Moreover, another Bollywood actress Vidya Balan also shared her views on the ban on Pakistani artist in the Indian entertainment industry.

Her recent comments made against Pakistan has managed to raise quite a few eyebrows.

While talking to the media at the launch of her debut radio show, the actress said:

Though I have always believed that art should be kept away from all boundaries and politics, I think we have to take a stand now. Enough is enough.

When asked if art should be kept away from politics, she replied:

As an individual, I believe that there is no better way to bring people together than arts, be it music, poetry, dance, theatre, cinema or any other art form. But this time I think we should just take a break from this practice and see what can be done for the future. As I said, some tough calls have to be taken at some point.
