MUMBAI: The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), an Indian political party having radical roots, has threatened Bollywood film makers Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt of ‘a befitting response’, if they work with or release films featuring Pakistani artists.

“We had appealed to film industry not to work with Pakistani artists in the wake of the Uri attacks. However, Bhatt and Johar have not given a positive response to our appeal,” head of MNS Chitrapat Sena, Amey Khopkar said.

“If they work with any Pakistani artist, they should be prepared for a befitting response from us,” Khopkar said, according to Indian media reports.

The party had recently set a 48-hour deadline for all Pakistani artists working in India to leave the country.

This is not the first time Pakistan-based artists have been threatened by Mumbai’s political parties. Shiv Sena had told ghazal singer Ghulam Ali to cancel his performance in Mumbai.

It had also opposed hosting a cricket match in the city between India and Pakistan during the T20 World Cup. The Shiv Sena had also said it will obstruct promotions of Pakistani actors Fawad Khan’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and Mahira Khan’s Raees. - Samaa
