• Naseeruddin Shah's opinion about the ban on Pakistani actors

    24th October 2016

    The attacks in Uri, Jammu & Kashmir left a deep impact on the whole nation, the film industry was the most to suffer from it. Post these attacks Pakistani artists were banned to work in Indian films. The films which consisted Pak actors and which are just few days away from its release suffered too. Films like 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', 'Raees' and 'Dear Zindagi' are now given a green signal and will be released safely in India.

    Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah was asked about the issue at an event recently. According to a leading daily, he was quoted saying, "The film industry is an easy target. They (MNS) have as much fun targeting the industry as they would have while watching films made by Bollywood. We haven't broken diplomatic ties with Pakistan, nor are we in the state of war, or have sealed our borders. Only artistes who aim to spread the message of love and peace are being attacked."

    "According to me, the brave hearts (MNS) who are threatening them (makers and multiplexes) with dire consequences should fight the enemies on the border, kill Pakistani intruders. What's the point of threatening defenseless/harmless artistes?" the source added.
