Does Mahira Khan's fear about signing Indian webseries says a lot about restrictions on art and artists?

After the Uri and Pulwama attacks, All Indian Cine Workers Association banned Pakistani artistes from working in Indian film industry. Pakistani actress Mahira Khan who will be soon seen in a series on Zee5 expressed her thoughts on the ban as she spoke with Film Companion. She had debuted in Bollywood with Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees in 2017. Mahira stated, “A lot of the other series were offered to me and at that time… I don’t know if anybody will understand when I say this, I was scared. I was genuinely just scared. It wasn’t about what people say, I was just like, ‘I don’t know if I want to go there.’ And there was some content which was amazing, and I didn’t want to miss out on it.” She further added that now she won't let something political affect her choices. She also hopes that collaborations take place between India and Pakistan in digital or any way. The decision of ban was definitely taken after understanding different situations. However, don’t you feel that art should not be mixed with political tensions? Any artform like performing arts hold its own values and its basis is to bring people closer forgetting their differences. Do you think that restrictions on artistes from different regions will limit us from exploring better content?
