Recently India's popular music label T-Series had uploaded or song 'Kinna Sona' sung by Pakistani singer Atif Aslam. The song was uploaded on YouTube and after observing this, Ameya Khopkar, member of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) warned Bhushan Kumar, the owner of T-series, asking him to immediately delete the song from the YouTube channel.

Khopkar took to social media to share the same and stated that if the song was not deleted or removed, MNS will take action regarding the same and the label will have to face consequences.

It is said that, following this, T-Series' Bhushan Kumar recently has issued an apology and stated that the song was removed from the social media channel. Reports state that the song was uploaded on the YouTube channel by an employee of the promotions team and the label was assured this will no longer be released or promoted on T-Series. 

The decision from MNS came after 'Kinna Sona' released on the channel, following which several took to Twitter asking the label to takedown Atif Aslam's song.  Eventually, this started to trend on Twitter. The song is from the film Marjaavan which stars Siddharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria in lead roles.

MNS and several other fans also blamed T-Series for promoting a Pakistani artist, despite FWICE's directives to ban Pakistani artist in India. The statement was released by FWICE in April, and read, "We have to strictly inform all the members of our affiliates to kindly note that the Non-Cooperation Circular is valid and subsisting and anyone found cooperating or working in any manner with any Pakistani artistes, singers, and technicians, in any mode or media of Entertainment will be subject to strict disciplinary action initiated by FWICE which everyone may please note."

However, many fans also shared the message stating that music has no boundaries and asked the song to not be removed.

Besides this, popular singer Sonu Nigam, in a recent announcement, also informed about the 'mafia' business in the music industry blaming T-Series for several reasons.
