Veteran actor Nana Patekar, has slammed Salman Khan for supporting Pakistani actors, after the Uri terrorist attack.
Salman had recently questioned in a statement, “They are artistes. What do you think… Are artistes terrorists? They come to India with visa. Who gives them the visa? Our (Indian) government gives them visa. The government gives them work permit.”
When journalists ask Nana Patekar to give his view on this, he replied, “Pakistani actors and others come later, first comes my country. I don’t know anyone other than my country and would never like to know. Actors are like bed bugs in front of the country, we don’t have any worth.”
He targeted Salman and Karan Johar indirectly and said, “I don’t care what Bollywood has to say. I was in Army and I have spent two and half years there. So I know who our biggest heroes are. No one can be a bigger hero than our Army men. Our original heroes are our jawans. We are just small, fake people. So whatever we say, please don’t play attention to it. Are you understanding who am I referring to? Yes! It’s about them only! Hum jo ‘patar-patar’ karte hai unn par dhyaan matt do. Itni ahmat matt do kisiko. Unki itni aukaat nahi hai itni ahmat ki.”
Earlier, MNS Supremo Raj Thackrey and singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya had also targeted Salman for his support in favour of Pakistani actors.
