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.
