Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt’s mother Soni Razdan has showcased her acting prowess in many popular films includingÂ Raazi, Patiala House, andÂ Yours Truly. Currently, she is promoting her forthcoming filmÂ No Fathers in Kashmir, directed by Oscar-nominated Ashvin Kumar. While promoting the film, Soni in an interviewÂ expressed her desire to move to Pakistan.
According to Times Now, she talked about the Kashmir dispute, stating that the region is losing its cultural balance and she does not want India to become a “Hindu nation.” Soni — who has always been vocal about crucial matters — added that whenever she brings such issues to the forefront, she is labelled a “traitor or anti-national” and people suggest that she should move to Pakistan.
In response to her trolls, she said that she’ll be delighted to move to Pakistan.
“Ab jab main aisi baateinÂ karti hoon toh log mujhe deshdrohiÂ kehkarÂ Pakistan bhejna shuru kar deteÂ hain. Kabhi kabhi main sochti hoon ki haan, mujhe Pakistan hi chale jana chahiye, main bohat khush rahungi Pakistan jaakar, wahan khana bhi bohat achha hai. Yahan tohÂ bhagate hainÂ log mujhe, bohat baar mujhe logon ne kahaÂ ki tum Pakistan jaao, lekin meri tarah ki soch rakhne wale bohat zyada log hain, isliye mujhe isse koi zyada fark nahi padta hai ki kaun kya kehta hai.”
(Whenever I talk about such issues, people want me to move to Pakistan. Sometimes I think that yeah, I should, in fact, move to Pakistan, I would be extremely happy there, the food there is extremely delicious. People are always trying to send me away by saying that you should go to Pakistan but, there are many people who think like me which is why I don’t really care about what people have to say.)
When questioned if her comment about moving to Pakistan would result in further trolling on social media she added that she would only go to Pakistan for vacation, eat the delicacies there and return to India.
