It is no secret that superstar Shaan Shahid is quite patriotic and he has clearly expressed his love for the country and our artists on many occasions. Hence, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the actor wasn’t too delighter to find out that the government has made a decision to reserve PKR 50 million for restoration of historical sites in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), including the ancestral homes of Bollywood icons Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar.
Soon after the decision, the actor took to Twitter and expressed his disappointment.
“Madam Noor Jehan’s house has become a plaza, sad our legends don’t deserve it,” he wrote.
However, actor and writer Vasay Chaudhry disagreed and pointed out that late Madam Noor Jehan sold her house out of her own will. Shaan suggested he government should have brought it and made it into a Noor Jehan Museum.
The govt should have paid for her house and made it a madam Noor jehan museum..

To which Vasay again respectfully disagreed and said: “The government commemorated her with Civil awards and other accolades in her lifetime. It was her private property and buying her house (especially when she was not even in the need for money) doesn’t make sense, given the economic situation of our country.”
I disagree Sir, The govt commemorated her with Civil awards & other aclodes in her life time.
It was her private property and
Buying her house ( specially when she was not even in the need for money) doesn’t make sense , given the economic situation of our country.
