“Indian artistes get ‘special care’ in Pakistan” – Vinay Pathak

Renowned Indian actor Vinay Pathak, who visited Pakistan earlier this year for the Pakistan International Film Festival, says Indian artistes are welcomed with love and warmth in Pakistan. 

Speaking about his experience of attending the one of its kind festival, Vinay told IANS,

“I think Pakistan is the only country where we are treated with special care because we are Indian. No other country in the world will treat us with so much love and warmth because you are an Indian.

“The hatred that we see in the mainstream media or social media is nothing to do with common people. I think people to people friendship can never be stopped and should not be stopped for any reason.”

“I went to attend a premiere of a Pakistani film and saw a huge poster of ‘Raid’ (Ajay Devgn-starrer Indian film) over there. The organisers were saying that there is a market of Indian film in Pakistan because people love watching our films. They try to release our films almost simultaneously.

Vinay will also soon be featured in the much awaited family drama titled Khajoor Pe Akte, releasing on Friday.
