Forget the Afghani mighty KHANs (but who can!). Forget cricket and terrorism bomb blasts. There is a strong breed of Pakistani actors and singers, who rule the roost at any given point in time. Earlier they only acted in a few movies and returned to their country but now they are setting up homes in Mumbai and even applying for Indian citizenship. India indeed has a mighty heart.

"India indeed has a mighty heart." , and perhaps bird's brain. Aren't these artists getting caught time and again for violation of FEMA? Not satisfied with mere work permits, Pak artists are emboldened to try and settle down in India only because of the unmentioned influence of certain mafia in the film world. It is a shame, really.
