Mumbai: Bollywood playback singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya has criticised superstar Salman Khan for questioning the campaign against Pakistani artistes working in India. He also accused the actor of being “ashamed to show loyalty to India” and supporting terrorism.
Bhattacharya’s comments have emerged a day after Salman expressed his views about the “ultimatum” issued by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and the “ban” by Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA) on Pakistani artistes from working in Indian showbiz.
Salman said on Friday: “They are artistes. What do you think… Are artistes terrorists? They come to India with visa. Who gives them the visa? Our (Indian) government gives them visa. The government gives them work permit.”

Bhattacharya on Saturday tweeted: “Pakistani and Indian artists have one thing common, both enjoy India’s money, love, fame and both are anti-India anti-Indian Army #SalmanKhan. Fawad Khan shows true patriotism towards his country Pakistan, whilst Bollywood’s Salman Khan is ashamed to show loyalty to India.”
