If you think Pakistani stars are keeping mum about terror attacks, listen to what ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ star Mawra Hocane has to say about the whole issue.
Mawra wrote on her Twitter, “I strongly condemn all terror attacks. We must realise that a life lost is a LIFE LOST! The world needs to stand together against terrorism!”
Though she does not refer specifically to the Uri attack it is clear what she is referring to.
The actress also wants India and Pakistan to come closer.
After the Uri attacks that saw 18 Indian soldiers losing their lives to terrorism, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) had given a 48-hour ultimatum to Pakistani artistes to leave the country or get ready to be kicked out, forcing actors like Fawad Khan to fly back to Pakistan.
Things got messier when Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA) announced a ban on Pakistani artistes and technicians for an indefinite period until normalcy returns. Though many Indian artistes have so far voiced their perspectives on the attacks, no Pakistani artiste has spoken out on the issue so far except Mawra Hocane who condemned the terror attacks.
We are not sure whether the Pakistani public will take her comments lightly.
Pakistani-origin singer Adnan Sami who became an Indian citizen recently was trolled by Pakistanis on social media labelling him as a “traitor” for his pro-India comments.
MNS Chief, Raj Thackeray had vehemently criticised Salman, Om and Karan Johar for opposing the ban. MNS has also threatened to stop the release of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Raees’ which features Pakistani actors Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan respectively. Eventually, the release date of ‘Raees’ got postponed.
In an interview, Raj Thackeray had said, “We have asked the theatres to not release their movie, we must teach them a lesson, the producers are more at fault than those artists.” – CINEWS
