Boney Kapoor’s Maturity & Experience Should Realize This Is Not The Right Time To Cast Pakistani Actors: BJP Spokesperson



The news report from Pakistan that two of their tv/film actors Adnan Siddiqui and SajalAli would be coming to India shortly to shoot for the new Sridevi starrer Mom was met by disbelief  shock and dismay by the film industry.

Just months ago in keeping with the deteriorating relations between  India and Pakistan, a blanket ban had been imposed on all Pakistani artises’ entry into India eventuating in  protests against the presence of Fawad Khan in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Mahira Khan in Raees. The objections were waived aside under the assurance that no more Pakistani artistes will be entertained by the entertainment industry in India until relations between the two countries improve.

Now the jubilant  reports from Pakistan of two artistes joining the cast and crew of producer Boney Kapoor’s Mom has  caused some serious embarrassment in political circles.

Commenting on the development the BJP’s spokesperson Shaina NC said, “First of all,this report has not been confirmed by Mr Boney Kapoor.We do hope it’s not true. Secondly the entry in India of Pakistani artistes is at the moment nearly impossible as no visas are being granted to Pakistanis except for emergencies.In case it is true we would  like to gently point out the insensitivity of considering Pakistani artistes for Bollywood at a time when relations between the two countries have  hit rock bottom.”

Shaina asks  the entire entertainment industry to desist from delving into derived . “Why so we need to get talent from Pakistan when we have so much talent in India? There are so many hopeful aspirants hovering in Bollywood waiting for a chance.Why deprive them of their jobs?I think a producer of Boney Kapoor’s experience and maturity should realize this is not the right time to cast Pakistani artistes.”
