Hansal Mehta: Banning cricket, artistes and films doesn’t really hurt Pakistan
The recent terror attacks in Jammu Kashmir has created an uproar throughout the nation with people demanding strict action against the neighbouring country Pakistan. Bollywood too has condemned the attacks. In fact, some of them have asked for a halt in the cultural exchanges between the two countries while others are demanding a complete ban on Pakistani artistes.
Netizens have also appealed to the concerned authorities to boycott matches with Pakistan’s Cricket team in the upcoming World Cup. In the wake of the ghastly attacks, several filmmakers like Ajay Devgn, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Dinesh Vijan announced that their upcoming films won’t be releasing in Pakistan. Some of them have even vowed that henceforth, they will never release their films in Pakistan.
Now, filmmaker Hansal Mehta has made some keen observations on the ongoing situation and taking to his twitter handle, he questioned if we are achieving anything by banning cricket or films between the two nations?
You can read his entire tweet here:
You really want to hit Pakistan where it hurts? Tell all those multi-nationals and corporations who do business in both India and Pakistan to leave India if they continue working with Pakistan. Don't rely on tokenism. Banning cricket, artistes and films doesn't really hurt.

Three years back too, post the Uri attacks, all the Pakistani artistes were asked to leave the country immediately and a ban was imposed on them. However later, singers from the neighbouring country continued to lend their voice for Hindi films. Now in the wake of the Pulwama attack, music labels have pulled down songs of Pakistani singers from their channels and a blanket ban has been imposed on them.
What do you have to say about Hansal’s post? Do you agree with his views? Do let us know.
