The controversy regarding the ban on Pakistani actors is dividing the Bollywood. While Salman Khan supported the Pak actors working in India, Nana Patekar slammed those who were supporting. Recently, even Ajay Devgn spoke up about the matter and his statement was pretty strong in favour of the ban.
Ajay was asked during an interview about the boycott of Pakistani actors and he said, “You can’t clap with one hand. Talks have been going on. You keep talking to people but then they come kill you. How can you still continue a dialogue? I want to see you getting into a fight with somebody and after he gives you a tight slap on your face, let’s have a talk. What will your reaction be instantly to retaliate or talk?” We totally agree with you. Now is not the time to forward our left cheek if we get slapped on our right. It’s time show them what India can do.
When asked if he intends to work with Pakistani actors, Ajay said, “Not at the moment.” He further added, “Country comes before money. If the country breaks into mess what will we do with the money.”
Initially, there were reports that there is a Pakistani actor in Shivaay which the actor rubbished completely. Meanwhile, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and the Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association have demanded a ban on Pakistani artistes working in India. Ajay Devgn's Shivaay will clash with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which features Fawad Khan.
Yesterday Akshay Kumar also shared an emotional message saying that A jawan at the border doesn’t care what’s happening to movies.
