After announcing financial help for the families of 19 soldiers who died in Uri attack, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar broke his silence on the ban on Pakistani artistes Thursday. In his video, Akshay Kumar talks about the families of the 18 soldiers who lost their lives in the Uri attack on 18th September, 2016.
He said , “Today I am not talking as a Bollywood star or a celebrity, I am talking as a son of an army man. For the past few days, people have been debating and arguing and asking for proof about surgical strikes, few are demanding ban on artistes, while a few fear that there might be a war.”
Since the Indian Motion Pictures’ Artists Association (IMPPA) decided to ban all Pakistani artists and technicians from working in India. Also Bollywood celebrities and filmmakers Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt and actor Salman Khan have said that art and politics should not be mixed.
Also bollywod actors Kangana Ranaut and Ranbir Kapoor have given rather impersonal reactions to the whole debate.
Bollywood actor Akshay has now judged such debates in his video on that he shared on Facebook:
“Arey sharam karo…these debates can happen later, first realize that people have already lost their lives at the border. 19 jawans soldiers died during the attack and a 24-year-old jawan Nitin Yadav died in Baramulla attack. Are families of soldiers, or the families of our thousands of jawans, worried whether a movie will release or not? Whether a Pakistan artiste will be banned? No. They are worried about their future.”
He also said that, these jawan soldiers are guarding us and that’s why we are alive today. If they are not there to guard us, Hindustan will not be exist. Jai Hind…
We are agree with Akshay’s statement.
Hats off to Indian Army…
