"We have always shared a very complicated relationship. If you tell uncomfortable truths, films gets banned. We keep banning each other's films."

"If you try making a film which portrays a certain element of truth, something that makes Pakistan a little bit uncomfortable, they will ban it. They did that with many of my films, so I have faced it already. But that doesn't necessarily dictate what kind of movies we should make. If that did, we would end up making only films like Race," said the actor.

I don't have faith in Pakistan

"I don't have faith in Pakistan, generally. Neither do I understand what their thought processes are. I have no problems against Pakistan and I won't make a film that's against the country. But now they have banned the film. We have always shared a very complicated relationship. If you tell uncomfortable truths, films gets banned. We keep banning each other's films."

I had to kill him, or he had to kill me

"It's a complicated situation. The two countries are opposed to each other. Even during our childhood days, when my cousin and I used to play games, it was a difficult situation for us as either I had to kill him, or he had to kill me to win the battle. Even back then, we were somewhere aware of the fact that we belong to enemy countries. Everything said and done, I think I would still choose my country over any relative. I would be against anyone who is against my country," says Khan.

India is not a proper place to bring up a Muslim boy

"Shahryar Khan moved to Pakistan post partition, thinking that India is not a proper place to bring up a Muslim boy. But he is a highly respected man. As a foreign secretary, he still speaks to our government. I think he is an amazing man. But ISI is something completely different."

Pakistan a little bit uncomfortable, they will ban it

"If you try making a film which portrays a certain element of truth, something that makes Pakistan a little bit uncomfortable, they will ban it. They did that with many of my films, so I have faced it already. But that doesn't necessarily dictate what kind of movies we should make. If that did, we would end up making only films like Race."

Pakistan is the villain

"I am sure, there must be areas. I think the world has sections of people who are extremists. There must be people who say Pakistan is the villain or someone who says some other religion is bad. But I think the majority of the population is peace-loving, be it in India or Pakistan. The enormous success of Bajrangi Bhaijaan shows that most people would like a Utopian situation," he said.

No one is interested in bashing Pakistan

"I didn't know anything about Hafiz Saeed till Kabir introduced me to him. And it was appalling to hear about the brutalities he had inflicted on innocent people. Despite this, I don't think we would ever treat the subject in a jingoistic or sensational way. No one is interested in bashing Pakistan."
