After the controversial ‘Hamara Pakistan’ comment, Bollywood singer Mika Singh has canceled his concert in Houston, Chicago, industrialist and President Trump’s Indian American aide Shalabh Kumar claimed with a tweet.

“Gland to confirm Mika not going to Houston. Thanks @MikaSingh to agree. @SriSri @yogrishiramdev @narendramodi @Ramlal @rammadhavbjp @imanasvi” Kumar wrote.

Singh was scheduled to perform in Houston on August 12, ahead of the independence days of Pakistan and India on August 14 and 15 respectively. The singer’s “Hamara Pakistan” remark was in a video, which he posted on the internet for the promotions of the Houston show.

In the video, Singh urged his fans and supporters from India and Pakistan to join the Independence Day celebrations in the Texas city, along with a local Pakistan-origin promoter of his show.
