The recent terror attack in Uri is affecting the Indian cultural sphere like never before. While some of the film and television fraternity believe that Pakistani artistes should not be allowed to work here, rest feel that art should have no such boundary. Actor Salman Khan belongs to the latter group. Soon after he stated that banning Pakistani artistes was no solution, Salman faced a lot of backlash. Some even called him a traitor. Now, his father Salim Khan has opened up and took a sarcastic dig at the critics.
“Breaking news Saeed, Lakhvi & Masood replaced by Salman Khan Mahesh Bhatt Karan Johar & Yechury on the most wanted list of Times Now as these people are a big threat to the unity of our country. Take heart gentlemen at least you are in the job of entertaining people. rather than in a job of shouting screaming hurting & humiliating people. Mr Yechury careful, talking of peace will make you a traitor,” [sic] he wrote on his Twitter handle.
Ouch, that was strong!
