Why No Pakistani Players? Rishi Asks.

Bollywood’s Chintu is breaking the boundaries and trying to melt the ice between the nations. Once again, the veteran actor Rishi Kapoor came up with an open heart and tweeted concerning the addition of Pakistani players, prior to the beginning of IPL 2017.

He moaned over the fact that where on one hand, Afghanis were making their debut, the Pakistan players have to be bereft of the IPL. He further said that we Indians have a big heart and thus we should allow Pakistan players to also play in the premier tournament.

IPL’s 10th edition is about to start and no Pakistani Players have been a part of IPL since the inaugural season 2008. Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Younus Khan, Muhammad Asif, Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Akhtar, Misbah Ul Haq, Umar Gul, Sohail Tanvir, Muhammad Hafeez, and Salman Butt had played season 1 and were part of season 2 but unfortunately, all eleven players were stopped to play from their franchises.

This is not the latest case as Rishi Kapoor has tried to endorse the peace between the nations in previous instances, too. The actor has seen keenly active on his twitter account whether praising Pakistan’s win or appreciating any player for outstanding performance.

Though Rishi has to face such harsh criticism and negative replies on his peace efforts but he never ceases to amaze everyone with the energies of being neutral.  A few months back, he played a positive part in the controversy created by extremists Hindus over the name of Saif and Kareena’s baby boy Taimur Ali Khan. Rishi Kapoor defended the parents’ stance and asked critics to mind their own business.
