Mahesh Bhatt, Johar warned over working with Pak artists

Date:

MUMBAI: The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) film wing today threatened film makers Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt of ‘a befitting response', if they work with or release films featuring Pakistani artists.

“We had appealed to film industry not to work with Pakistani artists in the wake of the Uri attacks. However, Bhatt and Johar have not given a positive response to our appeal,” head of MNS Chitrapat Sena, Amey Khopkar said.

“If they work with any Pakistani artist, they should be prepared for a befitting response from us,” Khopkar told reporters.

The film workers association of the Raj Thackeray-led party had recently set a 48-hour deadline for all Pakistani artists working in to leave the country.

 

“We gave a 48-hour deadline to Pakistani actors and artists to leave India or MNS will push them out,” Khopkar had said.

He had even threatened to beat up Pakistani artists and those who cast them in their productions.

The MNS warning came in the wake of the heightened tension between the two nations, following the terrorist attack on an Army camp in Uri in in which 18 Army personnel were killed. (Agencies)
