Amid tension in the wake of Uri terror attack, the MNS on Friday asked Pakistani artistes like Fawad Khan to leave immediately, failing which their shootings will be stalled.

Actors like Mahira Khan (starring Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Raees’) and “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” star Fawad Khan are hijacking the opportunities of Indian artistes, Shalini Thackeray, wife of MNS chief Raj Thackeray, said in a press conference.

She said these two actors have been served the ultimatum to leave the country.

However, Mumbai police assured the actors that they need not worry as they will be given protection.

Shalini, who is the general secretary of MNS, told PTI that their Chitrapat wing has issued a 48-hour ultimatum to all the Pakistani actors to leave the country.

“We have started dashing off letters to Pakistani actors, whose country is allegedly sponsoring terrorism, to stop their acting business here.

“We would also issue letters to the producers on what grounds they are hiring the Pakistani actors, when there are ample number of actors here in the country and struggling to find an opportunity,” she said.
