Shaan is one of the finest and brilliant actors in Pakistan’s entertainment industry have. He has stood up against neighboring countries whenever they said anything about the nation. He has shown his patriotism on various occasions.
His patriotism some sort of looks extreme whenever it comes to the entertainment side because his main agenda has always been to ban Indian films in Pakistan.
That’s what he brought it up again and grabbed all the attention. With his few tweets saga went on recently where he humbly requested PM Imran Khan to continue ban Indian films from our cinemas.
In which he got some serious responses from the users who criticized his opinion and raised questions on Pakistani content as well.
Shaan Shahid requested PM sahib to ban Indian Films
In his recent tweets, Shaan shared his thoughts with the request to PM Imran Khan to close the cultural borders and strictly continue the ban on Indian cinema.
He wrote, “PM Imran Khan, please protect the cultural borders of Pakistan. No Indian-origin film should be released in Pakistan. India has banned all Pakistani content including singers, artists, films, and music. Respect and equality must be a pivotal part in any trade.”
In his tweet, one of the users raised the point on behalf of cinema owners who are in a great amount of difficulty since the pandemic.
It’s hard for them since Indian cinema has been banned and there’s no new content coming out from the Pakistan industry that people are interested to come.
Shaan replied, “Then let’s import other stuff as well that we don’t find in Pakistan. That’s not how countries and nations are built. We must support and make our products world-class and that cannot happen unless we have patriotic investors.”
He added further in a separate reply, “A cinema is a retail outlet. They should be the first ones to invest in the infrastructure of films so [their] supply [doesn’t] dry out. It’s like opening a restaurant without a kitchen.”
Shaan has been seen defaming Indian Cinema whenever he gets the opportunity, just like he encouraged Fahad Mustafa to stay where he is and just work on it.
Don’t be afraid of competition – Twitter user
Another user picked up the main point on Pakistan’s content. He wrote, “Don’t be afraid of your competition! Improve your content first. Except for Pakistan, [the] entire Muslim world is showing Indian films.
The 70s, 80s, and 90s PTV set an example of how they beat Doordarshan at that time only due to their superior content.” Stating “respect” as his primary cause of concern in the matter, the actor asserted, “We are not afraid of the competition, they are.
That’s why they have banned our artists and content. My point is respect and patriotism.”
Shaan replied, “We are not afraid of the competition they are.. that’s why they have banned our artists and content.. my point is respect and patriotism”.
Although one user agreed with Shaan, “In the times when the world is already full of hate and barriers, let’s talk about bridging the gaps and taking the barriers down.
Let’s strive to make them reciprocate with love in the form of shared arts both (love and arts) of which know no bounds.” In response, the actor simply stated, “In an ideal world, sure. But, in reality, not possible.”
Shaan concluded with the last tweet, “In an ideal world sure, but not in reality”.
