Pakistani actors and artists banned by Indian film industry
February 19, 2019
Leading governing body of the Indian film industry has decided not to work with Pakistani actors and artists anymore.
This decision has been taken by the All India Cine Workers Association in response to the recent attack on CRPF jawans that killed 40 soldiers
The suicide attack that killed 40 soldiers in Pulwama was carried out by Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed- JeM through a Kashmiri man.
All India Cine Workers Association has announced a complete ban on Pakistani actors and artists working in Indian film industry. In case the ban is not followed, organisations working with Pakistani artists will face strong action from the association.
Social media users are talking about the ban.
anita katyal @anitaakat tweeted," Replying to @MinhazMerchant This is just jingoistic doublespeak by the film industry. It should also ensure its our movies are not released in Pakistan. But, I guess, profiteering from Pakistan is ok."
Actor Ajay Devgn has also announced that his upcoming movie 'Total Dhamaal' will not be released in Pakistan.
Twitter user shared opinion on the announcements.
