With rising tensions between India and Pakistan over the Uri attacks, some filmmakers are distancing themselves from Pakistani actors in their projects.
Earlier this week, a film body had placed a “ban” on Pakistani talent in future Bollywood releases. In response to this, the makers of ‘Shivaay’ have denied rumours of Pakistani actress Saba Qamar playing a significant role in the film. A statement said, “Actress Saba Qamar or any other Pakistani actor or actress is not a part of Shivaay.”
Incidentally, ‘Shivaay’s opposition ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ this Diwali, is already facing trouble with Fawad Khan being shown as one of the lead stars in the film.
