The chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan has won million of hearts not only in the county but across the world with his simple and amazing speech after his party’s victory in Wednesday’s general polls.
His speech was all over social media and all news channels and that’s when India’s acting legend Rishi Kapoor applauded him for his thoughts and speech about Indo-Pak relations in his first address to the nation.
“Well-spoken Imran Khan”, the actor tweeted on Thursday.
Well spoken Imran Khan. I have been saying whatever you said on all channels past two days regarding India-Pakistan! I hope you succeed in making your “Mulk” have good relations with my “Mulk” pic.twitter.com/YCe741vW22

He hopes that Imran Khan’s speech can clear out paths for better Indo-Pak relations.
On India, Imran Khan said: “I was saddened in the last few days, how the media in India portrayed me as a Bollywood film villain. It seemed like India feared everything bad would happen if Imran Khan came into power. I am the Pakistani who has the most familiarity with India, I have been all over that country.”
“I think it will be very good for all of us if we have good relations with India. We need to have trade ties, and the more we will trade, both countries will benefit. The unfortunate truth is that Kashmir is a core issue, and the situation in Kashmir, and what the people of Kashmir have seen in the last 30 years. They have really suffered.
“Pakistan and India’s leadership should sit at a table and try to fix this problem. It’s not going anywhere,” he added.
“We are at square one right now [with India]. If India’s leadership is ready, we are ready to improve ties with India. If you step forward one step, we will take two steps forward. I say this with conviction, this will be the most important thing for the subcontinent, for both countries to have friendship,” he continued.
