New Delhi: Noted industrialist Mukesh Ambani who was keeping out of the controversy regarding Pakistani artistes’ participation in cultural programmes in the country in the wake of Uri attack last month spoke against it on Monday.

In reply to a question on the controversy he said "the country comes first. Everything else including art and culture come only next”.

"I am a businessman and not an intellectual. So, I do not understand much of all this. But like all other Indians for me too the country comes first”, he added.

In reply to another question he said politics was not his forte. He replied to these questions on the sidelines of a function organised by the digital India organisation, the Print.

The debate on issue began after some of the film producers and directors including Karan Johar opposed the demand of a Hindu outfit to ban Pakistan artistes from coming to the country on cultural visa after the Uri attack by terrorists which had led to killing of 20 jawans.

The opinion was divided on the issue as some other film buffs had favoured the ban.
