The "Na Maloom Afraad" actor took to Twitter to retort to Bhasker's comments stating: "Pakistan is the country that you @ReallySwara referred to, in 2015, as the "Best country you have ever visited" and it has only gotten better in the last few years in every aspect along with when it comes to having bigger hearts and welcoming our guests". "United by hating on Swara".
The Ranjhaana actor lastly tweeted that matters of government of a country and its people are distinct, and her love for Pakistan remains unchanged.
In order to douse the ire, the actor tweeted today: "There should be a distinction between States/ govts of a country & the people of that country". I'm not surprised at all. Some of my closest friends are Pakistani. To which, the actor had this to say: "And why should we hold Pakistan, a failing state as a keep taking pleasure and a sense of self-worth from all the silly things that are happening in Pakistan". "Lahore remains one of my soul cities".
She also said that Pakistanis have way worse vocabulary than we do. "I know", she added.
