New Delhi [India], Oct. 9 (ANI): Joining Salman Khan, Karan Johar and Siddharth Malhotra, Bollywood director Dibakar Banerjee voiced his support for the Pakistani artistes and said that they should definitely be allowed to work in India.

When asked about his opinion on whether the artistes from the neighboring country should be given a permit to work in India, he said, "I don't think Pakistani actors should be banned from Bollywood, they should work in India."

Reasoning his take, the 47-year-old filmmaker said, "I want all kinds of actors to work in India, because Bollywood is a big industry and the more actors it gets from outside the better it is."

The ban on Pakistani actors was imposed in wake of the escalating tension at the border post the attack in Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir. (ANI)
