In February this year, veteran screenwriter and lyricist Javed Akhtar went for an event in Lahore, Pakistan where he openly mentioned that the people responsible for the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai in 2008 belonged to Pakistan and they are still roaming free over there. His remark got a positive response in India but quite a few Pakistani celebrities criticized him for the same.

Now, former Pakistan cricket captain Wasim Akram has reacted on Akhtar’s statement. He and his wife Shaniera Akram had a chat with Hindustan Times regarding their acting debut in the Pakistani film Money Back Guarantee, which also stars Fawad Khan.
Coming onto Akhtar’s comments, Akram said, “I would not like to comment on political subjects as I am here to promote my film.” But he added, “If I was invited to another country, I would find positive things to say about it.”
Wasim also said that he misses India, especially one food item that isn’t available in Pakistan. “We would love to come to India,” he said. “I used to be there for 7-8 months of a year. I miss my friends, people and food, most importantly dosa. We don’t have it in Pakistan. Inshallah, very soon we would come there. See all the places I have been missing for the last years and the hustle-bustle of Bombay.”
Shaniera added, “I miss India. We stayed in India for 4 years after our marriage, probably more time than we spend in Australia. I miss the way people love him in India. He didn’t play for India, but they call him Wasim Bhai. I love that.”
Directed by Faisal Qureshi, Money Back Guarantee will be released in Pakistan on April 21 during the festival of Eid.
