Critising Salman Khan’s statement regarding Pakistani artistes, Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande has said, “Salman Khan needs to be taught a lesson, If he has so much love for Pakistani artists, he should migrate there.”
Earlier, Shiv Sena and MNS had issued warnings to Pakistani artistes, to leave for Pakistan or they would be forced to do so, following that Salman Khan jumped into the controversy on Friday, by saying that art and terrorism shouldn’t be mixed and Pakistani artistes aren’t terrorists. While attending an event in Delhi he said, “They are artistes, not terrorists. It’s the government who gives them work permits and visas. Art and terrorism should not be mixed.”
A day before Salman Khan’s statement, Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) had passed a resolution, appealing to all their members to “henceforth, not to work with any artistes, singers or technicians from Pakistan until the situation of hostilities between Pakistan and India subsides and the government declares that all is well between the two nations.”
Zee Zindagi, a popular tv channel which exclusively broadcasted some of Pakistani daily soaps has also completely stopped the broadcast.
