Our nation comes first, says Sajid Khan on Pak artistes ban

New Dellhi [India], Oct. 7 (ANI): Joining their colleagues from the Bollywood industry, the recent to opinionate about the ban on Pakistani artistes are actor Riteish Deshmukh and filmmaker Sajid Khan.

When asked during a media interaction about their take on the ongoing tension in the country, 45-year-old Sajid said, "We are at a state of war. We are proud Indians. And, we have to respect our nation. Our nation comes first. So, if Pakistani actors have to go back, they should go back. I am with my country like any other Indian."

The 'Banjo' star echoed similar views and said, "Whenever it is about the country, it is India first. There is no compromise. After Uri attack, whatever response our Army and Prime Minister Narendra Modi took, I support and salute (them) for such a great response. This is what should happen," he said.

Adding, "When someone does something, you have to respond sometimes at the right way and this was the correct way to respond."

The 37-year-old actor further substantiated his take and said, "If tomorrow, whatever relationships are there, whether India-Pakistan cricket match, films or trade, if they decide unilaterally that more pressure can be put by cutting them off, to solve this issue, that some result can be attained, we will support. We are citizens, we will follow." (ANI)
