Indian director cuts Fawad Khan’s scenes from ‘MS Dhoni’
MUMBAI: Under the dire pressure from Indian extremists, director Neeraj Pandaey omitted Fawad Khan’s scenes from the biopic “MS Dhoni-the untold story”.
Fawad Khan played a key role of Virat Kohli in the Dhoni’s biopic staring Sushant Singh Rajput.
Due to the pressure from Indian extremists to ban Pakistani artists in India after the tensions escalated between both countries, Fawad’s scenes were omitted to avoid further reaction from extremists and controversies.
It may be noted here that Pakistani artists are threatened by Hindu extremist to leave India.
The extremists have also threatened the media houses for dire consequences if they cast Pakistani actors.
Following these threats, the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) had also banned Pakistani actors from working in the industry.
