Dabangg star Salman Khan is well known for his enmity and friendship as well as his controversies in the industry. While friends of Salman don't leave a chance to praise him and his enemies even don't stop blaming him, in a recent incident Salman has been reportedly warned following the escalating tensions with Pakistan.
Movie and music enthusiasts are well aware that Punjabi singer Mika Singh has been recently banned after performing at the wedding of the daughter of former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf’s cousin in Pakistan's Karachi. The All India Cine Workers Association and Federation of Western India Cine Employees association (FWICE) also announced that if any artist works with Mika then he or she will face a similar ban.
According to a report published by Mid-Day, the association has made the announcement in reference to an upcoming six-city gig in the US. Dabangg star Salman Khan is also slated to perform at the event with Mika Singh. The US event is just a week away and Mika is expected to join the event in Houston on August 28, but there is no confirmation about Mika and Salman joining the concert.
FWICE had declared the ban commenting on Mika Singh that it was unfortunate that the singer considered money over nation's pride.
The General Secretary of FWICE, Ashok Dubey informed to Mid-Day, "If we impose a ban, it means all our technicians -- including actors, directors and even spot boys -- will not work with Mika. If someone works with Mika during this ban, say Salman or anyone else, then he too will be banned."
Dubey also made it clear that the ban applies to the artists irrespective to the place of work.
FWICE on Monday stated that Mika wants to apologise as the singer had tweeted on his Twitter handle.
I would like to sincerely thank Mr. BN Tiwari and #FWICE for being so understanding towards me and my sentiments. As I always have done, I will continue to do good for my society and the people of my Country. JaiHind ??.. #Supportindiansingers #Banpaksitanisingers ... pic.twitter.com/Zsj3uHi2uU

Currently, Salman Khan is busy in shooting for his upcoming venture- The third instalment of Dabangg- Dabangg 3. Salman has been sharing photos and videos from the shooting sets on his social media handles.
Mika Singh has lend his voice for several hit songs in Salman Khan's movies including Bodyguard, Ready, Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Race 3. Well, time will reveal how Salman Khan supports his long-time friend and how he saves himself.
We hope everything normalises soon and no other artist should act as Mika which would hamper the nation's interests and sentiments of the countrymen as the tension between the two neighbouring countries is escalating with each passing day.
