Film Producers Association IMPPA, Temporarily Ban Pakistani Artists In India

Following India’s surgical strikes on LoC on September 28, Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) on September 29 passed a resolution temporarily banning all Pakistani artists and technicians in India.


The association, looking at the current hostile situation between India and Pakistan, decided to ban Pakistani actors, actresses and technicians till the situation gets normal.

Since the terrorist attack in Uri on September 18, there has been an uproar among people from different parts of India demanding to ban artists from Pakistan.

In Mumbai, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) even sent out a warning to all the Pakistani artists in India, that they should leave the country as soon as possible or face the consequences.

MNS also demanded a ban on all Bollywood films that are featuring these actors and actresses so as to show support to the country.


While many had come out supporting the ban, others had called the ban uncalled for and asked that cinema and political issues should be kept separate.

IMPPA’s latest ban is likely to get a lot of reactions, though so far, Twitterati’s have mostly expressed support for it.
