Famous Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap came forward in support of Karan Johar and his film, “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” which is featuring Pakistani actor, Fawad Khan.

“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,” Kashyap tweeted.
Going one step further, Kashyap also questioned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as to why he hasn’t apologized for meeting the Pakistani Prime Minister the same time when Karan was shooting for ‘ADHM.’ He tweeted, “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?”
