Actor Akshay Kumar alleged on Friday that, “He is amazed that some people are debating the ban on Pakistani artists at a time when soldiers have been killed in a terror attack.”
Akshay Kumar shared a video on the social media. In the video, he criticized on the questions that are being raised about Indian army's surgical strikes that were held in PoK few days back.
"Something which has been on my mind for the past few days and I just had to say it. Not intending to offend anyone… So here goes," actor affirmed.
"I am not speaking to you as a celebrity today. I am speaking to you as the son of an army man. For the past few days, I have been seeing and reading that people are arguing and some are asking for proof about surgical strikes, some are demanding ban on artists, while some fear that there might be a war," Akshay Kumar asserted.
"Arey sharam karo (have shame). These debates can happen later. First one must realise that people have already laid down their lives at the border. Nineteen jawans died during the attack and a 24-year-old jawan Nitin Yadav died in Baramulla," he said.
"Are their families, or the families of our thousands of jawans, worried whether a film will release or not? Whether an artiste will be banned? No. They are worried about their future."
"And our concern should be to ensure that their present and future is better. I am, because they are. You are, because they are and if they are not there, then India won't exist. Jai Hind."
