Shaan Shahid thinks Madam Noor Jehan’s house should be turned into a museum
Shaan Shahid is quite the patriot, that much is no secret.
So it’s no surprise that the actor wasn’t too happy when the government announced reserving Rs50 million for restoration of historical sites in KPK, including the ancestral homes of iconic Bollywood actors Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar.
“Madam Noor Jehan’s house has become a plaza… Sad our legends deserve it too,” he tweeted.
When Vasay Chaudhry pointed out that she sold that house on her own volition, Shahid suggested that the government should’ve paid for the house and turned it into a museum.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1307256678832844802&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.dawn.com%2Fnews%2F1185809&siteScreenName=dawn_images&theme=light&widgetsVersion=219d021%3A1598982042171&width=550pxhttps://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1307300071147474945&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.dawn.com%2Fnews%2F1185809&siteScreenName=dawn_images&theme=light&widgetsVersion=219d021%3A1598982042171&width=550px
The Jawani Phir Nahi Aani actor still didn’t see Shaan’s point and shared that he respectfully disagrees.
“The government commemorated her with civil awards and other accolades in her lifetime. It was her private property and buying her house (especially when she was not even in the need for money) doesn’t make sense, given the economic situation of our country,” he said.
Other than Kapoor and Kumar, other well-known celebs with roots in Peshawar include Shah Rukh Khan and Vinod Khanna.
