Permissions to perform across Indo-Pak borders should be made easier: Kumar Sanu

Bollywood singer

Kumar Sanu

says it’s important to make it easier for musicians from both, India and Pakistan, to perform across the border.



With some Pakistani ­artists such as

Ghulam Ali

, Atif Aslam, and Raahat Fateh Ali Khan facing ­trouble with their Indian ­performances in the past, and some Indian singers such as Lata Mangeshkar and Palash Sen ­suffering the same fate in Pakistan, Sanu says, "It’s all a question of fixing the feeling of ­professional ­jealousy."



The 54-year-old adds that Bollywood is very accepting when it comes to Pakistani artists.



"Our music industry is very open-minded and warm at heart; we have space for every artist. Also, each song has its own destiny. A singer will sing a song ­irrespective of the fact that he belongs to India or Pakistan, or any other ­country for that matter. So, I don’t think there should be an issue with nationality."
