Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has come out in support of Karan Johar, whose upcoming directorial venture Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is facing trouble after cinema owners association decided to stall the release of the movie.

Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) yesterday announced that they would not screen movies starring Pakistani artistes in the four states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa.

Anurag Tweeted “The world must learn from us.. We solve all our problems by blaming it on movies and banning it.. #ADHM . With you on this @karanjohar,”

Anurag Kashyap also raised his voice on Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he wrote,

“Sir you haven’t yet said sorry for your trip to meet the Pakistani PM.. It was dec 25th. Same time KJo was shooting ADHM? Why?”

In fact, the director didn’t stop there. He tweeted a couple of more questions pointing at PM Modi. He asked him, “why is it that we have to face it while you can be silent??” adding that PM Modi actually diverted his trip to Pakistan on our tax money,while the film shot then was on money on which someone here pays interest. In an another tweet, he wrote “The world must learn from us.. We solve all our problems by blaming it on movies and banning it.. #ADHM . With you on this @karanjohar.”

 

Many industry people including Om Puri, Shyam Benegal, Vikram Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt and Censor Board chief Pahalaj Nihalani have slammed the ban on the release of the film which have completed production.

  2.  Anurag has nade a very valid point – “World must learn from us.. We solve all our problems by blaming it on movies and banning it.. ”

    Here anythink happens we 1st target films and 2nd ipl…why? Easy targets for our politicians…we janta directly or indirectly everytime support this drama.

    In this case shivsena ,nns may be directly responsible but anurag is correct in directly pointing PM as bjp is rulling in country, in maharashtra ,gujrat and goa…why they cant offer support to films when mnsbor others are targeting …when in congress raj my name is khan was banned congress had openly declared that they will ensure complete security. And in this case modi ji as usual is silent spectator…paisa fake tamasha dekh…films industry is paying one of max tax to country then why no support…and why only in bjp rulling area bans…why not in up / culcutta …waa re sarkar….anurag is right …karan started his movie when thinks were normal..i.e last year 25th dec…when same time pm had visited pak…so how is karan at fault…common janta we should have gutts to support right think….pak is our enemy but for that we should not target our own indians businessman(film businessman)
