Web-Desk: Director-General of Inter-Service Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor slammed Bollywood King Shahrukh Khan for his jingoistic approach as the latter releases promo off his upcoming Netflix production”Bard and Blood” revolving around a story of four Research Analysis & Wing m(RAW) officials entering into Balochistan (Pakistan).
The description that Shahrukh gave to his Netflix venture is “a thrilling tale of espionage, vengeance, love and duty,”— Bard of Blood.
Emraan Hashmi is heading the lead role and was unveiled in a trailer on Netflix.
Hashmi plays RAW agent Kabir Anand who puts together a team comprising of Isha Khanna, played by Made in Heaven fame Sobhita Dhulipala, and Veer, essayed by actor Vineet Kumar to save four Indian spies captured in Pakistan’s province of Balochistan.
Given the current political environment between the neighboring countries, Khan’s Bard of Blood could only make it worse.
Stay in bollywood syndrome @iamsrk . For reality see RAW Spy Kulbhushan Jadev, Wing Comd Abhinandan & state of 27 Feb 2019.
You could rather promote peace & humanity by speaking against atrocities in IOJ&K and against Hindituva of Nazism obsessed RSS. https://t.co/0FWqoRQsO6

Not only that, Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat took serious exception over vilification against Pakistan and asked the Dil Walay hero to stop vilifying Pakistan which can even be done while remaining patriotic to his own country.
This just vindicates what I have been saying for so long. Another week & yet another anti-Pakistan project. Now can we wake up, smell the coffee & see Bollywood’s agenda for what it is?@iamsrk Be patriotic, nobody is stopping you – just don’t do it at the expense of vilifying us. https://t.co/iCElRpJAa1
