‘Soldier fighting on border doesn’t care which film is being released’
New Delhi, Dec 6 (IANS) Actress Anushka Sharma, whose film “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” was embroiled in controversy as it starred Pakistani actor Fawad Khan when relations between India and Pakistan nose-dived, termed the issue “insignificant “as a “soldier fighting on the border doesn’t care which film is being released or not”.
Present at the ‘Agenda Aaj Tak’ on Tuesday, Anushka, whose father is in the army, said that she had experienced this at home. “I know what a soldier’s family feels. I have seen the tension at home and have felt it.
“My father was in infantry. Today when ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ problem happened on Fawad Khan… At that time I understood the sentiment but the person who is fighting on the border doesn’t care which film is being released or not. It is insignificant.”
The actress feels that it was a very negligible issue at the time when soldiers were losing their lives on the border.
“Looking at their position this was a very negligible topic, negligible issue… not at all important as to what those people on the border going through. What was and is happening on the border is the real deal.
“The release of the film or not releasing of the film does not make any difference,” Anushka added.
Ttalking “just for the heck of it” is wrong.
“Talking about something just for the heck of it just because you want to tell your opinion or say something… There’s no need. The person fighting on the border doesn’t care if the film is being released or not,” she said.
