Ajay Devgn Backs Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Ajay Devgn has come out in support of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and is of the opinion that banning Indian films featuring Pakistani artistes is "unfair".

"Sometimes, it gets difficult to remove anybody from a film that has already been completed. I feel, when people have shot a film before an issue has happened, they should be allowed to release it," Ajay said.

Ae Dil... features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. Interestingly, Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay is all set to lock horns with the Karan Johar film this Diwali.

Ajay further went on to say that the Indian Army should be motivated in this scenario.

"We admire their (Paki artistes’) work and they admire us and our work. Right now, the situation is that our security forces are fighting and dying. So, we have a responsibility to keep their morale up. Otherwise, they will feel, we are dying here and these people are going on with their lives like nothing has happened," the actor asserted.

"So, my stand is with the security forces and my request is, till the problem is solved, it should be that way," he said.

Ajay (47) insists that he is "open" to work with Pakistani actors once the situation between the two countries "normalises".

"Once the problem is solved, I would love to work with them again. We all should work together as an exchange of culture is important. But, it cannot happen at the time when you are exchanging bullets. I respect them. They are standing by their country and we stand by ours," he said.

Asked if he thought the Pakistani actors had reacted late, Ajay said, "They have not reacted. It is a diplomatic statement. You do expect them to react."
