Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to apologise for his trip to Pakistan. The filmmaker has stepped into the ongoing debate regarding the ADHM row. He has stood up for the release of Karan Johar’s romantic saga that is at present being banned by political parties and the theater owners.

Karan Johar’s directorial venture ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is facing a ban by the Cinema Owners Association, for casting Fawad Khan. They have announced that no screening of the movies starring Pakistani artists will happen in 4 states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa.

  • Earlier the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena had issued an ultimatum to Pakistani actors working in the country, asking them to leave within 48 hours. They had led a protest against Karan Johar and Salman Khan who spoke in favor of the Pakistani actors.

    Now Anurag Kashyap has gone ahead and asked the PM of the country to apologise for his trip to Pakistan on December 25, which was the same time that Johar was busy shooting for ADHM.

    The film fraternity is very much divided on the issue. Not only Kashyap, but also Shyam Benegal, Om Puri, Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt have severely criticised the ban of the film that has finished production.

      Stupid tweet. does not deserve a reponse. has the PM made a statement on it. it is strange that every tom dick and harry seeks response from the PM. It shows his low IQ, awareness and ignorance. who has banned it? the Govt or the theatre owners? does he want to improve his stature by seeming to be asking a question to the PM?, if he wants to do that, he must ask someone to give him relevant question which deserves the attention of the country’s PM. Let us not comment further on Mr Anurag’s ignorance.
