Salman Khan: No political agenda in Ghulam Ali issue cancel all concerts in India

10986933_831293270292211_5562717822442528575_oSalman Khan sees no “political agenda” in Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali scrapping all his scheduled performances in India. Appreciating the success of Pakistani shows in the country, the superstar says art knows “no boundaries” and needs to be appreciated by all.

“I don’t think that there is a political agenda. It is not a political thing. I don’t think art and culture should be got into all this,” Salmansaid when asked about the scraping of Ghulam Ali’s concerts.

Ghulam Ali, who made an entry into Indian cinema with his popular song “Chupke chupke raat din” for B.R. Chopra’s “Nikaah”, cancelled all his scheduled performances in the country, saying that he won’t return to India until “things are settled down”. The singer was stopped from performing in Mumbai and in Pune last month after threats from Shiv Sena.

The 49-year-old, whose last film “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” did well in Pakistan, asserted that art should be appreciated across all regions.

“This is art. There is no boundary in that. You look at the Zindagi shows. They are doing so well. Everyone loves to watch it, even my mother loves to watch them. Art has to be appreciated,” said the actor, who is now awaiting the release of “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”.
