The Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) has appealed to singers Anup Jalota and Talat Aziz to withdraw their names from upcoming shows in London along with Pakistani actors. Ashoke Pandit, the chief advisor of FWICE, tweeted on Saturday: “#FWICE appeals to Anup Jalota & Talat Aziz to withdraw from their respective shows with Pakistanis.” He further claimed in the tweet: “The promo of Anup Jalota show is anti-India.”

FWICE issued a notice addressed to Talat Aziz, where they mentioned: “We have received a poster where you along with Amrita Chatterjee are taking part in the live concert with Pak artist Tari Khan in London on October 12 and 13, 2019. We have already given our directive that no Indian artist/singer/dancer/anchor/performer last but not the least promoter would work with Pak nationals and Pak artists, in view of the current alarming situation between the two countries. It is therefore our humble request to both of you to immediately cancel the above shows to maintain the dignity and honour of the country. You are an Indian, for which you should be proud.” The letter also threatened the artist with dire consequences if he does not cancel his performance and chooses to go ahead with it. It reads, “In case you don’’t cancel the shows of Ustad Tari Khan and go against the sentiments of Indians.” (IANS)
