Om Puri, the national award-winning actor has been slapped with a sedition case for insulting Uri Attack martyrs. He said, “Did anybody force them (the soldiers) to join the army?”. The veteran actor appeared on different channels and later clarified by saying that he will personally go and apologies, also that he deserves punishment.
In aftermath of Uri attack India conducted surgical strike, which every Indian feels proud of has divided the whole of Bollywood into two parts. One who is supporting the cultural exchange between the countries and other advocating the total isolation of Pakistani artists. Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Ali Zafar etc are some of the name that has been dragged from across the border and there was huge demand either criticise Sep 18 Uri attack or leave our nation. The ban has totally divided the glamour industry because of emotions that are all roiled up of every citizen of the country.
Fawad Khan finally broke his silence, but instead of condemning Uri attack he has talked about “Peaceful world”.
Really Mr. Fawad Afzal Khan?
Anupam Kher, Randeep Hudda, Renuka Sahane, Nana Patekar, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Ashok Pandit, Madhur Bhandarkar, Javed Akhtar are some of the names openly questioning their silence over our 18 soldier death. Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Saeed Akhtar Mirza are some of the big names which say art and terrorism should not be mixed.
The whole controversy started when Raj Thackeray led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has given 48 Hours “direct threat” to Pakistani artist to leave India. Shiv Sena has also joined MNS by giving advice to Salman Khan for leaving India due to his love towards Pakistan.
