No Anupam Kher at KLF 2016

One of India’s biggest actors and TV hosts, Anupam Kher had to visit Karachi for the upcoming 7th Karachi Literature Festival 2016. However, there is controversial news that he is now being denied visa to go to Pakistan.

Anupam Kher had to become a part of many panel discussions scheduled for KLF 2016, due to which, his presence at the festival was crucial. Nevertheless, it is not the first time Indian actors, artists, writers or filmmakers are denied Pakistani visa. During the same period last year, India’s renowned poet, Gulzar was denied permission to visit Karachi for the festival. Moreover, currently as well, big musical stars, such as, Ghulam Ali is not allowed to perform in India.

Events like KLF are organized to bridge the gap between cultures and religions on the basis of differences. On constant basis, writers, musicians, actors and other elite people from both the countries have emphasized on friendly relations between India and Pakistan but it seems that the effort is going in vain.

Anupam Kher still believe that his visa is not being denied but delayed by the government due to official formalities and he is hopeful that he will be attending KLF 2016 with all the energy and excitement. People of Pakistan and Karachi in particular are waiting to welcome this great actor and see him talk on important issues during the festival. It is hoped that the visa is only delayed and not denied although delay becomes one of the deadliest denials at times, as mentioned by Kher himself.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
