Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya on Friday heavily criticised Bollywood filmmakers for what he referred to as "breeding and feeding" Pakistani actors. Bhattacharya took to Twitter to launch a scathing attack on directors and producers who have worked with Pakistani artists and singled out a few big names in the industry, like Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt.
He posted, "B'wood is now full of frustrated गेs and 6s prodcrs directrs, no balls, they want more Pathan boyfriends from Pak now." He called Karan Johar an "anti-national" for casting well-known actor Fawad Khan in his upcoming movie, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, and said people "like him are bigger enemies" of India than Pakistan. He also attacked actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan for working with Pakistani artists.
As a mark of his protest against the recent terror attack at the Uri army base, the singer asked External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to stop granting visas to Pakistani nationals. Bhattacharya also encouraged the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, whose film wing issued a 48-hour deadline to Pakistani artists to leave India, and urged the government to "bash the real traitors".
This singer has made controversial remarks before. He was also arrested for trolling a woman journalist on Twitter. Last year, an FIR was filed against him for allegedly molesting a woman during the Durga Puja festival in Mumbai.
