'Kya drama hai boss': Twitter reacts to Anupam Kher's Pakistan visa controversy
A day after Bollywood actor Anupam Kher claimed he was denied Pakistani visa, he said he has now been offered the visa but has "given away those dates". Here's how Twitterati reacted...
It all began on Tuesday when Bollywood actor Anupam Kher took to Twitter to announce that his Pakistani visa had been denied.
Have been informed that Pakistan MoFA has denied permission for my visa to participate in the Karachi Literature festival.— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 2, 2016
He went on to express his displeasure over the same and posted a series of tweets:
Sad to have been denied visa on second time in a year. While around 17 people will participate in the Karachi Literature Festival as guests.— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 2, 2016
Has my visa been denied because I speak about India's rich tradition of tolerance or I am a Kashmiri Pandit who may expose Pak terror nexus?— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 2, 2016
Indian Govt welcomes Pakistan based writers, artists, actors etc. Pakistan Govt. bans entry of Indian actors. Why fear a free dialogue?— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 2, 2016
Didn't Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs red flag my name to Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi? Why hide facts deliberately?— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 2, 2016
Pak High Commission shud know their own rules. #KarachiLitFest had given my name to authorities 1 month back & have my name in every poster.— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 2, 2016
However, in a turn of events, the Pakistani High Commission in Delhi denied having rejected Anupam Kher's visa. They said that he had not applied in the first place. Kher announced a press conference to "prove the Pakistan High Commission's" lie.
Will be presenting all proofs/documents to prove Pakistan High Commission's Lie that i didn't apply for visa. Press Con at 5.30 in my school— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 2, 2016
Twitterati had a field day taking a dig at Anupam Kher over the hilarious twist in story. Here are some of the funniest reactions:

If Pakistan government would've seen how Anupam Kher betrayed India as Inspector Giridhar in Hum, they would've instantly granted him a visa— Kutta Kahi Ka (@BhayanakPuppy) February 2, 2016
A day after Anupam Kher claimed he was denied a visa to visit Pakistan, he said that he has now been offered the visa but has "given away those dates".
Thank you Mr. @abasitpak1 for your call & offering me visa to visit Karachi. I appreciate it. Unfortunately i've given away those dates now.— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) February 3, 2016
Twitter users slammed Anupam Kher for 'declining' Pakistan's visa offer after creating drama a day before. Here's what they had to say:
@AnupamPkher Sir, you created so much discussion yesterday. So were you not expecting that Pak will be ready to give uou Visa?— Rachit Gupta (@rachitattweet) February 3, 2016
