New Delhi :
Controversy over Anupam Kher’s comment on visa denial by Pakistan to attend Karachi Literature Fest has once again widened the crack between India and Pakistan.
The issue was brought to media attention on Tuesday when Kher claimed that he has been denied visa by Pakistan to attend the Karachi Literature Fest, which is slated to be held on February 5.
He also expressed his disappointment saying 17 out of 18 people were granted the visa while he was the only one who wasn’t granted the same.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan High Commission has denied such claims stating that Kher had not even applied for the visa.
He added that Anupam Kher seems to be unaware of the current process as he has not showed the acknowledgment slip.
The issue comes just days after Kher's name appeared in the list of Padma awardees. He was also embroiled into a controversy with Congress leader Shashi Tharoor over Hindu remarks.
