Mumbai , Sep 11(Online): The Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) has requested the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to cancel the visa of singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh, who accepted the invitation for an event which is being promoted by Rehan Siddiqi, who is of Pakistani origin.
The performance is scheduled to take place in the US on September 21. In a letter written to the MEA, the film body stated, “We, at FWICE want to draw your kind attention towards the unbridled race of artists, singers, dancers, anchors and performers at the behest of a Pak National Rehan Siddiqi promoter of shows in America despite strict warnings given to them.”
“We have come to know that the performing singer and actor from Punjab Diljit Dosanjh has accepted the invitation of Rehan Siddiqi for staging his performance at the United States on September 21, 2019,” the statement read.
FWICE requested for the visa cancellation of the actor and his group to restrain their performance as it will be labelled as “anti-national.”
“It is, therefore, our humble request to you to cancel the visa of Mr. Diljit Dosanjh and his troupe or the application for visa be not granted to restrain their performance in America as it will be labelled anti-national,” the film body said.
