The dastardly Pulawama attack, All India Cine Workers Association announced a blanket ban on Pakistani actors and artists in India. They issued a statement which was tweeted by a media agency stating, “All India Cine Workers Association announce a total ban on Pakistani actors and artists working in the film industry. #PulwamaAttack.” The statement also read as ‘If any organisation insist on working with Pakistani Artists will be banned by AICWA and strong action will be taken against them.’
Now as per reports in a portal, Salman Khan will be replacing Pakistani singer Atif Aslam in the superstar’s upcoming home production Notebook. Khan has asked his production house to do so with an immediate effect and the song will be re-recorded with a new singer in a couple of days. An official announcement from the team of Notebook is yet to come on the decision.
When the Pulwama Attack took place last week, Salman had tweeted, “My heart goes out for the Jawans of our beloved country and their families who lost their lives as martyrs to save our families… #YouStandForIndia”
