The All India Cine Workers Association, on Monday, announced a total ban on Pakistani actors and artistes working in the Indian film industry in the wake of deadly Pulwama terror attack in which over 49 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans lost their lives in a suicide-bombing attack by Pakistan-based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed.

They released an official statement condemning the brutal attacks and If the filmmakers will not follow the given rule, the shooting of the film will be stalled.

Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) observed 'Black Day' on Sunday. No work was done between 2 pm and 4 pm. A prayer session was also held for the brave hearts.

Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), on Saturday, asked Indian music label companies to pull out songs of Pakistani artistes from their albums and videos.

"We have verbally communicated to music companies like T-Series, Sony Music, Venus, Tips Music etc to stop working with Pakistani singers," said Khopkar, adding that if they don't do it immediately "we will take action in our own style."

As a result, T-Series unlisted Atif Aslam's latest music single 'Baarishein' on YouTube. "T-Series has already removed Pakistani artistes' videos from their various channels from February 15 and has decided to ban them all in future. Other music companies are following them," Amey Khopkar, President of MNS Chitrapat Sena, told news agency IANS.

After this step clearly India is trying to isolate Pakistan through diplomatic, military and economic actions.
