Shaan has spoken, again. The Pakistani actor -- who has earlier made some controversial statements on social media -- has this time called out India supporters in Pakistan following Shiv Sena's threats to Pakistani artists and players.

"Now you will know why there are borders and now you will see them clearly," he wrote in his Facebook post.

Shiv Sena targets Mahira, Fawad

The actor is known for speaking out against Pakistani performers collaborating with Indian filmmakers, namely Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan.

But this time his Facebook status followed the Hindu extremist organisation's pledge to not let Fawad and Mahira promote their films in India.

Mahira’s debut Bollywood film Raees is set to be released on Eid next year and features India’s biggest star — Shah Rukh Khan. Fawad’s film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is being directed by Karan Johar. Its cast includes Bollywood A-listers Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and Anushka Sharma. Pakistani actor Imran Abbas also has a special appearance in the film.

“We have taken a stand not to allow any Pakistani actor, cricketer or performer to step on Maharashtra soil,” Emirates 24/7 quoted Akshay Bardapurkar, a top Shiv Sena leader as saying.

Akram, Akhtar to be sent back to Pakistan over Shiv Sena threat

Earlier, Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali, The Mekaal Hasan Band and Atif Aslam’s concerts were cancelled following protests by Shiv Sena.

Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar too had to cut short their stay in India and return to Pakistan due to threats from the Hindu extremists organisation.

JSM | 5 years ago | Reply Shiv Sena are Indian non-state actors. They are not as effective as Pakistani non- state actors (remember Mumbai 26/11/2008) yet. However we are sure they will improve with passage of time. Does any one have any objection?
Stranger | 6 years ago | Reply S is in no way the spokesperson of Pak film industry. his movies are at best , meat fests with that amazonian Saima or Sana . And BTW Shiv sena is not the correct rep of the whole India . Many Indians love and cherish Pak actors.
