According to earlier news, Bollywood actor Anupam Kher was invited to this festival. But he denied visa to attend this festival. When reporters asked about the reason to deny it then he said there are two major reasons.

Anupam Kher tweeted as, “Has my visa been denied because I speak about India’s rich tradition of tolerance or I am a Kashmiri Pandit who may expose Pak terror nexus?”

Pakistan High Commission told in reply to Anupam’s charge that he was denied visa as he never applied for a visa in the first place.

After that, Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit called the actor and expressed his regret over denial of visa to the actor.
