New Delhi: Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif's latest movie, Phantom, is making money while still in its first week. Yet the makers of the film, especially Saif Ali Khan, are upset.
Nawab Khan is distressed by the movie being dragged into the political turmoil as a result of which he is being termed the face of “anti-Pakistan” feelings.
Saif recently said, “I don't know if I should say this but I was upset with the action in Pakistan and how upset they're getting and I seem to have become the face of "anti-Pakistan feeling." This, I'm a little concerned about. Because my politics is the last thing that should become the question and for sure not against the people of Pakistan, I have absolutely nothing, except goodwill and hope that we manage to fix our problems.”
To substantiate this, Kabir Khan, the director of the film added, “I very strongly need to say that when we do something in the film, it does not mean that we want that carried out. It's just the way. (Like in Bajrangi Bhaijaan) if you find a six-year-old girl, I am not propagating you to go digging under the tunnels and cross the border. I am not. What are we trying to do is, it does in some sense reflect what we all think about.”
Saif further said that “it's a mission film quite simply. If you take the India and Pakistan element out of it - I didn't want to say this during the promotion - but it's actually a very simplistic mission film. The political element has given it some controversial edge.”
The film based on the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks has already made over Rs 37 crores.
