Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on Sunday extended his support to Karan Johar for his next directorial venture ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, which is currently facing a ban by the Cinema Owners Association, for casting Fawad Khan. The Cinema Owners Association of India, on Friday, announced that no screening of the movies starring Pakistani artists will happen in 4 states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa. Bollywood has been divided on the issue of working with Pakistani artists following their failure to condemn the Uri terror attack.

Earlier the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena had protested outside Karan Johar’s residence, demanding that actor Fawad Khan leaves the country. Actor Salman Khan then spoke in favour of the Pakistani artists working in India and said that it is the government that provides them with working visas after complete verification of their documents. Besides, India still hasn’t stopped all the trade relations with the troubled neighbours. Karan Johar too had said that the artists were only a soft target and removing them from the industry would not help in stopping further attacks.

But Anurag Kashyap went a step ahead and condemned Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he did not apologise for his visit to Pakistan on December 25, which was the same time that Johar was busy shooting for ADHM. In a series of tweets, Kashyap expresses his views on the matter.

With Kashyap taking Karan Johar side on the matter, it is yet to be seen if the India film fraternity gets further divided. Apart from Kashyap, many other prominent figures like Shyam Benegal, Om Puri, Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt have severely criticised the ban of the film that has finished production.
