In the wake of the terror attack in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir, the All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) had announced a total ban on Pakistani actors and artistes working in the Indian film industry. Reacting to the decision, actress Raveena Tandon has said, “I definitely stand by their decision because this is not the time of cultural exchange because all of us are very hurt and upset. Honestly, earlier, I never used to appreciate decision of banning of Pakistani artists working in India. We have heard that many actors from Pakistan came here for work but after going back to their own country, they talk about India disrespectfully.”
Raveena also said that her Foundation will support education of martyrs’ children. “These are moments when everyone should come forward and contribute whatever it might be whether it’s a big or small amount. It goes a long way and yes, I have taken over the responsibility of educating the children of the martyrs. It’s not only of the Pulwama attack, it is basically for all our jawans and all are martyrs. My Foundation will take care of education and give out scholarships as well,” she said.
