Actor Yasir Hussain took to Instagram to share his opinion on the situation in the battered region of Indian occupied Kashmir. In a video, he expressed his disappointment over how Pakistani celebrities who have worked in Bollywood are trying to secure their Indian fan base despite the turmoil caused by the Indian government.

“Sami Khan and I have worked in an Indian film starring Om Puri which was a joint venture between both the countries. No doubt our stay there was good and whenever we interacted with the people there, they used to ask us that have you met Fawad Khan which gave us enough proof that there is a huge fan following of Pakistani artists in India,” he said.

“Despite such a great fan following, they kicked Pakistani celebrities out whenever they want to. They removed Atif Aslam’s songs from their websites, even though no one in South Asia has a soulful voice as him,” Hussain continued saying in the video.

“I do not think artists should even think about their Indian fan base at this crucial moment because they belong to Pakistan and became famous here first. It was their work in Pakistan that led to projects in India,” the Kiya Life Hai actor added.

“So, losing your fan base does not really matter. What matters is that Kashmiri brothers and sisters should not be killed. That is the most important thing at the moment,” the Shadi Mubarak Ho actor said.

Hussain concluded the video message saying that he will continue to talk about Kashmir and Pakistan till his last breath.
