Khan gained international fame and a huge following for her roles in the films ‘Raees’ and Superstar, as well as numerous roles in television.
Khan said that a majority of refugees are being hosted by developing countries, and a sense of shared responsibility has yet to be achieved. “More needs to be done to support countries and communities which host large numbers of refugees,” she said.
