Amid the rising tension between India and Pakistan, Bollywood singer Mika Singh has been banned by the All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) for performing at an event in Karachi.
The decision was taken after a 30-second video clip uploaded by a Pakistani journalist went viral on social media. The video showed Mika performing at the event. It may be mentioned here that India served all artistic and social ties with Pakistan after the removal of Article 370.
“AICWA bans and boycott singer Mika Singh from the Indian film industry for performing at a high profile event at Karachi dated August 8, 2019,” AICWA President Suresh Shyamlal Gupta stated in a letter.
Reports suggested that the event was organised by former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf’s close relative.
