MNS Chief Raj Thackeray takes on Salman for supporting Pakistani artistes

Amid the controversy surrounding the inclusion of Pakistani actors in Indian cinema, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Saturday turned the heat on Bollywood actor Salman Khan and threatened to ban his movies if he continued supporting artistes from Islamabad.

“Jawans are fighting for us at borders. What’ll happen if they decide to put down their weapons? Who’ll guard the borders? Salman Khan? Bollywood? These artists (Salman Khan) should realise ‘Nation first’. If they have so many problems, we will ban their movies too,” Thackeray said.

Further escalating his attack on Khan, Thackeray said when Tamil Nadu and Karnataka can stand up for the Cauvery issue, why can’t the actors stand for the country.

“It is nothing but business to them. Are we short of artists? They say art doesn’t have boundary. When Tamil Nadu and Karnataka protest over Cauvery water, Tamil artistes came on the road including Rajnikanth. When they can stand for the rights of their states, why can’t these artists stand for the country,” he added.

The MNS chief asserted that it is important to stand united amid such adversities.

“In a country with 1.26 billion population, you can’t find talent? You have to borrow it from Pakistan? Who are they? Do they have any respect in their own country,” he added.
