Mumbai: Hitting back on those who are creating hype over the ban of Pakistani artistes’ controversy, Salman Khan's father Salim Khan used sarcastic tweets to share his displeasure.

Salim Khan on Monday took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and sarcastically said that people who will be talking about peace will be tagged as traitors.

Post India's surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC), Maharashtra based political party, MNS had threatened all Pakistani actors to leave the country or else be ready to face the consequences.

Amidst the controversy, Bollywood showed a mixed response on banning Pakistani actors in Indian films. However, the 'Being Human' actor went all out and supported Pakistani artists.

Also earlier in the day, Bollywood actor Nana Patekar on the contrary supported Indian army on this issue. In a video, Nana slammed the scuffle over Pakistani actors and said that the country comes above everything else.

“Pakistani actors and others come later, first comes my country. I don’t know anyone other than my country and would never like to know. Actors are like bed bugs in front of the country, we don’t have any worth," Nana Patekar said in the video that went viral on social media platforms.

“No hero can be better than the soldiers. We actors are just common people; the real heroes are our soldiers. Don’t pay attention to what we say, don’t give this much importance to anyone. And those who keep on speaking, they don’t deserve that much importance," he adds.
