Saif Ali Khan is one of those few Muslims of Paris, Dubai, Mumbai, Toronto, London, Istanbul, and New York, who are against their own fellows.
For a couple of times, he aired his frustrations about being banned in Pakistan. Previously, his movie Bollywood film, Phantom, was not allowed to be released in countries like America, Canada, Pakistan, and Thailand.
The reason for the film’s ban was its useless content which is against the religious and moral values of communities. The story of the movie revolves around the Mumbai attacks at the Taj Hotel; according to this film Muslims of Pakistan, London, Dubai, New York, Toronto, Paris, and Istanbul, are responsible for world’s terrorist attacks.
This is the reason, Saif Ali Khan was criticized heavily, and fortunately his movie could not do any prominent business on box-office.
This led Saif to get angry, and he started commenting negatively about Pakistan through his social media profiles. His frustrated words were replied harshly by Pakistani stars like Hamza Ali Abbasi, Shan, and others.
From then onward, Saif Ali, the Indian actor, often talks about the neighboring country that he is not happy with the decision of the government of Pakistan, but it is alright since he cannot do anything in this regard.
Not only Phantom but also a couple of other B-Town movies of Saif have been dragged into court. This Muslim male celebrity seems to have lost his senses.
Now and then, India tries to do propagandas against Pakistan, and its dream is to hurt the image of this Muslim country. In an interview, the actor tried to convince the fans of New York, Toronto, Paris, Dubai, London, Mumbai, and Istanbul, that he gives utmost respect and value to the fellow Muslims but that doesn’t mean anyone is free to say anything about his repute.
On the other hand, Pakistani TV artists have clarified that Saif do have problems with Pakistan, and that’s why the ban on his movies should be for a lifetime.
Both Pakistan and India have long shared the complicated relationship. Whether it is the matter of Kashmir issue or the release of movies across the border, both countries increase the number of problems for each other.
Saif believes that banning of the movies is not a way since every filmmaker and actor has full freedom to tell uncomfortable truths so that the viewers can understand the current problems of the societies.
Born as Sajid Ali Khan, in August 1970, Saif established his career after spending much part of his life in Indian film industry. He received multiple awards including one National Film Award and six Filmfare Awards.
Recently the Muslims belonging to India demanded the government to take Saif’s Padma Shri award back, which was given to him in 2010 honoring his contributions to the showbiz world.
The son of Mansoor Ali Khan and Sharmila Tagore, and the husband of Kareena Kapoor, Saif has lost his position. Nowadays, he is not receiving the offers of any Bollywood movies, which is why he has founded his own production house.
He began acting career in 1992 with Yash Chopra’s Parampara. Some of his remarkable movies are Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Yeh Dillagi, Dil Chahta Hai, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Hum Tum, Salaam Namaste, Race, Parineeta, Being Cyrus, Omkara, and Love Aaj Kal.
Besides being an actor, Khan is a stage performer. Firstly, he married to actress Amrita Singh and remained with her for more than a decade. With Amrita, he has two kids. Kareena came to his life a couple of years ago and the two fell in love. Later on, they tied the knot in 2012 and are happily married.
Ali Khan’s Bollywood career as an actor has almost ended since the fans of New York, Mumbai, Toronto, Istanbul, Paris, London, and Dubai, don’t want to see him in the movies due to the so many controversies. It is better that the New Delhi-born Saif should now get official retirement because he has damaged his repute himself.
