New Delhi: Despite facing harsh criticism over backing Pakistani artistes, filmmaker Karan Johar has dared to speak his mind yet again. With his film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ (ADHM) starring Fawad Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma in the lead—a lot has already been said about the filmmaker and his opinion over Pakistani artistes working in India.
According to Bollywood Life.com, KJo in an chat session with Neha Dhupia on her new podcast #NoFilterWithNeha made this big revelation. Karan surely must have felt what it was to be on the couch and face the volley of questions. It so happened that Karan was asked to pick his favourite between Ranbir Kapoor and Fawad Khan, and guess what?
Without thinking twice, the maverick filmmaker took Fawad Khan's name. The report quotes him as saying, “I am going to go with Fawad because he’s the new novelty and Ranbir knows I am going to go with Fawad.”
Now that KJo has made his choice, we really wonder what Fawad has to say on that. ‘ADHM’ will be releasing this Diwali (October 28) and is set to clash with Ajay Devgn’s ‘Shivaay’.
Fawad was last seen opposite Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in Dharma productions' 'Kapoor & Sons'.
