Controversy surrounding the ban on Pakistani artists post the Uri attacks might have lost steam in India, at least at the moment, but it’s quite possible that the repercussions are being felt in the Pak film industry. Speaking about the same, popular Pakistani actor Adnan Sarwar, in his interaction with a Pak daily, expressed his grief saying, “art and artistic exchange should be above politics and war.” He also let in that if the ban continued, it might affect the Pakistani film industry. Adding that, “Pakistani cinema will not be able to absorb the current level of losses for very long. And Pakistan is years, if not decades away from producing quality films.”

Times Of India contacted industry insiders to get a sense of what they felt about the issue. Here’s what film producer Mukesh Bhatt had to say. “I feel sad for them. Because of someone else’s action, they are getting penalised in their own country. As a human being I feel sad for them. It’s like there’s a riot and the victim is getting blamed for it.”

Many recent films like Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ had to face the music for casting Pakistani actors, however, Abhinay Deo, the director of ‘Force 2’ feels that actors from any part in the world, shouldn’t be deprived of working in the Indian film industry due to political policies. “I can’t speak for them because at the end of the day I don’t know the impact on their industry but I know the impact on my industry. We have always been a country that has accepted artists from all over the world with open arms. We have never mixed art with politics. People from both the countries have been affected by this ban. I just hope we reach some kind of status. Whether it is lifted or is permanent. I hope they (Pakistani artists) are not deprived of performing here,” he said.
