Veteran actress and politician Hema Malini says she appreciates the work of Pakistani actors but cannot say if they should work in India or not. Asked about her view on the ban on Pakistani artistes in India, Hema Malini, a BJP MP, said: “I don’t want to comment much on this controversial question.

“As an artiste, I can appreciate their work. But whether they should stay here or not, I can’t comment,” she added. Hema Malini was launching a new campaign of the brand Kent RO.
The Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association has decided to ban Pakistani artistes from working in Indian movies following a terror attack on Indian troops in Jammu and Kashmir that left 19 soldiers dead.
Meanwhile, Adnan Sami, who recently received his Indian nationality, has been making news for his pro-Indian statements on different occasions. Now, the singer is trending for his statement which hints at the Pakistani actors who chose to remain silent instead of condemning the attack of Uri.
“If your host has extended you a warm welcome, and suddenly a fire breaks out in (his) house, do you just run away? I feel they should have condemned the attack,” Adnan said at an event pointing out that he too had condemned the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai.
The musician equated the Army’s surgical strike across the LoC to an individual having to enter his/her neighbour’s house and clean out their garbage because the neighbour refused to.
Taking a strong stand on his statement, Adnan said it is important to understand that the strike took place to eliminate terror camps, irrespective of which side of the border it is and even said that Pakistan should thank India and Indian army for a brilliant, successful, strategic and mature strike against terrorism in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.
