On February 14th, an explosive-laden van was rammed into a CRPF convoy by a suicide bomber, killing 40 CRPF personnel. In the wake of the attacks, protests and calls for boycott Pakistani artists, companies and other products flooded television and social media.

The tremors have been felt in Bollywood too. Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi have cancelled their trip to Karachi Arts Council, Jashn e Rekhta Festival was cancelled in Dubai and Ajay Devgn has announced that his film Total Dhamaal would not be released in Pakistan. And now music production company T-Series has quietly removed two tracks of Pakistani artists Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan from its YouTube.

MNS Chitrapat Sena head Amey Khopar told a news agency that they have verbally communicated to all music companies not to work with Pakistani artists. “These companies should stop it immediately or we will take action in our own style,” he said.

Atif Aslam’s song Baarishein was a collaboration with T-Series and Nushrat Bharucha was appearing in the video. It would now not appear anywhere in an internet search. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan had also recently sung, Tere Bin for Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan’s film, Simmba which was a rehash of the original Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan song.

Post Uri attacks, Pakistani artists were also banned in India and were given ’48 hours’ to leave India. During those times, Karan Johar’s film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil faced a backlash from some circles for casting Fawad Khan and Imran Abbas in his film.
