Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan restricted from talking to media about ‘ADHM’ and ‘Raees’
Karan Johar and team ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ are sighing in relief as Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has agreed to let the film release in peace. However, they do not want any more troubles. We hear Fawad Khan has been strictly instructed not to open his mouth in front of the press regarding the controversy, no matter how many times he is asked about it.
The same is applicable for Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who features in Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’.
“The makers of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Raees’ have banned Fawad, Imran and Mahira from giving any interviews. All the three stars have been given clear instructions that everywhere they go, they will be asked about the issue (the ban on Pakistani artistes in India) but they should avoid it. In fact, the makers have told them not to interact with the media because they don’t want their (Fawad or Mahira’s) view be misconstrued, which could spoil things further,” a source told a popular website.
MNS, headed by politician Raj Thackeray, opposed release of both ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Raees’ as they star two actors from Pakistan. This followed after an unfortunate terror attack, allegedly initiated by Pakistani terrorists, took place in Uri.
Fawad and Mahira were criticised as they stayed mute instead of condemning the attack. However, later they both took to social media and said they wholeheartedly condemned any act of terror and killing, across the world.
‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ hits the screens on 28th October while ‘Raees’ is set for a release on 26th January, 2017.
