The Federation Of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) has sent a notice to Indian promoters Karl Kalra & Nirmal Dhaliwal to cancel their show with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
It is therefore our humble request to both of you to immediately cancel the above shows to maintain the dignity and honour of your country. You are. India, for which you should be proud. Upon discovering the poster for the USA and Canada based event which features the singer, FWICE stated in their notice, “We have already given our directive that no artist/singer/dancer/anchor/performer and last but not least, promoter would work with [Pakistani] nationals and [Pakistani] artists in view of the current alarming situation between the two countries.”
After Diljit Dosanjh postponed his US tour on request of FWICE, the association has been keeping an eye out on similar instances.
A few days before asking the promoters to cancel their tour with RFAK, FWICE had issued a notice to singers Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, and Kumar Sanu for performing at an event in USA which was organised by a Pakistani.
