Mahira Khan has broken her silence over the ongoing controversy surrounding the demand for a ban on Pakistani artistes in Bollywood after the Uri attack. Earlier other Pakistani artistes like Fawad Khan and Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan have condemned the Uri attack.
In a Facebook post, Mahira wrote,
"In the 5 years that I have been working as an actor I believe that I have tried my best to keep my country's respect intact - by being a professional and by representing Pakistan here and elsewhere to the best of my abilities.
"As a Pakistani and citizen of the world, I strongly condemn any act of terror, any loss of human life no matter which soil it is on! I will not rejoice in bloodshed and war.
I will always hope for and dream of a world where my child can live without it, and always plead with everyone to imagine a peaceful world."
Mahira Khan will make her Bollywood debut with Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees. MNS and other extremist parties have threatened to ban Raees and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
