It was just yesterday that Salman Khan attended an event in the capital and gave statements in support of the Pakistani actors. He said that these artists are not terrorists, and are given official permission by the government to come to work in the country.

This statement however did not down well with MNS chief Raj Thackeray, who slammed the actor. “Is there a dearth of talent in India that we need to borrow artistes from Pakistan? These people are only concerned about their movies doing well in Pakistan… The bullets that our soldiers face are real, they are not filmy,” Raj said in a TV interview.


The artists are, for time being, banned from working or performing in the country. They have all gone back resulting in the cancellation of Pakistani singers Shafqat Amanat Ali and Atif Aslam’s concerts in Bengaluru and Gurgaon as well.

Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association has however assured that this ban will not affect the films ready to release.
