Despite the ban on Pakistani artists, it seems as though Bollywood projects are finding a way to include Pakistanis. Atif Aslam will be singing for Tubelight, while Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui will be appearing alongside Sri Devi in Mom.
Another Pak-India collaboration in the pipeline is Kalabaaz Dil fame, Aima Baig. The 28-year-old sensation is all set to sing for an upcoming film. Speaking to a leading daily, she said,
“I am indeed working on a song from a Bollywood production which is a duet with my favourite singer. It was a dream come true. I remember being absolutely star-struck when I met the makers and the film’s male lead in Dubai.”
“I think it’s pretty stupid, a political war between two countries doesn’t have anything to do with art. Saba Qamar and Mahira Khan, even Fawad Khan, I feel have done brilliant work in India and they’re so capable of achieving much more. I hope it gets resolved soon. I feel great when I see how filmmakers from across the border are still reaching out to Pakistani artists. They’re not backing out and I commend them for it.”
