Babul Supriya demanded a complete boycott of Pakistani artists
It all started with singer-turned-politician Babul Supriyo raising questions over Pakistani singers getting work in Bollywood. He targeted Rahat's song 'Ishtehaar' and asked the makers of 'Welcome To New York' to replace his voice with an Indian singer's.
