Over the past few days, Mika Singh has been banned by the Federation of Western India Cine Employees association (FWICE), after he performed at a wedding reception in Pakistan. He is expected to meet members of the FWICE today to offer his version of the event before the body gives its final verdict. Interestingly, despite the ban imposed on him since last week, Mika Singh has been included as part of Salman Khan’s upcoming event.
A six-city gig across the US — titled Up, Close and Personal With Salman Khan — has been scheduled for next week where the superstar will be interacting and indulging in photo opportunities with fans. The gig has been organized by Sohail Khan’s event management team with Jordy Patel of JA Events in India and Bhavesh Patel in the US. Singh appears to be part of Houston’s leg that is scheduled for August 28.
When mid-day reached out to Jordy to question about Mika Singh’s involvement in the show, he said, “We are only dealing with Bhavesh Patel as our contract is with him. Some local promoter in the US must have signed on Mika and added him to the line-up. Salman will have nothing to do with Mika at the event. They will not even interact on stage.”
Mika Singh had shared a video claiming that he was coming to Houston with “my big brother Salman Khan” for the event. Jordy suggests, “Mika must use the name of Salman to promote itself, which is what everyone in the sector is doing.
