New Delhi: Since the Uri attack and the subsequent protests that followed it, Pakistani actors had to bear the brunt of political outrage as they were banned from staying in the country. Many Bollywood personalities supported the outrage, except for few who stood steadfastly for ‘art before nationality’.
Director Anurag Kashyap on Sunday unequivocally expressed support for Karan Johar and his film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ on Twitter with a sarcastic remark on the latest development.
Kashyap tweeted, “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 Kashyap also raised questions about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s abrupt trip to Pakistan where he met Pak PM Nawaz Sharif.
“Sir, you haven’t yet said sorry for your visit to Pakistan? Why?” tweeted Anurag, who later retracted the tweet.
Kashyap’s observation on this prickly issue in the country comes in the backdrop of Pakistani actors who were recently banned from India. Not only that, Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who starred in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, became a point of contention which eventually led to protests calling for a complete ban of the movie itself.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will be releasing in cinemas on October 28.
