Karan Johar vows to stop working with Pakistani actors

Karan Johar vows to stop working with Pakistani actors

Bollywood director Karan Johar on Tuesday vowed to stop working with Pakistani artistes ahead of his soon-to-be-released  movie "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", which also stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

In a video message, the famous Indian filmmaker, said: “I beseech you to know one thing, that over 300 Indian people in my crew have put their blood, sweat and tears in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and I don't think it's fair to them to face any kind of turbulence on account of other fellow Indians."

He said he would not engage talent from Pakistan given the circumstances.  His message came days after hundreds of cinema owners decided not to screen films with Pakistani artistes to in the wake of Uri attack last month.

Indian extremist leader Raj Thackeray had threatened to vandalise cinemas that screen Johar's film.
