Abhay Deol

If you keep up with the latest movies in Bollywood, you’d already know that Abhay Deol plays a Pakistani man in his latest film Happy Bhaag Jayegi. Yes, the same film which also marked Diana Penty’s comeback into the industry after three years. The film actually did fairly well at the box office, and has garnered mostly positive reviews from the audience. But sadly, it was banned in Pakistan.
And Abhay Deol recently shared a Facebook post, talking about how he was frequently asked about playing a Pakistani in a movie. 

He wrote, “One question I was repeatedly asked during the promotions was, ‘how hard was it to play a Pakistani?’ I was taken aback not by the question but by the frequency with which it was asked. I always stressed on the fact that 70 years of separation are not long enough to undo what a shared history, of over thousands of years, has done.”

He also raised an interesting question, asking how would our freedom fighters feel when they see us as two separate nations. 

He added, ” Imagine those who fought for freedom from our recent conquerors the British, and died before the conceptualization of Pakistan. What would they have to say about how we view one another today, as two nations? What would they feel, and say, about their sacrifices?”

Here’s the entire post.
