'Pakistan to restrict actors from working in Bollywood'

Feb 23 Pakistan might restrict actors from appearing in Indian movies after Pakistani superstar Meera's "vulgar" scenes in her film "Nazar", Online news agency reported.

Meera is currently in India shooting for "Nazar", directed by Soni Razdan and written by Mahesh Bhatt. It is her first appearance in a Bollywood film.

Official sources here said the film's "objectionable scenes" showing Meera kissing an Indian actor had prompted the Pakistan government and the culture ministry to impose a heavy fine on the popular actress.

The sources said people had reacted strongly to some of these scenes as they were against Islamic ethics and moral values.

The government has directed the culture ministry to take severe action against Meera as Pakistani actors visiting other nations were seen as ambassadors of the country.

Meera had earlier this month claimed in Mumbai that a Pakistani religious group, which she did not name, had been making threatening calls to her. The calls began after still showing her in a clinch with her "Nazar" co-star Ashmit Patel were circulated in December.
