LAHORE- Amid Kashmir tensions, actor Yasir Hussain has requested fellow artists to boycott Bollywood forever.

The Lahore Se Aagay actor took to Instagram and shared, “I want every Pakistani artist to say they will never work with India. You have love for Kashmir and then you want to work in India as well?”

He further went on to say, “Now all Pakistani artists are going to judge me but I don’t care. I love Pakistan and I cry for Kashmir. I used to believe art has no boundary but maybe there is one. They’ve drawn it, we should too. #standforkashmir.”

Following the friction between the two countries over Kashmir, Pakistan has disallowed the screening of Bollywood movies in country’s cinemas.

“No Indian cinema will be screened in any Pakistani cinema. Drama, films and Indian content of this kind will be completely banned in Pakistan,” Firdous Ashiq Awan, an adviser to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said in a tweet.

The All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has also written an open letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding a ban on already banned Pakistani artists.
