Veteran actress Shabana Azmi says she supports Anupam Kher after he was denied a visa to Pakistan to attend the Karachi literary festival.

Shabana, 65, said her husband and noted lyricist Javed Akhtar had faced similar situation in the past.

“Some years ago Javed Akhtar, chair of delegation to Pakistan was denied a visa. Organiser cancelled the entire trip... I stand with Anupam Kher if he was denied visa,” she posted on twitter.

Kher, 60, who said he has been denied a Pakistani visa for the third time, was one of the 18 Indians invited to the four-day KLF starting Friday by the organisers and all of them including senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid and actor Nandita Das but excluding the actor were granted the visa.

The Pakistan High Commission in Delhi said Kher had never submitted visa application and so the question of issuing or denying him visa does not arise.
