Bollywood hotshot Salman Khan seems to be backing Pakistani actors who have been confronting serious feedback and a conceivable boycott after the Uri assault on an armed force camp in Jammu and Kashmir prompting the passing of 19 security strengths. On blacklist of Pakistani actors like Fawad Khan in Bollywood, Salman said, ”They are artistes not terrorists. It’s the government who gives them permits and visas.”
As far back as the September 18 assaults on the Army camp in Uri by Pakistani fear based oppressors, there have been brings from all over India for a restriction on Pakistani artistes working here. Mumbai-based Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) on Friday had even passed a determination to restriction Pakistani actors from the business in the wake of the Uri assault. In Mumbai, Raj Thackeray's MNS party had a week ago issued a 48-hour final proposal to Pakistani artistes and actors including Fawad Khan and Ali Zafar, to leave India or else they would be "pushed out".
Remarking on the surgical strikes India completed on psychological oppressors over the Line of Control, Salman said: “The ideal situation would have been of peace. Now when this has happened, then obviously there will be reaction to this action."
“In this day and this age, I think if we live with love and peace, then it will be better for everyone, especially for the common man.”
Salman Khan said,"Terrorists the na? Appropriate activity tha (They were terrorists, isn't that so? It was the proper action)."
Different actors, for example, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar additionally applauded the Indian Army on the surgical strikes directed along the Line of Control.
While there was backing for Pakistani artistes working in Bollywood from everywhere throughout the business, some have scrutinized their place in the nation, including CBFC boss Pahlaj Nihalani.
“Jab Pakistan humare kalakaron ko jagah nahi deta toh hum kyun sentimental ho jaayein? (When Pakistan doesn’t allow our actors to work in their country, why should we get sentimental?),” news agency ANI quoted Nihalani as saying.
The censor board chief though ruled out preventing the release of movies of producers who have cast Pakistani artists.
“Karan Johar and other filmmakers signed Pakistani actors when relations(India-Pak) were fine,so would be wrong to try & stop their film release now,” Nihalani added.
Meanwhile, MNS and Shiv Sena have continued to voice against Pakistani artistes working in Bollywood with MNS threatening violence against them.
“If we find any Pakistani artist working here, we will beat them up,” Amey Khopkar of MNS said on Friday.
“We have a population of 1.25 billion, why do we have to import artists from Pakistan?” said Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant regarding Pakistani artistes working in Bollywood.
Shiv Sena’s Subhash Desai even responded to Salman Khan’s statements on Friday saying,”Salman Khan should consult with his father Salim Khan before making such statements.”
