Lahore, 14th April: The Indian film industry has been strictly forbidden to work with their Pakistani counterparts, even if it is a digital collaboration.
According to reports of Baaghi TV, the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) said, that it had “issued total non-cooperation circular advising all members not to work in any manner whatsoever with all Pakistani artistes, singers, and technicians”.
Taran Adarsh, an Indian critic has shared a statement saying that the Indian artists have been working in collaboration with the Pakistani artists violating the rules by the government. He particularly pointed out the incident where some Indian musicians have worked with Pakistan’s superstar Rahat Fateh Ali Khan on online collaboration.
The FWICE has warned the artists that the federation will take strict action if any artist is found working with the counterparts from Pakistan. FWICE has been reported about the upcoming projects between the artists across the border.
At this time of crisis around the world, the drastic step taken by the Indian movie federation is not a welcome sign. This is another depiction of their regressive thinking and poor idealogy. Such type of behavior should not be conducted by any entertainment industry.
