Veteran actress and politician Hema Malini says she does not support Pakistani artistes working in India. Hema tweeted recently, "I would like to say that I am 100 per cent with our jawans (soldiers), who are fighting and dying for our country and do not support Pakistan artistes working here. Jai Hind!"
The 67-year-old actress even lauded the Indian Army for the surgical strikes on terror launch pads along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir last month. "Our army has done a great job with the surgical strikes and the whole country should be supportive of them. Why ask for proof of action? Unheard of!" she tweeted.

However, earlier at an event in Delhi, Hema Malini appreciated the work of Pakistani actors but did not say if they should work in India or not. Asked about her view on the ban on Pakistani artistes in India, the BJP's Lok Sabha member from Mathura constituency said, "I don't want to comment much on this controversial question. But all I can say is that we are artistes and so are those who come from there (Pakistan) to perform here. As an artiste, I can appreciate their work. But whether they should stay here or not, I can't comment." But her recent tweets reveals her true feeling! Check out the tweets here:
The Indian Motion Picture Producers Association had recently passed a resolution deciding to ban Pakistani artistes from working in Indian movies until tensions between the two countries subside, following a terror attack on an Indian Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir that left 19 soldiers dead. This has put a cloud of doubt over Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees as they star Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan respectively. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has asked the makers to chop their scenes, however Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan aren't planning to do so! What will happen now? Let's wait and watch...
