Pulwama attack: Indian film industry bans Pakistani artistes

New Delhi: Condemning the dastardly attack on CRPF jawans in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on February 14, the All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) today announced a blanket ban on Pakistani actors and artistes working in film industry.

In a statement, the AICWA said action will be taken against any organisation which insists on working with Pakistani artists.

“The All Indian Cine Workers Association strongly condemns brutal terror attack on CRPF jawans at Pulwama distritc in J&K. Our heartfelt condolences to families of victims. AICWA stands with nations in confronting such terror and inhumanity,” the notice read.

“We are officially announcing a total ban on Pakistani actors and artists working in film industry. Still if any organisation insist on working with Pakistani artists will be banned by AICWA and a strong action will be taken against them. Nation come first, we stand with our nation,” it further read.

The move comes in the wake of the attack on CRPF convoy on February 14 during which at least 44 CRPF jawans lost their lives in Pulwama.
