With the recent controversy about Pakistani actors leaving India, Bollywood has taken sides. While some Bollywood celebrities believe that Pakistani actors are artists and not terrorists, there are others who support MNS’ idea of banning actors who hail from our neighbouring country. Among them are acclaimed actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nana Patekar.
Nawaz And Nana Say That India Is Superior
In a recent press conference, when Siddiqui was quizzed about the recent controversial matter of the Indo-Pak ties, he was quick to reply that they should leave India. He went on to say that since the situation between both countries is very tense now, it is better for everybody that Pakistani actors leave the country. He said that now the matter is not about taking sides but thinking about our country since nothing is bigger than Mother India.
Moreover, when Nana Patekar was questioned about the issue, he spoke his heart out. The actor, who doesn’t like to mince his words said that the nation comes first for him. Neither does he know anything that is above India, nor would he like to know. Artistes are like termites before the country. Since the veteran actor has been a part of the Indian army for 2 years, he knows that our soldiers are the biggest heroes of the country.
Salman Said That Pakistani Actors Are Not Terrorists
He also took a dig at Salman Khan who came out in full support of Pakistani artists be saying that they are not terrorists. Patekar indirectly hinted at Khan and said that people should stop paying heed to actors who unnecessarily blabber about Pakistani actors. Such actors don’t deserve such importance hence our soldiers should be thought about, not such actors.
Recently, MNS chief, Raj Thackeray also showed his disapproval regarding Salman Khan’s comment, in spite of the fact that they are known to be good friends. He advised the actor to speak with responsibility.
