In the wake of recent Uri attack, in which 20 Indian Army soldiers were killed by terrorists, the Motion Picture Producers Association today  passed a resolution to ban Pakistani actors from the Indian film industry.

“IMPPA in their 87th annual general meeting passed (a resolution that) no Pakistani will be hired by their producer members forever,” producer TP Aggarwal, the president of IMPPA said.

Producer Ashoke Pandit, a member of the IMPPA, said, “IMPPA paid homage to the martyrs who were killed in Uri. It, therefore, felt its responsibility towards the nation and passed a resolution banning Pakistani actors and technicians in India till normalcy returns. For IMPPA, nation comes first.”

IMPPA’s decision came a day after the Indian Army lauched a scathing surgical strike to destroy seven terror launch pads across the LoC.

Last week, Raj Thackeray-led MNS issued a 48-hour ultimatum to Pakistani artistes and actors including Fawad Khan and Ali Zafar, to leave India by September 25 or else they would be pushed out. Recently the concerts of Pakistani singers Shafqat Amanat Ali and Atif Aslam scheduled in Bengaluru and Gurugram, respectively, were cancelled.

Moreover, with tensions in Pakistan soaring there is no likelihood of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story biopic releasing in Pakistan. It is one of the most awaited sporting movies ever but it has fallen victim to the war-talk between the 2 countries, which has increased after the terror attack in Uri by the terrorists from across the border.
