KARACHI:


Bollywood superstar Juhi Chawla, along with her husband Jai Mehta, is in Karachi to attend a wedding ceremony of her relative.


“There is resemblance between Karachi and Bombay,” one of her relatives quoted her as saying while she took a tour of the city.  Scores of her relatives and fans who were also present at the ceremony Friday night said that Chawla thought that the “culture of both the countries, India and Pakistan, was almost similar to each other”.

“I like to visit Pakistan,” she reportedly told friends.

According to sources, the Bollywood queen of the 90s expressed hope that actors from Pakistan and India would work together, which would further strengthen the film industry.

She said that her current visit to Pakistan was specifically to attend this wedding ceremony and sources revealed that Chawla also took tours of the markets at Tariq Road and went to see Sea View, Clifton. The Bollywood actress is scheduled to leave within next two days.

Meanwhile, Bollywood sensation from the 70s Shatrughan Sinha, who is also in town to attend a wedding ceremony, has said that Pakistan was home to him just like India.

“I like meeting people here,” he was quoted as saying.

The Bollywood actor, during his stay also met with PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain. He told Daily Express that people of both the countries have sympathies for each other.

She is (half) Sindhi. Sindhis are all same, no matter if in Pakistan, India, or United States.

@Alex. Yes hypocrisy of all sorts should be critiqued and spoken against: wherever, whenever. Your statement makes no sense ("responsible for religious affiliations" is also a very awkward sentence idiomatically); also you are presuming I am a Pakistani which shows your own inherent biases. @Raza Yes speaking against injustice and bigotry is the highest form of love, love is not some passive feel good thing; critique and love go hand in hand.
