P Aggarwal, the president of Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA), on Monday slammed quantico star Priyanka Chopra after she condemned the demand for a blanket ban on the Pakistani artists in India due to Uri attack.

“Priyanka Chopra comes from an army background, her father was an army doctor and he himself must have seen so many dead bodies and must have taken care of all those patients. Now, if she says this, then it is unfortunate,” he said.

“If she wants to help those producers then she should also go to the high court and the Supreme Court and try to see that their movies get released,” he added.

“In IMPPA we have not banned Pakistani actors but we have told the producers that any producer who had already made the movie, then their movies should be released and they should make new movies only when India Pakistan relations get better,” said Aggrawal over the IMPPA stand.

The Indian actor finally spoke about the ongoing controversy surrounding the ban on Pakistani artistes. Speaking to a leading English news channel, the actor said that Priyanka Chopra backs the government’s stand.

“It’s tricky, because first of all artistes and actors are always held responsible for every bigger political agenda that happens in the country,” she said.

“Why not business (men), politicians, doctors and why not anyone else except for public people who are not actors in the movie industry” she continued.

Actress Priyanka Chopra said it is not justified that actors alone have to bear the brunt.
