"Shame on your mentality, you upstart jaahil.”
Mishi Khan heavily criticised Kangana Ranaut following the latter’s anti-Pakistan remark.
Controversy first arose when Javed Akhtar made anti-Pakistan sentiments while in the country during the 7th international Faiz festival.
Speaking about the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, Javed said:
“We saw how Mumbai was attacked… They (the terrorists) are still roaming freely in your country.”
He also said that Pakistan never held any event for Lata Mangeshkar despite India organising big events for Pakistani artists Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Mehdi Hasan.
The remark sparked outrage, however, Kangana praised him.
She tweeted: “Whenever I listen to Javed Saab’s poetry, I feel like Goddess Saraswati has blessed him.
“But there must be some truth within a person for him to be blessed with divinity. Jai Hind.
“He spilt their truth in their land.”
Actress Mishi Khan responded to Kangana’s tweet and hit back in a video.
In the caption, she wrote: “This is my reply to Kangana Ranaut and Javed Akhtar who in her tweet blatantly said which I have attached with my post. You are full of venom for Pakistan.
“We are not sitting here just for upstarts like you to comment on us.
“Behave because we know how to reply back and only have little etiquette for our guests.
“Why did he come here if he has such vile thoughts? Shame on your mentality, you upstart jaahil.”
Labelling Kangana and “upstart” and “mental”, Mishi reminded her that Javed Akhtar was welcomed with wide arms and the highest respect by Pakistan and its people, however, he spread hatred.

In another video message, Mishi Khan addressed Javed and reprimanded him for his remarks because he was visiting the nation to take part in a literary festival.
Although Kangana had praised Javed Akhtar, the latter did not seem impressed as he refused to talk about it.
When asked about the matter, he ignored the question and said:
“I don’t consider Kangana important, so how can she make an important remark? Forget about her. Let’s move forward.”
Javed Akhtar had filed a complaint against Kangana Ranaut stating that in 2020, she had defamed him on a television channel.
It is important to note that several prominent celebrities such as Faysal Qureshi, Aijaz Aslam, Noor Bukhari, Saboor Aly and others, have denounced Javed Akhtar for his anti-Pakistan sentiments.
