I will not work in Pakistan- ‘Shivaay’ actor Sayyeshaa Saigal

Sayyeshaa Saigal, who is debuting in Ajay Devgn directed Shivaay, was asked about the face off with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil .
“A lot has been spoken about it, but I don’t think it will really affect both the films. It is a Diwali weekend and people like to watch movies then.”
On the burning question of whether Pakistani artistes should be allowed to work in Bollywood, this grandniece of   veteran superstars Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar said “Although the artists community in India and Pakistan has very little to do with terrorism, if the govt  takes any decision in our interest, we should support it.”
Will you work in Pakistan in the future if offered?  “No, if it hurts people back home. Agreed art is universal but we need to be sensitive to what is happening on the border. We are Indians after all.”


When asked about a ban on Pakistani artists, Sayyeshaa said “It is sad for the films in question. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees etc were made before the current Indo- Pak tension started  and lot of efforts have been put in. Having said that they are doing what they are doing due to some unfortunate circumstances.”
