MUMBAI – An extremist group affiliated with Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has warned the Pakistani artists to leave India in 48-hours.

As per reports by the Indian media, a member of MNS, Amey Khopkar threatened to beat up Pakistani artists, including those who cast them in their productions. “Pakistani kalakaar toh maar khaayenge hi, saath mein jo yahan producer/director hain unko bhi peetenge (Paksitani artists will be beaten up and so will the producers and directors),” he said.
