Mehwish Hayat calls out Shah Rukh Khan for producing anti-Pakistan Netflix series
KARACHI: Top actress Mehwish Hayat has slammed Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan for negative portrayal of Pakistan in an upcoming Netflix series produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.
Her remarks came a day after Shah Rukh Khan dropped the first trailer of Brad of Blood on Twitter. According to Mr Khan, the story is about espionage, vengeance, love and duty.
The Netflix series, however, appears to show Pakistan in a negative light.
Bard of Blood stars Emraan Hashmi whp plays a R&AW agent who journeys to Balochistan to eliminate terrorists in Pakistan.
“This just vindicates what I have been saying for so long. Another week & yet another anti-Pakistan project. Now can we wake up, smell the coffee & see Bollywood’s agenda for what it is? @iamsrk Be patriotic, nobody is stopping you – just don’t do it at the expense of vilifying us,” Mehwish Hayat tweeted.
Pakistani actress Mansha Pasha lashed out at the movie and called on India to find better storylines.
“Can india find some storylines that dont show Pakistan in their “rescue missions”. How about some rescue missions for Kashmiris in kashmir? #KashmirStillUnderCurfew”
