I would definitely prefer to take somebody from my country for my movies, said the Happy New Year director
Farah Khan doesn’t know what the big fuss about Pakistani actors is.
At a recent event in New Delhi, the Happy New Year director was asked her take on the ban on Pakistani artists and her point of view was clear.
“I think from now on, if you are saying we should not work with them, I say we have enough talent in our country and we should work with people from our country,” Farah said.
“What do we don’t have that they have? I think we are far better. So, we would work with our people. I would definitely prefer to take somebody from my country for my movies.”
However, coming to her Bollywood buds Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan’s rescue, she said that the ban should not extend to films that have completed production.
“I think there are a handful people, not even handful but may be two people we are talking about. They are not important in the scheme of things. When they did those movies, it wasn’t illegal to have Pakistani actors working in Indian movies. The movies were shot at considerable expense and hard work, I don’t think it is fair to ban those movies.”
