New Delhi: Things are not going well for Pakistani artists after the Uri terror attack in India. You will be shocked to know that Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has now given a 48-hour ultimatum to Pakistani celebrities to leave India. Recently, this act of the MNS faced strong criticism by filmmakers Vikram Bhatt and Hansal Mehta.
“We should concentrate on making sure that Pakistan is declared a terrorist state. That should be our effort. This (asking Pak actors to leave) is like trivialising the issue– whether artists or cricket should be allowed nor not… How does that matter? What matters is that people are dying, we have been constantly suffering… And the only thing we do is ban artists!” Vikram told PTI.
Even Hansal expressed his thoughts by slamming MNS on Twitter.
The Raj Thackeray-led party has also warned that it would not permit the release of any Bollywood films having Pakistani actors, including the upcoming ‘Aye Dil Hai Muskhil’ and ‘Raees’.
