Shelar for no work permits, visas to Pak artistes; writes to

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

unit chief Ashish Shelar today demanded that Pakistani artistes should neither get work permits or visas in India.

He has penned a letter to External Affairs Minister in this regard.



"If Pakistani actors are not going to get any work here then there is no point in giving them any work permits or visas," Shelar has written in the letter.

The leader welcomed the Cinema Owners Associations decision not to exhibit any film having Pakistani actors saying the association has displayed its national pride.

The Association has taken the decision in light of the surgical strike carried out by the army and the resultant public opinion, he said.

"Even noted playback singer Asha Bhosale and several other artists have voiced their opposition to Pakistani artistes coming here for work," Shelar added.

Pakistani actor Fawad Khan starrer "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is set to release on October 28, while another Pakistani actor Mahira Khan starrer "Raees" is slated to be released on January 26.

Raj-Thackeray-led MNS has already issued a warning that it will not allow the release of the two films.

The Centre however has no plans to revoke the visas granted to Pakistani artistes working in Bollywood notwithstanding the current tensions with that country.

"There is no proposal to revoke the visas granted to Pakistani artistes working in India," a senior Home Ministry official said.
