Playback singer Mika Singh on Wednesday issued an apology for performing in Pakistan, after he was banned by a film workers’ body.The Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) has now lifted the `ban’ which prevented actors, directors, cine workers to work with Mika.
At a press conference on Wednesday, Mika said, “It is a coincidence that I went there and Article 370 happened. If I made a mistake, then I apologise to the federation and the entire nation.”
In his justification, the singer said that he had made a commitment to the client “long back”.
The media, however, started countering Mika with questions like why he went to Pakistan in first place after the Pulwama attack, Mika started a heated argument.
The FWICE had `banned’ the singer after he performed at a wedding in Karachi. The cine body had warned super star like Salman Khan too not to perform with him at a US concert, otherwise he too would face the ban.
As per reports, Mika had performed in Karachi on August 8 at the wedding of a relative of former Pakistani President, General Pervez Musharraf, in Karachi.
Mika’s presence became known after pictures and videos of his performance appeared on social media. He later faced flak on social media for performing in Pakistan.
