Anupam Kher ‘denied’ Pak visa, high commission says he never appliedtext_fields
New Delhi: Veteran actor Anupam Kher on Tuesday said he has been denied the Pakistan visa for his visit to Karachi for a literature festival. A Pakistani diplomat here however said that he has "not submitted" any visa application.
Anupam told a TV channel: "... I don't know why I have been denied (the visa). But this is true that I have been denied the visa."
The actor wondered if it is his point of view on Kashmiri Pandits or his pro Prime Minister Narendra Modi stance which led to the denial of the visa.
Manzoor Ali Memon, a diplomat from the Pakistan High Commission, however, told IANS: "He (Anupam Kher) has not submitted (any) visa application. Please check out from him if he has any receipt."
The three-day Karachi literary festival will commence from Friday.
