Mumbai: The Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) passed a unanimous resolution at the annual general meeting, a few days back, urging all their members to stop working with artists and technicians from Pakistan until tensions die down.

Ever since the IMPPA urged filmmakers to refrain from hiring Pakistani artists, a clear divide is visible between film industry members who oppose the stand and those who support it.

Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan have been making headlines for having Pakistani artists – Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan –in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees respectively.



Amid the din surrounding the issue, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) led by Raj Thackeray threatened to disrupt the screening of the films and even ‘beat up’ those who would work with artists from Pakistan.

Recruitment of Pakistani artists for Indian films is certainly a burning issue at this juncture. Nonetheless, a number of them have been a part of some of Bollywood’s recent releases. Here’s taking a look at ten Pakistani artists who have been a part of Bollywood films in the last few years:

Fawad Khan
