Pakistani artistes were banned from working in India after the 2016 Uri attack, in which 18 soldiers were killed and several others injured. There were widespread protests against Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016) and Rahul Dholakia’s Raees (2017) for featuring Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan, respectively. The films were shot with Pakistani actors before the ban was announced.

The hashtag #UnbanAtifAslam was trending on Indian Twitter when my song was removed from the soundtrack of the movie Notebook,” he added.
