New Delhi: Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on Saturday came forward in support of director Karan Johar's upcoming film 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', which also features Pakistani sensation Fawad Khan. The 44-year-old star took to Twitter to share his opinion with the fans.
"The World must learn from us.. We solve all our problems by blaming it on movies and banning it.. #ADHM . With you on this @karanjohar," Anurag tweeted.
On Friday, the Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India decided to boycott 'ADHM' and said their decision has been taken considering the patriotic sentiments of the country amid tensions between India and Pakistan following the September 18 terror attack which killed Indian soldiers.
The attack and its aftermath had a spill over into the entertainment worlds of both countries, and while some outfits are resisting the release of "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", its makers have maintained the movie will release as scheduled on October 28 -- two days before the festival of lights, Diwali.
