Sara Loren fears for life in India after MNS' 48 hrs deadline

Sara Loren fears for life in India after MNS' 48 hrs deadline

Among the actors are well known Bollywood stars like Fawad Khan, Ali Zafar and Mahira Khan, all of whom are slated to appear in upcoming films.

However, the Mumbai police on Friday said that all foreign nationals, including Pakistanis who are in Mumbai with valid documents provided by the government of India, need not worry.

"In this 125 crore Indian population, can't you find a single Indian actor to cast in your films that you import people from a place like Pakistan, a country with which we all are facing a problem". "We would also issue letters to prominent film production houses asking them why they are hiring Pakistani actors when there is ample talent available in India", said Ms. Thackeray.

Bharti also said that if required, the police would also provide adequate security to them.

Tension between India and Pakistan has reached an all-time high post-Uri terror attack, where 18 Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistan-based terrorists.

The MNS order would also apply to sportspersons and singers, he added.

The Jeep Compass for India will be driven by a 172.3hp 2.0-litre Fiat Multijet II diesel engine which will be localised. The vehicle is expected to get eight-inch infotainment system and features like climate control and push-button start.


Even in the past, the MNS and the Shiv Sena have opposed the presence of Pakistani artistes and players in India. And this ain't a veiled threat it is a direct threat to them.

"They earn here and pay tax in Pakistan which is a big income to that country and then they celebrate after terror attacks on our country", the letter read.

MNS Chitrapat Sena president Amey Khopkar warned Pakistani actors that they would face serious consequences in India if they do not leave within 48 hours.

Talking about if director Karan Johar should be given protection, Sinha believes that these things have happened in the past and have never escalated to that level of violence. We have always shook hands with Pakistan and in return what have they done? He has no need to speak about Pakistan.

In January this year, the Raj Thackeray-headed political organization had threatened to disrupt a proposed concert by ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali, if it was held in Mumbai.
