Bollywood actors Richa Chadda and Vir Das have also expressed concern over the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena’s threat asking the Pakistani actors to leave India or face consequences and said that an amicable and brotherly solution should be found to all problems.
When Richa was quizzed on the same at an event yesterday, she said, “If you feel that banning Zindagi channel and banishing the Pakistani actors from India will stop all these terror-attacks then do so. But can anyone give a guarantee about this?”
“Let the government handle this conflict. They know very well how to do it. Our Prime Minister and the army are strong enough to take proper step. I don’t think actors should be associated to it,” the ‘Sarbjit’ actress added.
Speaking on the same note, actor Vir Das stated that actors in this situation are some small fishes in a very large situation.
“It is a very complicated situation. Actors are very small fish in a very large situation. So if you are targeting a tension towards the actors, then you have to come up with a bigger solution on a larger level. I have always embraced brotherhood and friendship towards any nationality and the vice versa has happened. So I am hoping that an amicable, brotherly solution can be found to all problems,” he told media here.
The MNS’ orders, backed by the Shiv Sena, came after tension between the two Asian neighbours escalated to a new level post the killing of 18 Army personnel in a dastardly terror attack on an army base camp in Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
The party also warned that it would not allow the release of the upcoming Karan Johar’s flick ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushqil’ and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Raees’ as the movies star Pakistani actors Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan respectively.
When Richa was asked how this decision will affect the two films, she said, “I don’t think the movies will be affected by this decision. I wish for some peaceful solution to it, by the time of these movies’ release. I again will say, the artists should be kept away from this conflict.”
