New Delhi, Oct 14 : India has no problem in issuing visas to Pakistani artistes, a Union Home Ministry official said.

"We have no problem in granting visas. If a person applies for visa and he fulfills the conditions, he gets it. It's not that we don't have to issue visa to Pakistani nationals," he added.

The statement comes after the protest by Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India .They have decided not to allow of films with Pakistani artistes in single screens in Maharashtra, Goa and Gujarat.

Earlier Indian Motion Picture Producer Association had passed a resolution urging Indian filmmakers to avoid working with Pakistani artistes until bilateral tensions between the two countries subside.
