Mika Singh, who has lent his voice to a plethora of Bollywood songs, after performing at a wedding in Karachi, sparked serious outrage that resulted in him getting banned from the Indian Film Industry.
Mika’s Karachi performance, with a 14-member troupe, happened on August 8. The bride’s father, Adnan Asad, is reportedly a cousin of former Pakistan President, General Pervez Musharraf.

AICWA, in a statement released on Tuesday, said that they have taken the decision of boycotting the singer’s association with the film production houses, music companies and online music content providers. 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, “Mika has put money above the nation.”
