JUST IN! Industry BANS Mika Singh For Performing In Pakistan Legal Action To Follow

Now, in the aftermath of the massive backlashing, the All India Cine Workers Association has banned the singer.

As per reports doing the rounds, the mehendi function at which Mika Singh performed with his 14-member troupe on August 8, 2019, is said to have been attended by family members of India's mosted wanted fugitive terrorist Dawood Ibrahim, who reportedly operates from Pakistan.

Mika had performed at an event organised by former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf's close relative on August 8. Adnan Asad is reportedly a cousin of former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf.

In an official statement released by AICWA, President Suresh Gupta said that the organisation has taken a stand of immediately boycotting all of Mika's associations with production houses and music companies, as well as with online music content providers.

Gupta further added, "AICWA will make sure that no one in India works with Mika Singh and if anyone does, they will face legal consequences in the court of law". AICWA requested Information and broadcasting ministry to intervene and act legally on the singer. Several people called out on the singer on social media for performing in Karachi, Pakistan.

Following the Pulwama terror attack, the All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has announced a ban on Pakistani artistes and actors. Amid the mounting tensions, Mika's decision to perform at the wedding in Pakistan evoked a lot of outrage by his fans and they took to Twitter to express their feelings. "NATION FIRST, ONE NATION, ONE DREAM", AICWA's statement continued. According to India Today, Mika reportedly charged $150,000 for the performance.

The latest round of tensions between India and Pakistan arose after India diluted the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and divided it into two union territories.
