Saheefa Jabbar Khattak slammed Bollywood’s silence on Palestine!

As the public criticizes Hollywood celebrities for their silence on the plight of Palestinians, actor Saheefa Jabbar Khattak raised a similar question about Bollywood celebrities, highlighting their silence on Israel’s aggression in Gaza.

Taking it to Instagram stories, Khattak said, “What are we doing about Bollywood? Our neighbouring country, where we are eager to work, and where we speak so highly of them in our interviews, NONE of them have spoken against the ongoing genocide.”

The Rafta Rafta actor also urged people to stop celebrating Bollywood celebrities and wishing them on their birthdays, pointing out that the Indian government had banned Pakistani artists from working in India.

She added that Pakistani actors are rarely offered significant roles in Bollywood, and noted that during “this genocide, the whole of India is silent.”

“It’s time that we focus on our craft, make better films and dramas, and stop seeking validation from them or anyone,” she added. 

Unfortunately, only a few prominent Bollywood figures dared to post a story hinting at the brutalities Palestinians continue to face.

In October 2023, actor Sonam Kapoor was one of the first A-list Bollywood celebrities to reshare pro-Palestine content on her Instagram story.

Tanu Weds Manu actor Swara Bhaskar had posted in 2023, stating, “Bombing kids is not self-defence. Stop the genocide” and urged people to stand up and speak out for Palestine.
