As everyone are well aware that the Khans have a strong hold in Bollywood industry, and so Saif Ali Khan has smartly put the ball in the government’s court. Saif has said that the Indian film industry is open to talent across the border but it is for the government to decide who will be allowed to work here.
Saif is the latest Indian celebrity to speak out on the demand of ban on Pakistani artistes in India by MNS. “This (cross cultural exchange) should definitely be encouraged. The industry is open to world talent, especially from across the border. But the government has to decide these things,” said Saif at the GQ Men of the year awards.
“We are artistes and we will talk about love and peace. But the government has to take such decisions about law and who to allow to work here and who isn’t,” added Saif.
Bollywood stars like Karan Johar, Hansal Mehta, Anurag Kashyap, Varun Dhawan and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra have earlier expressed their views on the demand of boycott of Pakstani artistes in India.
The statement came up in the wake of Uri attack, last week the party threatened Pakistani artistes like Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan to leave India, saying otherwise the shooting of their films would be stalled.
