The 2016 Uri attack prompted an outcry from various outfits in India. The attack called for a ban on all Pakistani artistes working in India. News agency PTI reports that many Indian Americans have criticised Mika's video. "Celebrating Independence Day is for those who believe in India and its freedom and democracy. It can never happen with Pakistan, and not when they are sponsoring and supporting Pakistani terrorist on the Indian soil," Ramesh Shah, an Indian-American philanthropist told PTI.
Mika Singh, well-known Bollywood singer, has provided playback for hit songs like Aaj Ki Party, Dhinka Chika and Mauja Hi Mauja. His 2016 concert in Birmingham was a hit.
