Pakistani Celebrities Express Harsh Reactions to Bollywood Film “Fighter” for its Anti-Pakistani Content

Take on the much too repetitive “anti-Pakistan” narrative for Bollywood’s.

In the world of entertainment, films often serve as a medium for storytelling, cultural representation, and artistic expression. However, when a film’s narrative crosses boundaries and includes content that is perceived as anti-national or offensive, it sparks strong reactions. Recently, the Bollywood film “Fighter” found itself amid controversy as Pakistani celebrities voiced their harsh reactions against what they perceived as anti-Pakistani content.

Pakistani celebrities suggested that the film may have depicted Pakistan in a negative light or perpetuated harmful stereotypes.

Prominent figures from the Pakistani entertainment industry took to social media platforms to express their dismay and disappointment regarding the alleged anti-Pakistani content in “Fighter.” Many celebrities emphasized the importance of responsible storytelling and the need to avoid perpetuating negative stereotypes that could contribute to tensions between neighboring countries.

Actors like Zara Noor Abbas, Asad Siddiqui, Hira Khan, and MUA Natasha Lakhani shared their views on their respective social media accounts.


Pakistani celebrities, through their harsh reactions, have emphasized the need for content that fosters unity and understanding rather than perpetuating divisive narratives.

As the entertainment industry continues to evolve, discussions on responsible filmmaking and cross-cultural understanding are likely to shape the narrative for a more harmonious coexistence in the realm of art and cinema.

The trailer of Siddharth Anand’s much-awaited aerial action drama, Fighter was unveiled on Monday. The film has Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, and Anil Kapoor in the lead roles, along with Karan Singh Grover, Akshay Oberoi, and Talat Aziz.

According to the trailer, the film revolves around “the deadliest terror attack on Indian air forces” in Pulwama. The film references the Pulwama attack as well as India’s strikes across the border in Balakot. As the trailer progresses, a character, presumably playing the PM of India, talks about taking revenge and making the ‘dushman’ realize, ‘Baap kaun hai?’

The film, which revolves around IAF officers, will hit the theatres on January 25
