Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor — who is currently on a promotional spree for his upcoming release Mulk which also stars Taapsee Pannu and Prateik Babbar — has yet again spoken up in favour of cordial relations between India and Pakistan.
His upcoming film is a court drama in which a Muslim family fights for its honour after being dragged into a controversy as their son, played by Prateik Babbar is a terrorist.
Speaking on the matter, Rishi shared his views regarding the importance of brotherhood in the country. He said, “Brotherhood is enough to end the communal violence in India.”
He further went on to question, “If North Korea and America can solve their dispute, then why can’t India and Pakistan.”
This isn’t the first time Rishi has shared his views on the ongoing tension between the two neighbouring countries. “This fight has to end some day,” he had said in an earlier interview with Arnab Goswami, referring to relations between India and Pakistan as a ‘jhagra‘, a term used when two friends squabble. Goswami tried to grill him on using the term but Rishi Kapoor, who can be just as loud if not more, didn’t falter.
“I love this country but how many widows and orphans do you want to see,” he said. “People are dying here and people are dying there (in Pakistan).”
It does appear that the actor is tired of the long feud between the two countries and is in favour of peace once and for all. What do you think?
