As of late, Pakistani performer Fawad Khan, who has worked both in Bollywood and Pakistan film industry, was requested that by a writer remark on how there is a social disagreement amongst India and Pakistan and the way Bollywood has received westernization while showcasing sentiment or kissing scenes on screen. Be that as it may, before Fawad could answer the inquiry, on-screen character Richa Chadha chose to do it for the performer's benefit. The two were tending to the media at a question and answer session held at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. Fawad Khan, who was most recently seen in Shakun Batra's Kapoor and Sons, was given a unique assorted qualities honor by the state extraordinary priest Gavin Jennings.Here’s the complete transcript of the conversation.
Journalist: My question is to Mr. Fawad Khan. You’re representing a country and culture which much different from your own.
Someone interrupts to say: I don’t understand the question. How is the culture contradicting?
Journalist continues her questions: In all senses, especially Bollywood, may be the onscreen romance or the kissing scenes or the cultures we have or the way India has adopted westernisation. Because I have a lot of Pakistani friends and when I speak to them, I get the sense that the two countries are different and Pakistan is a lot different from India.
Richa: I would like to answer that. Sorry, I am cutting in. You know we were colonised by the British for a really long time. It’s a part of the… I am sorry if I am offending anybody here, but if you look at worldwide history every time the British left an empire they divided it. Whether it was North Korea or South Korea then there was Germany. It is a part of the strategy to keep political unrest to sort off maintain a global kind of , I am sorry but your question to me doesn’t make sense because I will have far more in common with Fawad because I am from the North of India than I will have with somebody who is a Tambrahm or maybe a Malyali or from the North East. I think we should avoid stereotyping in questions or creating some kind of contradiction here because the whole intent and especially art does really have any borders.
