Why is Bollywood obsessed with Pakistan, does it know there is something called North-East in India?

Bollywood has been accused of being copycats. It has lived with the ignominy of practising hypocrisy -- 'all show off, no substance' jibes.

But now that Karan’s film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is stuck because of the presence of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in it, he can not afford to speak against Fawad.

Bollywood has been accused of being home to copycats. It has lived with the ignominy of practising hypocrisy — ‘all show off, no substance’ jibes. But still, when it came to showing off their patriotism, Bollywood rarely left an opportunity to cash on the Tricolour or the National Anthem.

However, all of Bollywood’s so-called patriotism is under scrutiny these days. Bollywood is divided like never before, and that too on the matter concerning the country.

While there are some in favour of banning Pakistani artistes from working in the Indian film industry as long as there are tensions with the neighbouring country, some like Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar wonder why is it necessary.

In some other time, the duo may have supported the ban on Pakistani actors or chosen not to speak. But now that Karan’s film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is stuck because of the presence of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in it, he can not afford to speak against Fawad.

It is business first always in the Bollywood, especially for someone like Karan who can’t claim to have ever created something worthwhile, and yet he is so ‘successful’. Anurag is simply standing up for his new found friend in Karan as his own fortunes are on the decline.

True that there shouldn’t be a ban on the movement of artistes as they are just there to entertain people. But in times when entertainment has become a mammoth industry, and the country is facing a war-like situation vis-a-vis Pakistan, the hypocrisy of Bollywood should be examined and exposed.

I wonder why Bollywood is so much obsessed with Pakistan or Pakistani actors. The reason may be that some of the legendary Bollywood personalities came from Pakistan after the partition in 1947.

However, at present, no country can afford to have mutual relations if it is fighting a war, especially if it is more a diplomatic war than an all-out battle on the border.

Bollywood has produced several films themed on India-Pakistan tensions and made several Pakistanis superstars. But when it comes to India, Bollywood doesn’t have much to show about all parts of the country.

Have you ever heard of Bollywood making films on home to India’s most beautiful states and people — the states in the North East (with a notable exception being Mary Kom), or even the more prosperous states in the south. Have you ever heard of North-East themed films or of any actor from North East making it big, or getting opportunities in a big cinema, made by the likes of Karan himself in the Bollywood.

Bollywood sells a dream that is more than often boring, because of lack of creativity and vision.

Ironic it is that a mediocre industry is divided on an ‘enemy’ called Pakistan, but may just get united again when it comes to other unexplored parts of India, like the North East.

      Mr. Jingoistic patriot, when will India stop eating and using salt, sugar, cotton, leather, petrol, sports goods and much more of stan? Who no patriot is willing to remove or is getting hurt from “ most favored nation le” given to stan? Why stanis’ diplomat, students, industry workers still sits in India and vice versa? Why no treaties were called off? Your jingoistic patriotism is well planned, ic and below the belt. India is not going to break its legal, economic and political ties with stan so in the absence of these strategies your government run mobs are trying to cool off their hormones by targeting the very UNISLAMIC and very UNTALIABNIC nachany, ganaay thumka lagaanay walay stanis. Shame on y ou. This all patriotism pleas are nothing but a strategy to win elections cuz common man doesn’t know anything about economic, legal and political ties with stan. BTW, not few but almost all of Bollywood DNA hails from regions now known as stan. All Kapoors, All Khans, All kumars, All Khannaz, Yash chopras, Jash Johar and many more. They have nothing in common with Mumbaikars but are living there cuz of Parion tragedy. Bollywood might be stupid but its super successful and the reason behind is nothing else but Persian/Pashtun/Aryan looks of Bollywood actors. You are going to need another round of stani DNA. Let Bollywood decide how they want to conduct their business. If you have a problem with them please switch to South and North East cinema.
