Shiv Sena has banned Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan from entering the state of Maharashtra because they are Pakistanis. The party had earlier banned Ghulam Ali from performing in the state and now they have prohibited the actors.
The Chitrapat Sena General Secretary said,
We have taken a stand not to allow any Pakistani actor, cricketer or performer to step on Maharashtra soil. Shiv Sena won’t let the Pakistani actors in the films — Mahira Khan (Raees) and Fawad Khan (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Kapoor & Sons) – promote the films in Maharashtra. We are not really bothered about who is signing these Pakistanis in their film. Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Shah Rukh Khan etc. are responsible citizens and they should not cast Pakistanis in their films.
Shah Rukh, Karan, Farhan are you listening? :( :(
