Pakistan denies visa to Anupam Kher

New Delhi: Veteran actor Anupam Kher said that he had been denied visa by Pakistan. Kher was scheduled to attend the Karachi Literature Fest on February 5.

While speaking with a leading news channel Mr. Kher said that “I am very sad & disappointed that out of 18 participants 17 were given visa & I was denied.”

The actor took to Twitter to express his disappointment.

“Delay is the deadliest form of denial,” he tweeted.

The Pakistan High Commission however denied Kher’s claims saying that he hadn’t even applied for the visa.

Kher was earlier denied visa by Pakistan in May 2015 citing security reasons.
