WEB DESK: Central Board of Film Certification India (CBFC) chief Pahlaj Nihalani has said that by banning Pakistani artists, India will face the loss.
Nihalani told ANI that film director and producer Karan Johar signed Pakistani actors when relations between India and Pakistan were good and now it would be an injustice to stop the release of their film now.
“Why are we talking about the artists? Instead, we should talk about India and Pakistan. To give a visa to any Pakistani is the sole decision of the government, and we as producers and actors, are saying they are not terrorists and that art and culture should never come in between,” Nihalani said.
“The way our country was developing relations with Pakistan, the same way Karan Johar and Shahrukh khan had accepted the Pakistani actors, and now, this film should be released and should not face difficulties, because through this, not only will these actors suffer losses, but also the nation and the film industry will suffer,” he added.
