Mum­bai: Ac­tor Ajay Devgn is the lat­est Bol­ly­wood celebrity to come out in sup­port of ban on Pak­istani artistes work­ing in In­dia, say­ing he is not go­ing to ‘share screen space’ with them as of now. Devgn, 47, whose film Shivaay is pit­ted against Karan Jo­har’s Ae Dil

Hai Mushkil at the box of­fice later this month, said he is not wor­ried about its re­lease in Pakistan. “This is the time to stand by the na­tion,” he said. Pakistan star Fawad Khan has a spe­cial role in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, when asked if he will share screen or any artis­tic space with any Pak­istani artiste, Devgn said, “Not at the mo­ment. I am very clear on this be­cause you are an In­dian first. I don’t care if my film doesn’t re­lease in Pakistan. Their artistes are stand­ing by their na­tion. They are earn­ing here but are stick­ing by their na­tion. We should learn from them.” Ma­ha­rash­tra Navnir­man Sena had given an ul­ti­ma­tum to Pak­istani ac­tors to leave In­dia and also asked for a ban on them work­ing in Bol­ly­wood in the wake of the Uri ter­ror attack on Septem­ber 18.

They have also threat­ened to stall the re­lease of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees, star­ring Mahira Khan. Times of In­dia
