Actor-comedian Raju Srivastava has cancelled his upcoming show in Pakistan, saying he can't entertain at a time when Indian soldiers are getting killed. Srivastava, 52, was supposed to travel to Karachi for a show.

In a video posted on Twitter, the comedian said he was distraught with the recent terrorist attack in Uri. "I was invited to do a comedy show in Pakistan but every day we see that our soldiers are getting killed at the border.

In this situation how can I go and make people laugh there?" wrote Srivastava on Twitter. "I don't want to go to Pakistan. Our country is good. Here we have brotherhood, respect and love. We are happy here. I won't go to Pakistan to do the show."
