Sajid Khan knows where his loyalties lie when it comes to India.
He too chose to put his country first and support India when it comes to banning Pakistani actors from India in the aftermath of Uri attack.
Speaking at the launch of his chat show, Yaaron Ki Baraat, Sajid when asked about the political call to ban Pakistani actors said, “We have to respect our nation. We are proud Indians and I am with my country. If our country and government thinks they (Pakistani actors) have to go back then they should. India comes first for me.”
But the move was not taken by the government. The sending of Pakistani artistes was the result of MNS agitation, according to a source.
Many Bollywood celebrities who even opposed the ban said they would have whole heartedly agreed if the government has taken the decision.
Indian filmmaker, scriptwriter, talk show host, presenter and actor comes from a film family. Khan has one sister, Farah Khan, who is a choreographer, director, producer and actor by profession. Shirish Kunder, who is a producer, editor and director, is his brother-in-law. Filmmakers Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar are his maternal cousins. His maternal aunts Daisy Irani and Honey Irani are Bollywood actors. – CINEWS
