Bollywood famous singer Mika Singh and his 14-member troupe after performing at a wedding in Karachi, Pakistan have drawn ire in India.
As per reports, it was a wedding of a Pakistan-based billionaire’s daughter, a relative of former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharaff.
Mika Singh charged US$ 150,000 (₹1.06 crore) for his performance.
Mika presence in Pakistan came into light when some of the guests uploaded videos of his performance on social media.
Singh allegedly performed at a ceremony on August 8.
Syed Khursheed Shah, opposition leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party, said that the government must find out who gave the security clearance and visas to the Indian singer and his 14-member troupe to visit Pakistan at a time when the country had suspended diplomatic and trade relations with India.
The groom was a big fan of Mika Singh and wanted to see him sing live, reports a newspaper.
Mika’s Indian fans have expressed their anger on social media.
“Mika Singh Paaji (brother) we Indians gave you so much love… And in a situation like that when Pak banned all trade ties with us, sending terrorists across the border, our tensions are very high right now. Why did you go to Pakistan for a show? Few bucks are bigger than India?” one of the Twitter users said.

When Bollywood gets banned, Pakistanis get singers flown down to sing bollywood songs for them.
