Amid heightened Indo-Pak tensions, former Bollywood actor and ex-BJP member Shatrughan Sinha was spotted attending a wedding in Lahore. Videos and pictures of him have gone viral on social media.
Reema was also seen sharing the frame with him in the video.
Further details regarding his visit have not yet been revealed. However, some media outlets have reported that the former actor is here on a two-day visit on the invitation of prominent businessman Mian Asad Ehsan, who is the father of the groom. Mian Ehsan, a celebrated filmmaker, is the grandfather of the groom. The filmmaker is associated with iconic films such as Mukhra (1958) Insaan (1966), and Mahal (1968). It is also being reported that Sinha will be meeting key political persons in the country.
Sinha’s visit comes as a surprise, especially considering that last year, the All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) had banned and boycotted Mika Singh from the film industry after the singer performed at a wedding in Pakistan. Since then, Bollywood and Indian actors have refrained from interacting with Pakistani artists or people.
The relationship between the two neighbouring countries went from bad to worse after the Modi government scrapped Article 370 stripping Indian-occupied Kashmir of its special status. The valley has been under lockdown ever since.
