KARACHI (Web Desk) – Indian activist and actor Nandita Das has said that she will not be attending the Karachi Literature Festival (KLF) as she has been unwell since Wednesday.

Das went on to explain that her decision to not attend the event was not in any way related to the Anupam Kher fiasco, who was allegedly denied Pakistani visa to attend the literature festival in Karachi.
“I have been unwell since yesterday and unfortunately I am unable to go Karachi. I felt terrible letting down the organisers but it’s beyond my control. I had offered to do the sessions via Skype to make sure one can participate and the intent with which the Lit Fest is organised, is upheld,” read the post.
