They say that music knows no language and it is above all caste and creed. It is a religion in itself, a bond which connects people breaking all barriers and boundaries. But it is a different ball game all together, when it comes down to India and Pakistan’s involvement in any musical event. In such a scenario, politics takes an upper hand in the say.
Recently, Raj Thackrey’s political party, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, has issued a ultimatum to the makers of the show, “Sur Kshetra”, to stop them involving Pakistani singers and artists on their show. They have also requested the renowned singer, Asha Bhosle, to withdraw her name from the show, which she is judging along with the other Pakistani artists like, Atif Aslam and Abida Parveen.
MNS has warned the makers and the channels of disrupting the shoot if required. MNS has strongly objected to Pakistani singers being the part of the show.
The makers and the two channels, ‘Colors’ and ‘Sahara One’, on which the show will have a simultaneous telecast, are in a fix as the first phase of the shooting the episodes is complete and ready for telecast.
