All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) on Tuesday banned singer Mika Singh from the Indian film industry for performing at an event in Karachi, Pakistan, reported Hindustan Times.

The film body further put an unconditional ban on the singer and boycotted him from all the movies and music contracts with the entertainment companies.

“AICWA will make sure that no one in India works with Mika Singh and if anyone does, they will face legal consequences in the court of law. When the tension between the countries is at the peak, Mika Singh puts money above the nation’s pride,” the film association said.

The association also sought the intervention of Information and Broadcasting ministry in the matter.
