Amidst the controversy around the release of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, the director is keeping the buzz afresh with small updates every now and then. After releasing the fourth song from the film, Karan has released the first dialogue promo from the film. The dialogue promo has Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor sharing the screen space and their chemistry as best friends Alizeh and Ayan is just impeccable. But what steals the show is the dialogue itself. Anushka takes over the screen to explain the meaning of a boyfriend, which, according to her, is like films. In the promo, she says, “Boyfriends filmo ki tarah hote hai, kuch time-pass aur kuch blockbuster.”
Karan shared this promo on Twitter on his official handle. Along with the video link, the director wrote, “And the Diwali 🎉 celebrations begin…the FIRST dialogue set piece is here!! #ADHMThisDiwali http://bit.ly/ADHMdialogue1 #aedil”.
While institutions like Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India and MNS are trying to stall the release of the film, Karan has not stopped from promoting it. The film is scheduled to hit the screens on Diwali, October 28.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil faced a backlash after MNS demanded a ban on all the movies starring Pakistani artistes and threatened them to leave India. COEAI had announced that they would not screen movies starring Pakistani artistes in the four states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa. The decision taken by the COEAI mainly covers single-screen theatres and comes amid tensions between India and Pakistan in the aftermath of the Uri attack last month.
