The man with the melodious voice Atif Aslam is undoubtedly the biggest rock star not only in Pakistan but in India as well.
Fever of Atif Aslam has been at its peak in India ever since he started to lend his voice for Bollywood movies.
However, Pakistani artists have been banned to work in Bollywood by the government after the Pulwama attack that took place in the ٰIndian Occupied Kashmir.
Recently, Atif Aslam was asked about how the ban affected him personally and his total income.
The singer appeared on TV show Aik Din Geo Kay Saath where he revealed that the ban did not affect him much.
My main source of income has always been concerts and they are still running successfully. I recently did a concert in Nairobi and will be doing a concert in Mauritius very soon. Though the label I was working for (T-series) removed my song initially, they later restored the tracks.
Moreover, it was also revealed that the Indian record label T-series lost approximately 1 million subscribers after removing Atif Aslam’s song.
When asked about this, he said:
It happens. I don’t know. I think I’m really loved over there (India) by fans. Border-ban has appeared often but I personally don’t know the reason behind why my songs were taken off and then were back on YouTube. The fan following in Pakistan and India is huge, which is perhaps gauged by the numbers. I feel it is due to the response of the fans.
