Tempers between India and Pakistan are at an all-time high ever since the dastardly terror attacks. From recent reports Pakistan had put its Air Force on high alert, India meanwhile has increased troop deployment on the LOC and stepped up stress on the UN platform. There is even a bill in the US parliament asking for Pakistan to be branded a terror state.

While other members from the film brotherhood has also condemned the attack, MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) the extremists ,has given a deadline to Pakistani actors to exit the country in 48 hours.
According to the latest reports, MNS has given an ultimatum to actors and artistes from Pakistan, such as Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan, to leave India. A leader of the party issued a 48-hour deadline, after which he said MNS would “push them out”.
MNS leader Amey Khopkar, chief of the MNS’s cinema workers’ unit Chitrapat Karamchari Sena, spoke to ANI regarding this.
He said, “We give a 48-hour deadline to Pakistani actors and artistes to leave India, or MNS will push them out. Pakistani artistes will get beaten up. Along with them, we will also beat up whichever producer or director is with them.”
