Veteran poet, lyricist and screenwriter Javed Akhtar during his interaction with media, has said that ban on dramas or movies in both countries is not a good practice adding that good serials of both countries should be exchanged to telecast.
He said, “This is all wrong, there shouldn’t be any such talks coming from here, neither from there, as well. There are so many good serials which come from there (Pakistan) and they should be able to telecast here but they don’t, and our good programmes should be able to telecast there, and why should not they telecast over there and which culture is getting damaged? Neither their’s, nor our culture could get damaged.”
“These are just talks and people keep on jabbering about something or the other, someone does not want Ghulam Ali to come to India, and people from Pakistan keep on saying something else, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle haven’t been able to go to Pakistan,” he added. “In India, people don’t want Pakistani artistes, this is all wrong. As far as art and culture is concerned, whether people from Pakistan or from India, every avenue and path should be open for it.”
