Ranbir Kapoor has also reacted on the ongoing controversy regarding the ban on Pakistani artists.

“I don’t want to sound preachy and like a healer talker but we are living in some hard times right now. I hope that you guys don’t get swept away with the bitterness and negativity, the violence that’s happening around the world and around us.”

Ranbir Kapoor’s next film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is in trouble after MNS demanded a ban on Pakistani artistes in Bollywood. The Karan Johar-directed romantic drama features Fawad Khan in a cameo. Ranbir has refrained from directly commenting on the issue and instead urged fans to remain gentle.

“I want you guys to stay sweet, gentle, amazing and beautiful. Because even though the world may think that it’s a shitty place to live in, it is beautiful. You guys are the force. And the force is going to be with you, forever.”

The actor asked the fans to hug each other as a gesture to spread love and solidarity.
