Sid­harth sup­ports Fawad amid con­tro­versy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra (far left) has come out in sup­port of his co-star Fawad Khan (left), in the face of Shiv Sena seek­ing a ban on Pak­istani artists per­form­ing in Ma­ha­rash­tra.

The 30-year-old Hasee Toh Phasee ac­tor is work­ing with Fawad in an up­com­ing film, which also stars Alia Bhatt. “Ev­ery­body has the free­dom to work. He has been work­ing with us for a while now. I be­lieve cre­ativ­ity crosses bor­der,” says Sid­harth. Re­cently, the po­lit­i­cal party had said that it would not al­low any Pak­istani ac­tor, cricketer or per­former to step on Ma­ha­rash­tra’s soil. Seek­ing a ban, it tar­geted Pak­istani ac­tors like Fawad and Mahira Khan, who are try­ing to gain a foothold in the Hindi film industry. Mean­while, Sid­harth praised his ru­moured girl­friend Alia’s lat­est on­screen out­ing costar­ring Shahid Kapoor, de­spite the film largely get­ting neg­a­tive re­views. “I saw the film and I loved it. It’s a great film,” he said.
