Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil became the first film to come under fire for featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. Karan broke his silence about the forthcoming film, which will release on October 28, and said that he is hurt on being labelled “anti-national” ahead of the release of his directorial and production venture Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

He said he would not engage with talent from Pakistan “in the circumstance”.

Meanwhile, a host of other Bollywood celebs also voiced their support for Karan Johar and said it was extremely unfortunate that the filmmaker is being bullied for no wrong.
The celebs shared their views on the issue at the 18th Edition of MAMI (Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image) Film Festival yesterday.

Condemning the move of putting a ban on actors from the neighbouring country and voicing her support for ADHM, filmmaker Zoya Akhtar said, “It is very unfortunate that a film and a filmmaker gets targeted like that. He didn’t do anything wrong, he has not broken the law. Visas are being granted by the government, it’s legal for people to work here. He shot the film at a time when the situation was pleasant.”
