"We will not allow any shoot of Colors if they go ahead and ban products of the programme sponsors," Amey Khopkar, who heads the The Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena (MNCKS) told PTI.
Khopkar said he has written a letter to Bhosle asking her to not to take part in the programme. "We have also asked Colors not to invite Pakistani singers and warned the channel of consequences if it airs the programme with these guest artistes," he said.

He also asked people not to watch such shows.
