Bolly ban on Pak artistes lyrics, song mp3 download, family, wedding pictures, age, height, weight, biography
Sept. 29: The Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association, an organisation of Bollywood film producers, today passed a resolution not to hire Pakistani actors, singers or technicians till “normalcy” was restored between the neighbours.
Sources said the 200-odd film producers who attended the association’s annual general meeting agreed that the decision would not apply to ongoing projects.
A media statement from association president T.P. Aggarwal said the decision had been taken “on the demand of all the producers”.
“Henceforth, till the situation is okay between the Pakistani and Indian governments, we will not hire any Pakistani artiste, technician or singer,” he said.
“If there’s any ongoing project from which they cannot be removed now… they can come for that.”
Fawad Khan is currently Pakistan’s biggest name in Bollywood, having delivered two successful films, Khoobsurat and Kapoor & Sons, as the leading man.
He is awaiting the release of his biggest film yet, Karan Johar’s Diwali biggie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which also features Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma.
While Johar has been vociferously supporting the actor, there has been talk that Fawad, who is now in Pakistan for the birth of his second child, won’t be promoting Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
The ban hangs a cloud over Fawad’s future projects: a Johar production opposite Katrina Kaif and a Salman Khan production he reportedly signed a few weeks ago.
Fawad’s Humsafar co-star Mahira Khan is set to make her big Bollywood debut in the January release Raees, opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
Singer Atif Aslam has already taken a hit with his October 15 concert in Gurgaon called off on Thursday.
Singer-actor Ali Zafar, who last starred in the 2014 film Kill Dil, has a release slated for November: Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi, featuring Shah Rukh and Alia Bhatt.
