Mumbai: Speaking on the recent ban on Pakistani artistes in India, Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani on Tuesday said that “He is an Indian first”. He said he is not an intellectual and doesn’t understand all this, but for him, India comes first.
“I am absolutely clear about one thing – that for me it is always country first. I am not an intellectual so I don’t understand all these. But undoubtedly like for all Indians, India is first for me,” Ambani said.
Ambani was answering the questions from an audience on the ban on Pak actors on the ‘Off the Cuff’ show organised by The Print, a digital media outfit owned by senior journalists Shekhar Gupta and Barkha Dutt.
Asked if he has any inclination towards joining politics, the Reliance chairman replied in the negative.
“I am not made for politics,” Ambani said.
The ban on the Pakistani actors came in the wake of growing tensions between India and Pakistan after the September 18 Uri attack in which 19 soldiers were killed.
