Pakistani actors back to their country has created a rift in the Hindi film industry. While a lot of celebrities like Salman Khan and many others have come out in support of Pakistani actors saying that they should be allowed to work in Bollywood, there are some of the opinion that they should be sent back. This comes right after MNs’ threat to Karan Johar who asked him to chop off Fawad Khan’s role from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Actress Kangana Ranaut recently voiced her opinion about the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena’s (MNS) ban on Pakistani artists and said that the nation is engulfed with emotions of loss of our soldiers, hence it is hard to be “objective” right now.
“Right now we are under grave emotions of the loss of the lives of our soldiers (our jawans and our sons). So the country is not in that (frame of mind). It’s very hard to be objective right now,” said the 30-year-old actress. Anticipating for peace, the Bullet Rani star added, “But we hope that the love and art prevails. Right now we can’t expect people to be objective. It’s such a big loss.” Earlier, the actress even avoided to answer the questions on the same at the GQ Awards 2016.
Speaking at an event in Delhi on Friday, Salman Khan said, “They are artistes, not terrorists. It’s the government who gives them work permits and visas. Art and terrorism should not be mixed.”
Salman Khan made the statement a day after the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) passed a unanimous resolution at the annual general meeting, appealing to all their members to “henceforth, not to work with any artistes, singers or technicians from Pakistan until the situation of hostilities between Pakistan and India subsides and the Government of India declares that all is well with Pakistan and India.”
