Dalbir, complimented Aishwarya Rai and said she is proud of her.
"Aishwarya is like my younger sister. I saw a lot of me in her. It
must've been difficult for her to adapt to Punjabi culture,
language. It must've have been emotional for her too. I feel
extremely proud of her and Randeep," Dalbir said.
Sarabjit Singh died in a Pakistan jail after a fellow inmate
assaulted him, but Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda, who plays
Sarabjit in his next, Sarbjit, claims the film does not show
Pakistan in a bad light.
"I don't think there is any Pakistan bashing per say in the
film. But yes, there are a lot of prisoners over there and some are
subjected to atrocities. I am not sure if that happens here as
well...If you treat somebody for such things just because of their
nationality and not their crime, then, if it happens in India or
Pakistan, it is always wrong," the actor said.
Randeep added that the film merely chronicles the life of a
common man, who was stuck between the political climate of India
and Pakistan. "The film is based in a Pakistan prison. But there is
nothing that we are bashing a country like Pakistan. It's just a
situation where a normal person is stuck between the political ups
and downs between the two countries."
