Karan Johar’s upcoming film 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' is now the subject of intense political debate. Recently through a video message, Karan Johar has expressed his grief over accusations against him for being "anti-national".
"There were efforts made by our government for peaceful relationship with our neighbouring country and I respected those endeavours and efforts then and I respect the sentiments today," said Karan Johar.
Karan has also appealed to not interrupt the screening of the film as many Indians are linked with the film. Johar said "Over 300 Indians in my crew have put their blood, sweat and tears into my film and I don’t think it is fair to them to face any kind of turbulence from other fellow Indians."
The Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) said it would intensify its opposition to Karan Johar’s film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ as it features Pakistani actors. One of the MNS leaders asid “We will oppose the screening of the movie everywhere in the state. If any multiplex operator dares to screen the film, they (operators) should remember that multiplexes are decorated with expensive glass sheets.”
The film 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is scheduled to be released on 28 October 2016, just before the Diwali.
