New Delhi: In the wake of threat issued against Pakistani actors working in Bollywood, actor Saif Ali Khan on Wednesday said that film industry is open to world’s talents, especially across borders.
He said the government has to decide law and order on the issue.
“We’re artists so we’ll talk about love and peace. Government must make decisions about law and who is allowed to work and who isn’t,” said Khan.
After the Uri attack where 18 Indian soldiers were killed, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) issued a threat against Pakistani actors working in Bollywood. The party warned that if the actors didn’t leave India by September 25, they would forcibly send them back.
MNS activists on Tuesday staged a protest outside the residence of filmmaker Karan Johar over his comment which they deemed as support towards Pakistan. He had said that the ban on Pakistani actors from India was not the solution to curb terrorism.
Pakistani actor Fawad Khan who will be starring in Johar flick “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” has already left the country. He is the most prominent Pakistani actor who was directly issued threats.
