A few hours after Karan Johar announced that his film starring a Pak star will be released on Diwali weekend to bring joy to movie goers he issued an appeal on video. In his message Karan Johar invoked his love for India in an effort to assuage many who have accused him of picking profit over patriotism. In the defence of his decision Karan Johar listed three reasons to explain why he can't defer the release of the movie.
One of the reasons stood out for its sheer hypocrisy. Karan Johar said that not releasing the film would put to waste the blood, sweat and tears of his crew that has worked over time to make this film a reality.
But in doing so Karan Johar seems to be suggesting that the blood, sweat and tears of his crew is somehow more precious than the blood spilled by our jawans in defence of this country.
