Kabir Khan: Keeping quiet on issues dangerous

Kabir Khan is a film director-screenwriter-cinematographer who has made Kabul Express, New York, Ek Tha Tiger, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Phantom

Mumbai: Filmmaker Kabir Khan has said that he is advised not to speak often on contemporary issues, but he believes that if there is a problem in speaking, keeping quiet is equally dangerous.

The filmmaker said that it was important for people with similar ideology to speak and the country could not be left to be ‘devastated at the hands of negative forces’.

He said, “In my whole life I was advised not to speak on these things. But I think we should speak. If we do not speak for each other then no one will speak for you.”

Kabir said, “Those who think in a similar way, if they keep quiet and negative forces rise in any society or country, then they are responsible for it. Speaking in a way is as dangerous as it is to be silent as well.”

Kabir Khan is an Indian film director, screenwriter and cinematographer. He started his career working in documentary films. He then made his first feature film in 2006: Kabul Express. It was followed by New York (2009), Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015), and Phantom (2015).
