The Sour relation shared by India and Pakistan is known to everyone. The recent decision of scrapping Article 370, which gave J&K special status, has fueled the resentment among the two nations .
With Pakistan announcing the ban on screening of Indian films, amid the decision of scrapping down article 370 by Indian government, even the Indian film industry does not seems to be in the mood of making up with them.
Reacting on the Pakistan’s decision of banning the screening of Indian films, All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) too, demanded a blanket ban on Pakistani artists. They wrote a letter to the PM in that context.

“AICWA will make sure that no one in India works with Mika Singh and if anyone does, they will face legal consequences in the court of law,” the statement added.
“When the tension between the countries is at the peak, Mika Singh puts money above the nation’s pride,” the film association said.
“AICWA takes a stand of boycotting all his association with movie production houses, music companies and online music content providers,” AICWA President Suresh Shyamlal Gupta said in a media statement.
