The entire film industry is taking measures to make sure they stand united with the nation in solidarity. In a strong move, All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has banned Pakistani artistes from working in the Indian film industry. The official statement released by the association read, “We’re 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 strong action will be taken against them. Nation comes first, we stand with our nation.”
Cultural exchange has been stopped from India as several artistes have withdrawn their names from the events aimed at promoting India-Pakistan relationship. Even Indian music company T-Series unlisted and removed songs sung by Pakistani artistes from YouTube. In fact, the musicians and producers are now replacing the recorded songs sung by Pakistani artistes with the voices of Indian singers.
Earlier, actors like Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Vicky Kaushal, Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan, Ayushmann Khurrana and others took to social media to express their anger and disappointment over the cowardly attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.
