AICWA had previously banned singer Mika Singh for performing live at an event in Pakistan.

Actor Salman Khan had planned a Houston tour for a concert which was allegedly organized by a Pakistani national. He has now cancelled the tour and sources revealed that the Pakistani national was involved in anti India campaigns held abroad. The All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) had appealed to artists in the industry to refrain from indulging into any business with Pakistani nationals.

AICWA has praised Salman Khan for cancelling his Houston tour.

All India Cine Workers Association during the wake of terror attacks in India had informed all the artists in India to not perform or participate in events held by Pakistani nationals. They also threatened to ban the artists if they get involved into any such events or concerts. Singers Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan had earlier announced that they will be at US but will not perform at any event organized by Pakistani national.

The organizer Rehan Siddiqui is allegedly involved in holding anti India protests abroad. Sources have claimed that he collects funds by organizing events and provides money for initiating protests against India to influence Non-resident Indians. He is also allegedly involved in harassing Indians leaving in the US. Internet hailed actor Salman Khan for cancelling the tour and praised him for showing his true will to protect interest of Indians.

Earlier, Mika Singh was banned by AICWA on August 13 for performing at an event in Pakistan. He was banned from attending any events held in the entertainment industry. He was banned unconditionally after he failed to comply to AICWA appeal. This incident took place when there was tensions between India and Pakistan. His ban was later revoked after he apologized publicly to AICWA and assured that he will never entertain any Pakistani national.

A AICWA official on condition of anonymity revealed that celebrities like Salman Khan are very co-operative and show their will to protect the interest of the nation. We appreciate the fact that he has taken such a bold decision and did not think about money before cancelling the show.
