Ranbir Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor pakistani actors ban, fawad khan, Ranbir Kapoor fawad khan, Ranbir fawad khan, ae dil hai mushkil Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star Ranbir Kapoor seems to be in trouble after MNS demanded a ban on Pakistani artistes in Bollywood after the Uri terror attack. The Karan Johar-directed romantic drama features Fawad Khan in a cameo.

Actor Ranbir Kapoor hopes the youth of the country is not “swept away” by the violence that is happening around and continue to steer away from any bitterness.

“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.”

The actor’s next, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, seems to be in trouble after MNS demanded a ban on Pakistani artistes in Bollywood after the Uri terror attack. The Karan Johar-directed romantic drama features Fawad Khan in a cameo.

Johar had earlier said that banning artistes from across the border is not the solution to stop terrorism. Ranbir, however, 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 “Bombay Velvet” star was speaking at Close Up First Move Party here last evening.

The actor asked the fans to hug each other as a gesture to spread love and solidarity. He also sang and danced on newly launched track ‘Channa Mereya’ song from the film, which also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.

              Ranbir, Salman and others like them just need people's hard earned money to live celebrity lifestyle. They don't care about the nation and BSF Jawans at the boarder, for them their movies should make money both in stan and in Indian.....for THEIR good life, they will do anything. All heirs of film industry must think before they speak, show your talent and YES don’t preach.
