Ali Zafar's take on Qandeel Baloch's honour killing

New Delhi, July 25(ANI): The most recent event that stirred up every human conscience world-wide was the murder of social media sensation Qandeel Baloch in the name of honour.

Talking about her honour killing, Pakistani sensation Ali Zafar said in an interview with DNA, "I did tweet about it. I said if women started killing men to protect their honour a lot of us would be dead. It's very sad that this happened," he said.

Known for his strong political opinion, the 36-year-old actor-singer spoke about the present situation in Pakistan.

According to him, Pakistan is heading towards a "positive tomorrow," where "good things" will happen.

"Well, I am an optimist and I will always be one. I am also a romantic, but at the same time. I am also a realist. You know I made a song called Udenge after the Peshawar incident. It spoke about a positive tomorrow, where we will rise. Pakistan is headed to a good space and good things are happening. Pakistan's film industry business has picked up and had some amazing talent. Also, the youth in Pakistan is very proactive, which is a very good thing," said the 'Kill Dill' actor.

Ali also shared, "After the Peshawar attacks, we had pledged to make as many schools as the number of children that had died, so we have made about 40."

On the work front, after a long gap post 'Kill Dill' release in 2014, Ali Zafar is all set to make a comeback with Gauri Shinde's 'Dear Zindagi,' portraying as Alia Bhatt's love interest. (ANI)
