Singer Mika Singh disappoints fans by posting video urging them to jointly celebrate Indo-Pak Independence Day
We all know how Bollywood singer Mika Singh has landed himself in controversies in the past leaving both the B-Town and his fans startled by pulling off one antic or another to hog the limelight.

From kissing Bollywood's popular item girl Rakhi Sawant on his birthday bash to slapping a doctor during a live concert in Delhi, Mika is our been there, done that kind of guy. If fact, it's difficult to segregate Mika Singh from controversy.

In a more recent development, in what can only be labeled as an insensitive and irresponsible way of promoting his upcoming US show scheduled to be held in Houston on August 12, Mika posted a video urging his fans and supporters from both India and Pakistan to come together and jointly celebrate their independence day on August 12.

In the video message released on July 24 on social media, the singer is heard saying that he is set to perform a special music show on the occasion of the independence days of both countries which fall a day apart from each other. Also, seen in the video is Pakistani singer Rehan seated next to Mika.

However, what irked the people most is that in the video,while referring to the neighbouring country, Mikasaid, 'Humara Pakistan'.The singer has already received a lot of backlash from people on social media for obvious reasons.

His video could not have been more ill-timed as our country prepares to celebrate its 70th independence day on August 15. His gunning for a joint celebration of independence comes across as a cruel joke in wake of day-to-day border violations from Pakistan resulting in killing of innocent civilians and people of the armed forces.

Many people even raised questions over Mika's 'patriotism' asking, how could he compromise with India's interests?

After getting a lot of negative responses from displeased fans, Mika released another video message on Twitter in which he is heard saying that he is gonna celebrate 'India's Independence Day' on August 13 in Chicago, without mentioning Pakistan. He tweeted: "Hey #Chicago let's celebrate independence on 13thof proud to be an indian and bring your family and friends..Jai hind."
