I do not support Pak artistes working here: Hema Malini

Thursday, October 06, 2016

A day after steering clear of the controversy surrounding the ban on Pakistani artists in India, actress-politician Hema Malini today made her stand clear saying she does not support their presence in Bollywood.

The actress, who is also BJP MP from Mathura, said she will always stand by the soldiers, who are fighting for the country. “I would like to say that I am 100 per cent with our jawans who are fighting and dying for our country do not support Pak artistes working here. Jai Hind!,” Malini wrote.

Praising the India defence services' efforts, the 67-year-old actress said people should not ask for the proof of the surgical strike. “Our army has done a great job with the surgical strikes and the whole country should be supportive of them. Why ask for proof of action? Unheard of!”

Malini, however, had tried to play safe on the issue yesterday, saying, “As an artiste, I appreciate their work but I don't want to comment on whether they should live here or leave this country. Artistes are artistes whether they are from Pakistan or India. But it is unfortunate that they are from Pakistan. I must say that they are good artistes. They have performed well here in India,” she had said.

There has been a growing demand to ban Pakistani artistes like Fawad and Mahira Khan in the wake of Uri terror attack.
