Why not ban politicians, doctors: PeeCee on Pak artistes ban

New Delhi [India], Oct. 17 (ANI): Priyanka Chopra has finally spoken about the ongoing controversy surrounding the ban on Pakistani artistes.

Speaking to a leading English news channel, the actress said that she backs the government's stand being a patriotic Indian.

"I am extremely patriotic. So, whatever my government decides is important to keep the country safe, I go with that", said the 34-year-old star.

The 'Quantico' star, however, added that she did not believe in the artistes being a representation.

"It's tricky because first of all artistes and actors are always held responsible for every bigger political agenda that happens in the country," she said.

"Why not business (men), politicians, doctors and why not anyone else except for public people who are not actors in the movie industry?" she continued.

The Pakistani artistes working in Bollywood were the first to bear the brunt of the hostilities between India and Pakistan post the Uri terrorist attack.

Following this, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) threatened the Pakistani artistes to leave the country and since then films starring actors Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan have been under the radar of release ban.

"We should be concerned about keeping the rest of our sons and the rest of our soldiers safe and that needs to be the focus. We always lose our focus and comment on something else because that's what that makes noise and because people talk about it and media carries it," she added. (ANI)
