Art now sees boundaries as T-series had to remove Atif Aslam’s latest track Kina Sona from their youtube channel and the label also issues an apology for uploading Atif Aslam’s track.
The Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) and the All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) were leading the protest against Pakistani artists.
MNS Cinema Wing president Ameya Khopkar had also put across a hostile message for the label on Twitter, saying: “WARNING TO TSERIES Take down Pakistani singer Atif-Aslam song from your TSeries youtube channel immediately else we will take a major action against @TSeries. #TakeDownAtifAslamSong @itsbhushankumar @mnsadhikrut @rajupatilmanase. [sic]”
T-Series later had to issue a statement, saying: “It has been brought to our notice that the said song has been sung by Atif Aslam and this song was put up on the YouTube channel of T-Series by one of our employees from the promotion team. He was unaware of his action and erred while putting up the song.
“We condemn our mistake and apologise for the same. We assure you that henceforth we will neither release, nor promote the song on any platform of T-Series. Meanwhile, we are removing the said song from our YouTube channel. We also assure you that henceforth we will not be releasing or promoting work by any Pakistani artistes.”
The track was sung from Siddharth Malhotra starrer, Marjaavan.
