Anupam Kher Denied Pakistani Visa
Veteran Indian actor Anupam Kher has been denied a Pakistani visa due to security concerns, media reported on Tuesday.
According to the report, an NGO had invited the seasoned actor to perform in Lahore, to which he had agreed. However, the Pakistani embassy denied him a visa, citing security reasons.
The actor spoke with media recently about the Army Public School attack in Peshawar in December 2014.
“Terrorism is currently the most bothersome situation, not only in India and Pakistan but also in the world,” he had said. “Any act of terrorism has to be condemned, but the inhumane way in which the children were killed really upset me. I decided to vent my feelings and the letter was an on-the-spot reaction,” he added. “Seeing nearly 150 children killed in an act of terrorism devastated me.”
