Drunk Bollywood veteran spoils the party

According to newspaper reports, Bollywood veteran Actor, Producer, Director Feroz Khan went out of his senses while being drunk at a fund-raising dinner party at Royal Palm Golf & Country Club Wednesday night and spoiled the show.


The party organized at Royal Palm had an entry pass available only to Club members for Rs.8,000/- per person and was aimed to collect donations for the Earthquake victims. All members of the visiting Indian delegation headed by the Indian Cultural Minister Ms. Prodi including veteran Actor & MLA, Shatrogan Sinha, Mahesh Bhatt, Akbar Khan, Feroz Khan, Sanjay Khan, Fardeen & Natasha, Shashi Ranjan, Manisha Koirala, Kabir Bedi, Zulfi Syed, and many other socialites, politicians, bureaucrats, people from Pakistani Film industry were present on the occasion.

It was all glitz & glamour with Indian super stars mingling with their hosts and the affluent Lahorites, until, when Feroz Khan was invited on stage by our very own Fakhr-e-Alam. It was then that a highly drunk Feroz Khan started saying crap like “India is a great country; there’s no country like India”, “We are not killing Muslims, the truth is Muslims are killing Muslims in Pakistan”.

Later on, when Fakhr-e-Alam was interviewing Manisha Koirala, on asking a particular question, Feroz Khan leaped forward to have a fight with Fakhr-e-Alam. When the audience showed their dislike towards his behavior, his response was; “Shut up and listen to me”. His microphone was switched off. At this moment Shatrogan Sinha handled the situation with a grace by addressing the gathering.

Feroz Khan again tried to get on stage and this time was interrupted by his brother Akbar Khan, who also is the maker of ‘Taj Mahal’. On this, Feroz went abusive towards his brother while shouting and calling people names.

    We are not killing Muslims, the truth is Muslims are killing Muslims in Pakistan.

    No kidding. It was all true isn’t it but at least he shouldn’t have said in Pakistan after all he is a guest here :).

    What a B******. And why the heck were they serving alcoholic beverages in the ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN anyway? Honestly, have you guys ever wondered why Pakistan is always referred to as the Islamic Republic of Pakistan yet barely nothing about it seems Islamic anymore? Why are we inviting drunk stray dogs from across the border anyway? It’s not like they’re going to make the turmoil of the earthquake disappear? I mean, I love Pakistan but certain things are beginning to get annoying!!

    That’s our biggest ‘Almiyah’.

    And for this dot-dot-dot, an columnist has rightly said in today’s The Jang, that he should have been kicked out of this country with his Visa cancelled.

    Or, are we still INDIFFERENT??

    Proves one thing.

    Indians are no different than us Pakistanis.

    They are just good at “pretending”.

    Shame! Shame! on the so called “celebrities”.

    Excellent job by feroz Khan. Hats off to him, for speaking his mind even in pakistan. I believe Sakr-e-Alam was shaking with fear, when the Khan told him “I’ll beat the sh*t out of you”. I guess Sakre-e-Alam was aware of the famous Khan temper and did’nt want to mess with him. In 1999 too, during an Pak-india match, Khan had threatened Shoaib Akhtar with dire consequences. Despite Khan making such statements about Pakistan, the pakistani authorities cant do anything coz Bollywood is too powerful.

    That speaks for how ill-mannered these people really are…

  7. Kashif (unregistered) on May 2nd, 2006 @ 9:39 am

    Hats off to Fakhar for keeping his cool and showing the world that we are a hospitable nation. People like Feroz Khan are a shame for their country and that is why all the other Indian celebs disassociated themselves from Mr Feroz Khan.

  8. forgerator (unregistered) on May 2nd, 2006 @ 11:48 am

    Hats off to Feroz Khan? dude he should thank his lucky stars he wasn’t beaten into a pulp right there and then. They should have thrown his ass out of the club on the very first confrontation.

  9. ToastyTea (unregistered) on May 3rd, 2006 @ 1:04 am

    I agree with everyone that said he should have been kicked out of there right away. What possessed them all to keep that junglee around? And I don’t know why he’s so patriotic anyway? He’s not really Indian. Stupid nation-hopper. He’s Afghan. He should neither be in Pakistan nor India but instead in some mountainous area flying a kite or something.

  10. Bambal Khan (unregistered) on May 3rd, 2006 @ 11:10 am

    It was a tremendous act of gritty courage by feroz Khan, the veteran Hindi film actor. He spoke his mind, regardless of the fact that he was in Pakistan. He is a ture patriot. In fact after feroz Khan started his tirade against pakistan, the entire audience was shocked into silence. When he caught Fakhr-e-Alam by his throat, Fakhr started gasping for breath and started shouting for help. This shows how fit the Khan is. Despite his age he is able to thrash a much younger chap. As for Khan being an Afghan, his ancestors were Afghan, but he is very much from Bangalore, being born there.
    The BJP has sent a letter of commendation in appreciation Feroz Khan’s comments in Pakistan. I would urge the Congress to follow suit and honour this great actor, film maker, and true patriot with the Padma Vibushan award. While hindus like Shatrughan sinha and Mahesh Bhatt were playing up to pakistani sentiments, Khan, despite being muslim has shown the true meaning of being Indian. i salute him.

  11. Rizwan (unregistered) on May 3rd, 2006 @ 11:59 am

    WHAT THE F*** MAN, What the hell our Government is doing???? y didnt they kick out Feroz Khan right away out of our Pakistan, Shame on Punjab Government and Federal Government, how did we tolerate such acts? if Pakistani actor would have done it in india, they would’ve kicked him out right away…..shame on Pakistani government, Y our government has not banned the Taj Mahal movie??? y is it still up on screen after hearing looser Feroz khan Bullshit, and Why they are not playing video clips up on our media, we should slap indians every day just by showing the sorry ass video clips of Feroz Khan.

  12. Asim (unregistered) on May 3rd, 2006 @ 12:03 pm

    i agree with rizwan ! pakistani authorities have failed to take serious action against feroz khan. media should also play the video clips of that show and tell indians about offending behavior of feroz khan. this is what we get for being a host? that some drunk stupid man talk shit against pakistan and bjp next day give statement to support him. yes ban Taj Mahal and play video of that incident and also we should question our government for not taking serious step

  13. Bambal Khan (unregistered) on May 3rd, 2006 @ 12:05 pm

    The Pakistani media is not showing clips of Feroz Khan, because the entire nation of Pakistan will be embarassed by his comments. Also the fact that, Fakhr-e-Alam was shaking with fear and begging the Khan to spare him, wouldn’t go down well with the Pakistani audience. even if they do show it on Pakistani channels, no indian will be able to see it as pakistani channels, are not watched in India at all. This is because Pakistan has around 10 very bad and boring channels, while India has about 200 channels which every Pakistani watches.
    As for Taj Mahal movie not being banned, it is because it is generating more funds that the dirty Pakistani movies. Most of these funds will be pocketed by the pakistani Government, while a pitiful little will go to earthquake victims. I feed sad at the plight of Pakistan, which has to rely upon Indians and Indian movies in order to provide rehablitation to earthquake victims.

  14. amir (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 1:55 am

    this has been one of my bad experience reading
    such a bloody and embarassing story.
    i do agree with the writers opnion and feel very
    pitty for fearful alam for not defending himself
    from bloody drunk feroz khan.
    to be honest with you if i would have been there
    instead of f alam i would have killed the f….ing khan or atleast resist to get him back
    in his senses.

  15. NAJAM (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 5:16 am

    i read it and i m just amazed with it that khan’s who is selling there daughters in the show biz have such type of views about the pakistani muslims but this is not that amazing as they have no so called muslims like indian khan’s. Ne ways ne one who porud on such thing and about the khan’s action but that damn shit for all indians they try to handle all this stuff with a happiest way but they should just look at their own country its finally proved that indian’r not trustable and they r not capable to come on screen bcoz they visibily r not b able to make any type of friendship with them.



  16. Sohail (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 1:06 pm

    Well I don’t think anyone of you need to go so low. Just try to stop killing each other. We have already lost half of Pakistan (Bangladesh) in 1971, so lets try to work for united Pakistan. I am ashamed to see that the Lahore’s window to the world is so dirty.

  17. Balloon-o-Eight (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 5:40 pm

    It’s been of utter disgust, for us and all our readers, to find some people using such indecent language here.

    Please, be sure of being in ‘your’ own senses before giving any comments on Lahore Metroblog, or for the matter, anywhere else too, for your views & behavior reflect the kind of upbringing you have been through.

    It would be greatly appreciated, if all participants in this discussion donot use such language or post such a comment that makes readers ashamed of reading it…

    Thank you very much!

    i agree with balloon-o-eight. get a grip people, please.

    Feroz kHan said:

    We are not killing Muslims,

    has he and mariam both forgot Babri masjid destruction,Gujrat riot and recent burning of muslim LIVE in gujrat.Mariam are you same woman who used to talk *weird* and *meaningless* thing on Karachi metroblog?

    the truth is Muslims are killing Muslims in Pakistan.

    I agree here 100%. Feroz khan actually trying hard to getinto politics,he needed ashirward of BJP and he got succeeded.No doubt both feroz and his son fardeen khan are crappies actor in Indian Cinema.

  20. Bambal Khan (unregistered) on May 6th, 2006 @ 10:24 am

    Sorry about the delayed reply. weekdays are quite hectic in the office, and i rarely get time to surf. Firstly I would appreciate it if some of the lesser civilized people here would tone down the language a bit. Just by abusing, you are not proving you are superior, it just shows your frustration.
    Mr Feroz Khan’s comments have been appreciated highly in the Indian media, and now the honourable president of the republic of India, dr Apj Abdul Kalam has also advocated his views.
    It is indeed, a fact that muslims are killing muslims in Pakistan. That aside, i would like to return to the topic of Fakhr-e-Alam wetting his pants in fear when confronted by the Khan. The poin I am making here is, though some Pakistanis may resort to typing a lot of nonsense here, out of sheer frustration, in reality they run scared when confronted by Indians.
    Despite Khan making such statements, Pakistan has done nothing to stop the screening of Taj Mahal. Bollywood is much too powerful, for Pakistan to stop. No wonder all Pakistanis watch Indian movies and not Pakistani movies, and why not? Insignificant comedians like Johnny Lever charge mopre remuneration that top actors in Pakistan. There is more to the Feroz Khan story – It is stated in the Pakistani media that Khan started throwing plates at Fakh-e-Alam. who ran backstage in a show of cowardliness. After this Khan started abusing the High fliers in the Lahore society, calling them alcoholics and desperate for Indian women. Naturally the people in Lahore didn’t take too kindly to Khan espousing the truth in this open manner. After all isn’t pakistan an alcohol free society? hehe!
    After saying all this, Khan left to Dubai, from where he made calls to BJP vice president, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and explained the situation to him. The BJP on it’s part has felicitated Khan and has promised to bring him into the fray for a Padma Vibushan award next year.
    I would request all Mohajirs and Indians to please stand up for the noble statements and character of mr Feroz Khan, and put pressure on the satanic congress government to award him with a top state honour. Also my request to all of you is to watch the movie Taj Mahal, which bombed in India very badly, but is generating a terrific response in Pakistan, and thus filling the pockets of mr Akbar khan [who secretly follows the Feroz Khan ideology]. Also watch the movie to enable the poor earthquake victims in Pakistan to get some compensation, since the Pakistan government is too poor to do anything on it’s own. It’s up to us to help poor countries like Pakistan rehablitate it’s people.
    Thanks and regards

    Mr Bambal(Bamboo) Khan,regardless he said truth or not,he showed that indians have no manners to attend some public gathering,if a drunked person is being appreciated by your Media,one can figure out that what kinda country India is.Because of such attitude,your so called *big and ecnomic* country couldn’t do anything for the thousands of ppl who sleep on street of Bombay.Pls change your attitude and do come out of shitholes.

    and your president is a muslim?last time I heard he was a qadyani?

  22. Adnan (unregistered) on May 6th, 2006 @ 12:35 pm

    Sure,we would be more glad to read this:


    when ppl like feroz khan become reason of embarssment.Bring more like that and reveal the real India to us.

  23. Bambal Khan (unregistered) on May 6th, 2006 @ 1:08 pm

    well mr Adnan, referring to people sleeping on the streets, maybe u should take a better look at lahore and karachi. Please also do take a look at Pakistan’s economy vis-a-vis india’s.
    A recent survey conducted by USA states Pakistan position in the to 10 failed nations.
    coming from a shitpot of a failed nation and talking about economic giants in the reigon is a fantasy os Pakistanis. China is compared with India in the west, not Pakistan. Pakistan is compared with Nepal and Bangladesh.
    As for mr Feroz Khan, drunk or not drunk, he voiced his opinions and well valued ones at that. He has a right to, because he did not come to Pakistan on his own. Pakistan’s government wanted the screening of Taj Mahal and they begged Indian filmstars to come there.

  24. Bambal Khan (unregistered) on May 6th, 2006 @ 1:12 pm

    poor prople in Lahore and Karachi are selling pictures and posters of Indian film stars on the streets. That itself shows you the power of bollywood in Pakistan. In no Indian city will you see posters of Pakistani film stars being sold. everyone in pakistan watches Indian TV channels, no one in India watches pakistani channels. India has a plethora of Multinational companies etc microsoft, intel, ibm, dell, deloitte, texas instruments, etc etc etc. How many in Pakistan? can u name a few? this itself proves that pakistan is a failed state.

  25. Balloon-o-Eight (unregistered) on May 6th, 2006 @ 2:20 pm

    Guys, please don’t loose your morals, atleast, here…

    @Bambal Khan: for the sake of your information; ‘Taj Mahal’ & ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ both have failed miserably in Pakistan. In fact, they worked as a catalyst for bringing movie-goers to cinemas for recently released Pakistani movie ‘Majajan’ that has proved to be biggest hit of the year so far.
