The recent surfacing up of the Bollywood ban on Pakistani talent and artists has definitely taken a turn for the worst, when the Indian music company responsible for collaborating with Atif Aslam removed his name from the song he sang for Baaghi 2.
As can be seen, under the official YouTube post by T-Series, one can find all available details on the producers, actors and composers but the singer’s name seems to have been crossed off that list since it is nowhere to be found!
Here is what it looks like:
“Presenting the latest romantic song of 2018 “O Saathi” featuring Ronnie & Neha will take you on a nostalgic trip to your college romance. The rebel for love has a story to tell and it’s sure to melt your hearts. Love is definitely in the air with O Saathi out now.”
“Baaghi 2 is an action film produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Ahmed Khan. A Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment production, presented by Fox Star Studios, the movie stars Tiger Shroff & Disha Patani in lead role. The movie is set to release on 30th March 2018.”
Fans were wondering where their favourite singer’s name was and had to end up giving Atif his due credits themselves!
The Indian far-right has coerced and caused problems in the past for both Pakistani artists and the Indian producers/directors who choose to star them, however this is an all new low in this political vendetta that should leave artists on both sides of the border out of it!
