The choice to scratch off the show was made after the coordinators held a meeting with Shiv Sena boss Uddhav Thackeray. The party has requested that until Pakistan ceased dread exercises, there ought to be no social, donning and political relations with the neighboring nation.
Prior, in a letter to the administration of the Shamughananda Hall, where the show was to be held, Shiv Sena’s cine wing “Chitrapat Sena” said if it proceeded with the show it would need to confront the “resentment of Shiv Sena and the patriotic people”
“Through this letter, we need to pass on to you that in the event that you welcome the Pakistan artist to the show you will need to confront the Shiv Sena’s fury… Which is the reason we request that you preclude the Pakistani performer from coming to the programme or else you will need to confront the resentment of Shiv Sena’s and the enthusiastic individuals of the nation,” Chitrapat Sena Vibhag Pramukh Mangesh Satamkar said in his letter.
This is not the first occasion when that the Sena has communicated its resistance to Pakistani artistes. In April, Pakistani vocalist Atif Aslam’s show in Hadapsar, Pune was scratched off after an in number restriction from Shiv Sena
