Bollywood films promoting crime, especially those of Salman Khan: Pak actor Rabi Pirzada

Pakistani actor Rabi Pirzada says that Bollywood movies are promoting crime, especially those of Salman Khan.

While speaking at a press conference in Lahore, Rabi said Pakistani youth is forgetting their culture and traditions because of Bollywood films.

Rabi, as quoted by The Express Tribune, said, "Every other film released in Bollywood happens to be about crime or some criminal activities, especially films of Salman Khan. My question is, what are Indian film-makers teaching the youth? It seems like they are just promoting crime."

"There was a time when Pakistani cinema was at its peak, making films with moral lessons and plots highlighting social ethics. We were educating the society through our films but Bollywood has changed all of that," she further added.

A few days ago, another Pakistani actor Saba Qamar, who will be making her Bollywood debut opposite Irrfan Khan in the film Hindi Medium, grabbed headlines for taking a dig at Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Riteish Deshmukh among others, during the Pakistani talk show Good Morning Zindagi.

When the host of the show showed her the photograph of Salman and asked her reasons why she would reject a film with him, Saba said because he is a ‘chhichhora’ (indecent), and for not knowing how to dance. Later, she cleared the air by saying, “It was a fun show. There was nothing in it… ‘What all does not happen on ‘Koffee With Karan’. I love everyone, and he’s (Salman) a big superstar and so humble. Why would I say anything bad about him?”
