In an attempt to augment the relations between India and Iran to fight terrorism, the Union Government of India has removed Iran from the restricted visa list. Iran-India-Flag

India envisages Iran as a supporter in fighting terrorism that is hinted through the increasing threats by Islamic terror groups.

” The order means that Iranians can easily apply for visa at our consulate in iran and each application will not have to be forwarded to [the] Intelligence Bureau and [the] Research and Analysis Wing here for verification,” a senior government official said.

The decision to strike off Iran from the prior referral category (PRC) of countries, comes after Ajit Doval convened a high level meeting a month back in order to explore the possibilities of lifting restrictions on visas for Iranians. The PRC list includes countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and China.

Rapper and music composer Badshah, who is excited about his new reality show “Dil Hai Hindustani 2”, says that rapping is not taken seriously in India as an art form.

Badshah was interacting with the media at the launch of Star Plus channel’s forthcoming reality show along with singer Sunidhi Chauhan on Monday.

Badshah, who has delivered some chart-busting rap songs like “Chull”, “Saturday Saturday” and most recent “Tareefan” is eager to spread awareness about rap as an art form.

Talking about it, he said: “Rapping along with dance and stand-up comedy is not taken seriously as an art form in India and this misconception should change.”

“That is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to be a judge on the show. But apart from that, I’m here to have fun as well, and have a better connection with the audience,” he added.

The rapper is also gearing up to produce Bollywood and Punjabi movies and also launching a web series soon through his production house.

Talking about the future of the digital platform, Badshah said: “I think it (digital media) is the future, so it’s very important for any production house right now to concentrate on digital media.”

Sunidhi and Badshah will be judging the second season of the reality show “Dil Hai Hindustani”, along with Bollywood singer and composer Pritam.
