In Response To The Ban, Atif Aslam Has Refused To Promote His Own Bollywood Song

By Iman Zia | 1 Mar, 2018

Indian minister Babul Supriyo earlier called for a temporary ban on Pakistani artists working in Indian cinema. In remarks to IANs, the politician stated that Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s vocals in track ‘Istehar’ from ‘Welcome To New York’ should be replaced with Indian vocals instead.

The singer-turned-minister stated that the death of Indian soldiers in the border prompted his request to ban Pakistanis from working in India – be it IPL (where a ban has already been implemented) or Bollywood (where a ban might eventually be legalized considering the uproar).

‘Sehmi Hai Dhadkan’ was released online on 22nd February, and Atif Aslam has thus not promoted it at all

According to Indian Publication IANs, the singer has refused to promote the song on any social media platform. The producers however have rebuked this claim and stated that he will be promoting it; “I’m not sure why he isn’t taking part in the activity, but, as a producer, I see that work promised hasn’t been executed” says Sanjeev Kumar.

When asked about Babul Supriyo’s comments, Sanjeev said “normally, such statements are made by fringe groups. When a minister says it, it leaves an impact on more people.”
