anurag kashyap, kashyap, anurag kashyap modi, modi anurag kashyap, ae dil hai mushkil, fawad khan, pakistani actors, anurag kashyap tweet, latest news, indian express Anurag Kashyap has lent his support to filmmaker Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

After the Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India decided not to release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, many from the film industry came out in support of Karan Johar, the maker of the film. But nobody went as far as Anurag Kashyap who dragged Prime Minister Narendra Modi into the controversy surrounding Pakistani artistes by seeking an apology for his Pakistan trip last year, the time when apparently Fawad was shooting for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Kashyap asserted that the burden of Modi’s Pakistan trip fell on the tax payers while the film shot then was on money on which someone pays interest. In a series of tweets, the director questioned Modi’s silence over the whole controversy and attacked the government by saying “The World must learn from us..We solve all our problems by blaming it on movies and banning it..#ADHM. With you on this @karanjohar.”

Kashyap’s tweet didn’t go down well with many as he was trolled for bringing in Modi into the issue which ‘doesn’t make sense’. The COEAI has categorically said that it is stalling the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil “keeping in mind the patriotic feeling and the national interest in mind.” The officials of COEAI have said that the decision was based on “public sentiments” following the Uri and Pathankot attacks on Army base.

Now, the COEAI is neither a government-run body nor an association of all exhibitors in the country. It’s an association of single screen cinema owners from Nashik, Pune and some parts of Bombay. It has only requested its members not to play the film. A lot of them may play and a lot of them may not. The multiplexes have also not stalled the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. So there is no direct threat to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. In fact, Pahlaj Nihlani, the CBFC chief, has also criticsed COEAI for its decision. So what actually is Kashyap worried about is not clear.

Moreover, Kashyap’s industry itself is divided over the issue of Pakistani actors working in Indian films. From Nana Patekar to Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn, all have expressed solidarity with the Indian soldiers who died fighting terrorists in Uri and said country comes first for them. Choreographer and filmmaker Farah Khan has also asserted that there is no dearth of talent in India and when it comes to movie making she will choose to work with Indian actors than their Pakistani counterparts. Supporting government’s stand on isolation of Pakistan, actor Randeep Hooda had tweeted “We are trying to isolate Pakistan economically & diplomatically so the cultural isolation must follow.”

When there is a difference of opinion over the issue, Kashyap’s rant against Modi looks senseless. He also tried to appear naive after the backlash on social media, saying he would rather ask questions directly to the prime minister. Well, he should have done that earlier. The filmmaker also asked media not to contact him as it will be a waste of time. Now this highlights Kashyap’s imprudence as he is the same guy who once tweeted his bruised eye picture saying had a result of a brawl with an MMA fighter. And when this was published he took to twitter to explain how those images were actually part of a bet to check what would make news. According to him, media reports without cross checking. So what should they cross check when it is coming directly from the horse’s mouth. Well, he may have won the bet but lost the credibility.
