New Delhi [India], Oct. 1 (ANI): After superstar Salman Khan, Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana is the new entrant to the list of celebrities supporting the ideology that art and artists should not be banned.

Voicing his opinion about the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's (MNS) ultimatum to Pakistani actors asking them to leave India, the 32-year-old actor said terrorists are the ones, who deserve to be targeted and not artists.

"I think of course we should attack the terrorists for sure but we should not attack the artists, that's about it," said the 'Vicky Donor' actor.

On a related note, the 'Dabang' star, who echoed similar sentiments about the issue, has been criticized nationwide ever since he made a comment against the ban on artists.

For the unversed, the MNS imposed a ban on Pakistani actors in response to the terrorist attack in Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir. (ANI)
