Bollywood actor Nana Patekar on Monday, seemed to be in favour of the ban imposed on Pakistani artistes in India following the rising tensions with Pakistan ever since the Uri Attack.
“My country comes first. Artists are mere bugs compared to my nation,” Patekar said.
“Our real heroes are our jawans. Don’t pay heed to what we say, we are nothing in front of our jawans,” Patekar added.
Here is the video:
Bollywood actor Salman Khan had earlier opposed the ban which placed him at the centre of this controversy.
When asked if Pakistani actors should return to India, Patekar said, “My personal opinion is to let this matter get sorted out then, we can reconsider it.”
“When it is about Nation, nation should be kept first, art and border issue is secondary,” he further added.
