Roadies Revolution: Saqib Khan Aims To Change Negative Image Of Kashmiri’s

Kashmiri youngster Saqib Khan is winning hearts on reality TV, and he says his aim is to break the image of people in his state as stone-pelters. Saqib has developed a sizeable fan base as a contestant on MTV Roadies Revolution. He is yet to resume shoot but a look at his audition before the lockdown shows how he wants fellow Indians to welcome people of Kashmir with open arms. Saqib Khan had won over all of India when, during his audition, he introduced himself saying: “Hi, I am from Kashmir and I am not a stone-pelter.” Saqib Khan, who has lived in Kashmir for 25 years, considers protests, curfews and shutdowns to be normal things in his state. He adds that Roadies is one show where caste, colour, creed or religion don’t matter.
