A solidarity march in awake of ‘Pulwama martyrs’ at Film City in Goregaon was attended by members of 24 film associations, including Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) and Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA).
The protest saw participation from major film bodies and the association of cinematographers, make-up men, costumes, junior artists, editors, fighters and dancers.
President of IFTDA, Ashoke Pandit, vehemently opposed the inclusion of any Pakistani actors in Bollywood films. He also said that music companies will no longer sign contracts with Pakistani singers.
“No Bollywood filmmaker will take any Pakistani artiste in his film. Even music companies will stop working with Pakistani singers,” Pandit told India Today Television.
“If any filmmaker or music company does not listen to the FWICE, we will stop the shooting of any film with Pakistani artistes and vandalise its sets,” he warned.
