We actors are just common people, the real heroes are our soldiers. Don’t pay attention to what we say, don’t give this much importance to anyone. And those who keep on speaking, they don’t deserve that much importance.”

Amid raging controversy over Pakistani actors’ participation in Bollywood, actor Nana Patekar’s comments on the issue has gone viral. In the wake of Uri attack and Pakistan’s denial to control terrorists operating from its territory, there have been demands to ban Pakistani actors in Bollywood.

Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirmann Sena had even threatened to beat up Pakistani actors if they didn’t leave. On Friday, actor Salman Khan raked up the controversy by expressing his support for Pakistan actors. He had said that they were just actors, not terrorists.

However, on Sunday, when a few journalists asked Nana Patekar about his comments on the issue, the veteran actor said: “Pakistani actors and others come later, first comes my country. I don’t know anyone other than my country and would never like to know. Actors are like bed bugs in front of the country, we don’t have any worth.”

Patekar even took a dig at Salman, without naming the star, “No hero can be better than the soldiers. We actors are just common people, the real heroes are our soldiers. Don’t pay attention to what we say, don’t give this much importance to anyone. And those who keep on speaking, they don’t deserve that much importance.”

Patekar’s comments have won the hearts of Twitterati. Here are what some of them said:

Let us see if other Bollywood actors would learn a lesson from Patekar and stop making controversial remarks at a time when it seems India-Pakistan tensions have escalated to a new level.
