Karan Johar Finally Reacts On Being Threatened For Casting Fawad Khan, A Pakistani Actor, In His Movie

Published on 25 September, 2016 at 9:58 pm By

Recently. MNS issued an ultimatum to not just Pakistani actors like Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan but to Indian film-makers too who are casting such actors in their upcoming movies-an act followed by the Uri attacks in Kashmir. Karan Johar tops the list for casting Fawad Khan in his soon-to-be-released ”Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”.

However, Karan believes that banning Pakistani artists is in not at all a solution to terrorism.

“I understand the anger and the anguish that surround us and I empathize, my heart bleeds for the lost lives. There is nothing that can justify this terrible feeling of terror. Then you are faced in a situation such as this (asking for ban on Pakistani artistes). If this was truly a solution, then one would take it. But this is not a solution.”

Attacked from a number of forces, Karan admits to feeling scared and vulnerable.

“I am not somebody who can find the answer. I am nobody in the scheme of things. I am just a filmmaker, telling a love story. Today I feel that I am a vulnerable soft target. I have faced it, felt the repercussions of it in the past, and I have constantly combated that…We make movies, we spread love. There are millions in the world, in our country who are happy with the work we do, allow us that. ”

”Sometimes, you just want to fold your hands and say, ‘We are a creative industry. Please leave us alone.”

While anger and anguish arising from Uri attacks is justified, attacking the creative industry for the same, just doesn’t feel that right.
