Indian film maker Mahesh Bhatt has been raising his voice since IMPPA (Indian Media Picture Producers Association) decided to ban the Pakistani artists from working in India. Many famous stars like Mahira Khan, Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan have been affected by the ban since, they were to complete some projects in India. According to Mid-Day, Mahesh Bhatt feels that Indian government should deal with the terrorism in a different way than to ban the Pakistani Artists.
“The idea of it could incur the wrath of political parties.The Central government has to come up with a solution, if they wish to rebuild relations razed to the ground prior to the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. In my opinion, cultural space must be kept alive,” said Mahesh Bhatt.
Mahesh Bhatt and many other Bollywood stars have opposed the ban but IMPPA certainly has no plans to lift it.
