After facing a ban by All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) for his performance in Karachi in Pakistan, Bollywood singer Mika Singh has finally spoken up.
In a letter to the film body, Mika has said that he should be heard in the matter before a ban is imposed on him and opinion is made about him.
AICWA has banned the singer on Wednesday, while another body Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) also called for a boycott.
Mika on Sunday has posted a video on Twitter with BN Tiwari, President of FWICE and wrote, “I would like to sincerely thank Mr. BN Tiwari and #FWICE for being so understanding towards me and my sentiments. As I always have done, I will continue to do good for my society and the people of my Country. JaiHind.”
In the video the president has said that Mika has been invited for discussion after he wrote a letter to the organisation.

“Mika has said in the letter that he is willing to agree to all things the confederation decides. In his letter Mika says that ‘If I have done something wrong, I am ready to apologise to the nation, but until you hear me out please don’t impose any kind of ban on me,” Tiwari can be heard as saying.
Remember, the decision to ban Mika was taken almost a week after he performed on August 8 at the wedding of the daughter of former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf’s billionaire cousin.
AICWA had announced to boycott him from all the movies and music contracts with the entertainment companies and called for an unconditional ban on him.
The singer had sparked a controversy after his presence in the city was confirmed after several attendees uploaded his performance videos with a crew of 14 people, on social media.
