In the wake of the deadly terror attacks in Kashmir’s Pulwama district, the entire film fraternity took to social media to express their views on the devastating incident. That’s not all, All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) also took a strong move and announced a total ban on Pakistani artists and actors working in India. The next big step was taken by B-Town superstar Salman Khan. As per the recent reports, the actor has asked his production house Salman Khan Films to remove a particular song sung by Pakistani singer Atif Aslam in Notebook.
Reports add that no new singer has been roped in yet and the track sung by Atif will be re-recorded in just a few days. A statement released by the film’s makers earlier also said that the makers of Notebook, which features debutants Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl in lead roles, have decided to extend financial help to the victims' families and will be donating Rs 22 lakh. The makers also stated that the team is grateful to the CRPF jawans as a major portion of the film was shot at Kashmir in the month of October and November in 2018.
Coming to the AICWA letter, it reads, "All Indian Cine Workers Association strongly condemns the brutal terrorist attack on our soldiers at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir. Our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims. AWCWA stands with the nation in confronting such terror and inhumanity."Read More
