Bollywood film director Karan Johar has defended the Pakistani artists working in India.

While speaking to NDTV journalist Barkha Dutt he said that he was deeply hurt over the lost lives in Uri. He, however, said that banning Pakistani artists was not going to stop the incidents of terror in India.

He said, “Firstly I understand the anger and the anguish that surrounds us. I empathise and my heart bleeds for the lost lives. There’s nothing that can ever explain or justify the terrible feeling of terror… My father was a part of the freedom struggle. I’ve grown up on the stories of patriotism and valour.

“This is my country and I love it.. Then you are faced with this (demand to ban Pakistani artists). If this was truly the solution, then one would take it. But this is not the solution… I feel vulnerable even while saying this.”

Karan Johar

Amid tension in the wake of Uri terror attack, the MNS on had asked Pakistani artistes to leave immediately. Actors like Mahira Khan star Fawad Khan are hijacking the opportunities of Indian artistes, Shalini Thackeray, wife of MNS chief Raj Thackeray, said in a press conference.

Fawad Khan will have a guest appearance in upcoming release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Mahira Khan will feature in SRK’s Raees.

  1. Fully agree with Karan johar here.

    Thousands of people’s are involved in a film. But due to one or two Pakistanis you are going to takeaway from those thousands of Indians ROJI-ROTI.
    #Waah Re Tumhari Deshbhakti!!!

    • btw, film koi vikari nahi banata… Ak film flop hogi, to ei industry wale ko kuch nahi jayega.. sala sob hum logoka khun chuske is makam par aya hai.. India iz poor country. 20 crore people go hungry every day in our country. and wohi desh ki ak superstar, world me, 2nd richest man… look at the scenario, we can, kuch toh galat ho raha hai na boss.. Film Industry and cricket are ruining our country.. anyway, let’s come to the point… this is not good idea to ban those films which have already been made.. Let them release… Fir vagao in pakis ko.. they do not deserve to be here.

  3. These pakistani artists are silent on Uri attack clearly indicating that they r indirectly supporting terrorism. Boycott each nd everything that is associated with Pakistan.. these artists can b pakistani agent too.. who knows.. Y should we risk our lives? iz art more important than our lives? Again and again Pakistan proved that they are not our neighbor, they are enemy. When the country’s national security is at risk because of pak’s state sponsored terrorism, we hv to boycott each and everything related to pakistan. And boycott them too who r supporting these pak artists. we showed enough humanity and humbleness, now it’s tym to save our nation. Boycott pak or not? YES, INDEED. PERIOD!

    • woh isliye silent h qki woh indians nhi h
      aur tum jaiso ki mentality boht kharab hoti hai. har pakistani terrorist nhi hai waha par bhi aam janta rehti hai jo khud pareshan hai is terrorism se

      • abe *** jo bhi tu, sun, main janta hu ki har pakistani iz not terrorist.. there hv good people too. hamare desh me talent ki kami nahi. if they are dying to do Indian movies, told them to take citizenship of INDIA. May b they are good people lyk you think.. but May they can b pakistani terror agent too.. who knows. if our govt. take a decision, we all should support it. there hv many places to show us humanity.. our humbleness, and adapting mentality always bring chaos situation for our nation.

  4. Gayjo we indian alwayz want good relations with pak thats y u people r giving them opportunities and showing pak good in film but what they r doing…backstabbing…killing our soldiers…y cant u take indian artists…y r u dependent on Pakistanis…I know u dont care about ur country and u only want bucks…first we have2 boycott people like u and your films…Boycott adhm and raees….for us our country is first not a chameleon like u

  5. Dear Karan Johar.

    Even if we concede your point as valid. Would u like to answer few questions. Fawad khan , Mahira and Ali had condemned Paris attacks on Twitter . If you want I can provide u the tweets. The country which has given them so much love and money , shouldn’t they have written a single tweet praying for the souls of young Indian sons who were burned alive by the terrorists . Shouldn’t they have condemned the terrorists. No one is asking them to abuse Pakistan. But these very stars who came out in support of victims of terror attacks in Paris and Orlando, shouldn’t they have said atleast few words for their Indian fans too. Is it asking too much ?? And please Burkha Dutt is a shame. No point putting forward the reference of her program Bolly arena.

    • You are talking about paki artists karan johar himself did not condemn yet about Uri incident. His movie is going to release that’s why he has to say so as Fawah is having a prominent role in the movie.

  6. karan johar is right but in my opinion i can’t see those pakistani actor film whose country trained terrorist killed my country army
    its my choice i will not watch adhm main kisi k upper thop nhi rha

  7. If somebody says that pakistani actors didnt respond to terrorist attacks… because there is a valid reason… they are living in a country which sorrounds by day to day terrorist activities, bomb blasts, firing, etc…daily hundreds of people dieing in pak bcoz of terrorist attacks… they have there whole family in pakistan… and they themselves have to visit pakistan one day… we have to understand there situation…rather then boycott pakistan… we have to find a solution to end this problem of terrorism… so tht both the countries live in peace
