On Friday, Salman Khan entered the ongoing war of words about banning Pakistani artists from the Hindi film industry by saying that art and terrorism shouldn’t be mixed and Pakistani artists aren’t terrorists.

The statement invited backlash from the Shiv Sena on Saturday who said that Salman Khan too should migrate to Pakistan if he likes the Pakistani actors so much.

Speaking at an event in Delhi on Friday, Khan said, “They are artistes, not terrorists. It’s the government who gives them work permits and visas. Art and terrorism should not be mixed.”

Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande said, “Salman Khan needs to be taught a lesson. If he has so much love for Pakistani artists, he should migrate there.”

Salman Khan made the statement a day after the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) passed a unanimous resolution at the annual general meeting, appealing to all their members to “henceforth, not to work with any artistes, singers or technicians from Pakistan until the situation of hostilities between Pakistan and India subsides and the Government of India declares that all is well with Pakistan and India.”

Khan spoke out against the ban, which was first proposed the MNS after the Uri terror attack. Channel Zee Zindagi, which used to exclusively broadcast Pakistani shows, also changed the line up of the channel by removing Pakistani shows altogether.

    We will be too happy to see him off from a port of his choosing. And while at that can't he give lift to that one whose wife wants to settle abroad or may be a few Congis and leftists who simply flare up and bring in Modi's name, whether he is connected or not.

      There is too much of D's hold and that is how these s were brought in, otherwise is there any dearth of Indian artists. And at our end these actors have grown far too big than their shoes. One starts waning every time he is stopped at American airports, others want to settle abroad. We should say thank you and bid them good bye for ever.
