On reports that visa was denied, Pakistan high commission claims that @AnupamPkher didn't submit a visa application.— Devirupa Mitra (@DevirupaM) February 2, 2016
However, the Pakistani High Commission has refuted Kher’s claim and said that they have received no visa application from the actor.
The actor was denied a Pakistani visa in May 2015 as well, when he wanted to visit Pakistan to attend a literary festival in Lahore.
