Shiv Sena on Pakistani Actors
Shiv Sena says that Salman Khan should migrate to Pakistan:- After the tensed relationship between India and Pakistan, MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) which is led by Raj Thackeray had said that they will push out Pakistani actors from India if they don’t leave by themselves. The party also made it clear that it will ensure that no films with Pakistani actors are released in India.
Following this, Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) passed a resolution saying that Pakistani actors should be banned from the film industry. It said- “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.”
This resolution was met with a lot of disapproval from various actors. Salman Khan was amongst the few actors who disapproved of this move and said that- “They (Pakistani actors) are artists, not terrorists. It’s the government who gives them permission and visas. Art and terrorism should not be mixed.” He also talked about maintaining peace between India and Pakistan.
Shyam Benegal, a filmmaker in support of Pakistani actors said that they come here for projects and had nothing to do with their country’s government.
In retaliation to this comment made by Salman, Shiv Sena said- “Salman Khan needs to be taught a lesson. If he has so much love for Pakistani artists, he should migrate there.”
The tension can be seen even on television as Channel Zee Zindagi, a channel that used to air Pakistani shows has changed its format and has stopped the airing of Pakistani shows.
It is important the situation between India and Pakistan be resolved as soon as possible, so that artists do not suffer and also so that peace can prevail.
