Indian supermodel Avantika Kapoor has been getting threatening phone calls and e-mails from Pakistan for acting his a film 'Mahi Mahi' featuring a love story between a Shia boy and a Sunni girl.
Pakistan has been home to sectarian strife between Shia and Sunni communities resulting in too much bloodletting. Directed by Faisal Saif, the film features the tension between two communities when boy falls in love with a girl from a different community.
A man from a Pakistan-based mobile number has been calling up Avantika for the last four days and threatening to kill her if she did not stop acting in the film, says the actress. Avantika went to Oshiwara police station on Friday and filed an FIR.
The actress has recorded the man's threatening calls, and the tone appears to be that of a Pathan or Afghan, Avantika said.
