Bollywood films do very well in Pakistan and the Muslim Khans are popular there..so the 3 Khans always potray Pakis in a good light , its a business decision nothing more nothing less.

Also lot of non resident Pakis abroad in NA , Middle East , UK & other countries just like Indians ( NRI )..who ( NR Pakis ), also watch these movies and spend $$$$ ..so don't want to lose their business either .

If I watch A Bollywood movie in Canada or US , i find 50 % of the theatre is filled with Pakis , especially for the Khan movies..only 50 % is Indians ..should be the same in UK. Middle East etc....huge cash cow :)

I think it would be discriminatory to classify Muslim Khans or Dilip Kumar or AR Rehman as Muslim artists... I and the general public and India sees them more as Indians.

Yes Indian movies are popular abroad and in Pakistan. But that has been the same if they were starring Amitabh Bachchan , Hrithik Roshan or Akshay Kumar as well.

I recall a Qatari lady exclaim 'Amitabh Bachchan' in a gathering 15 years back when the conversation moved to Indian cinema taking me aback that she had seen AB's movies !!

What a twisted logic you have, man! What do you say about the majority of Indians (HIndus included) that have made these Khans superstars. What do you have to say about the living legend Dilip Kumar?

Care to explain the movies where they ever portrayed 'specificially' any country in a good/bad light? I would love to see the list. Please...

I seriously think if all Hindus have issues with Khans, they should collectively boycott their movies. Please make an appeal to them via. Internet - It's not that tough these days. Try your luck.

Yet the same prime minister was sitting with the same general after 2 years talking peace !!!!

While Lakhvi was released from jail in Pakistan, Modi G was giving joint declaration with Pakistani PM ......

Once you understand these actions you will have a better understanding on how we need to deal with Pakistan .....

Surprise Could not got tickets on Saturday/Sunday....all shows was houseful....:cuss:

We luckily got ticket for 8.30 pm.seeing crowd to watch movie aftr buying ticket scared my children who told us we can go another day whn it's less crowded.;)

This is our first Hindi movie in canada( we saw children movie all these years). Whn the child got separated frm mother, my daughter got scared and started crying. She wanted to go home coz it's not appropriate for her age whn salman khan got slapped frm his father for failing so many times, she got more scared. She told me salman khan shd call 911. :)

Overall entertaining movie(time pass) with comedy. I just remembered my wise mom words which she told me whn I was small and our neighbour was a muslim. She told me muslim aur police walon se dosti bhi nahi, dushmani bhi nahi karni chahiye.

I feel, in reality border soldiers on the paki side especially would be more cruel and ruthless and wud kill Indians without gvg second thought. Just a feeling. I could be wrong. :(

Revenge can be bitter sweet, but if u sit back and watch, KARMA can be pure entertainment.:)

Akshay Kumar movie " Baby " released this year & a very good movie, was banned in Pakistan for showing the truth.

Any Paki or Muslim is shown as a terrorist in a Bollywood movie & what's really happening in Jammu & Kashmir is shown ( truth/reality ) ..Pakis reject the movie & it gets banned.

But AKKI doesn't care & will show truth in his movies...he won't sell out to get Paki business.

The exact same movie if made by the "Khans" would have hidden the truth & shown the Pakis in good light..so as to get & appease the Paki audience in Pakistan , NA , Middle East , UK etc.

The Khans have a huge muslim follwing all over the world, but don't have the balls to show Muslim terrorism etc.

In "PK " movie, Aamir Khan has shown "Lord Shiva" a Hindu god running around & making a fool of himself.
Will he have the balls to show the pedophile prophet Mohammad doing the same ? you can't even draw a cartoon of that pedophile without getting killed. He knew the only god he can make a fool of & get away with is the Hindu God...Not the Muslim God .

And your point is ... ???

To be popular according to you , one should portray as a terrorist ...huh .. further twisted logic.

So if Amitabh Bachchan has not played a terrorist role , he is not befittingly popular .

Lets not mix entertainment with religion.... Bollywood and not only the Khans is immensely popular in Pakistan and that predates the Khans .... Amitabh Bachchan and others ... and one main reason for that is the similarity of language.

But to your point if I am not mistaken Aamir Khan had played a terrorist in 'Fanaa' ..Go see that movie :)
