Hira Khan trolls India over 'Fighter' Trailer f

"I feel sorry for you guys."

Hira Khan mocked India and Bollywood filmmakers following the release of the Fighter trailer.

Starring Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor, the film follows the Indian Air Force.

Although the trailer has been praised for its action sequences, it has also garnered criticism for its apparent anti-Pakistani references.

Pakistani celebrities subsequently bashed the film.

Hira Khan was among the first and she mocked the filmmakers, questioning their need to create such content to make money.

She said: “Sad that such big superstars need to bash Pakistan to make your movies work – I feel sorry for you guys.”

Hira also aimed a jibe at India by referencing a quote from Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman.

She added: “They forgot to add the ‘Tea was fantastic also’.”

It is worth mentioning that Abhinandan Varthaman’s Mig-21 Bison jet was shot down by the Pakistan Air Force in Balakot on February 27, 2019.

During an interrogation, he had said the quote, praising Pakistani tea.

Other Pakistani stars slammed the filmmakers for allegedly villainising the country.

Taking to her Instagram Story, Hania Aamir wrote:

“So sad and unfortunate to know that there are artists out there in this day and age who are aware of the power that the cinema holds and still go ahead and feed the riff between the two countries.

“I feel sorry for the artists who try to bridge the gap by trusting their art as a medium.

“Distasteful. Let art breathe.”

Meanwhile, Zara Noor Abbas was eagerly awaiting the film. But after seeing the trailer, she said:

“I was waiting for the film but I guess now this narrative can f**k off!”

Asad Siddiqui said: “Same old chronicle!! Aren’t you guys tired of selling the same false crap?!

“Grow up guys!! The world is moving on and getting mature and you want to sell this cheap story of hatred. Could have also promoted peace.

“How about checking facts that the whole world knows.”

“You came and we shot your Mig-21 and captured your pilot and then we released him with a fantastic cup of tea.”

Fighter is the second film focused on the Indian Air Force to be released in the space of three months after Tejas.

The film is scheduled to be released on January 25, 2024.
