The ongoing Indo-Pak issue in itself has become a topic of discussion. B-town actors are giving stark comments leading to division amongst actors.SALMAN KHAN AND NANA PATEKAR
We already mentioned how Salman Khan and Karan Johar were in favour of Pak actors working in Bollywood.
Post which Abhijeet Bhattacharya lashed out at Salman Khan and blamed him for supporting terrorism.
All these issues came into light post the disastrous Uri attacks. News about banning Pakistani artists or doing away with any scenes in films that involve them has been doing the rounds.
However, Nana Patekar spoke in length over this ongoing issue and was of the opinion that ‘Actors don't matter, the country does.'
He further stated, “According to me, everything else comes later, my country comes first. Actors are nothing in front of the country. We have no value. I was in the army for a while and I know that the biggest heroes are our soldiers. Actors are very ordinary and fake so don't give much importance to what we say. You understood who I'm referring to? Actors keep talking about issues, don't listen to them much.'
He further went on to say, “They don't deserve so much importance. If someone does not respect our soldiers, I won't respect them.'
And lastly he spoke about Salman stating, “Salman said that the government has given Pakistani artists visa and that they are not terrorists. He is correct, but what I am trying to say is that when there is an ongoing war between two countries, we should part ways. When there won't be war, we will adhere by the political decision.”
