Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said in a tweet.

Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh also questioned the uproar by Kher over the denial of visa, asking if it is not mandatory for an individual to file for a visa application.

The veteran actor had last year taken out a rally against a protest march over growing 'intolerance' in the country. Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit had called up Kher yesterday after the actor said he was denied visa to attend the Karachi Literary Festival while 17 others were issued the travel document.

Basit tweeted, "@AnupamPkher you are always welcome Sir. You are a great artiste; we respect and admire you." Replying to Basit, Kher said, "Thank you Mr. @abasitpak1 for your call & offering me visa to visit Karachi. I appreciate it. Unfortunately i've given away those dates now."
