Dear Fawad Khan. It’s time. Go back to Pakistan.

Dear Fawad Khan,

At the outset, let me clarify that I am not singling you out. I am merely addressing this letter to you because you are the most famous Pakistani import to Bollywood.

By addressing you, I want to talk to every Pakistani import to Bollywood. This letter could have well been addressed to Adnan Sami, Raahat Fateh Ali Khan, Mahira Khan… the list is endless and keeps increasing every year.

Fawad, I don’t think you can deny how much love we have showered on you over the past few years. We have given you more money in two years than what you could have possibly earned in Pakistan in 10 years. We have given you recognition that you would have never been able to earn sitting in Karachi. We made you act in great movies, we helped you endorse brands. And hey, we also made you a bigger star in Pakistan.

Though you are a supporting male lead in Bollywood movies, you are now a mega superstar in Pakistan.

We are proud of what we have done for you. We know that you have acknowledged it numerous times. You have spoken with gratefulness about the love and hospitality that we have shown to you. Though you keep mum about the money, you have earned here, we know that you are grateful to India for showering you with wealth too. Thank you for acknowledging that.

You are welcome.

fawad khan

I don’t know about others, I used to be very vocal about the fact that culture knows no boundaries and that there should be free exchange of artistes between India and Pakistan. Me and few of my friends supported and patronised the fact that India and Pakistan should collaborate for projects, specially when it comes to cinema. We recognise that cinema is one of the strongest forms of dialogue that can go a long way in forming public opinion across borders which will facilitate the peace process between the neighbours.

Not anymore.

Dear Fawad, whatever we have mentioned earlier is being done by us. India. Your country is doing just the opposite. We talk about dialogues but this is just becoming a monologue of peace from India.

We give you so much love and money, but your country continues to ban our cinema and our artistes.

We drool over you and give you some of our best projects. Your country dreams of creating a Bollywood on their own. We are thinking of collaboration while your country talks of division and isolation.

Our country knows that your country’s television serials are far better than us (in quality that is, we always had more money though) but your country’s government have prevented us from working with you there too.

Your country is mad about Bollywood movies but end up supporting piracy because most of the Bollywood movies are illegally downloaded in Pakistan. Bollywood movie piracy has only grown in Pakistan over the years.

All this never really mattered to us in the past. As I said earlier, we were only concerned about a free and fair cultural exchange no matter what is happening at our borders or how violence is being incited in Kashmir by your government backed Jihadi groups.

The water is flowing over our heads now, Fawad.

We have watched in pain how you have chosen to look away when your country is inflicting pain on us. We are letting you laugh all the way to your bank account in Karachi while our soldiers are bleeding in Uri, Kashmir.

You have chosen to keep quiet about us, our suffering and our death in the hands of your Mujahideen army. While we have given you only love, you have given us silence and that cute, dimpled smile of yours.

Sorry Fawad, cultural exchanges cannot happen over dead bodies of our soldiers. We cannot shake hands with your country when their hands are covered in blood of our own countrymen.

We know that you have a lot of support from Indians who would pamper you in isolation. We don’t blame them as they have invested money on you and wouldn’t want to lose it.

Fawad, you lack courage. You lack conviction. You lack the guts to stand up against the Jihadists of your country who think they are serving God by killing us.

Finish what you are doing Fawad and then do us a favour by going back to Pakistan. You see, what you have earned here is enough to last a lifetime. Go when the time is good and don’t wait for people to boycott you. Don’t wait for movies to crash at the box office because you are there in it.

Let’s part as friends, Fawad.  It doesn’t matter if you have failed to respond to the favours we have done to you and your colleagues from Pakistan.

We wish you all the best and pray that someday you will have the courage to rise above boundaries and speak for what is right. We wish that someday you will stand with us because you earned your bread on our soil.

Take care and let us know when you are getting your air tickets to Karachi done. We plan to give you a grand farewell.

With deep regards,

Your ardent Indian fan.

  2. So your brilliant idea to end India-Pakistan enmity is to make Fawad Khan speak for India in Pakistan?
    But if that is true, then this logic should work the other way around as well, righy? Recently an Indian actress/MP was dragged to court for saying that Pakistan is not hell, and that she was treated very nicely by the people of Pakistan. Other personalities have also been branded as anti-nationals for talking in favour of Pakistan (and god forbid, if they are muslims, they are even asked to go to Pakistan). So what do you think will happen if Fawad talks in favour of India, in a nation which is known to be rouge and where artists are randomly killed and targeted? Most probably he will not live to see another day. Not long back, Shahid Afridi was targeted for praising the Indian hospitality. We have to understand that he is just an artist who is trying to make the most of the opportunities he is getting (just like Priyanka Chopra). We won’t gain anything by specifically targeting an individual, he is not a terrorist and I am pretty confident that he doesn’t even support terrorism. Most likely the average Pakistani doesn’t support terrorism either, infact the monster created by their government bites them the hardest. Snapping all ties with them will only alienate them. I don’t know what the solution to this problem is, but spewing hatred against Fawad or any Pakistani artist is definitely not going to help.

    Well debate

    Fawad khan did not beg any Indians producer to cast him in the movies, They approached him because he get guts and good acting and Indians are getting more profits by casting him in movies and it is purely commercial, and makes senses

    2ndly, every person on this earth needs to understand that you cannot blame Pakistan for every terrorists attack in India, you need to dig deeper and instead of blame game, collect the proof and show to the world that Pakistan is doing this, and without proof, kindly shut this bullshit that Pakistan is doing it, only blame game is easy but to proof, you need to train your intelligence
    agencies and made them capable to find the real traitor inside you,

    You didn’t look inside yourself, you are beating Muslims and Sikhs as well, they are not happy in living India, firing in Kashmiri innocent people and then blame others for terrorists attack, what happened in Uri is a reaction from Kashmiri people not from any other people,

    Fawad did not do any terrorist attach neither he support any of this so leave him out of dirty politics, and make a blog in which you can vote and ask all Indian people if they want Fawad in movies or not and if decision comes in your favor, go to your Govt and ask him not to issue a Visa to Fawad and he will not come to your country, A hero remains hero anyways whatever you say
    and there are not boundaries of Art, he can work anywhere in the world, Fawad was getting paid because Indian producers are earning much more because of him. He did not beg for the movies so Don’t ever dare to blame anybody, first investigate and then give proof and then say anything,

    Why you cannot see that your bloody soldiers are attacking on innocent children and when they attach back for a revenge, you
    are shocked and now crying why they did that?

  16. Dear Bollywood Journalist;

    Let me thank you first for the letter you have written and the chance you have given us to speak our hearts out. Lets begin with your point of saying that India promotes cultural diffusion. If it had been so, I would never had the fortune to come across your letter. If India has graciously showered love over Fawad Khan; then that is due to the fact that he has earned it along with any other Pakistani star. If you have given him the awards, than he has given you enough of his looks and acting, that no other of your actor would have been able to offer with such perfection.

    If you blame Fawad for distancing himself from the statements related to Jihadists and Uri attack, than I must say that you have forgotten India’s contribution to Kashmir terrorism. As a writer and a journalist, I feel pity for your stance and opinion. It makes me sad to think how someone could spew so much hatred. Please do not suggest Fawad the courage to speak up, when you are using your journalistic rights so against the integrity.

    In the end as a writer I would say that, while, you have great literary skills “You lack courage. You lack conviction. You lack the guts to stand up” for what is right. Please note it down for your next article that if you, in the future, dare to stand against the Pakistani celebrities or anyone; you will get an even worst response.

    Thank you!

  21. As a Pakistani, allow me to address your accusations:

    1, You’re accusing Fawad Khan of not speaking up against Jihadis. How many of your celebrities have spoken against Indian army atrocities in Kashmir? I didn’t see the Khans, Kapoors, Bachchans, Chopras, Bhatts or any other big names speak up against the use of pellets. If you’re of the view that Kashmiris deserved what they got because all of them are terrorists, then the Indian army officers also got what they deserved. Tit-for-tat diplomacy rarely works.

    2, Even before making his debut in India, Fawad Khan was a household name in Pakistan. He was one of the highest paid television actors among other big names, such as Humayun Saeed, Ayesha Khan, Mahira Khan, Sanam Saeed and Saba Qamar.

    3, Pakistan has graciously allowed Indian actors to work in Pakistani productions. Be it Naseeruddin Shah in Khuda Ke Liye, Om Puri in Actor In-Law, Kirron Kher and Shilpa Shukla in Khamosh Pani and Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt to work in stage plays. Indian television actresses Sarah Khan and Swara Bhaskar are also being roped in for Pakistani television serials. Yes, we don’t hire A-list Bollywood celebrities because our film industry cannot afford them. Our films are made on considerably low budget, sometimes even lower than what your top-notch celebrities would demand as their fees. That’s only because our film industry is still an infant compared to Bollywood.

    4, Pakistan violates copyright laws. Agreed. Not only Bollywood, but even Hollywood movie DVDs are pirated here. But doesn’t that happen in India too? Don’t you people illegally download movies and seasons from torrents? That being said, Bollywood movies are regularly screened at all cinemas and multiplexes across Pakistan. Only films with sensitive or derogatory content are banned. I’ve watched Sultan and Dil Dhadakne Do at a leading multiplex in Karachi. Bajrangi Bhaijaan did amazing business from ticket sales in Pakistan. Hyper-nationalist garbage, such as Phantom, gets banned. Do you really want us to watch movies that don’t even fare well in Indian cinemas?

    5, You talk about Pakistan banning Indian films. How many Pakistani films have released in India? Moor, Manto, Mehlaab, Maalik, Dukhtar and Seedlings are some of the most critically acclaimed movies of Pakistan. Which Indian cinema showcased them? Bachaana, Namaloom Afraad, Actor in-Law, Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai, Janaan and Bin Roye are some of the many romantic comedies we have released over the past two years. Which of these made it to the big screen in India? Movies like Waar were even praised by Ram Gopal Verma, but were never showed in India.

    6, Do you really think it’s a celebrity’s job to talk on political issues? If yes, then are you tolerant enough to accept and appreciate their views? Because the last time Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan spoke of intolerance in India, you people lost your marbles completely. How do you expect any celebrity to speak on any current issue if this is how you react?

    You lost your soldiers to a terrorist attack and you’re upset. I get it. You want Pakistanis out of India because your local talent is ignored? Valid point. You want to act like singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya on social media? Fine with me. But stop taking your frustration out on decent, non-political folks. Because if you do, then we have every right to hold artists like Mahesh Bhatt, Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah responsible for killings in Kashmir and RAW-funded insurgency in Baluchistan.

If you just care to take some time out from gushing over imported hunks in your over glorified Bollywood flicks and press the buttons on your laptop or cell phone after typing the words ‘Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir’ in the search section, you’ll realize that the ‘innocent’ soldiers you happen to be weeping and mourning for were after all no kindergarten children. They were cold blooded killers and gang rapists in uniforms, on a ruthless rampage to crush a freedom movement in a valley wrongfully occupied by your ‘democratic’ nation. No wonder Israel is a bosom buddy. Maybe the blood curdling images of bullet ridden faces of women and children would jolt you out of your ‘Bollywood arrogance’ and make you realise what’s really happening around you. And I’m not even bringing up the RAW backed horrific massacre of children in uniforms at the APS Peshawar yet.

Also he complained about the banned movies in Pakistan, every year hundreds of Indian movies are being released at our cinemas, name me One pakistani movie that was released at your cinema’s. We gave million of dollers of business to your movies. And the amount is far more greater than what you have spent on our artists. And if you make these propaganda movies against us don’t expect them to be in our cinemas Offcourse. And when it comes to terrorism, your terrorist has killed more than 100,000 Pakistanies , don’t expect flowers in return. Yes Fawad should come back because your government has for sure lost their mind. Peace can only be promoted by love from both sides. So rather than these stupid letters to artists let’s start writing to our army and intelligence agencies to stop screwing each other. May the peace Prevail forever.

  31. This author is clearly as racist as the Jihadist. He is openly inciting hatred on the basis of his country, right he claims he got by being born on few cms of land. Its hilarious when these kind of idiots promote peace and deeply demeaning to other educated hindus.

  32. Not at All Dear Ms Bannerjee,

    I would not cover my words up with a layer of lies when I know I dont mean good or even loke you as a person as such (after reading your article) first of all Fawad wouldnt even give a rat’s ass to what you’ve said. Moreover, he is already a siperstsr in Pakistan, nit because of your movies sorry to say. He has earned it himself eithout your help, so much so that he became so famous that Indian Directors had to offer him roles. So please get your facts right first. Secondly, the Jihadis are not going to liaten to Fawad Khan and he doesnt have to take their sid eor go against them. He’s not a damn polotician for God’s sake ! You sound so SILLY. And about us Pakistanis liking Indian movies, well I reside in London and I consider Indian movies the only connectiin to my family back in Pakistan, as we have fond memories of watching so many together. Well we love the movies and we love the stars. Amd to us it doesnt matter if tehy are I doans or Pakistanis. What matters is that yhey are talented and have earned a place in their hearts. As for the fact that you want Fawad to leave India, too bad. He was not waiting for your permission or even your opinion on that. Lol. You have made a joke of yourself writing this article. It is so stupid . A child would have a bigger heart and more sense than you trust me. You need to calm down . Get a hold on your thoughts. Maybe you had nothing better to do than writing thia letter. And Im aure tou wont gwt much publicity because of it, because im sure many people would think you sound like a silly jealous prick who had notbing better to write about than Fawad Khan. Let the man be please. He doesnt need your advice 😉

  33. Dear Indian,

    Fawad khan was already a superstar in Pakistan, when Bollywood put those projects on his feet. Your girls even gays were drooling over him across the border .. He, despite of political differences, gave your big screen a chance and looks like Bollywood is still not done with him.. It also looks like your best heroines want a chance with him.. Looks like he makes your flop projects a big hit..
    As far as Kashmir issue goes, he’s an actor .. Not a freedom fighter ..
    Actors being banned in Pakistan.. Om Puri and Naseer uddin shah are two big names who made multiple visits and played roles in our films.. Maybe others are just not good enough ..

    Darling, you need to do your homework before calling yourself a fan .. Yet you worry about your Indian Rupee given away for extreme hard work to a Pakistani..

    You clearly cannot end a war based on the so called facts you just published in your news paper..

    Live.. and let live!

    Best regards

    A Pakistani

  34. Why do people always look to target artists when something comes up between the two countries?
    It’s really sad to know that people with so much hate and ignorance exist. Fawad Khan or for that matter any artist should not be held responsible for the actions of brainwashed jihadis. The contribution Pakistani artists have made to the Bollywood industry is worth appreciation and respect.

    And to the writer of this article,posts like these spew hatred amongst people living in both the countries. So,if you’re thinking you’re helping,trust me you’re not. You’re just making the situation worse.
