The banning of Pakistani artists from working in India has become a crucial debate in Bollywood industry. After Uri terror attack, political parties demanded a ban on Pakistani actors and also threatened that if they are allowed to work here, the shooting and the release of their film will be stalled. The artists including Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan, and others were asked to leave the country in the given time or they will be pushed out. Following the protest, the Indian motion picture producers’ association (IMPPA) banned Pakistani actors and technicians from working in Bollywood.
The issue has become serious by all means and the political party has also stated that Shah Rukh Khan’s film ‘Raees’ which stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan will not have a smooth release in the nation. Additionally, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ which stars Fawad Khan is also going to face problems.
As earlier we reported, both the films still have hopes to have a smooth release. IMPPA has requested MNS spokespersons Amey Khopkar and Shalini Thackeray to allow the release of ADHM and Raees without any trouble and ban as the shooting of the film was already done before the ban was imposed. Many including Shah Rukh Khan and makers of the film might be delighted with the news but there is still something bothering them.
