We should have a sense of humour: Aditya Roy Kapur on Md Rafi dialogue in 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'

New Delhi: The much-hyped Mohammed Rafi dialogue controversy, surrounding Karan Johar's latest release 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', has now started inviting reactions from various celebrities. Recently, Bollywood actor Aditya Roy Kapur opened up on this issue and expressed his opinion.

"Well, I would just say that, if anyone made fun of me, not to say that I am Mohammad Rafi, I would take it lightly. We should have a sense of humour, it is all said in fun," he was quoted as saying.

In the movie, actress Anushka Sharma says, "Mohammed Rafi gaate nahi, rote the (Mohammed Rafi used to cry, not sing).

Earlier, Rafi's son Shahid, also criticised the Karan for including a dialogue in the film that he found insulting to his star father. 

Mohammed Rafi, who has delivered innumerable hit songs like "Kya hua tera wada", "Baharon phool barsao", "Likhe jo khat tujhe" and "Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko", died in 1980.

The late singer had worked with producer Yash Johar -- Karan Johar's father -- in the 1980 film "Dostana" for which he sang "Mere dost qissa yeh kya ho gaya" and "Salamat rahe dostana".

Meanwhile, the film -- which also features Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan -- is doing well at the box-office.
