Mumbai:Scriptwriter Salim Khan has taken a jibe at those who have criticised his actor son Salman Khan and director Karan Johar for opposing the demand for a ban on Pakistani artistes working in Bollywood.
While Salman had recently said that Pakistani actors who come to India are artistes and not terrorists, Karan had said banning these artistes was not a solution to terrorism.
Both have received backlash from various sections, particularly Raj Thackeray’s MNS.
Taking to Twitter, Salim wrote, “Breaking news Saeed, Lakhvi & Masood replaced by Salman Khan, Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar & (Sitaram) Yechury on the most wanted list of Times Now as these people are a big threat to the unity of our country.
“Take heart gentlemen at least you are in the job of entertaining people rather than in a job of shouting screaming hurting & humiliating people.
“Mr Yechury careful, talking of peace will make you a traitor. Mr Bhatt our country has no dearth of intense and dramatic actors on TV then why look across the border,” the veteran writer said in a series of tweets.
Meanwhile, Bhatt, who had earlier posted a letter on his Twitter handle, saying “kill terrorists, not talks”, today said that he would urge the Pakistani actors to condemn the terror strike in Uri.
“I appeal to Pak stars to join India and condemn terror attacks where our people have bled and lost lives. With folded hands and bent knees, I urge Fawad and all actors to condemn terror when it happens on our soil.
