Pakistan Upset With ‘Sooryavanshi’, After Actress Mehwish Hayat, President Alvi Said, “The Film Will Promote Islamophobia”
While Akshay Kumar’s recently released film ‘Sooryavanshi’ is being liked across the country, the film has troubled the neighboring country of Pakistan. From Pakistan’s President Arif Alvi to actress Mehwish Hayat as soon as the film’s release, there are concerns that the film will promote Islamophobia. Released on November 5 on the occasion of Diwali, this film has entered the list of 100 crores. Also, the people of Pakistan are having trouble as to why the villain in the film is named Muslim. At the same time, the director of the film Rohit Shetty has already given his statement on this issue. Apart from Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh also appeared in this film. At the same time, a person playing the role of Villain in the film was named Muslim
Dangerous for India. In this Islamophobic hatred India will destroy itself, no less. I hope & pray that sane elements within Indian society prevent this.

At the same time, some people have objected to this why the villain was named Muslim. A few days ago, the film’s producer and director Rohit Shetty was asked a question about this thing, then he said that if the villain of my film was a Hindu, would these questions still arise? If a terrorist from Pakistan comes to our country, what name would we give to him, what would be his religion? The story of the film also remains on this that our police officers are catching the terrorist who came from Pakistan. Pakistan President Arif Alvi tweeted on the Sooryavanshi film and said that such Islamophobic content will destroy India itself. I hope that the sensible people of India will succeed in doing such things. Along with this, Oscar-nominated British artist of Pakistan origin Riz Ahmed also used objectionable emoji while commenting on social media raising this issue.
“Sooryavanshi”is the latest film in Bollywood promoting islamophobia. The tide is turning in Hollywood & I hope that across the border they will also follow suit. As I’ve said, if not positive depictions,at least be fair in the way that you show Muslims. Build bridges not hatred! pic.twitter.com/DA7MUuVpKo

At the same time, Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat is on this issue that she too has a problem with the subject of this film and the Muslim character. Hayat also said that Islamophobia is affecting not only cinema but the whole world. Mehwish tweeted and wrote– Sooryavanshi is the latest Bollywood film, which is engaged in promoting Islamophobia. This trend started with Hollywood. If we are unable to show the Muslim character as positive, then at least justice should be done to them. At the same time, according to a report of Pakistan’s ‘Sama TV’ – the trend of showing Muslims as villains in Bollywood started with the film ‘Uri – The Surgical Strike’. This film, which came in the year 2019, was a huge hit. Since then, the image of Pakistan has started showing more negative than before
