“He was to move to Kartarpur (Narowal) at 9:30 am and return to Lahore by 3:30 pm. Later, Gippy was scheduled to attend a reception at Governor House. On Jan 29, he was to visit Nankana Sahib before his return to India,” an ETPB official told Dawn.

Reportedly, Gippy Grewal was also dedicated to increasing the industry ties across the border. He was to meet many prominent people of the film industry and also had a planned visit to the Governor’s house for discussing future film ventures between people of both countries. 

Last time, Gippy visited Kartarpur Sahib and interacted with the people of Pakistan. He showed great enthusiasm and immense love for the people of Pakistan wherever he visited. This time too, the singer had planned a similar visit to the neighbouring country but according to the reports, he has been barred from entering the country.

This move of the Indian immigration authorities attracted criticism by the film fraternity of Pakistan. Comedian Iftikhar Thakur, who plays the role of ‘Chaudhary Shamsher’ in Amrinder Gill starrer Chal Mera Putt Punjabi film series, said that artists act as the bridge between both the nations. “It is so sad that Grewal was stopped like this from entering Pakistan,” he said.
