Salman Khan speaks up in defence of Pakistani actors
He said that casting an actor is a completely creative decision of a producer. “If someone wants a Pakistani actor who can portray a role better, nobody can put a constraint. Bollywood has a huge number of fans in Pakistan and earns a good share of income from the neighbouring country,” said the 49-year-old.
Khan said the art and entertainment have no boundaries and they shouldn’t be mixed with politics.
Of the recent controversies over banning Pakistani artists from entering Maharashtra, Salman said: “Politics and art should not be mixed. This is not what common people want.”
“Now that everything is digital, Indians love to watch each and every entertainment show, including popular Pakistani shows. So, art and entertainment have no boundaries.
