New Delhi: Veteran actor Anupam Kher on Tuesday said he has been denied a Pakistani visa for the second time, and described it as "sad".
A Pakistani diplomat here, however, said that he had "not submitted" any visa application -- a claim that the actor has called a "lie".
Anupam was to attend the Karachi Literature Festival which begins on Friday. However, while 17 out of the 18 Indians who were due to go received their visas, the 60-year-old says he was "singled out".
This is how Twitteratis reacted to news:
If you check Anupam Kher's profession, it says actor. But if you ask him, he says 'Abhi-neta'
