Pakistani singer Salma Agha to get lifetime Indian visa
Agha had also met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday and put forth her request so she could visit India frequently, reported the Times of India.
Agha said she receives a lot of love and adulation from India, adding that she could have become Indian citizen anytime as her fore-fathers hail from Punjab’s Amritsar city.
Agha, the granddaughter of legendary actor Jugal Kishore Mehra and actress Anwari Begum, is currently a UK citizen.
“There is nothing new in this (visa being given). Modi ji’s government has helped me so much. We are grateful. I could have taken citizenship anytime. I belong to India. I am an Indian. My forefathers are from Amritsar,” she said after the meeting.
She also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his initiatives for the empowerment of women.
