In the aftermath of Uri attack that killed 18 Indian soldiers, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena threatened all the Pakistani artists working in India to leave the country. Ever since, the debate on the ban of artists from the neighbouring country hasn’t died down. Recently, Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) announced that they would not screen Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan in four states, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa.

A lot of people from the industry have come out in support of Johar who will bear a lot of losses if the COEAI doesn’t change its decision on the movie that’s slated to release on October 28, just two days before Diwali.

Amid the long list is filmmaker Anurag Kashyap who took to Twitter to show his support. “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” he tweeted on October 15.

However, earlier this morning, Kashyap tweeted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi hasn’t apologised for his meeting with Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in 2015 when Johar was shooting for his film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. “@narendramodi 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?” he tweeted.

But this tweet didn’t go down well with people on social media who criticised Kashyap for blaming Modi for the ban while it’s the decision of COEAI. Most of them trolled him asking to apologise for some of his films and one of the users even tweeted, “Introducing another AK who blames Modi for everything”.

Take a look.

But there were some who sided with Kashyap on his tweet.

      Why dont these stick to what they know and leave how to handle politics and terrorist to experienced people. After seeing what is happening in the USA for presidential elections, no Indians have to feel bad or ashamed about our politicians.

        Let this or any other AK, tweet what ever they wish. Modi is busy doing his work. I don't think he has any time for this stupidity. We know he hasn't taken a day off from office, since he took over at PM of the country, and useless people like Anurag and Karan has nothing else to do so they are free to say or tweet. WHO CARES

                          Modi does not need to apologise for anything. It was his job to build relationship and keep dialogues going at the time despite troubles between the countries, and risking fire loaded critics. It was a worthwhile and very commendable act and show of humanity at a personal level. Hope and patience in politics is a tremendous unnegotiable et which people in the film industry ignore, as they are very much investments orientated and risk losing Millions. It is a very self-centred tweet and he does not deserve a reply from the PM. Nationalism if far from Kashyap's mind.

                              The fellow has started trash films with lot of objectionable things and takes pleasure in blaming censors and now has audacity to blame Modi. He needs psychiatrist consultation. It has become fashionable to blame Modi for everything. Tomorrow, his car gets in accident; he will surely blame Modi

                                  Anurag kashyap has got a valid point. Banning movies which have already been shot, how can they be justified? lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;All the actors who have been inactive till now and never spoke about stani actors have suddenly become patriotic. They are just cashing in on the publicity. Fake patriotism

                                    Karan Johar will have another day to shoot and live his life, but not the 19 precious lives who lived and died for you, me, Johar and the nation. Their wives and children will miss these 19 men for the rest of their life. Banning movies of Pak actors is symbolism to show solidarity with armed forces that the nation is standing behind you. Obviously it is of no concern to you when you sit comfortably in your home and write this comment under guise of speaking on behalf of democracy. You are fake and pl don't look at mirror, because every time you will be looking at a dishonorable person.

                                      PM did the trip on behalf of the nation to try and establish peace with Pak so that nation can enjoy the peace. He has to make every effort. He did not meet Pak PM, because he is childhood friend or so. When our PM's efforts failed, he had to go to the next level and that is what he is doing now. How could this be equated with shooting a film, which is for pure personal gain for the likes of Johars and Anurags. Don't they know the difference. NO. These guys know the difference very well and for the shear hatred of the person called Mr.Modi, these guys go to the extent of being anti national. What is Karan Johar's loss. Is it worse than the 19 lives we lost in Uri attack. Karan will have another day to shoot and live his life and not those 19 precious souls who lived and died for this nation nor the kith and kin of those precious souls. It is sad that IE is giving prominent space for this useless news under the guise of fair reporting. I am sorry that those 19 souls lost their life for the souls like Anurag and Indian Express.
