AICWA bans Mika Singh for performing at a wedding in Pakistan


All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has banned and boycotted Mika Singh after the singer performed at a wedding in Pakistan. 

The singer performed at the former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf's cousin in Karachi and the video had gone viral. Mika performed at that time when India and Pakistan are going through tough times.  

The Federation of Western India Cine Employees’ (FWICE), the mother body of all 24 crafts of filmmaking, on Wednesday, had issued a statement saying that it was deeply hurt by Mika Singh alias Amrik Singh's performance at the wedding.

AICWA President Suresh Gupta added that he will make sure that no one works with Mika Singh in India and if anyone does "he will face legal consequences in the court of law."

The statement further said that at a time when the tension between India and Pakistan is at its peak (because of the removal of Article 370), "Mika has put money above the nation."

Mika reportedly charged USD 150,000 (Rs 1 crore) for his performance at the wedding.

Mika also took to Twitter to share a video of the President of FWICE B.N. Tiwari, in which the latter mentions that he received a letter from Mika. Mika captioned the video as, “I would like to sincerely thank Mr. B.N. Tiwari and #FWICE for being so understanding towards me and my sentiments. As I always have done, I will continue to do good for my society and the people of my country. JaiHind.. #Supportindiansingers #Banpaksitanisingers." In the video posted by Mika, the President of FWICE said, “In the letter, he (Mika) said he would accept everything mentioned by the Federation had he made a mistake and will also apologize to the entire nation.”
