Raj continues with his verbal attack against Pak artists


Raj Thackeray
Thane, Sept 9: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray continues with his vitriolic comment against Pakistani artists. Thackeray questioned as why Pakistani artists were to be given a red-carpet treatment in India at a cultural programme here on Sunday, Sept 9.

Thackeray said he had never opposed any art or artistes. He further added that he did not like the manner in which the country welcomed Pakistani artists.

"Is Asha Bhosle or Lata Mangeshkar invited to perform in Pakistan? If they are not, why should we invite artists from Pakistan?" he asked.

Thackeray further said the participation of Pakistani artists in 'Sur Kshetra' music reality show was not justified. "One should realise that the Pakistani artists participate in the shows, earn good money and just walk way." The producers of such TV shows should do some soul-searching and should not forget the terror attacks in the country, in which, innocent people had lost their lives, he said.

Thackeray said he gave a go-ahead to 'Sur Kshetra' after film producer Boney Kapoor met him. The MNS chief further said that he would do anything for the survival of Marathi films. "My first passion is film-making and had I not been in politics, I would have been a film-maker," he said.
