'Will banning Pakistani actors stop terrorism'

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

With the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena asking Pakistani artistes to leave India in wake of the Uri terror attack, actor Varun Dhawan has expressed that it is the government which should decide if terrorism can be stopped by such bans.

The Raj Thackeray-led party recently asked Pakistani artistes like Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan to leave India, failing which the shooting of their films would be stalled.

When asked about this, Varun said, "I'll follow what the government of India says. Whatever the government of India says, woh sar aakho par. The attacks which happened on our jawans are horrible, my heart goes out to them."

The 'Dilwale' actor says a mandate to ban Pakistani actors, if at all, must come from the government if they feel this is a solution to curb terrorism.

"I totally stand with the government of India, but this should come from the government. If they are are taking any steps, then what after that? If terrorism can be stopped by banning actors then they should do it. But that is something the government needs to decide first," he said at the 'India Nightlife Convention Awards'.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra stated that artistes from across the border are not responsible for terror acts, they often get trapped in these things.

"This problem is real. Jo ye activities hoti hai (Because of these activities), somewhere rest of the innocent people get trapped in this, including the artistes. Artistes are not doing all of this but in this fire they get trapped.

"I say no, an artiste should be kept out of this, how can you involve the artiste' but if you look at the larger picture, mothers have lost their children, sisters have lost their brothers. The sole breadwinner of the family died in the camp. The nation will get angry. And it will come out somewhere," he said.
