Did Fawad Khan say 'Bollywood Kisike Baap Ka Hai Kya?'
In a telephonic conversation this evening, the IMPPA (Indian Motion Pictures Producers' Association) president T P Aggarwal has brought to SpotboyE.com's knowledge that while talking about the MNS controversy, the Kapoor & Sons actor has told someone from a certain section of the media: 'Bollywood kisike baap hai kya?'

If this indeed did happen, one can only say 'Fawad, you said something downright disgusting'.

Naturally, Aggarwal is disgusted.

And who told Aggarwal? Kahan se suna? "Well, I have been told by some people from the industry," he quipped.

MNS Chitrapat Sena president Ameya Khopkar says he too has heard something very shocking about Fawad.

"Look, I have heard that Fawad has told a section of the media in Pakistan that 'Hindustani logon ka dil bahut chhota hai'.

Now, I don't know how much of this is true, but hum logon ko udti udti khabar zaroor aa rahi hai. These Paki artistes say one thing here, and another thing when they go back to Pakistan," said Khopkar.

Aggarwal further said, "Look, it was not my decision only to ban the Pakistani artistes. 200 filmmakers attended the AGM (Annual General Meeting) of IMPPA, and it was a unanimous decision. They were all for it, and in fact the conversation began when many filmmakers praised me for replacing Raahat Fateh Ali Khan in my upcoming film."

Did they discuss Fawad's comments in the meeting, we asked? Replied Aggarwal, "No, we did not. But I must say that I am shocked that Pakistani artistes are not coming forward to condemn the Uri attacks Adnan Sami just sprang up to be the lone exception, (Adnan Sami criticised by his Pakistani fans after he tweets for India, Sept 30).

When contacted, Ashoke Pandit, IMPPA vIce president, said, "On the other hand, after the Peshawar attacks in 2014, several Indian artistes expressed grief. Lekin ab? Kahan hai yeh Pakistani artistes? But God forbid, if something happens in Spain, or even if a building collapses in the US--- they will take to social media to express their grief!"

"And pray, why are the words 'creative', 'talent' being used and misused so frequently? What are these repeated chants of 'art and culture should not be mixed'? Even a housekeeper is an artiste. Every worker is an artiste. Above all, artiste khuda nahin hota hai. Our country has carried out a strategic attack in response to the Uri attack. An undeclared war is going on. These Paki artistes can't condemn the Uri attack even in the name of humanity. Agar aap hamare dukh mein hamare saath nahin ho, toh khushi main kyun?" Pandit demanded to know, his voice now rising.

And then Pandit dropped a bomb. He told SpotboyE.com, "I heard that Fawad has said: 'My country comes first'."

Khopkar returned to say, "That's exactly what I am saying 'My country comes first'," and then added, "I must congratulate Adnan for standing in favour of India."

Added the IMPPA President, "Fawad & Co earn money from India and take it to Pakistan, and they have nothing to say about the Uri attack. Fawad charges Rs 2.5 to 3 crore for a film in India. Where would he get that kind of money?"

However, Aggarwal is meeting MNS Chitrapat Sena president Ameya Khopkar and Shalini Thackeray tomorrow to try and ease the situation on Karan Johar's upcoming film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which stars Fawad Khan. "I will put in efforts to convey to them that ADHM was shot much before our equation with Pakistan reached an all-time low. So let us not throw spanners in films which have Pakistani artistes and are on floors. It is just that they should not be cast in new projects hereafter."

And until when does he plan to impose this rule? Pat came the reply: "Until normalcy is restored and the relations between the two countries become fine."
