Ranveer Singh Doesn’t Approve of Ban on Pakistani Artists


Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh retracted from his earlier statement in which he had claimed that if needed, then Pakistani artists should be banned.

The Gully Boy actor said that sports, arts and politics should be kept separate as they did not mix with terrorism and other issues.

“I am very cognisant that there is this school of thought that one should not mix art and sport with it, they are two different realms,” he said.

However, Ranveer said that he knew that Indian soldiers were giving sacrifices which he could not match.

“But at the same time, us as artists and sportsmen, we are not sacrificing the same way that some of our compatriots are. Art and sports are different realms. The boundaries should be different,” he said.

Bollywood producers have banned Pakistani artists from working in India after the Uri camp attack in which Indian soldiers were killed.

The ban was again enforced when 40 CRPF personnel were killed in Indian-held Kashmir on February 14, 2019.

India blamed the Jaish-e-Muhammad for being involved in the attack and accused Pakistan of harbouring the militants.

Pakistan vehemently denied the accusations and asked New Delhi for evidence for it to act on. However, on February 26, 2019, IAF jets violated Pakistan’s airspace and dropped payload after fleeing in haste.

On the next day, the two countries almost went to war when PAF planes downed two Indian aircraft and captured an IAF pilot, Abhinandan Varnathan.
