Mika Singh has been under the radar for a few days now after the news broke out that the lauded singer recently attended an event in Pakistan held for the former Pak President, Pervez Musharraf’s family. All hell broke loose when the netizens realized that the event took place after Article 370 was revoked, taking away the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir. The country has been debating over the issue ever since. The Federation of Western Indian Cine Employees decided to impose a ban on Mika.
In a recent press conference held to address the issue, Ashoke Pandit, BN Tiwari, and Mika Singh were at the panel. While there were a lot of reporters who wanted to ask questions to Mika, Ashoke Pandit and BN Tiwari let out a disclaimer saying that everyone was upset with Mika’s performance and had already issued an NC against him. While they were ready to impose a ban on him, Mika approached them asking for a chance to explain the reason behind performing in Pakistan. Turns out, Mika had agreed to do the event long before the Pulwama attacks took place and since it was an old commitment, he went ahead with it.
In conclusion, Pakistani artists are banned no matter how the Indo-Pak relationship takes a turn. The ban on Mika Singh has, however, been lifted.
