Famous Bollywood singer Mika Singh recently performed at a wedding in Karachi, Pakistan, which raised a furore on social media with fans calling him out on the micro blogging site for his decision. Reportedly, Mika performed at a family event of former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf's relative. Certain reports allege that Mika charged around USD 150,000 (Rs 1.06 crore) for the performance.
Mika's performance at the event came at the heels of Indian government's decision to revoke the special status granted to Jammu and Kashmir. After the Indian government repealed Articles 370 and 35(A), relations between the two governments have worsened and fans were miffed by the fact that Mika performed at the wedding ceremony of the former Pakistani president's relative.
Some fans took to Twitter to express their feelings in the matter. One user wrote, "A traitor may not have been spotted in Pak; but u've brought one to the notice of Indian Tweeple, now! (sic), while another one sarcastically commented, "@MikaSingh hope u were paid well (sic)."
