There was a strong buzz around Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The controversy surrounding the casting of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in the movie kept it in news for over a month.

Karan Johar had eventually posted a video and tried to clarify his stand. Besides the protests, the absence of Aishwarya Rai from film promotions and special screening also kept ADHM in news.
