Won’t allow airing of any movie with Pakistani artistes unless their parts removed, says MSN

The MNS on Friday had issued an ultimatum to Pakistani artistes working in India to leave the country within the next 48 hours or risk being beaten up.

Upping its ante against Pakistani artistes in India, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has said that it will not allow the airing of movies they have worked in until they are replaced or their roles chopped off.

“We do not have anything against Karan Johar or Shahrukh Khan. However, if they want to ensure the airing of their films, they should either replace the Pakistani actors or chop off their parts from the film,” MNS leader Ameya Khopkar said.

Khopkar claimed that for the MNS, love for the motherland took precedence over every thing and the party would not budge from its stand of protesting against Pakistani actors. “We had given Pakistani artistes 48 hours to leave the country. Today, not a single Pakistani artiste is in the country,” Khopkar said.

The MNS on Friday had issued an ultimatum to Pakistani artistes working in India to leave the country within the next 48 hours or risk being beaten up. “When our soldiers are being killed on the borders by Pakistan, why should we host their actors here? We warn all Pakistani actors to leave India in the next 48 hours. If they do not do so, MNS activists will go to places where they are shooting and give them a thrashing,” Khopkar had said.

The party denied reports that it had received calls from actor Salman Khan to withdraw the protests. “All these reports about Salman Khan having called up Raj Thackeray are false,” MNS leader Shalini Thackeray said.
