Ae Dil Hai Mushkil opened in October after weeks of controversy over the casting of Fawad Khan
"Filmmakers making irresponsible remarks at events..singers revelling in self importance...press releases sent to mask insecurities! Ufff....," Karan Johar tweeted
"I saw the clipping. I haven't seen the film, so let me see the film first then I will think what to do. But a public apology (from Johar) is appreciated, and also removal of the scene. Although the damage is done. Let's see what he can do from his side," said Shahid Rafi
Karan along with the film's leading ladies Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma seemed his usual witty self at a panel discussion on the film at the MAMI film festival. The filmmaker chose not to comment on the recent developments. However he did say, "Now I'm excited about my film."
