Muslims have always been highlighted as the enemy, says Sanam Saeed on Bollywood’s stereotyping

Muslims have always been highlighted as the enemy, says Sanam Saeed on Bollywood’s stereotyping

The actor feels that politics should not be mixed with art and culture.
15 Jan, 2023

Bollywood’s Muslim stereotype became the hot topic after clips from Neflix India’s newest film Mission Majnu started circulating on social media. The age old visual markers were ticked off — a man with kohl rimmed eyes who spits adaabs in every sentence with the backdrop of Pakistan manufacturing nuclear weapons. Actor Sanam Saeed spoke to Brut India about this kind of stereotyping and Bollywood’s ban on Pakistani artists, saying she doesn’t get why politics needs to penetrate cultural collaboration.

The Zindagi Gulzar Hai actor shared her favourite Bollywood film — Queen — terming the relatability factor as the reason. “It wasn’t a spectacle,” she said, as the conversation shifted to the way Muslims are often captured through the Bollywood lens.

“Of course, we always make fun of how Muslims are portrayed in Indian films with the kajol [kohl], namaz ki topi [prayer cap] and the green in the background somewhere to show that this is a Muslim person or Muslim community. It gets too political, they’ve always been highlighted as the enemy.” She added that she doesn’t recall seeing any projects where the two nations are friends and are collaborating together. She believes this is far from reality, “where collaborations are happening at every level”.

Jumping to the time before the ban was imposed, she said it did not come as a shock to see the cross-border cultural exchange take off. “It was exciting, it was about time. It felt very exhilarating, very liberating and kind of complete that finally these two hubs of culture, creativity and art were collaborating to form even greater stuff.”

She juxtaposed her sentiments after the ban was imposed due to the Uri attack in 2016. “It was a bit of a rude awakening, confusing — why mix politics with art and culture? Tragic but also, I guess we all got over it, it is what it is — you can’t fight it, there’s nothing you can do about it. Except stuff like this, what we’re doing now,” she said adding that despite everything, the artists are still trying to make their way and work together. “It’s unfortunate, it’s very tragic and unfortunate.”

When asked about her views on Mahira Khan’s comments about being wary of taking up Indian OTT projects which came around the time Saeed starred in ZEE5‘s Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam, she said their situations were different. “I never worked in Bollywood — this isn’t Bollywood, Bollywood is a completely different ballgame. By the time I was getting my foot in the door, the ban had come. Fawad [Khan] and Mahira really were at the brunt of it so I’m sure they are nervous and scared because of how they were treated.

“It’s definitely a confusing place to be in when one second you’re here and the next second you’re completely let go off. I can totally understand why Mahira would be nervous to take that step again because that was a tough step exit for them,” she added.

It is difficult to have a terrorist operation from Pakistan in Mumbai 10 years ago and several other operations exported from Pakistan and then have “Culture, arts, sports” traded without sensitivity to the victims and people. Perhaps the artists, sports persons mainly cricketers and Bollywood actors should be sent to the border outposts with the Jawans for 2 year stints to participate in the defense of the country. That may limit their greed to make more money by “unholy alliances”.

Yet Zeenat Aman, Parveen Nabi, Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah, Aamir, Shahrukh, Salman, Salim-Javed, AR Rahman, Katrina Kaif, Aalia Bhatt were supported due to their art. No one saw their religion. But yes when Uri happened and neither Mahira or Fawad condemned the terror attack, Indian motion pictures association decided not to use Pakistani actors. There was no BAN by the government. Sanam should show a Pakistani movie where Indians are sympathetically portrayed.

Actually, Pakistanis have been portrayed enemy of India. 99% of Pakistanis are happened to be Muslims so it is perceived as Muslims are portrayed negatively. BoycottBollywood trend is very active in India nowadays because of opposite reasons. Indian Muslims have been portrayed as good human beings, very liberal and quite honest people in Bollywood cinemas, and Hindus in general and the Hindu culture and beliefs have been mocked by Bollywood cinema. That's why people in India are Boycotting it. Indian people can afford to dump Bollywood because there is another film industry in the South part of India that is much better than Bollywood and it has started providing some fantastic movies in multiple Indian languages. Bahubali, RRR, and KGF are some exceptional movies from that industry. Most Indian people now hate the Bollywood industry.
