MUMBAI: Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has come out in support of Karan Johar, whose upcoming directorial venture

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featuring Fawad Khan, is facing trouble after cinema owners association decided to stall the release of movies starring Pakistani artistes.

Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) yesterday announced that they would not screen movies starring Pakistani artistes in the four states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa.

“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,” Kashyap tweeted.

Johar’s movie stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead. The decision taken by COEAI mainly covers single screen theatres and comes amid tension between India and Pakistan in the aftermath of Uri attack last month.

Johar tweeted, “See you at the cinemas on the 28th of this month! #AeDilKiDiwali”.

Many industry people including Om Puri, Shyam Benegal, Vikram Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt and Censor Board chief Pahalaj Nihalani have slammed the ban on the release of the film which have completed production.

Filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala says the decision of cinema owners association to not allow screening of films with Pakistani artistes was unfortunate and he would request them to reconsider the move as that will result in losses for Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India yesterday announced that it won’t release movies starring actors from Pakistan, in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa. This has put an uncertainty on the release of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” as it features Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan.

The movie, starring Aishwarya Rai, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma is slated to hit theatres on October 28.
