Shah Rukh Khan has produced Bard of Blood. “This just vindicates what I have been saying. Another week, and yet another anti-Pakistan project. ow can we wake up, smell the coffee and see Bollywood’s agenda for what it is? Shah Rukh Khan, be patriotic, nobody is stopping you - just don’t do it at the expense of vilifying us,” Hayat tweeted. 

Several Twitter users pointed out the similarity between Pakistani song Gore Rang and the recent song Prada. Hayat tweeted, “I find this strange. On the one hand Bollywood vilifies Pakistan at every opportunity they get. On the other, they continue to steal our songs. Copyright violation and royalty payments obviously mean nothing to them.”

Written by Shoaib Mansoor, Gore Rang Ka Zamana song was released as part of Vital Signs Volume 1.

Hayat had maintained her stance in an opinion piece written for CNN earlier. “Indian PM Modi has arguably co-opted and weaponised the country’s film industry. It’s difficult, often impossible, for Pakistani actors to find work in India,” she wrote.


“Pakistan is a Muslim majority nation and Islamophobia is a top-down industry in India: at the top, hyper-nationalist films, songs and slogans teach the masses to hate. At the grassroots, Muslims have been killed for so-called crimes like eating beef,” Hayat said.
