Bollywood sensation Salman Khan canceled his live performance set to happen in the US as the event is said to be organized by a Pakistani person.
According to an international news agency, Rehan Siddiqui was the organizer of the event. He is famous for arranging events in the US that invite stars from Pakistan and India.
Indian celebrities had also refused to perform or attend events earlier that were organized by Paksitani promoters.
Signers such as Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, and Udit Narayan had also denied attending an event that was arranged by Pakistani promoters in the US
Kumar Sanu had said in a video message, “Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan and I are coming to the United States to perform but we will not attend any show promoted by a Pakistani. Promoters who are from other countries have nothing to worry about. We will be performing in their shows,”
These three singers were invited to sing together at a show in the US in 2017. However, Moazzma Hunain, a Pakistani national, was among the organizers.
However, a few of the celebrities in India have spoken over the ongoing protests against the controversial citizenship bill.
Bollywood actress and Priyanka Chopra’s cousin Parineeti Chopra said, “If this is what’s gonna happen every time a citizen expresses their view, forget #CAB, we should pass a bill and not call our country a democracy anymore! Beating up innocent human beings for speaking their mind? BARBARIC”.
Actress Huma Qureshi wrote, “This government (Modi govt) has failed the people of this country. See what is happening on the streets. India is protesting…You cannot divide us”.
She also condemned the violence against students and said that citizens have the right to protest peacefully.
