as human, so the first victim of conflict is usually art and humanity be it cricket or songs. I think citizens from both the sides want peace. It’s always anti-social people, terrorists, evil minded people who create this chaos. So I don’t have a stand on this.. it’s just situations and things will change overtime.”
“Ye toh politics hai, iske upar kya,” added her Section 375 co-star Akshaye Khanna.
Well, Richa has put forward her views, but what do y’all think about it?
