Rising tensions between India and Pakistan in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Uri and Indian army’s surgical strike have already created a lot of problems for artists from across the border, as several political parties tried to gain mileage at their expense and producers were bullied into paying for shooting with Pakistani actors.
As the patriotic fervour seems to have taken a toll on cinema in the country, a comedian seems to have a very valid reason for hating Fawad Khan and even the ‘Blue Eyed Chaiwalla’ from Pakistan, and its spot on.
In a hilarious rant, Daniel Fernandes says that being an Indian, it’s a default mode to hate anything Pakistani since it’s the only option people in both countries have. Taking a jibe at political parties and their demand for filmmakers to pay money as compensation for hiring Pakistani actors, he said he can’t afford to like Fawad Khan since he doesn’t have Rs five crore.
He said how he hated the chaiwalla for being so good-looking and having blue eyes, and marked how chaiwallas are becoming super models and head of states in the two countries.
