Kalki Koechlin, who has been busy shooting for her films, has kept mum all this while about the sidelining of Pakistani actors in Bollywood and says she doesn’t want to add fuel to the fire.
“I don’t want to add fuel to the fire because this thing has been going on for a long time. I personally think that we live in an international world and we have Indians living all over the world. If we asked all those NRIs to come back to India, then we would have nowhere to put them,” Kalki said.
“So, similarly, if there are guests from other countries living in our country, myself included, who is of French origin but born and bought up in India, where do I belong? If I don’t belong in this country, then I don’t know where I belong to. So, I think it’s very important to understand that,” she added.
Post the Uri attack, tensions between India and Pakistan have taken an ugly turn, following which a debate has raged on whether Pakistani actors should be banned from working in India.
