Bhushan Kumar’s T-series pulls down all Pakistani singer’s songs from its YouTube channel
Three years back in the wake of Uri attacks, Bollywood had banned all the Pakistani actors and singers. Fawad Khan’s part in Karan Johar‘s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ was chopped off after MNS threatened the filmmaker of dire consequences. Post that slowly and slowly our filmmakers started hiring Pakistani singers and artists again. But now after the ghastly Pulwama attacks looks like the ban will be reinforced all over again.
The film wing of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Saturday asked all the Indian music label companies to stop working with Pakistani singers. Amey Khopkar, head of the MNS Chitrapat Sena told PTI, “We have verbally communicated to Indian music companies like T-Series, Sony Music, Venus, Tips Music etc to not work with Pakistani singers. These companies should stop it immediately or we will take action in our own style.”
Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series has now pulled down all the Pakistani songs from their YouTube channel. Recently they had collaborated with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam, but now following the MNS’ Warning they have pulled down their songs as well.
Veteran actress Shabana Azmi and her lyricist husband Javed Akhtar too called for a halt of cultural exchange between the two countries owing to such deadly attacks.
