MUMBAI: Sources privy to Newspakistan.tv have been informed that Union Minister Babul Supriyo provokes the B-town actors to take actions against Pakistani artists working here.

In this regard, a source quoted Supriyo as saying, “Bollywood, as an industry, can influence people. If film stars take a stand, it will be good for India. Pakistani artists should not be encouraged to work in India.”

He further added that filmmakers promised to not hire artists across the border before the release of Karan Johar’s venture titled Ae Dil Hai Mushkil starring Fawad Khan however, no measures have been taken to fulfill the demands so far.

While giving harsh comments, Supriyo beams, “I think the mindset of solving the tension between India and Pakistan with cricket and music is no more applicable. Pakistan is a terrorist country. Our soldiers are being constantly targeted and killed along the border.”

Newspakistan.tv has earlier reported that Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s vocals have been deleted from an upcoming Indian movie titled Welcome to New York.

Whereas, filmmakers did not approach Pakistani actress Saba Qamar for the sequel of Hindi Medium and Momal Shaikh for the Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi.
