According to the rumours, the scenes which have been chopped have Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in close proximity. However, Dharma has denied the news and said the film has been passed without any cut, intimate or otherwise. A reliable source from Dharma Productions has slashed every rumour saying that no changes are being made in the film. “There are no cuts being made to the film. No changes of any sort, as being reported. The film will release on October 28,” said the source.

Earlier, there was speculation that Karan Johar might tweak the scenes featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan or might replace him with Saif Ali Khan after the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) threatened to stop the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in Maharashtra in the aftermath of Uri attack. However, the source confirmed that this is not the case. “Fawad is not being replaced,” the source said.

The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) issued fresh threats on Monday (October 10) to filmmakers Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt, saying that they would beat them up if they continue to work with Pakistani artists. Earlier the party had demanded that Johar should Fawad Khan’s scenes from the film.

MNS party, following the Uri attack that killed 19 Indian soldiers, issued an ultimatum to Pakistani artistes to leave the country and threatened they won’t let any Bollywood films with Pakistani actors release. Following that, the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association passed a resolution to avoid working with Pakistani artistes until bilateral tensions between the two countries subside.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead roles and Fawad Khan in a pivotal role, is just two weeks away from its release. The film, which releases on Diwali, October 28 this year, faces a box-office clash with Shivaay starring Ajay Devgn.

    Hey you 3rd world people, don't try to justify your uncivilized mentality by dragging in what USA did in 1980s. Boycotting yourself from the Olympics is totally different than giving a 48 Hrs warning ( get out or will be beaten up) to others. India didn't ban the $3.5 bill trade with stan in which India benefits are more than 70%. There are cricket matches coming up too. stan is still the most favored nation of India so India can keep the UN seat. stani diplomat still sits in Delhi and vice versa. The student exchange program is still on. This hate campaign against Fawad and Mahira are result of well planned strategy. Firstly, Bollywood is a two way trade and not a charity or an altruism. India makes 3x times more money by hiring pak actors. Your 30% overseas audience is stanis living in Pak , UK, USA, Canada, Dubai, Europe. Bollywood is simply following the economics formula of cost effective supply and demand. Cut these lies of cultural exchange. It started to sound like a charity given to stani actors. Secondly, this w jingoistic parade against Fawad and Mahira is a result of fear that they might make big in Bollywood. Recently, stani movies like Actor in Law and Janaan send shivers down to North Indian cinema. India wnats to keep the monopoloy over North Indian entertainment. Any wonder why even news free politics free channels like Coke Studio, HUM and Urdu 1 are also ban in India. Mahira Khan's movie Bin Roye was banned in India, last year and not after Uri attacks. It wasn't a Gaddar, Veer Zara or Phantom but a simple love story between a stani couple. India has been stealing stani music and scripts since 1960s. No Indian director ever invited stani to Bollywood. This invitation and Zee zindigi started after the invention of YouTube when people started uploading the works of stani talent and it caused much embarrment to Bollywood. It was decided to invite the singers and actors, cash their pority and control the North Indian cinema simultaneously. BtW there are many Indian actors and singers who have worked in stani plays and movies. Mika Singh does concerts every year in stan and earns money. Your media avoids such news but do Google.
