Pakistani Celebrities React To Veena Malik’s Tweet
On Saturday, the social media reacted strongly to reports of Veena’s alleged anti-India tweet.
After the news went viral, we received a mixed reaction from some members of the Pakistani entertainment industry.
Farhan Saeed, former member of the Pakistani band Jal, told us,
“It’s really sad if she did so, but then what else do we expect from Veena Malik? Anything that keeps her in the news. I think we artistes should be a bridge between the two countries, especially the ones who work on both sides of the border. But coming from Veena, it is surely a publicity stunt.”
Sunny Ghanshyam, lead guitarist of Raeth, remarked,
“What is she all about? No one knew who Veena Malik was before she came to India. It’s only after she got a chance in Bollywood that she got her recognition here in India. She should be grateful and should owe her success to India. I’m sure she got this rishta out of what she is today or else it would have been really difficult for her to travel to the US. Sad how people change over times they need to respect the people and the place.”
Adds Hadiqa Kiani, pop singer and renowned makeup artist,
“It’s not about India or Pakistan . Human beings are the same everywhere. We must think beyond racism.”
