Actress Richa Chadha faced rage on her Twitter wall because she backed Fawad Khan and expressed that India and Pakistan have a lot in common. This happened at the Indian Film Festival in Melbourne, when Fawad was asked by a journalist to comment on the cultural differences between India and Pakistan and how Bollywood “has adopted westernisation while showcasing romance or kissing scenes.” Before Fawad could answer that, Richa said:
“You know we were colonised by the British for a really long time. It’s a part of the… I am sorry if I am offending anybody here, but if you look at worldwide history, every time the British left an empire they divided it. Whether it was North Korea or South Korea then there was Germany. It is a part of the strategy to keep political unrest… I am sorry but your question to me doesn’t make sense because I will have far more in common with Fawad because I am from the North of India than I will have with somebody who is a Tam-brahm or maybe a Malayali or from the North East. I think we should avoid stereotyping in questions or creating some kind of contradiction here because the whole intent and especially art does really have any borders.”
Richa Chadha was subsequently trolled on Twitter. The trolls even called her “a bimbette” and “Pakistani Fawad.” She knows how to deal with trolls and was quick to give it back to them. S
Not your fault girl! It’s the typical mindset that never changes. We hope you will never change!
