Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has spoken about the current political situation involving India and Pakistan. The actor said it’s better to have a peaceful environment, but added that the action taken by the Indian government and army was “proper” because they were terrorists.
“Ideally it should have been a situation of peace between the two countries. Every action has a reaction and what happened now was our reaction to an action. At this stage, I think it would be better if we stay with peace and spread love across the border. I think our action was proper because they were terrorists”
When asked about the controversy on the ban of Pakistani actors, Salman defended them saying they are not terrorists but artists who come with work permit.
“Terrorists and artists are different. Do you think there is no difference between an actor and a terrorist? Actors come here with a proper visa granted by government. They have a proper work permit” he added.
However, like always, the actor’s sane and balanced comments have been quoted out of context. The mainstream media has headlined his quotes as “backing Pakistani actors” which could erupt into a new controversy.
