Read How The Connection Between Pakistani Artists And Black Money Got Exposed

Published on 16 November, 2016 at 6:01 pm By

A sting operation carried out by News18 India on the agents of Pakistani artistes like Fawad Khan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shafaqat Amanat Ali, Mawra Hocane and Imran Abbas Naqvi shows black money is used to crack deals with these artistes.

The sting operation titled ‘Namak Haraam’ was carried out over a fortnight in Mumbai and Delhi. The channel’s undercover reporters caught on camera the agents of the Pakistani artists demanding majority of their fee in ‘black money’.

The fee was for appearance in wedding ceremonies.

The modus operandi of all of these stars was same. While a few demanded part of the fee in cash, others wanted it transferred to their bank accounts in Australia or Dubai.

In formal contract only a small amount was to be showed as compared to the amount agreed upon.

The method clearly depicts that it is an established process that has been going on in India for quite some time.

As per the sting, Ms Toral Soni, Fawad’s manager in India, demanded Rs 50 lakh for a two-hour appearance. He demanded that the payment should be made in black and white. The black money component was to be 25 per cent of the deal amount and the rest was to be transferred to the actor`s UAE-based bank account, the statement alleged.

So during his brief visit to India, Fawad earns Rs 50 lakh in India and every single penny goes to a foreign nation.



Singers Shafqat Amanat Ali’s manager and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s representative demanded Rs 35 lakh and Rs 65 lakh respectively. While Ali’s former’s contract showed just Rs 8 lakh, the latter’s showed Rs 23 lakh, including taxes, News18 India said.

Actor Imran’s manager demanded Rs 35 lakh for a performance, with Rs 32 lakh to be paid in black while the contract was to reflect a fee of just Rs 300,000.

Likewise, the agents and managers of other Pakistani artists had similar black money payment facilities readily available for the organizers.

The activity clearly violates statutory laws since all the Pakistani artists come to India on a work permit obtained through the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for professional engagement. The insistence for payment in black money also violates Service Tax and Income Tax laws.
