Karan Johar is quite evidently drawing ire for roping in Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in his much awaited film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. The filmmaker, who has issued his statement through his recent video, was earlier ridiculed by singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya. The popular singer post the Uri attacks, slammed Johar and Mahesh Bhatt for 'breeding and feeding' Pakistani actors. He also called him a lover of Fawad.

Johar, who uses social media platform Twitter to voice his opinion and promote his projects has hinted at quitting the microblogging site.

For the uninitiated, the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena said it would increase its opposition to Karan Johar's soon-to-be-released film and also issued a veiled threat of vandalism to the multiplexes if they screened it.

The opposition by MNS and some other political parties to films with actors from Pakistan in the aftermath of Uri terror attack has put a question mark on the fate of Johar's film which features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

"We will oppose the screening of the movie everywhere in the state. If any multiplexoperator dares to screen the film, they (operators) should remember that multiplexes are decorated with expensive glass sheets," MNS leader Amey Khopkar said.
