Chetan Bhagat may not be in favour of banning of Pakistani artistes from working in India but the author also feels that they should take a clear stand against terrorism. When News18.com asked if he supported the ban of these artistes, he stated, “ Bans don’t work. I don’t think it’s a good idea because, you know, what is it really going to achieve? But I do feel that everybody who works in India, gets a living from this country, gets the love of fans here should take a stand against terrorism. “
Bhagat, though suggested that these artistes should be given asylum in India so that the world understands India’s stand on the matter. “Tell them come to India but take Indian passports and we will give you if you fear retribution and then you can tell the world that Pakistani artistes are coming here,” the author said.
