Pakistani actor Fawad Khan today spoke about the strained India and Pakistan relations and a ban on artistes from his country after the Uri terror attack last month.
In his statement, the actor said "I've been in Lahore since July as my wife and I had been expecting our second child."
"I've received numerous requests from the media and from well wishers worldwide asking me for my thoughts on the sad incidents that took place in the past few weeks. As a father of two little children, I pray and wish like many others that together we can build and live in a more peaceful world. I believe we owe it to our children who will shape our tomorrow," added the actor.
Clearing all the rumours, Khan said: "This is the first time I have spoken on the matter. Please disregard any other words attributed to me during this time because I have not said them. I thank all my fans and fellow artists from Pakistan, India and people in general all over the world who have shown continued support for their belief in love and understanding to unite a divisive world.
A prominent face in recent Hindi films, Khan was dragged into the controversy over calls to ban Pakistani artistes in India.
