It seems like Shilpa Shinde is all in to perform in Pakistan. In a video that was shared by her brother Ashutosh, the actress said that if she is given a visa and is greeted by the other country, as an artist she is free to perform anywhere, including Pakistan. She even dared and said that she is not alarmed to just any TV body banning her.

Shilpa has protracted her support to Mika through a video tweeted by her brother, Ashutosh Shinde. The Bigg Boss 11 winner says she also wants matters between India and Pakistan resolved, but believes that “banning artists won’t help” anyone.

“As I said, if I get an invite from Pakistan to perform there, if our government clears the papers, I’ll perform there. I’ve fans there, what is their fault? I understand the ban on Pakistani artists performing here because we already have so much talent in India. But that does not mean we’ll stop listening to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Being born in Pakistan can’t be his fault,” she says.

“Main bhi Hindustani hoon. I’m no less a patriot. Indians are known for being liberal, loving. So if Pakistan is doing certain things which aren’t right, should we not avoid repeating the same and set an example. Mein darr ke nahi ji sakti… Also, why aren’t these associations whose job is to support artists, with Mika rather being against him,” adds the 41-year-old.

Well, do you think the pointers raised by Shilpa are actually valid and we should rethink on banning Indian artists to perform in Pakistan?
