New Delhi: The Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi has denied a visa to Bollywood actor Anupam Kher who was to attend the Karachi Literary Festival, to be held on February 5, according to reports. It has cited security concerns as the reason for the denial of the visa.
The actor has claimed that he has been singled out of the team of the 18 delegates who applied for the visa. “I am very sad and disappointed that out of 18 participants, 17 were given visa and I was denied,” Kher told sources.

However, few reports say that the Pakistan High Commission has claimed that Kher had not even applied for a Pakistani visa.

“He has not submitted a visa application. Please check from him if he has any receipt,” Pakistan High Commission spokesperson Manzoor Ali Memon told reporters.

Kher took to twitter to express his disappointment and said, “We welcome their artistes in India. If there are objections to their performance at one place in India they are welcome at other places. But there is no reciprocity. I am wondering if it is because I am a Kashmiri Pandit or because of my views on the tolerance debate in India.”
