Famous bollywood singer Mika Singh has recently found himself in trouble over his recent performance in Karachi, Pakistan.
The singer performed at the wedding festivities of the daughter of former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf’s close relative.
However, his performance, the video of which went viral over the weekend, has stirred a furore in both India and Pakistan. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) senior leader Syed Khurshid Shah said the Pakistani government must find out who issued the security clearance and granted visas to Indian singer Mika Singh and his 14-member troupe to visit Pakistan.
Mika Singh faces severe backlash for his performance
“This is a time when there is a ban on Indian films, dramas, shows, and Pakistan has made its views clear to the Indian government. Even if visas were issued early on they should have been cancelled,” Shah said.
After the Indian government repealed Articles 370 and 35(A), relations between the two governments have worsened and fans were miffed by the fact that Mika performed at the wedding ceremony of the former Pakistani president’s relative.
Here’s how people reacted:
SHAME on such wealth. SHAME on such affluence.
And shame on everyone who gave clearance for such an event.

When Bollywood gets banned, Pakistanis get singers flown down to sing bollywood songs for them.
